It was only ever a matter of time before he couldn't resist the urge to drag a team from being useless to remotely acceptable. I hear he respects lesbians so much he could kiss them.

Apropos of nothing, I've decided to christen FOLK, St Vitus. FOLK, ya St Vitus dancer.

Anyone know if St Vitus lives in Sydenham with someone called Chorea?

With the downsizing of super rugby, we are in a relatively fortunate position, in that there may be a late run of players becoming available.
Any other year, we'd be stuffed at this late stage.

At this late stage if I was told we were getting both Sean Dougall AND Dom Ryan I'd be contend. Mind I'd want both not one or other.

I don't really follow Super Rugby, who are the clubs that will be the likely casualties?

My understanding is with the exception of the Melbourne Rebels who are privately owned the other Australian clubs are owned by the union. Does this mean that even if a club is scrapped thats owned by the union their players now without a club are still contracted to the union? Therefore could be reassigned to another club? Just second guessing this could be possible..... ?

Neither of them are what we need. Powerful ball carrier is the key is the number one requirement.

I'd imagine their contracts allow for cancellation in the event of a team or teams folding. Probably some contrived compensation formula.

then maybe we have got lucky with Botha because he doesn't appear to be that big ball carrier we need.... CharlesP made more yards in one match that Botha did throughout the 2016 and 2015 seasons combined.

Botha never was a big ball carrier anyway so no surprise

Not what Marcell said lads, and Cockers FFS, a wing or fullback will run back 150-200 metres on a great day, try doing that up the middle into a shower of big Saffer ballixes.

Stockdale carried about 120 metres in 18 minutes in Swansea FFS. Not world record pace admittedly, my racing snail would be close to that after a good feed. >EW
