Centres - :scratch:
Every other position - :shock:
You haven't seen me at my best yet. Let's be honest, you probably never will.

Ill definitely watch Chiefs v Crusaders on Saturday. Kieran Read due to play.

Lots of rookies on show this year and none bigger than Volavola.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the Jaguares get on, think they will cause quite a few upsets especially at home with the majority of the Argentine national team playing for them. Exited to see the big winger Montero back playing as he missed the WC through injury.

Should be an interesting competition with the new Argentinian and Japanese sides. Each team plays 15 games - there are 4 divisions - the Aussie teams (5), NZ teams (5), Africa 1 (4) - Bulls, Cheetahs, Stormers and the Sunwolves (Jap) and Africa 2 - Kings, Lions, Sharks and the Jaguares (Arg).

Seeds 1-4 in the Playoffs are the winners of each division. Seeds 5-8 (Wildcards) include the team with the highest points in Africa 1/2 combined that failed to win either division + the next 3 teams with the highest points in Aus/NZ combined that failed to win either division. League phase runs from Feb 26 - Jul 16 (breaking for the summer tour matches in June). Playoffs start 22 Jul and run through to Aug 6.

Taking the Jaguares as an example - they play the other teams in their division Africa 2 home and away and then play a mixture of home and away games v the 4 teams in Africa 1 and the 5 teams in the NZ division.

What are attendances like in Super Rugby? (Excuse my laziness, I'm sure some of you have a good feel for this, without me trying to take a good sample of match reports to get an understanding).

Big stadiums. Look like shocking attendance. Actually regularly more than Ulster

You know what, that looks OK :lol: Thought Cory Jane was in diffs again ????

This year as always I shall mainly be supporting "our club" the Sharks and then any SA or Oz team against the tyrants, but of course this season we have Los Jaguares led by the magnificent Augustin Creevy, one of the Cregagh Road CReevy's I believe, so I will also be hoping they make an impact.

Of the NZ teams I've always like the Canes, but they have a habit of screwing up, even in good years.

You should model it & post it Hairy, then as a bisexual man with a family motto of "Any ould port in a storm", I'll decide how sexy it is. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Top end of Pro12 level I think Yin, occasionally biggies for some derbies but far from all.
