Dave Dennis calls for ARU to change the eligibility rules

Am all for being able to pick overseas based players but still find Dennis explanation a bit light and rather naive, especially the 'looking to potentially come back and play SR within a certain time frame' bit. Too vague for me. All players can say ' yep, potentially I wouldnt mind coming back in a few years time '. Whether they will actually do it is another story so there is a loophole that could lead to major issues if players 'promise' they want to come back, get selected for the wallabies while overseas and finally chnage their mind and dont come back. Imo if the aru wants to go onto this path they have to be clear cut.

Battling adversity: Two Springbok loose forwards show the way

Agree Rhino. I remember reading an interview from a Bulls team mate of bakkies long time ago and the guy was saying that he knew by looking at BB changing in the dressing room that nothing bad was going to happen to him or his team mates on the pitch with a bloke like BB in the team. And am talking long time ago, bakkies was probably in his mid-20s. there is just something about him, not only the size but the way he carries himself.

That's a great homage to Burger Harry, and wonderfully written with that. Am always deeply saddened whenever I read or hear something about the crime that's destroying so many SA women and their families :(
