You think shane? I would be gutted after watching de allende and kriel. I can sort of understand that he wants to see JdV and fourie, and Fdp, in a bok jersey vs pumas (I dont think they have any other test after that?) but imo the old guys would have to play the house down to take their spot back.
plus these 2, kriel and de allende are yiung and are based jn SA.. for me only players who are outstandingly better than the locals should be picked ahead. Not as good or even thd same, you shouldnt make the team. Thats why I feel brussow, Louw or burger have showed enough in the last couple of weeks.
Good on you johnno, we all have to cultivate our feminine side so a bit of art and history at versailles will do !! ;)
And as an aside we also have an equivalent to the beach yoh always mention to harry its called le Cap d'Agde and its in the south near montpellier. Not sure yiu want to go there with your gf though... (well except if you're an arty/ swinger that is!)
I thought average peter. I reckon cheika would have subbed him if toomua hadnt left the field.
I think I will give foley a 5 (or maybe a 4!) when we get to mark the players ;). It will be interesting to see who has improved from week 1 go 2.
