Great analogy Numpts. Plenty of merit in that..

England are coming and maybe only Jones knows what he’s sending our way

A barista got my coffee order wrong the other day Goeff, naturally I put that down to the woeful captain as well. 🙄

He’s got a lot of questions to answer about invading Ukraine as well…

Really good post Adam.

Reckon this sums up the nagging thought in back of a lot of minds nicely..

Great point BS.

Only the closeness to the next RWC might be the saving grace..

It’s a funny one Mzil. Can you really be absent if a). you’re suspended, and b). you’ve only spent three weeks in the national squad in the last five years?

So well put…

It’s about as full strength as he can get Muz, though I do note the RFU have gone to some length to list the injuries and unavailabilities – whish is ten or a dozen for this tour..

If it was easy to pick some kind of plan out of what they were running against the BaaBaas, then sure, you cuold give him the benefit of the doubt with his record.

But I don’t know, it just doesn’t look like they know. At least not yet.

But could that actually be the plan?

I wouldn’t have thought NZ v Ireland would be on FTA in Australia Joe, no..

What about the lack of RA response rubbishing reports, Markus?

Would that count as evidence?

Righto gang, first scoring play and time of match – GO!

Blackadder is impressive in whatever number, in fairness!

I get why it’s worked out this way, but it’s hard to imagine Christie not being a starting 7 at pretty much any other team..

Oui, Mzil. Oui… 😛

Nothing surer ATW!

And well don’t for noticing, bonus point for you.. 😁

Christie made a crazy number of tackles himself last week, Highlander!

Still quite surprising he’s not a regular starter..

I love that now it’s argument over who hates who more… 😁

I’ve never been more nervous about a Blues tip, Ricco.

That’s just the truth..
