Neil Back, Englishbob, and the Viking are probably not liking the omission of Ford. What does he have to do?

Six Nations: Eddie Jones goes big on rookies, backs Owen Farrell

Thick skinned. He will be a force in the next two years. Like it or not, here he comes!

'Wild and kicking arse': What Boks fans want from rejuvenated Rassie - South Africa’s brilliant rugby rascal

Agree. Gelant is more the footballer. Fassi will win most aerial battles and all speed races. But needs to work on positioning.

They do seem to trust Jesse K a lot. Agree on getting Andre into the squad to work on his defence. That’s the part JN doesn’t love about him

Watch the two matches prior to that. MOTM territory. But yes on how good Andre E is going. I’d use him in June, but DdeA versus NZ/Rc.

Nick Berry is going to be just fine. Craig Joubert has a top post at World Rugby. He was absolutely thrown under the bus by IRB. Life goes on. It really does.

Thanks, Madkiwi. One of the most fascinating men in rugby. Warts and all.

He’s not contrite. He will be loud in 2023.

Well, my article points out Rassie bullied, crossed the line, made a mistake, and is a rascal. Hardly agitprop.

Mo, the exact “down/up” conditions of that test may be hard to replicate, but Nick B analysed what OZ brought to that match and it was a smart attack, folding and wrapping.

8: there are several potential successors. But Duane is looking awesome at Ulster. A good problem?

Anti-banal! Love that. Yes. Rugby is a bit stodgy. Eddie and Rassie and I dare say Galthie and Rennie too—can heat up 2022/23. Rascals all.

Shaun E has proved it longer, Nick. Have to say he is best. But JN does have an extraordinary record building too—stingy to say the least.

'Wild and kicking arse': What Boks fans want from rejuvenated Rassie - South Africa’s brilliant rugby rascal

Yes, it’s a tough way to try to be the “head” coach

'Wild and kicking arse': What Boks fans want from rejuvenated Rassie - South Africa’s brilliant rugby rascal

We thought we’d begin the post-ban phase and see how it goes! Haha!

Exaaaaaaactly

The three types of rugby referees and why they're all always right

Good shout. Classy squad that. Knew how to win the close games

Honestly, I’m looking forward to England-Ireland and England-France as much as I am looking forward to any RC test. Tasty!

Great point! SA’s 09 3N team was magisterial. No way around them. But fast as hell too. NZ: just about every year!!!! I’d defer to my Aussie hosts on the best WB team.

Think he only played in school. Good ref

I should’ve mentioned Ben. Great player

Charlie also played a bit at 10. Utility man.

Cheers, MZ. I agree. Ireland won’t be beaten easily. Depth at front row is absurd!

Yes, the story of player rebellion just as they reached their highest heights is a classic French tale.
