    When can we expect a side to be named?

    Assume tomorrow if we keep to the 48 hour routine.

    Mate 100% agree. I had the pleasure of seeing him live when he was at the Blues as well as at the 2003 RWC in which he ripped up.

    I would take him in his prime over any other strike winger. He was absolutely phenomenal. His combination of acceleration, top end speed, balance, ability to step off both feet and generally exceptional skills/hands were unique in that I cannot ever recall seeing anyone quite at the same level.

    One of those player you just could not help but smile when you watched.. even if he was playing against your lifelong team. Just his mechanics when he ran were mesmerising.

    ---Admins sorry but couldn't help myself.

    I was hoping for another controlled leak in the papers today.

    Yeah true, have to wait another 14 hours. These forums have been surprisingly quiet.

    Wonder if we'll see any smokeys in the 23.

    I expect the forward pack stays the same. I believe Simone and DHP come in the backline. JP at 13.

    Pretty much thinking the same. I wonder if they will rotate the front row to finish with a more dynamic pack. That's probably it for the piggies. Plus Lolesio on the bench with Hodge. Probably Samu as backrow reserve.

    I demand the banhammer for this shameless fawning over a member of the darkness

    That's not true Rokocoko started multiple games on the right wing for the Blues in 2003 when Caucau was on the left.

    Saving our stupid kicks for the end of the game? ;)

    Seriously tho this is the best option - AAA can lay down a marker on the scrum against Moody, then later in the game Tupou's running impact will probably be needed on a damp track against a more tired opposition

    Word is Moody isn't playing (concussion) and Big Karl will start for ABs with Hodgman off the bench.

    Yes, that is correct. He debuted for the Wallabies on the 2005 EOYT but didn't play Super Rugby until 2006.


    Giteau played Super Rugby in 2001 and then debuted in 2002.
