    I have fond memories of Digby running all sorts of interesting lines off Quade

    Lots of interesting things happened when Quade was on the field. Some of them were pretty good.:rolleyes:

    Interesting. Phillips rumoured to be going to France, but his contract covered 2021. I guess it'll depend on whether the Rebels can prove they can honour the contract. However, technically he is signed for the future therefore he goes back into my squad.

    Perhaps even a starter with LSL? Blyth on Bench?

    I just overheard Nic White's father in law in the local cafe here in Mudgee telling the owner that Nic will be returning later in the year to play in the tests. It's probably not a surprise, just confirmation.

    Found this online (probably earlier than it was meant to be). Looks pretty schmick but not sure why Asics have persisted with the "stubby cock" collar design from last season.

    2018 collar design was a lot more fan friendly.

    Home Jersey just looks like the RWC one without the RWC logo.

    I just restarted my Kayo subscription now that Super rugby is on its way back. Having a skim through, I see they’ve got a 3 game package of recent Aus-Eng Tests - the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Twickenham matches. My god we played absolutely headless rugby. Plenty of exciting moments but absolutely zero composure. We all know this of course but after not watching any rugby for awhile our huge flaws are even more obvious. Bring on Dave Rennie.

    Wait until you have to watch the 100000th replay of Ireland vs Australia in the San Francisco 7s from two years back. No idea why that's the game of all games they choose to replay at halftime during live events. Must be a sick joke by an Irish producer or something.

    I’m not sure. The cafe owner told me that’s who he was. I knew Nic’s sister lived here, she goes out with the Wombats first grade hooker.

    Wonder if Rodda will get a new RA deal in time for Wallaby games (though how he would train idk).

    If not, Blyth has rapidly gone from a smokey for a final squad spot, to almost a guaranteed starter (if Hockings & Phillips go abroad and Rodda isn't contracted)

    I remember sitting at the Test v Scotland 3 years ago today at Allianz with a few other of the GAGR faithful (Reg, BaaBaa and Gagger from memory) and watching the warm-ups and making this same observation. Scotland ran a slick, accurate warm-up; few errors. The Wallabies were loose, throwing passes behind / in front / over each other; aimless kicks etc...
    It did not end well that day.

    Really not sold on Blyth. There are plenty of players I would be putting ahead of him for the Wallabies.

    Needs another 2 years of consistent Super Rugby before he gets the nod.

    The result of the game was terrible too.

    Happy to hear who you think.

    Phillips - If going to Pau, wouldn't bother picking him
    Hockings - Gone
    Jones - Gone
    Rodda - Not eligible
    Neville - Had ankle surgery but was doing very well and heard a rumour he is around next year. Age counts against him (31)
    Simmons - Should be reconsidered due to experience and is around next year. Age counts against him (31)
    LSL - guaranteed.
    Swain - Not as good as Blyth but has potential.
    Enever - MAY be as good but not the potential of Blyth
    Staniforth - Not as good & not the potential of Blyth
    RHP - Not as good & not the potential of Blyth
    Holloway - Not as good & not the potential of Blyth
    Hosea - Nope
    Mccauley - Nope
    Haangana - Nope

    So for me at this stage our best 4 locks that are worth picking would be:
    Blyth, LSL, Simmons, Neville.

    *I'd pick Phillips if he is staying

    Fuck me, we're short of locks. Get Big Kev out of retirement.
