    Emerging Talent Thread

    I don't know if there is a thread like this, but I thought rather than creating multiple threads every once in a while we can all share this thread to post about talent coming through the ranks. So please add your own. I've heard people raving about this kid called Damian Willemse, he is on...

    What are your foreign impressions?

    Springboks v All Blacks, Ellis Park 25/7/2015

    Should be a good game. Think Lambie should start at 15 ahead of le Roux with le Roux on the bench and then to spring a surprise Heyneke must include the man who has had much success against the All Blacks by starting Heinrich Brussouw (I'm not that big a fan of him but maybe it helps...

    Wales play at home every 8 years?

    Ok, so I've just read that the IRB are seriously considering to give Wales home games at the beloved Millennium Stadium during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Strange considering how many times in the past this has happened already and there is an obvious pattern here. It would seem the RFU asked...
