    The Moana Pasifika Franchise

    Think they could well battle with Drua for wooden spoon to RN, but as you say squad will improve over the tears , and for both teams I thinking. I think they are light on tighties to be too competitive, but not sur of who else they got coming on.

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    Lol no mate, I meant what you said how ABs were going to keep score low, under orders from Silver Lake ,(love to know what a blow out score is if that was keeping it low) I love the way you call it my bid too, hate to tell you I not in US, would much prefer Oz to get it because I will get to it...

    League of Nations or EOYT?

    Of course I like Morgan myself, and always take notice of his judgement of players etc ,he just amused me on Rugby heaven when he would say my contacts have told me etc, usually when they were a bit wrong. Never about teams but what he hears about behind scenes etc.

    League of Nations or EOYT?

    I have read similar in another post in another forum also by an Australian poster, that USA only had 1 training run. I saw a news item of them training early last week, and haven't seen this anywhere else, so is it something that Oz press has come up with or just a internet thing? (sounds like a...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    Was interested to hear Ric Salizzo talking on Breakdown last night, he in New York and heavily involved in US rugby, and he only talked about 31 WC, which is pleasing, hopefully that remains their main attempt. Was actually interesting to here how he was saying US rugby is actually almost 2...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    I reckon it would be risky, but not sure if it because I keen on it being in Oz, so finding reasons for it not to work in US, but I do remember reading on rugby forums before event what a flop Japan was going to be because it was supposedly going to be played in front of empty stadiums. I...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    Mate I was talking about beginning of cup, and as I know the fella pretty well, I think I know who would be full of shit! He said it picked up when it got going, perhaps he lived in different part of London to you or something!

    Northern Tours 2021 - NZ, SA, etc

    I think Lord, like Vai'i probably have the potential to having a higher ceiling in ability than Pari Pari etc have, I thought PPP was bees knees, but doesn't seem to of come on as I had thought. I like the look of young Sam Parry to. I think Lord could develop into a Lurch type lock and be as...

    Wallabies v Japan, Oita - 23 October, 3:45pm AEDT

    Well if the international commentator and former test player didn't know the ruling, it says very little about his knowing the basic laws of the game of rugby!!

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    The Fella from AS rugby on tv here tonight was talking only about 27 WC:( . but to be fair that maybe because nominations for 31 aren't been takenas yet.

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    To be fair RR, a mate I knew in Pommy land said at the start of the 2015 WC rugby was pretty invisible for any but rugby people in London too. And we did have all the naysayers say exactly same thing about Japan hosting it too, so I think it will all come down to what will do the game worldwide...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    Hope that is still case, I always thought Aus 27 and US 31 would be way to go, as I said in earlier post with Poms saying they wanted 31 WC, I wondered if that would push US more towards 27. I really believe it will hinge on Poms not messing it up. But now US has had a crack at 27 I guessing...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    Well that rates as one of strangest posts. It's not my Bid, you know that don't you? I thought it was worth mentioning as it will impact the Aus bid which I think is odds on favourite at moment. I did wonder if there had been talk, between US and Poms, as originally I thought the Yanks were...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    I wondered if this would happen, and will certainly be interesting. USA having a go with it. Much as I was/am keen on Aussie's bid I can see a hell of a lot of upside to USA having it. Could be huge for the game...

    The Moana Pasifika Franchise

    And todays announcement is Lincoln McCluthie, he one of the ones that can't play for Samoa/Tonga, but a bloody good buy!

    Northern Hemisphere 2021-22

    Yep Dc, I hardly think Louis could ever be considered a loss, he probably more Italian than Aus, but like young Dolly, they not really a loss unless they almost knocking on the door of Wallaby selection. Same as all the players that grew up in NZ and went overseas before they made a name for...
