Was Maddocks good?
Beating Fiji for the men, and NZ for the girls, both great results.
But I see qualifying for the Olympics as a given, not something to be celebrated.
It is a stretch to imagine your scenario.
NZ & Fiji have both finished top 4 every year since at least 2000.
Samoa have finished top 4 twice in last 10 years.
Even if we can’t beat Samoa in Oceana, we still get the repecharge to beat the other also rans.
If we can’t do that, they need to blow the joint up and start again.
Can't see why they get two cracks at it when Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland have to rely on Ringinland earning qualification for Team Great Britain
Yeah, seems like they're not huge lads. Are there many big boppers playing sevens in the backs to choose from?That’s a very small backline, they are going to have to score plenty of points to win games.
