Looking forward to the final. Pretty sure the Bokke will give it their best shot. Nerves is sky high.

So I guess A. Smith will be playing 80.

Christie isn't that bad a player Derps. he will go ok when he comes on.. And that from me the Roigard cheerleader after seeing Roigard for 20 minutes preseason!
I reasonably happy with AB team named ,even if personally I would of had Coles on bench.

I wouldn't want to wish injury upon anyone but I really want to see this 7-1 bench come back to bite Sth Africa in the arse so we can see all the backrowers play in the backline and Cheslin at half back
Id love to see Kwagga burn Jordie in the backline

Is this because you don’t like South Africa or don’t like a 7-1 bench split?

SJK & Goldie have the brollies out side-line & doesn't look like bokke have made any last-minute change(s) to their bench so it'll be their up-front grind then kick/chase attack & rush defence then flood the breakdown game plan AB have hopefully been preparing for all week.

Edit: not sure where it came from (probably the same place as "RMo's injured") but during the week it was rumoured that bokke would change to a 5/3 bench on Matchday if conditions weren't as forecast.

^ sadly I think you're right. But as my dad used to say, "there's more than one way to skin a cat, son"...

LOL a Ben Stiller impersonator to get things going...

Sam has that look on his face he had pre-QF. I'm hoping that's an omen!

Less Goh! (Pasifika Kiwi for "Let's Go!" since about the time of last year's Women's RWC).

Didn't even know that was an offence tbh, not that I'm necessarily against it. Does anyone know what, if any, criteria there is for it becoming a red card?

A YC to Frizell inside three minutes could have a major impact.

I mean. If you have to cop one then it's the best time to do it tbh.
