Grist, I know you're just after bites. I usually still visit these boards, even with my absence. I'm sure you love rugby like the rest of us mate, but geez you say some outlandish things. The PI team argument is so old now. Name the players in our team tonight who were born in the PI? You do realise that guys like Kevy and Aaron Smith, just because they're dark skinned it doesn't mean they were born in the Islands? New Zealand born and bred. Now, if you wanna see some real poaching, go ask Kiwi Deans and Kiwi Gatland. Well, you're from South Africa aren't ya Grist? Go ask Kiwi Mitchell at the Lions. Idiot.
Dan is out for the year .. don't know where you got that from? Hes out but not for the year. Lol. Bit of wishful thinking Grissy.
Ireland didn't turn up - sure. I accept that. But look at it with both eyes open for once, we won very narrowly last week. It's ultimately a test of character. No Nonu, no Read, no Carter, debutants and newbies running about. Not a bad effort I'd say. As for the Springboks ... what do you mean they are huge this year? The SA Super 15 teams have been an utter joke, with the exception of the Stormers. And even the Stormers look VERY beatable at home. Very. But the national side - hmm, yep, they've been getting the job done on England. Good on em. Stupid thing is though, you tell us not to get excited but if SA posted 60 points you wouldn't let us hear the end of it.
But - yes. Well done on beating the Baby Blacks ;)
