Well, they probably would have missed the World Cup if not for the eligibility shitshow. But you have to laugh at whoever wanted Kieran Crowley out at this point.


No doubt. Spain or Romania would have easily dispatched of them from the looks of things. That wasn't exactly a vintage Eagles performance in the backs, at least. Iosefo looked lost and Davies' kicking would have been punished by a more clinical side. Forwards fronted up and dominated the set piece, but it's hard to say if that was more due to the Canucks or our pack.

You mean the Pro14 coach of the year? Common! Everyone knows Kingsley Jones is 100x the coach Crowley is :D

I anticipate us going 0-4 the RWC. We are a long ways off putting 72 points on Namibia circa 2003.

I just realized I said we beat Namibia 72-11 in 2003. It was actually 1999, even better!

Ah, 1999 ... the last good RWC team? 20-33 to France, lost by Fiji to a bit more, but I remember the France game being back and forth. Even had a good game against a first choice English side in the build up to the tournament ... 11-36 was the final score. The next crop of players, though not nearly as bad as the current lot, would give up much more - even double that - to England Saxons.

When our pack had teeth to back up the bark ...

Baugh was like the Canuck Jerry Collins. Too bad he didn’t play more tests.
