Matchbox 20, Hinder, Seether and Creed most likely did. That shows the quality of the Rock for you.

It’s a bizarre thread. Second post in and he’s listing Saffers turning out for other teams. A third of the number NZ has. We’ve already got a SA player mass exodus thread :?

To be honest I waited for AC to start one. WP has been knocked out of the CC, so we move on to the WC.

Next post will be the Bok C team.

I can write filofaxes and post haka and a lot of history kak.

All that matter is my prediction for WC 2019.

The two teams that play on 21 September 2019 in pool B will meet in the final again. The loser on the 21st will win the WC.

Here. First.

It upsets, even annoys you both? Oom is likely on the right track then. Imagibe if some impertinent Mod were to sticky the thread out of sheer spite. You first two images don't seem to be loading for some reason Oom?

Also only three/four decent refs and no decent TMOs. World rugby's current crop of officials are really quite poor.

Dankie Oom -

Kan jy asseblief die skool van die Suid Afrikaners ook insit?

Veral ons oorsese lesers sal baie geintereseer wees.

Each country needs an obligatory ‘hot woman’ rule 1 as mascot.
Champions exempt of course from such qualifying needs.

Is it just me who can't see the 'pools and fixtures' or 'business end' (wondering what picture that could be) pictures in the OP?

Here are a couple of photos of the stadium in Kumagaya during the captain's runs. This is where Japan will play the Boks tomorrow and is the site of several RWC matches.

The turf was installed only a few months ago but there is no reason why it should be cutting up like this.

EDIT: Just checked with the grass maker and this turf was installed in April 2018, plenty of time for the root base to be well established. Problem is that the turf maintenance company looking after it decided not to do winter overseeding, and the reasonable use over the winter season has obviously damaged the summer grass.

Also only three/four decent refs and no decent TMOs. World rugby's current crop of officials are really quite poor.


Full on, you are a retard. :lol:

One of those guys who thinks he funny, but really, hes just a cum rag.

It seems to make sense to keep posts related to the stadium all in this thread.


So me one asked about hybrid turf. The Yokohama int’l was but it was an utter abortion so has had new turf laid in the last couple of weeks.

Tokyo Stadium (venue for the opening match) is hybrid installe over the objections of the head ground keeper I’m not sure how good this will be.

I’ll check about other stadiums and let you all know.

Is this to be the first World Cup ever where France will fail to make it to the QF?

I am afraid it could well be...

My specialist just called so here is the status of each pitch.

Kumagaya and Hanazono are 100% natural turf and all the rest have hybrid turf, a mixture of the different products available. Yokohama Int'l had new turf laid a couple of weeks ago on the hybrid base and they replaced the maintenance company.
