Google chromecast and Now TV works like a dream.

Most players work much better through the chromecast than using the smart tv apps in my experience.

Can see why he has selected Brown on the wing. Eddie wants to give Daly a run at 15 but I suspect SA are going to put up loads of bombs. Hence, having Brown on the wing to act as a second fullback fielding high balls rather than Solomona. I don't agree with it though, if he is concerned about high b...
