Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

I didn’t know that the Brums were sponsored by AIG? We need penetration in the mid field, preferably at 13. Both Kerevi and Petaia can provide it. Having Kerevi at 13 with Petaia at 15 would be even better and give us more line breaking ability. Paisami and Ikitau were well contained by the young F...

Re: Turned 36. Too old to start playing again?

Your age is fine buddy.
My cardio is still non existent and I can’t bring myself to go for a jog on my own.
This is the problem. ;)

I was playing in Stockholm until I was 38. Which team are you looking at?

Yep, it was the ref that made a meal of it. If the ref had assessed that there was nothing in it, why would he have brought the red card out?
