Re: Laporte - Best Player ever I have coached

That Baby Eating lock position is the hardest one to fill in rugby. Makes a massive difference to a team having someone of that size going about creaming rucks on their own and absolutely loving the biff. I think the days of the enforcer lock are long gone. If they ever existed. NZ won RWC's in 201...

Re: Bokke continue to dominate.

The Boks coming from absolutely nowhere to win RWC 2019 has left lasting damage it seems. Chin up chaps, only 2 years before the next one.

Vermaak is no Kitshoff, but scrum dominance is not the doing of only 1 player. I still expect WP to edge the scrums.

Malherbe is the real scrumming machine.
