Re: Untrustworthy Saffas slink away from RC

I'm disappointed if that's what happens. But I didn't have much hope the Boks would be up to much anyway, our players only have 2 or 3 games under their belt, the European based players a lot more but it would've mostly been SA based players. Big call, plenty of money lost, likely no tests before th...

If the Boks don't play, it's because they're unable to. There was a Bok A v B team match, so the plan was to play. Not many of the players have played more than two games since lockdown (guess the Europe based players have played more?), the logistics of quarantine and being able to train together i...

NZR will have some versions of both NPC and a smaller Supe. I don't think Mitre-10 (NPC) can be the preferred NZ model for replacing SR. But, again, that's up to them. Their current SRA sides + an extra privately-funded side in Auckland is effectively 6 NZ teams ... and IMO their maximum (short of ...
