Brass instruments are so under-rated in today’s society, I’d love to be able to play the trombone to a decent level.

I was really struggling to stay asleep for nearly a year, tried all sorts of things to try and break out of it.

Re: Damien McKenzie to miss the RWC

was thinking earlier it is a shame Banks won't be capped. He has been pretty solid since Sopoaga left. You don't need your emergency 10 to be flashy, he just needs to come in and get the job done, get us in good positions and get the ball out to the backs. I wouldn't be too nervous seeing Banks come...

Do Wobs fans think it would be better to have the Bledisloe games later in the RC.
