Re: Was the 2019 loss to ENG actually the worst AB RWC choke

No. They were not a great side (Hansens selection showed that). And too inconsistent to win 3 big games in a row.

Re: Will there be any SH test rugby in 2020?

I think it would be better to can the RC. Invite the Saffers out for a 3 test series tour. This would be the best option. Invite the world champs over. They could self isolate on a farm/country hotel for a fortnight. Then full on 3 test tour. With mid weekers. Could be a great option. Bring a large...

Re: Billy Bragg, anyone?

Billy is brilliant. Wrote some classic songs and had some classic albums like the ones mentioned.

Some of the songs on workers playtime are gut wrenching. He clearly had his heart ripped out when writing the album.
