Pollard played his first senior CC game at 19 and had his first Bok cap at 20 after one Super Rugby season. I'm with you on this one oom. The kid's ready for this level, if he's not he'll never be.

Thanks for that. First time I'm following a US election, no skin in the game and don't give a fok who wins, was just wondering. Wisconsin is still close but I recon it will go to Biden. Nevada is still a toss up. I don't see how Bidden takes Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina or Georgia.
