Re: Lambie gggooonnneee?

One of my favorite players, but it's true that he didn't realise his full potential. The Sharks did not do him any favours by moving him between flyhalf and fullback all the time. Another player they've fcuked over. Same with Frans Steyn IMO Shame about Pat :thumbdown: great player, great career.

Well that sucked, but congrats ABs. That last penalty on PsDT's tackle was crap.

Otherwise, I could be wrong and the two SA teams end up being Boland and the Pumas, which would be great for them anyway.

This is the end of s super rugby. It's probably a good thing for SA, overnight flights to games instead of insanely long flights and jetlag. It should strengthen the CD and Supersport challenge, both great comps that just need better players, and long term open the pro 14 could develop into somethin...
