Re: League World Cup Gone*

Whilst I don't think international sport of any description is a fantastic idea at the moment this comes across in that article as this is driven less by any health issues but by the NRL not wanting any disruption.

Re: The official Lions 2021 thread

What makes george a better scrummager than lcd? Boks with mega beef on the bench. I think he's just a load bigger than LCD (may be wrong but thats my perception) and used to scrummaging with Mako.

Yet you want to start Vunipola :roll: I think what people forget about that final, is that Lawes/Itoje both s...
