Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

Beale certainly won't be back... he took the early release because Rennie wasn't interested.

It'll likely be Arnold and Latu or Skelton.

Unless Kerevi has learnt how to pass I wouldn't be interested...

Re: Underrated rock and metal bands

Simply because they were one of the best live acts going around, put out two perfect back to back albums in the 90's and should be more generally regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time... THE JESUS LIZARD. Also, because they are the greatest band of all time... SUN CITY GIRLS.
