Re: Dan Palmer

Good on him for writing this. I hope that it inspires a more inclusive environment in rugby that allows more people to feel comfortable coming out, and coming out while playing.

It also 100% vindicates the ARU for the sacking of Folau. Good riddance.

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

What game impressed you most from DHP this year? Being the form 15, I presume there were many stand-outs, but you only have to give me one. Bledisloe 3 Hope he plays a blinder. Think he’s a good egg and the right bloke for the job. But..... the form 15 in SRAU was clearly Campbell. Anyone saying ot...

Campbell is not the form fullback of super rugby

Australian wines freestyle and are therefore far superior.
