Re: Israel Folau and Clive Palmer... together at last!

This was always the aim. He doesn't even want to play footy.

He's a puppet of the Australian Christian Lobby and Clive Palmer (who is pretending to be religious because he likes people talking about him).

That's a good question.

He's one of Thorn's project players.

22 years old. Plays inside centre. Um. That's about all I know.

I hope the French are typically French and go and tell Folau and Palmer to "va coucher avec ta mère"

Clive likes to tell people he's going to sue them but the reality is he doesn't do it that often because he doesn't win. He just likes the power.

Yep. Only player missing was Petaia. I reckon the Crusaders would have put 50 on any other team in the world. Richie said after the match that it was the best game they'd played all season.

Re: Chiefs v Brumbies.

Head high tackle. .. Bullshit. Off the shoulder. Piss poor decision. Penalty granted. You can't grant it was a penalty while denying it was a head high. FWIW I would have been happy with just the penalty. Wright was tackled my Messam earlier in almost the exact same fashion. Was a penalty only.

Re: Best fruit

I clicked this link thinking "I hope this plum is talking about mandarins" and was pleasantly surprised.

The only thing better than peeling a nice large mandy is eating the juicy flesh inside.

A mango (R2E2 preferred) is an honourable second.
