  • @wpw (Comment 4) : I don’t, but I do live here and I will support them against anyone other than SA (or the Sharks)

    And I’ll support any team Brad plays for by default.

  • Luke is sitting in “LAST CHANCE SALOON” and Brad is in “1ST CHANCE SALOON”. Mite just be an epic battle. But, with 14 changes in the Eng team and the AB’s sort of settled, his performance will depend on how Eng control the game. It would be unfair towards Brad to rate him just yet.

  • @wpw (Comment 10) :

    The very same one… our big decision is :

    Nonu and Smith

    or

    McAlister and Williams

    or should Toeva, Stanley, Ranger or Muiliana be in the mix.

    An important decision to get right going into next year.

    I just hope the Boks pick those WP boys ! :cool:

  • That move to Saracens paid off – I just hope his centre partner at the Sharks ( Waylon Murray ) finds greener pastures at the Lions !!
