  • Wow, I haven’t seen Iain Balshaw play in ages. Thought he’d retired ages ago.

  • Is this the correct team sheet. Clinton vd berg tweeted about another V Zyl, plus Wannenburg, VD Merwe & Louw. Brits out through injury.

  • Is the drinks break at Twickenham because it is SOOOOO hot there (27 C) or because of all the elderly players in the BaaBaa’s team?
