This World Cup I think is going to be one of the best, and it is good to know world rugby has already started removing the stupid ones, how thick must Rob Howley be?

 

Go Boks, smash the All Blacks.

Tom Brady is a big one. Arguably the best quarterback ever. Some disagree but most apparently agree. 😀

Watched the NE/Dolphins game the other night. The Dolphins were demolished 43-0. Brady scored a TD which is a bit unusual for a QB. Not bad for a 42 year old youngster.

So we lost the first game....The other favourites are all looking good but besides our match and the French/Argies match, most were beaten by a dominant team...

I am seeing quite a few reports about NZ tactics. It would seem NZ were very lucky for that win. Punches, drty play, the referee.

I wonder if this will ever change? NZ seem to get away with so much, and as we all know, if this was a guy like Bakkies there would be an uproar, and quite frankly Read has become quite a dirty player.

I agree, I have been saying for years, make it a 10 year residency. And I mean RESIDENCY, not this nonsense of your mother is English so you qualify, like Brad Barritt did for England.

If it is based on a 10 year residency, you can still work in a country playing for clubs etc, but to play for the country you need to reside for 10 years, of those 10 years you need to be in the country for at least 11 months. Unless you travel for work.(Rugby), this way if you come to the country at 12 years old, you become part of the culture and you will sing an anthem with pride, not mouth it off like you see with Parkes and Anscombe (not at WC) for Wales

This seems surprising. How many Samoans are playing for other countries?

i have absolutely no idea.......a LOT methinks but they maybe don't make the national teams.

Maybe it's a financial way out of the islands..........sending money home to the family......like Malawians, Zimbos etc
