    At least 5 from 6 and churchill cup finalists.

    That's what i'm looking for this year from us.

    Doubt it'll happen, and i should just be looking for us to have a coach, but we have to aim high.

    When do the end of year Wallabies tickets usually go on sale, and do they sell them in the SH or is it too difficult?

    That's strange France is supposed to play on the 8th and 22nd of November but not on the 15th. I think you must have missed one test. I presume this is versus the PI.

    Lets not get ahead of ourselves here RC, the Bloemfontein and Pretoria games are 1st, and you don't even wanna what's been bellowing there. You should hear what Gatland means in Afrikaans.
    Put it this way, it's part of something that's gonna get kicked :p.

    BTW "scalp" sounds an awful like "help", wouldn't you say?
    :D
