    Ironic considering you're back on your islander poaching game again

    We offered the last one to Connacht but they rejected him, tore up his contract so we made him an All Black instead :D...can't say the NH did'nt have the first digs on that one..

    Six Nations might be more competitive but I don't see much quality from France & Italy
    Scotland are brittle and can't win outside of Scotland minus Rome

    I believe you're mistaking competitiveness with quality

    ARG has been a mess for years for many reasons
    But that ends with Ledesma and Quesada running things
    2 serious head coaches with clout

    Fast Eddie will be very concerned watching the Jaguares and the talent available for Los Pumas

    Meh, Argentina get built up because they lose to Tri nations sides every year so everyone writes off their losses as "oh look how good they almost did vs New Zealand". Then the NH teams tour down there and beat them anyway.

    Like I said, you've gotta go back a whole world cup cycle before they beat a B&I side.
    Teams take them seriously, no doubt, but they aren't a big player anymore and sides expect to beat them home and away.

    You're looking at a RWC cycle in which for 2.5 years they were led by
    a dysfunctional and eventual lame duck HC in Hourcade

    You're placing too much too much stock on results with players
    being flogged continuously and not being rested

    Only in last 12 months has there been a semblance of competent coaching with
    Ledesma bearing in mind he went straight from coaching Jaguares to In'l rugby

    ARG are a team that have delivered spectacular results at RWC recently
    and with a less diabolical travelling schedule will be a formidable side
    I believe they're the 1st side to arrive in Japan as well

    Everything I've read (thank you social media) says it was on a social, not the training ground. A bit more excusable on the training ground than at something designed to built team spirit.

    Me too, and agreed.
    Doesn't Te'o have a past with overdoing socials as well? So might count as a second strike.

    He has previous for overdoing social media, someone on one of the many Facebook rugby pages posted a screen capture of him having a pop at Mike Brown on Instagram (and predictably enough, Brown biting back).

    Looks like we're switching to Umbro kits after the next 6N.

    Bit left field - will be interesting to see what they come up with.
    I instantly associate their logo with chavs/90s football kits (Man Utd)/cheap football boots.

    Apparently paid big bucks though, outbid everyone else - £5m a year.

    Have they ever done rugby shirts? Would be fun if we finally discovered that all the bullshit technology in shirts is actually useful and not having it is a downside.
