    Should be a good game to watch and it should be really good preparation for the Boks for the tests that follow.

    Thoughts...?

    Hurray for old-timey tour games. Up with this sort of thing I say!


    Tis great to see really though, Leicester should be able to give them a decent run out even missing so many internationals.

    I thought the same as Feicarsinn. I'd love to see something near a return to the good old tour system.

    Looks like Leicester saw the money that Munster made last year and the South African union read about how much Munster payed the All Blacks and hey presto! It works out for everyone!
     
  5. South Africa could do the rest of England a favour if they would care to take their physically renowned brand of rugby and take Leicester down a peg or two.

    I think it'd be awesome if we got to see NH teams go against Super 14/ANZ Cup/Currie Cup teams. It give the lesser used internationals a chance of a game. I know Scotland could use a few matches to try out some new/less frequently used players and this would be an ideal place to do it.

    Great to see, but i don't think there's much gains ($$$ wise) especially from NZ compared to the NH.

    "To bring the world champions to Welford Road is a real coup"

    Which means:

    "To bring the world champions to Welford Road cost a bomb but we'll make our bit too"

    I'd say everyone makes their bit out of these arrangements.
