Well, I'm just glad that PSDT has made the return to rugby after his long lay-off. It looked like he wasn't away from the game for 15 months during this past weekend's match against the Bulls, and he was smashing players the whole time.

Welcome back PSDT!!

I think it's the Gregor Townsend theory, he said something along the lines of 'we have left some really good players at home which shows how strong our squad is'. Pictures of Duhan Van Der Merve and Binder Aki then reportedly fell out of his wallet.

Rugby onslaught is a click bait troll website.

Its just funny how the author came up to that conclusion in a short header. Their clickbait attempts are reaching such levels that the absurdity of the articles might eventually become quality entertainment.

Honestly makes sense
Genge who didn't make the lions bumps of Lang who was in a International team that has a few lions in it.

Isn't he that guy that was a failed MMA fighter and then tried rugby instead?

Today's the day

Got my Biltong ready.
Lekker bru,

Any idea what time the announcement is?

Hoping to see (minimum) Faf, Jean-Luc and Lood in there
Dan and Cobus less likely but still possible
Rohan and Akker have outside chances but unlikely

Interesting.... wonder if this means Coetzee will be the starter at 8 now. They won't be losing much, if any

Van Staden feels left field.
Been watching him and he's been great at openside but everything was suggesting he wasn't getting the call up.


Happy for Jasper Wiese

Also Oosthuizen? WTF
