Didn't really, middle comment was for you...

I would take another 3 dead ass lasts again, followed by another 3 titles any day, again... than another 4 chokes in finals, followed by another 4 chokes, followed by....etc.. ;-)

Reading the subtitles of Pote post match interview is gold. They always make me laugh. Tube doesn't understand Afrikaans accent lekker

"Thank you for joining us butchers i think you are such an authority
What playground i was a beach at all
Its a Malaysian you were heading for us
Actually loved the bird Loftus
We have to it on the chin and come back strong and tweak
A lot of racket apply thinking leaving gangs really play off folks"

I sometimes wonder what planet these people are living on. Boudjellal complains about Savea's form as if he hadn't seen the guy play in the last three seasons. And now the national team are considering hiring Mitchell. I'd give it three weeks before someone gets a ball in the face, followed by a player strike.

Well said that man!
Ja the Frenchies are in all sorts of dwang. Looking at their RWC group, they'll be lucky to finish fourth. I don't quite know what happened to French rugby. Where the heck did it all go so wrong? I was raised on the wonderful French teams of the late-80s and early 90's. Olivier Roumat, Olivier Merle, Thierry Lacroix, Tienie Marie (him of the Shirley Temple blonde curly hair) Abdul Bennazzi... There were hundreds of them. Generation after generation of technically gifted - emotional timebombs that terrified the opposition. I remember reading Brian Moore's autobiography when during the coin toss before a 5 Nations clash in the mid 80's, former England captain Bill Beaumont asked the referee if he could hear the French lock speak. "In English?' quizzed the referee - no replied Beaumont 'I just want to hear him grunt. Based on the size of the chap I don't believe he's evolved far enough to speak any language just yet'.

I would love to see how the French players react to Mitch as coach.

Not sure if a croissant made of cement will go down well.

Some rankings to digest...

2019 has a new top team and the SA teams are all very high in the rankings too, something odd is happening here.

With last seasons data added, not much change, Crusaders taking the appropriate nosedive and the middle teams trying very hard to see who can best be mediocre.
