Kok isn't much taller than Kolbe

Well we would probably need to beat Namibia and Canada with bonus points to be the pool runner up to Italy

Werner Kok playing for Stade Toulousain coped a Red for elbowing opposition wing in the neck
Something Colbe couldn't do due to his shortish stature,,,,
There are 9 saffas in among a match day total of 46 players

If SBW is unfit I would 100% start Crotty at 12 and take your pick of ALB or Goodhue
I would actually have ALB as his form is fantastic and his skills seem to suit the short passing game at speed we just witnessed last week
I would have Laumape on the bench for that real grunt

In all seriousness I’m really divided
A fit SBW provides aspects the others can’t but if not fully fit he’s a waste of time (I mean a number of matches and improving)
Laumape is playing well in NZ
Time will tell

Can't see it happening mate.....the Fame Whore is too slow and cumbersome nowadays. Got made to look like a ping pong ball in a hurricane against us......got smashed left right and centre with the ball while making zero impact on defence.

However....I'd far rather this over the hill stumblebum play against us than Laumape who present a REAL threat!!

A good mate of mine once said that when you can tell your buddy to "f-off" and he takes no offence whatsoever that's a REALLY good friend!! LOL

Phillip if you're reading this.,....that's you!!! haha

That's not their first choice 10/12 axis. They went away from that to Slade at 13 with Manu at 12. Slade was just nursing an injury with the warmups
