"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

And boosted by the return of BOD as well. Should be a good game.
Looking forward to see how the Welsh and English go against the running styles of the Wobblies and AB's.
Wondering if the tactics from England will be to knock on at every opportunity to force a scrum.
Avatar not by choice.
I just noticed Dagg has signed with the Crusaders for next year and beyond (yes I'm a couple months late i know)...**** me the All Bla...sorry crusaders will be a massive force next year.
Yeah, can't see SA winning in Dublin. Empty seats may help them though.
That said, Brussow out means a lot more than Schalk 'see-how-quickly-I-can-get-sent-off' Burger.

And the Bok's got no fit centres left in the Republic (Fourie, Wynard and JdJ all out), so fullback Zane Kirchner will play 13 and Pat Lambie will play 12 if JdV is ruled out. Adi Jacobs is on the bench for the Boks that despite playing about 20 minutes in all of the Sharks Currie Cup campaign. Frans Steyn could easily fit in at centre but he can't join up with the squad until after the Irish game.
If it wasn't for the Boks back row, I would seriously lump on the Micks.
Ahh...jokes on me for not looking at the squad...What bout Aplon, Van de heever?
Forwards: Willem Alberts, Bakkies Botha, Keegan Daniel, Bismarck du Plessis, Jannie du Plessis, Alistair Hargreaves, Ryan Kankowski, Victor Matfield, Tendai Mtawarira, Coenie Oosthuizen, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Juan Smith, Pierre Spies, Deon Stegmann, Adriaan Strauss, CJ van der Linde, Flip van der Merwe.
Backs: Gio Aplon, Bjorn Basson, Jean de Villiers, Francois Hougaard, Bryan Habana, Adrian Jacobs, Elton Jantjies, Zane Kirchner, Patrick Lambie, Lwazi Mvovo, Ruan Pienaar, Frans Steyn, Morne Steyn.
Nearly regretting my decision to back the Boks looking at that squad.
On the Crusaders...surely there is some sort of rule about stacking one team full of AB's in a world cup year...they are effectively goin gto have about 24 games together to get it right for the cup...Then again, the Reds have all the wallabies that will be playing at the WC anyway so it's all swings and roundabouts
Would love to see how much money is behind that Crusaders team, must have some seriously deep pockets/friends in high places to bring that bunch together.
Crusaders/Reds Final IMO
Yeah there is no doubt the saders are the NZ 'flagship' i suppose, was more just shocked that Dagg had signed for them, makes an already incredible team that much better. Especially given Dagg was a player the Highlanders could have built a team around (as well as Cowan and now Slade)
