    I mean Aaron Smith is probably a bit of a dick and his cackling is hilarious but I don't think he's done anything particularly worthy. The toilet incident - honestly that's just a private mess up in a relationship, I don't think it necessarily carries over.

    Perenara just scored his 51st super rugby try.

    I would be surprised if he doesn't have 70-75 by the time he retires/heads off shore.

    Added.

    Would like thoughts on following:
    Aaron Smith at #9 - the toilet incident enough along with his constant reffing? Surely other 9s escaping my memory are more worthy.

    Mike Tindall - The Zara thing at 2011, probably not enough to oust Barnes from #12 in the **** stakes for mine.

    Jamie Cudmore. **** of highest order by most accounts, at least for on the field ****ery - putting him in to Partner Backies.

    Please carry on, would look to follow up with a "good egg XV" but way too many candidates to make that feasible.

    Anyway, hit us with your worst of the worst ****s to have worn a national jersey
    I know aussies hate Fitzzy, but I'd go with his opposite from the 1994 SA tour of NZ, Henry Tromp. He lost the plot with Fitzy and bit him on the ear. And, a fun fact? A year earlier, he was convicted of manslaughter in 1993 after a farm labourer died from injuries sustained during a beating for "disciplinary reasons". So that's not great.

    It was actually prop Johan le Roux who was the one who bit Fitzpatrick's ear - https://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-pos.../69240209/null. Tromp's manslaughter proves that he wasn't the nicest person, but I don't know if he had a particularly bad on-field disciplinary record.

    Good point - not sure how I got that wrong. I remember watching it at the time! Let's just plonk them at hooker and prop anyway.

    Sam Tuitupou for centre? Convicted for assaulting his missus, which I think is still subject to a reporting restriction in New Zealand.

    But not in the UK, where a couple of clicks identifies him.

    Trump and Le Roux slot straight in.

    Tui added as a 2nd 12, though probably takes over as preferred starter with **** like that.

    Can anyone explain why the Folau thing is taking so long? Are they worried about the legality of punting him or just really desperate to have him available for the WC?

    He's been punted, and good riddance. Let the lawyers fight over the scraps.

    Saint Izzy's now decided to sue Rugby Australia for up to $10 million, which would likely bankrupt them if he wins. So much for "never doing anything to harm the sport".

    This Crusaders-Hurricanes semi-final has been a great contest.

    Man I`m a terrible rugby supporter at the moment... forgot this was even on. I am sure it has nothing to do with the terrible state of SA rugby.

    Man, referee calls don't usually decide a game but that has got to be one of the most highly controversial. Definitely not a knock on, definitely should've been a penalty to the hurricanes, who had all the momentum and you'd give them a good shot at scoring from there...
