Force might play Donaldson at 15 - they have Burey and the returning Pasitoa at 10.
Burey is doing well for a guy coming out of club rugby.
Too many of these club guys with potential never wore the right school tie, or don't have the political backing of the right people. Then they go overseas and make quite a handy living. Meanwhile wunderkinds like Mark N are allowed to run hot and cold because they've come through a pathway.
The systems are fucked. They won't get better while enough fucked people remain in charge of the fucked structure.
@Darren agree Darren, as a Canes man from day 1 in 96, this is best I feel about our prospects for quite a few years. I think all we need to round of team is a couple of big locks! And sign up Roigard for a few years so we don't lose him!
Wallabies prop Angus Bell is facing a second consecutive season on the sidelines and a race against time to make his first World Cup squad after re-injuring his foot in the opening round of Super Rugby.
Bell ruptured the ligament in the big toe on his right foot in the first half of the Waratahs’ opening-round loss to the Brumbies in Sydney on Friday night
Scans over the weekend revealed it was the same injury that ended his Test season last year. He faces four to six months on the sidelines and was considering further surgery on the foot, the Waratahs said.
There was a bit of talk about him coming in without any warm up games beforehand. Not a great look for the back office if he's returned with...
@cgrant I be pleased if Lomax does, I really got on his wagon we first arrived at Ta$man, just loved how he scrummed, had a back so straight you coauld put a cuppa on it, but took a while to really come through. I from old school that reckom a real straight back allows the power coming through from behind to go where it sholud.
