Finally Ardie Savea will stay in NZ after the RWC !
But you told us he was definitely leaving
RE: Kiwis in Frogolia
Some random names I didn't expect to see over there Daniel Ramsay and one I had forgotten about David Smith. Also an ex Hastings boys player who I think palyed for the Naki Alex Tulou. He was in wider squad for France was a big hitter has some awesome highlight reels on youtube.
I think he missed out on France selection due to eligibility issues.
Yeah, Smith was selected for France a season or two back, but I think he had played 7s for one of the Islands or the like.
Edit: and I see that Island was NZ...
RE: Let's talk about six, baby
@snowy I was not impressed when they mad eit mandatory for everyone to have a full replacement front row on the bench a few years back, 23 players, but RWC squad sizes stayed the same WTF?
They didn’t stay the same. They were increased from 30 to 31.
RE: RWC Draw
@hooroo no idea, I had a look at that stats page but cant work it to get that info.
But I'd expect the current squad age would be younger; we had what, 6 centurions in the 2015 squad (Richie, DC, Ma'a, Conrad, Woody, Mealmau?) We will have 2 next year - Read & Whitelock? If the stars align, Ma'a could be back.
