Re: Official Rugby World CUp (and the lead up tests) Thread
I must say, I was impressed with Huxley in the Super14. But there can be quite a step up to test match level. Possibly Mark Gerard on the other wing? What's happened to Clyde Rathbone? And Chris Latham?
And I agree, Palu is quite a monster. Wouldn't want to tackle that for all the money in the world. We have our own super-athlete, Pierre Spies, who might start at 8 on Saturday. Played wing less than two years ago (yet to turn 21, I think), but gew to about 1.95m and 106kg and made the move to the back row. Destructive runner in a bit of space. But no one knows whether it will be him, Bobby Skinstad, Danie Rossouw, Joe van Niekerk or AJ Venter. And that's a pretty handy choice dilemma to be stuck with.
