I have taken up Shasta's suggestion and started a new thread exclusively for people who actually understand the game and what's really happening in the local rugby scene as the other threads get hijacked by plonkers.
In addition to myself, the following people are deemed to pass the rugby knowledge test and are hereby authorised to post on this thread:
Broken down gunfighter
G Beard (just scraped in) and last but not least
Sorry Shasta, great idea but you didn't make the cut and neither did you Kalaman since you've turned soft.
Anyone else who possesses at least the high twf rank of Internet Troll can apply to be vetted as a poster but the bar is fairly high. Plonkers need not apply and are encouraged to keep to themselves on the Force side of twf where they can waffle on about Force players, grammar and other trivialities to their hearts content.
Now, our first subject matter, what happened to Gus Martyn? Did he return to NZ with his lovely wife or is he still in Oz? Involved in rugby?
Also anyone know what Mr Carlisle is up to? Did someone say he has converted to League?
