    HINT: Also went unrecognised at the airport when someone forgot to meet him off the plane a few years ago. Until Joe Public saw him and drove him into Perth.

    .... and Jonah Placid now signed by Toulon #weakerasfour

    As we expected the decent fringe players that would have been the depth for the four teams is being swallowed up overseas, and the cone of silence remiains in place, Reminds me of Nero fiddling while Rome burnt

    ARU win... Tahs are losing regardless of how rugby is fairing in any other way...(who cares about progress) Its everyone else who is to blame. Never once was a national footprint meant to include them into the NSW Walla... I mean the Australian Wallabies. If the Tahs are weaker its definitely WA/Vics fault. That only 3 NSW and 2 QLD played in our last 23 (thanks AndrewM, i think it was you who pointed this out) proves how incestuous the ARU are, considering removing the Force. (As in living in your bubble ARU means you like your cousins)

    The easiest option is that we lose the Fox Commentary team.

    Closely followed by the current administration team.

    Rumour mill:

    Are the Sharks about to leave to let us retain five teams

    NZ Herald

    e Sharks are at the core of this notion. The Durban-based side sits in 8th place on the points table and is set for a quarterfinal duel with either the Crusaders or Lions. After that who knows. They could earn another week on the tournament or kiss the competition goodbye - forever.

    While that idea seems fanciful from a foundation Super Rugby side, there are threads of logic.

    The Sharks are not sold on the idea of reverting to round-robin play because they would be forced to travel to New Zealand and play some of those teams after avoiding that schedule this year.

    They feel a change of plans to link up with rugby tournaments in Europe may be a better fit for their players, their sponsors and also an improved timeframe for their television audience. Under the South African Rugby Union rules, players involved with clubs in Europe are not banned from representing the Boks.

    If the Sharks chose to join the Cheetahs and Kings and exit Super Rugby, that would offer a reprieve for both the Force and Rebels in Australia while the Sunwolves would stay with the South African conference alongside the Jaguares, Bulls, Lions and and Stormers.

    or the Force would be moved to SA and Sunwolves dropped into the Aussie conference.

    Good move putting in the disclaimer Jo. Wouldn't like to see TIF on a another "hit list"

    You're mixing up your Springsteen's with the Zimmerman's.
