    14 starting Right Wings around the Super 14 competition just did a little wee in their pants picturing a massive handprint embedded on their chest next season!!!
    I think I have a new favourite Force Back, all hail the Emperor!

    What could the backline for 2012 look like ?
    Interesting. He definitely has safe hands to deal with the aerial bombs. He would enjoy the space to counter attack from deep in a Latham way. Never seen him kick though.
    Backline could be a lotttery atm. A few options and combinations to work with.

    Anyone else notice the Flyhalf setting him up for most of those tries in the video clips?
    Come "home" Brocky!

    The hardest part of watching Clermont is watching Brocky. How did we let him slip?

    I know to make way for a wonder kid with a bad hair cut. That went well.

    There are some pretty decent hits in the footage, better than a few of our current Wallaby "stars" are capable of anyway!

    He was unfortunate enough to be with us at a time we were still developing our pack. Henjack and who ever was sitting at first receiver were more often then not under huge amounts of pressure and as a result sat deeper and deeper and having no influence on the game. Once the pack became more competitive things improved but was too late by then. When I was across the ditch years ago the inlaws were amazed how Brocky wasnt even on the radar with the ARU such was the respect he held in NZ while playing for Taranaki.

    his a good signing, however i wouldnt get ahead of ourselves..
    Often wings and outside backs have been made to look better in the T14 then they actually are..

    With this bloke on board I am bloody excited for S15 season.... Pace to burn, Strong as an ox, now just got to get the ball to him and quick!!!

    Lets just hope he hasn't lost any of his form in his time away from French Rugby and the big one stays injury free unlike every one of our other 'marquees'.... World Cup will show us a lot...

    Chance to see him play..

    Fiji make nine changes for Namibia clash
    AAP
    September 8, 2011, 11:24 am

    Midfielder Seremaia Bai and winger Naipolioni Nalaga have been recalled by Fiji and are among nine changes to the starting line-up to meet Namibia in their World Cup opener on Saturday.

    France-based Bai will play in the centers outside flyhalf Waisea Luveniyali, while Nalaga, who switched from Clermont to the Western Force this week, will appear for the first time since the loss to New Zealand in July in Dunedin.

    Bai and Nalaga missed the most recent Test, a 32-20 loss to Tonga in Lautoka two weeks ago.

    Only five players kept their places from the All Blacks game, which ended 60-14.

    Fiji beat Namibia 67-18 in their only previous head-to-head match, at the 1999 World Cup.

    Fiji team (15-1): Kini Murimurivalu, Vereniki Goneva, Gaby Lovobalavu, Seremaia Bai, Naipolioni Nalaga, Waisea Sedre Luveniyali, Nemia Kenatale, Netani Edward Talei, Mala Ravulo, Dominiko Maiwiriwiri Waqaniburotu, Wame Lewaravu, Leone Nakarawa, Deacon Manu (capt), Viliame Veikoso, Campese Ma'afu. Res: Sunia Koto, Waisea Nailago, Seko Kalou, Akapusi Qera, Vitori Tomu Buatava, Albert James Vulivuli, Iliesa Lomani Rakuka Keresoni

    He looks very sharp. Hopefully we can bring the best out of him.

    Playing outside Rougerie would have been a blessing - Can we get the ball to him to let him run riot - do you play him at 13?
