    Fucking Wynne Barnes you useless waste of skin paramedical twat! This was a robbery…

    PS> Los Pumas today played the Boks gameplan and came to within a whisker of doing it right…

    Aussies honestly had no answer except surreptitious nods to Wynne Barnes to increase the twat’s bribe…

    I saw so many innovations from Los Pumas
    and was hoping HM would view the tape.
    Best thing that could happen to the competition.
