    Where is Juan de Jongh? I was under the impression he had recovered from the injury?

    When is Eben expected back?

    Thanks, Stormers are really missing Eben.

    I am starting to think the same thing about Schalk, a year to recover from a knee injury and then once you start practising you get crocked again? Not good.

    Also worried about Bismarck, hopefully he will make a full recovery.

    Copying someone…

    It was intended for him….

    My style is to find a Nazi war comparison and use that parallel to make a point nobody can argue with…
