  1. Argentina superrugby experiment known as the Jaguars took their sweet time but are now FINALLY gelling when it counts, just before the WC. Very cool to see how this will manifest at WC time. They could still show up there and fall apart but cool to see what happens.
    Also, don’t take Phil Kearns seriously in his comments about them needing to be banned due to unfairness etc. Why should’nt you? Because he certainly doesn’t. Kearns is an ENTERTAINER . He threw that bone out there to get there to get some howls from the crowd.
    Who knows maybe ARU asked him to? Lord knows people aren’t talking about Aus rugby prospects. When it comes to Rugby Union in Aus the topic is either the Izzy Folau drama or…….
    You get the picture.
    Now its should the Jags be banned from superrugby or not lollol.
