All that yadda yadda yadda won't count for much ....my boks love the chase...and come the world cup all the rankings and the bravado won't save the north.....cause we all know....on a rugby field there's no place to hide.. The south have won 8 out of 9 world cups...and not one of those three countries is going to roll over and play dead ..in fact they're going to show the world exactly why the south dominates ,despite years and years of northern poaching... Dream on Clive....oh your coffees gone coldGo to comments
