Hard to argue with that. Sanzaar would possibly push Argentina into that new American League system too. There is a feeling they’ve done enough for Argentina and now time for Argentina to return the favour. American League is private ownership I think though which may pose a problem.

I'm watching the Crusaders game and their basic passing skills are just perfect and it makes such a difference. The Sunwolves didn't defend particularly badly but when you catch and give so quickly there's just no chance to get near anyone on the ball. Support play and communication obviously play a part too but on a technical level they're incredibly quick at moving the ball. Whatever way they've managed it, Ireland could do with copying them.

We're not short of young outhalves but Fergus Burke must have some Irish blood in there somewhere.

Good interview with Michael McDonald here: https://www.rte.ie/sport/rugby/2020/042 ... ood-stead/

wonder if he will be approached by a province before he gets capped.

You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!
