    Re: RWC Japan 2019 - Predictions

    So much for momentum going into the World Cup. We lost 38-35. We will beat the British Columbia All-Stars, then get thrashed by the US in the last warm-up game.

    Poll: [Ruck] Re: Is the ball out?

    In the YouTube clip, you can hear Jaco tell BV that the ball was "still covered". Does that mean he thought there was a ruck? It can't have anything to do with a TWOL, can it?
