    they've had 81% of possession but can't do anything with it - turnovers, forward passes, intercepts, etc. If they settle themselves down they're a real chance
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I agree. Dropping them is dropping a potential market of 127 million; having them in almost doubles the current potential market in SANZAAR (131 million). It's sheer stupidity.

    Also, we need to get Japan into the Rugby Championship, and quickly this time, not wait around 10 years until it was almost too late, like we did with Argentina, and the Six Nations did with Italy.
