    I'm not 100% but I think its nil to a small handful.
    Some of the comments on SA's facebook page say that they tried to get locals involved but blokes weren't showing up for training or had RU commitments they preferred to keep

    CNK has been ruled out by Canberra doctors.

    Might give South Africa the edge?

    Actually hope South Africa can cause the upset of the century lol, hoping it sparks some kind of interest in the game in SA, but the cooks will put 50 on them with just state cup players

    Cooks don't have their top team but I reckon they'll be too strong for the rhinos

    Hard to see Cookies dropping this one (or vs USA if we're being honest) but hopefully the Saffas put up a good fight.
