    Yeah. I call bullshit. You claim you were offered rhe Canadian RU captaincy after 6 months in the country when Reg.8 of the World Rugby laws introduced on 2000 mandated that a player has to have lived in the country in question for no less than 3 consecutive years. Which means you would have had to have played in Canada for at least 2-3 full seasons.

    You claim the offer was made 15 years ago. So 2004. There are significant penalties for such a breach. Just ask Spain who through not being thorough enough with their compliance missed out on likely qualifying for Japan later this year.

    I’m worried about how competitive South Africa will be this weekend. I just found out a guy I know is playing for them and he hasn’t played a game in years.

    Think the US will have an uphill battle. Shame I'd rather the US.
