That’s the rumour here at Saints according to the father of England player Lewis Ludlum

Looking at Vunipola on Saturday perhaps AwGoostoos can do a Stampkar.

Nope, we have Sam Simmonds and Alex Dombrandt waiting in the wings to fill Vunipola’s shoes.

Dombrandt is a beast, Eddie is an idiot for not including him

Everyone is banging on about Simmonds but he is not physical enough for a test 8

Dombrandt at 120kg is another Vermeulen

Simmonds is an excellent player who punches above his weight. He and Dombrandt should have been playing for the past year. It’s a criminal waste of talent.

Kwagga Smith punched way above his weight at Super rugby level but was a non entity at test level

Simmonds at 102kg is too small for a test 8

He would best be suited at openside but England have Underhill and Curry as options there

I can see why Eddie has reservations about Simmonds but he certainly should not have any when it comes to Dombrandt

Likewise Jaco Kriel....but of course that was heresy.

No, I’d play him at 8 but it might be nice to have him on the flank with Dombrandt at 8.

Wrong Jaco Kriel at over 100kg was big and physical enough for test rugby openside

Kwagga was good against the RC sides, struggled against Wales. Was a significant upgrade over the non entity that was Kolisi. Should have had Kwagga starting with Louw as relief.

Shut up omelette you ignorant prick

I had such high hopes for Kwagga who was a complete flop in all his tests

Kolisi is world class

Kwagga was a disaster for the Boks. He had one average game, but all others were a non-entity. A cheerleader running around, but making minimal impact.  

Kolisi has had some good games. In 2016-2017 he played very well, and got man of the match in tests, and also in SuperRugby. 

Kwagga should have played at centre. He has the skills, but too small for a test level forward with his contribution.

But ignorant Omelette is telling us Kwagga was good in the RC

Fucking clueless prick

Kolisi is by far our best attacking forward, is great with ball in hand and defensively
