forwards in particular- where are the les boyds, kevin wards, kurt sorensens Harvey howards and barrie macs, ??????? there seems to be a lot of players who seem to take time getting their hair right instead of getting their game right these days- too many tattooed, pump wearing , elasticated bottom trouser wearing lightweights who are image conscious.


the inside of a 3star halex table tennis ball smells much like you'd expect it to.

So what? As long as it doesn't impede their game (if anything Brett Delaney's tatts have made him better ;) ) then no problem.

The way sl clubs want forwards to play now is different to the rough tough props from back in the day. Thry seem to want everyone in the pack to b 6ft odd and 17 stone. More frame then the old style props of pure power and strength. I like blockbusting props but not many about now unfortunately.

Mitchell Stringer at Sheffield and George Rose at Manly are the only two I can think of right now...

I bet you've just seen a clip of the women's World Cup and you've got your wrong specs on and it's all a bit confusing..??

I will get in trouble for that one.......
