He had a blinder! Starting to look very comfortable as part of the Boks side. MVS has looked pretty good too.
I am looking forward to seeing both of them on the pitch playing for Tigers

Both their performances today suggest will will have some great ball carrying options next season. With Gengey and Montya too I am really looking forward to some good ball for the whole team to play with.

Building nicely for the 2 clashes between New Zealand and South Africa played Sept/October on consecutive weekends....
intriguing match up
Seemingly heading rapidly toward senility .....Not long or far to go now , in fact, getting worse daily.....

Now NZ has closed it's borders and cancelled their games, I wonder if the Championship will continue or if they will call a halt to it? We might get our players back a bit earlier if that happens I guess.

Agree that there is not much poing in carrying on but money and TV revenue will mean that the remaining matches will probably still go ahead regardless.

That said, part of that is me looking at the position as a Tigers fan who wants our players back. If, for example, France pulled out of the 6 Nations due to Covid, I would still want to see the rest of the tournament played out.

Not sure how they are going to work it out now, I'm guessing the RC has a pre-defined player release window and if fixtures change clubs may be able to demand their players return to them, maybe SA finish their fixtures against Argentina and then the winner of those overall plays NZ in the Autumn in a final?

But with fixtures already signed and agreed in the autumn it's not that straightforward....
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

The word here in Australia is that the competition will relocate to Europe in Sept/Oct and will be played as double-headers in various European and UK cities.

Bledisloe 3 is rumoured to be played at Wembley on 9th October if it can't be rescheduled in Australia on 4th September.

SH clubs don't have games scheduled for quite a while after the RC, or at least not games that would involve test players.

The RC can't be delayed much as it will then clash with the Autumn Internationals.
