Is Porter a surprise inclusion? Is he that highly rated?

Seems like there are a few notable exclusions, which has in turn lead to a few notable inclusions.

I think a few England players peaked at the World Cup and that has left others like Porter and many of the Scottish lads as what would have been 12 months ago surprise inclusions.

That said. I know little about Andrew Porter!

Porter is v good and can play on both sides of the scrum - good over the ball also. He got a lot of game time due to Furlong’s injury early in the season. He might be a surprise and make the test side - at worst off the bench

Also find it strange that Matt Proudfoot isn't part of the technical team. No one knows forwards better than him, the South African pack particularly considering he's worked with them for a number of years. Is that another 'Scot' snubbed?

Some achievement from Sam Simmonds, breaking the Prem Try scoring record from number 8.

A hat-trick last night taking him to 19 for the season (so far)... unreal.

Dallaglio was on last night and he was 19 trys from number 8 in his club career.

I wonder will he make the Lions side over Toby or play as a 6?

I’ve not seen him play anything other than as an 8. Can he play 6??? If he has decent warm up matches I reckon he is the starting 8. He has to be.

One thing is for sure, he will be targeted by the boks. That’s some ridiculous stats. Chris Ashton (who I know love, he is such a sound bloke) is really pissed off and not without some merit. Some of Simmonds try’s are the front row pretty much throwing him across the line.

It’s still a ridiculous number for a forward. Exeter look ruthless again.

We didn’t even mention Toulouse - that was some “hit” for the red card

I missed the game as I was out.

Saw the second half of the Leicester Montpellier.

Springboks squad

Props: Thomas du Toit, Steven Kitshoff, Vincent Koch, Frans Malherbe, Ox Nché, Trevor Nyakane, Coenie Oosthuizen

Hookers: Joseph Dweba, Malcolm Marx, Bongi Mbonambi, Scarra Ntubeni

Locks: Lood de Jager, Eben Etzebeth, Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, Franco Mostert, Marvin Orie, RG Snyman

Loose forwards: Dan du Preez, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Siya Kolisi, Kwagga Smith, Marco van Staden, Duane Vermeulen, Jasper Wiese

Utility forwards: Jean-Luc du Preez, Rynhardt Elstadt

Scrum-halves: Faf de Klerk, Herschel Jantjies, Sanele Nohamba, Cobus Reinach

Fly-halves: Elton Jantjies, Handré Pollard, Morné Steyn

Midfielders: Lukhanyo Am, Damian de Allende, Jesse Kriel, Wandisile Simelane, Frans Steyn

Outside Backs: Aphelele Fassi, Cheslin Kolbe, Willie le Roux, Makazole Mapimpi, Sbu Nkosi, Yaw Penxe, Rosko Specman, Damian Willemse

----------

Would have chosen Marcel Coetzee and Cornal Hendricks. It's likely that Duane Vermeulen won't be available to play because of injury, so perhaps Coetzee will indeed get a late call up. Not sure how Simelane is better (well, he is darker...) than Hendricks, but okay.

The Pro14 becomes The United Rugby Championship.

Good news - better standard and hopefully less of a monopoly. The games vs the SA sides will also be a better prep for European games

I love how quick they are to adapt within the Pro14 (or now the URC). They accept the need to move things forwards on an almost yearly basis. Has to be good for every single aspect of the game including revenues and then quality.

The Bristol vs Quine game was mental yesterday. Quinn’s 28-0 down came back, to lead then draw in 80mins. They then won in ET. I only saw from about 50 mins.

Then Exeter reasonably comfortable against Sale. Tuilagi very lucky not to get a red.

Hard to look past Exeter in the final.

Lions team vs Japan.

Depleted squad so not much choice. But good to see early Scottish involvement. Ample opportunity for players to show what sort of form they are in.
