Nick Easter on the Run

Everybody who was at Rondebosch in 2000 will remember the stooge of the boarding house at the time. He was a largish lad who claimed to be troy flavell's cousin (he would always say this while prancing around in his Blues jersey) and who could be heard to say "ruik jou ma" and "Florence, around the poles and back or ill beat you!" in a thick brittish accent. He was also not scared to get into a fight on his numerous trawls of the claremont drinking establishments and often sported grated knuckles, but never a black eye. I am of course talking about none other than Nick Easter, or Mr Easter as he was know to us.

Mr Easter was named in the England world cup squad by coach Brian Ashton yesterday. Many rugby experts say that he may well even be the first choice No8, squeaking out Lawrence Dallaglio. Easter also broke the record the other day for tries in a game by an England No8. He scored 4 against Wales in England's crushing 62 - 5 win at Twickenham a few weeks ago.

We wish the Troy the Boy all the best of luck and we all hope he gets cleaned by Bob Skinstad (provided they both start) in Paris when they meet! What a sick game!!

Nice one lads.

Remember you need 100 votes or more (or 98 more at time of writing) to stand in line to win the jersey!
