Really? New Zealand regularly take who they want from the Polynesian Islands and, to a lesser extent, so have Australia. South African schools have been taking talented Zimbabweans and Namibians for years with the long term goal of getting them to play for the Springboks. The 'Beast' being the most famous example.
 
Yeah I thought that was a pretty bizarre comment to make alright. New Zealand have historically probably been the worst team in rugby for poaching non-domestic players.

Wales and England game should be good on Saturday. 

Italy seemed to have tightened up this year a bit. Seeing as Wales only got 2 tries over there, I wonder will Ireland struggle to get the 4 tries for a bonus point?

I wouldn't think so, Wales haven't been the best this year they only beat France because they literally handed it to them.

I'm sure Wales with the home crowd behind them will have a right go at them. They'd obviously want to start well and score the first try s early as possible. It might rattle England.
