Midweek Madness - Piggies vs Princesses - Stephen Hoiles vs Francis Fainifo

Midweek Madness - Piggies vs Princesses - Stephen Hoiles vs Francis Fainifo

It's time for another test to see who the better men are - forwards or backs - as we take in another instalment of the always entertaining Piggies vs Princesses feature from the Rugby Club in Australia.

This week it's the turn of the Brumbies as scrumhalf Patrick Phibbs hosts the big challenge between a speedy dancer, and a number eight that fancies himself in the kitchen.

It's Francis Fainifo up against Stephen Hoiles as they go through a bit of the routine trivia, then a unique cook-out, sideline at a Brumbies training session.

The unfortunate taste-testers are fellow players Ben Alexander, Adam Ashley-Cooper, and Drew Mitchell, the latter of which looked to be taking a bit of strain after tasting Hoiles' masterpiece.

Fainifo has a very pretty nose, shaped like a heart. One must ask though, was he not good enough to play for county tikiwiki of New Zealand? so he had to move to Australia.

Was Drew Mitchell drinking soy sauce?

Haven't been to Coogee for a while...might pop back for a swim soon.

Maybe Fainifo just came here looking for a better standard of living, you know, like the other thousands of kiwis who come over here every year.

Top 14 Highlights in France,
Guinness premiership highlights in UK,
Currie Cup highlights from South Africa,
Air NZ cup highlights from NZ,

This crap in Australia...Any wonder why our S14 teams struggle and we get wooden spoon in tri-nations?

Jaysus, so that's the world of professional rugby...the backs seem well-nigh as big as the props...they certainly don't look it down on the field, but standing side by side, it's hard to tell positions just by size.

to lalala,

They're Australian rugby players, and thats an Australian forward... so of course a back will look around the same size as him... very weak.

He's only a flanker, they often aren't that much bigger than centers.
Brussow's not much bigger than De Villiars for example.

I think Brussow is much smaller then De Villiers actually? But that's a rare case.

Brussow may be shorter in stature, but he's more solid than Jean and more than likely stronger. If you don't believe me watch how he manhandled Martin Williams. That's not to say Jean is a weak player, after all, he destroyed Isaac Ross during the trinations tour.
