Dear Hosea,

I know how you feel mate.

It won't be the same without you there at the end of the chain.

P.S. The razor blade T-shirt look was a nice touch.

Yours, Piri

Matt Giteau

Mate! You really should be here. It's a lovely place. In fact it's a lot like home. Hang on a minute! It is home!...


David Wallace

Dear David, I know first hand how terrible it feels to be invalided out of a major series in NZ.

Brian O'Driscoll

Sebastien Chabal

Mon ami, it would be wonderful if you were with us, Sebastien. We've been in New Zealand for three days and already the team is running low on hair products.


Juan Martin Hernandez

Juan, that creaking sound you can hear is the improbably massive weight of expectations hanging over us. In your absence, please send us a memo on how to run a game.

Regards and get well soon, Los Pumas
