If Gillou can stomp the Beast, I would highly favor Jo over Berdman in a deciding rubber.
Moi aussi. I have confidence that Jo would beat most in a DC tie, anf if it werre in France , no question, Jo feeds off the crowd.
I'm a bit worried about Simon/Steps but I think simon can do it if he doesn't let Steps get under his skin.
Please explain the DC rules. Do they have to go by ranking? which means Richie would NOT be able to replace Simon cuz Richie is ranked below Simon and the #1 French of the line up for that day has to play Steps and Richie is #2 to simon (and well everyone esl on the team but llodra)?
