George, I agree 100%. I think the exodus of players will start picking up even more after the WC once the new quota system is official & being controlled.
Riaan, you clearly have not been to France yet...lovely summers, great beaches, good food, great wine & wonderful snowy winters. Just ask Bakkies.
You cannot compare the UK to France. France offers a great quality of life without the crime of SA or the white trash working class drunks of the UK.
I have been there on 6 month work contracts & would love to move there with my family...if only the language barrier was not so much of an issue for me.
