Freddie Burns and Ollie Lawrence join the podcast! Jantjies, 30, who made the last of his 37 Test appearances during 2019’s Webb Ellis trophy success, last week announced he will join the Top 14 outfit on a short-term deal until the end of the season. Jantjies, who played in two World Cup pool games for the Boks in Japan: the 57-3 victory over Namibia and 66-7 thrashing of Canada. Queen on tour: The Queen on a walk-about in Portsmouth during her Silver Jubilee tour of Great Britain on June 29, 1977. She marked 25 years on the throne with a busy UK tour, visiting 36 counties over 10 weeks, as well as travelling 56,000 miles around the world in celebration. The Queen usually attends each year and Prince Charles, a keen gardener, has picked up several silver medals for his own gardens at the show. Jantjies will be competing with first-choice fly-half Handre Pollard, who has been out since September with a serious knee injury, for a starting berth later this year. Jordan Larmour will start at fullback as Rob Kearney recovers from a groin strain suffered against Russia, with Keith Earls and Jacob Stockdale completing the back three that started the 27-3 win over Scotland.
Dressed for the mines: The Queen showed she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty as she dressed in a white boiler suit, scarf and safety helmet for her first ever visit to a coal mine on July 1, 1958. She spent around 30 minutes underground at Rothes Colliery in Fife, Scotland. She heads off to Scotland for the summer each year. We had a year lockdown. Hard working: The Queen in her study at Balmoral on September 1, 1972 – the year of her silver wedding anniversary. The Queen has appeared at her annual birthday parade every year of her reign, except for 1955 when a national rail strike cancelled the event. The former national team captain has confirmed his international retirement at the age of 34 following 76 caps. “He’s been one of the most influential players in the world in his 13 years at the top of the professional game, an outstanding and hugely-respected All Blacks captain. In the last World Cup there were some players that didn’t play a lot and then suddenly they were required for the quarter-final and maybe they didn’t quite have the confidence we would have liked them to have. World traveller: Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visiting the Indian President Zail Singh at his palace in New Delhi on November 17, 1983. The Queen has travelled to over 129 different countries during her reign so far, but does not have a passport as she doesn’t need one – British passports are issued in her name.
Royal baby: Queen Elizabeth holding her son Prince Andrew during an outing in the grounds at Balmoral, Scotland, on November 8, 1960. He was the first child to be born to a reigning monarch for 103 years. Dressed up: The Queen dancing with Prince Philip at a state ball during the palace in Valletta during a Commonwealth visit to Malta in November 1967. The Royal couple lived in Malta between 1949 and 1951 in the early years of their marriage. Been present at every single game for the past 5 years. Hardcore supporters who made the 6,700-mile trip to Japan descended on the southern city of Oita where the knockout game kicked off at 8.15am – 16.15pm local time. The pair could face each other for in early June during the last game of the regular French season with Pollard’s Montpellier heading to Stade du Hameau. Green fingered: The Queen on her visit to the Chelsea Flower Show in London on May 24, 1971, a regular fixture in the Royal calendar. Walkies: The Queen with some of her corgis walking the Cross Country course during the second day of the Windsor Horse Trials on May 17, 1980. The monarch is responsible for introducing a new breed of dog known as the ‘dorgi’ when her corgi Tiny was mated with a dachshund ‘sausage dog’ called Pipkin, which belonged to Princess Margaret.
At this point, she had been monarch for just one day after the death of her father King George VI when she was just 25 years old. The situation the club is in is one of the challenges I’m really looking forward to. The decision of the RA board, with former Wallabies Daniel Herbert and Phil Waugh leading the high performance review, means Rennie will only be able to pick three players from overseas for any one tournament. Here she is with one of her beloved corgis. Walking the corgis: The Queen is also known for her love of corgis – and has owned at least 30 Pembroke Welsh corgis, all of whom have descended from her dog Susan, who was given to the Queen on her 18th birthday. A meeting with the President: Queen Elizabeth II with British Prime Minister Edward Heath (second from right) and American President Richard Nixon and his wife Pat Nixon at Chequers, Buckinghamshire on October 3, 1970. Since she came to the throne, there have been 13 US presidents and Queen Elizabeth has met all but Lyndon B Johnson. There are a few adjustments. Garcia, Burns, Im and Corey Conners are the only players in the field who reached the Tour Championship last season.
