RWC: Tonga squad, Hart with hope and here's to 2027

The Tongan squad was announced yesterday.

The wee widget-y thing to the top right of the blog (pop over and see it if you're reading this in RSS) is coming along nicely and I'm now starting to hunt for good RWC/rugby blogs to link to - if you know of any others don't hesitate to drop a comment.
