It's a funny clip. Terms of speed it looks to be

1. Savea
2. Korobiete
3. Bender
4. Hooper
5. DHP
6. Poey (who declares early)
7. Smith and Kurley making love
8. Daylight
9. SBW quitting even earlier
10. More daylight
11. Foley

Hooper is probably as quick as most but would undoubtedly already have worked his nuts off by that stage of the game. Koroibete is slowed down by being forced to wear boots

Yeah, if he was barefoot on the beach he'd be a 9.5 100m guy.

I think Snecky runs that line to distract from the fact that Savea is clearly the fastest man on that field and Bender has him as an option for this inevitable try

In other words, it was clear obstruction.

That's clear as fůck. How did the referees miss that???

In other news, we're fůcked.

Unfortunately predictable from this gang of arse monkeys.

Apparently to "experiment" before the RWC. It's a Bledisloe decider you fůcking clowns! :x I'm actually starting to despise The World Cup.

Crikey don't panic, the Wallabies selected will probably have enough anyway, i'm starting to really worry about Namibia in the WC pool game...

They’ll change shit all, except maybe give Pocock a run.

He looks like he’s been on the horsemeat too the big juicy unit

Not even remotely. It looked bad cause Ioane was level, almost in front of Smith. But Smith reached forward to pass it one handed and Ioane catches it slightly behind him. It was actually great play from Smith to avoid passing it forward.


the ball always beats the player, ioane gathered it on his side thus it was forward..

Don't be ridiculous. New Zealanders always predict their nation being swallowed by the sea next week when The All Blacks lose. The facts are different. NZ is still the best team in the world and Australia are 6th. On the back of a red card, we had a hugely surprising upset victory at home. But everyone knows that playing a kiwi team in Eden Park who have a point to prove is a completely different thing. And it's a Bledisloe decider and the best fůcking chance we've had forever, even if it's slight.

We should be aiming all our guns at this opportunity. Obviously that would just make too much sense forb the dribbling fuckwits that run this team because "World Cup something". It's becoming a detriment to the game.

It was about a metre forwards.

I would take issue with NZ being the best team in the world, you must be reading a three year old newspaper...

My prediction is that they'll make at least a few utterly retarded and unnecessary changes. I would say they'll play Pooper again ... but I doubt they will start Pocock coming back from injury. They'll start Luke Jones or something and put Pocock on at half time. Then they'll play Nick Phipps or something instead of Nic White and Banks instead of Kurtley Beale. And they'll probably take Hodge off and put someone out of position in the back-line in a "stroke of genius". Hodge off and JOC on the wing?

Some bullshit like this anyway is what I'm expecting. And we'll get what we always got doing this shit: f-cking hammered.

What they should do is play as close to possible as the team that played last week. Sneak Pocock onto the bench and that is it. Because do you know what would be WAY MORE USEFUL than doing some shit-for-brains "experimentation" before the world cup? Team unity. And how about this? Winning the f-cking Bledisloe and riding that wave into the tournament. ffs :x

I'm triggered. :x

Poey 20
Jordy 23.

Done.

You've got to realise though, "rumours from wallaby camp" are just as likely to be bullshit to try and fox Hansen.

All last week, it was constantly whispered thay they were tossing up whether Poey would be back. Any money they knew from Monday onwards.

I’m sanguine as all fuq about this now.

A man down for 40 minutes and within 7 before the Wobs kicked away late and a few missed scoring opportunities? Put the boot on the other foot and there would have been marsupial entrails scattered across the park like so many exploded sangers at a bbq gone horribly wrong after a jug of sangria was laced with acid.

The new combination of 10 and 15 is releasing some savage attacking lines. Despite playing behind a beaten pack the backline fired and only execution let us down, the structures are there. If Goodhue is out ALB can fill the spot, he starred all year for a poor Chiefs team. Bridge for Smith is a strong possibility and I dare you to stand in front of the mirror and say firmly that there is nothing wrong with that.

The pack will have a point to prove. It’s a worry being beaten like that but complacency can set up a poor performance. They’ll be keen to set up the exploded sanger scene early on.

I reckon we’ve got half a silly chance here :thumbup:

Apparently Arnold is unlikely to play due to a hand injury...

And Pocock still isn't ready.

You’re a nasty bastard GS. The Chiefs weren’t poor (made the finals and savaged the eventual winners when they got cocky...) ... we were horribly inconsistent.

We’ve got more than half a chance - especially if Aus play the odds and change the team (knowing a win would be amazing and a net win a good outcome).

NZ need to be at their best in two games time against SA. Aus have one more game to manage workloads.

Well said. I think the All Blacks spent more time last week thinking about systems and processes and not enough time thinking about rugby... this week they'll be switched on. If they aren't... then it truly is time to panic.

I hope they persist with Mo'unga at 10. The forwards decide if matches are won and lost. The backs by how much.

NZ are odds on favourites for this game. Aus havent won at Eden Park since 1986.

1986 eh, you sure? Seems to me they last won there in 2011.

So what is the point of keeping people like Ennor and Jacobson in the squad if they never play them?

If true I predict Bridge, Reece and Jordie will take their chance and give Hansen some hard decisions to make.

There is definitely a rough diamond in Jordie Barrett that when polished will be world class.


Laumape and Ennor are hard done by. Tuipolotu is f**king blessed to get another gig.

I’m sanguine as all fuq about this now.

A man down for 40 minutes and within 7 before the Wobs kicked away late and a few missed scoring opportunities? Put the boot on the other foot and there would have been marsupial entrails scattered across the park like so many exploded sangers at a bbq gone horribly wrong after a jug of sangria was laced with acid.

The new combination of 10 and 15 is releasing some savage attacking lines. Despite playing behind a beaten pack the backline fired and only execution let us down, the structures are there. If Goodhue is out ALB can fill the spot, he starred all year for a poor Chiefs team. Bridge for Smith is a strong possibility and I dare you to stand in front of the mirror and say firmly that there is nothing wrong with that.

The pack will have a point to prove. It’s a worry being beaten like that but complacency can set up a poor performance. They’ll be keen to set up the exploded sanger scene early on.

I reckon we’ve got half a silly chance here :thumbup:


You’re a nasty bastard GS. The Chiefs weren’t poor (made the finals and savaged the eventual winners when they got cocky...) ... we were horribly inconsistent.

We’ve got more than half a chance - especially if Aus play the odds and change the team (knowing a win would be amazing and a net win a good outcome).

NZ need to be at their best in two games time against SA. Aus have one more game to manage workloads.


NZ are odds on favourites for this game. Aus havent won at Eden Park since 1986.


1986 eh, you sure? Seems to me they last won there in 2011.


Bloody pedants!
Wallabies haven't won at Eden Park since 1986.

Apparently Arnold is unlikely to play due to a hand injury...

And Pocock still isn't ready.

Coleman and Rodda to the second row? Coleman looked pretty mad when he was on last week, and was absolutely dominant in the tackle. If he can get his form from 2 years ago its not a drop in quality.
But does that mean Simmons to the bench? I hope not, I just dont think he has the physicality.
Might be better to have Pocock (if fit, if not Samu) and Jones on the bench. LSL or Jones can cover lock later in the game.

Meh looks a fairly likely team tbh. If it’s accurate, no changes there will be enough to scare the Wobs and weaker than last week for mine, but it’s all a bit moot, they’re a bit out of options at this point. Tuipulotou is a big worry based on his form last game, he looked the opposite of hungry and urgent.

Not really sure there’s much point shuffling the deck chairs in the backline to the extent they have, other than shuffling the centres around for injury it seems a bit panicked. Not that big a fan of throwing SBW in for this game tbh, Laumape is looking sharp and think he would be tighter in this game. Also think he’s ready to really make a grab for 12. Would be nice to have the top Super try-scorers on the field at the same time. Regardless, that won’t be the winning or losing of the game.

What is the point of Jordie 'Journeyman' Barret on the bench?
