Re: Waratahs vs Chiefs: MATCH THREAD: Sat 12th June

Damn. I was hoping for a match. Buy a lighter or give up smoking, FFS :lol: Because a simple through the hands play to the wing off first phase for a converted try in 90 seconds just bodes oh-so-well for a close, thrilling game. I hope they provide one regardless but let's not pretend it looks good.

Re: Waratahs vs Chiefs: MATCH THREAD: Sat 12th June

Still could be a little bit interesting watching Swinton make his final statement in a bid for a Wallaby jersey.

Pretty sure he's get one regardless although Valetini is the obvious first choice.

Not a bad 'tahs jersey, although as usual would be immensely improved with the addition of a collar to differentiate it from a cycling jersey.

Valetini is great in defence. He literally picks people up and walks backwards with them. In fact, in the past season I was critical of him for not being a presence enough with ball in hand, although undoubtedly a beast smashing rucks and in tackles. Thankfully he's addressed that in spades this yea...
