Great game Highlanders, so much desperation. Really gutsy win, Blues threw so much at them.

Complete bullshit call, no way he could see anything. You disagree that he intentionally lifted his foot.. then brought it down in a hooking movement? I think the fact that his toes are pointed down after knocking the ball loose indicate he was trying for the ball as opposed to if he accidentally c...

Re: Super Lazy Blooze v Horricanes Fred

Pretty shit game. Bench halfback superior again, Nock is clear third now, appalling kicking game from him. Ruru with a bit more distance on the kicks and some snipes in close made a big difference. Ruru kicks too much and is part of why the Crusaders just love kicking halfbacks to enhance their att...

Re: Sam Cane out for 4-6 months

It will always be a "what if" for me, what if Cane had started in the semifinal against England. Would he have stopped that early English forward momentum in its tracks like he did against Ireland?

Re: Chiefs Vs Blues Match thread. Is this the match for 2nd place?

Issues with the Blues as I see it: Props: The squad is stacked but that shouldn't necessarily call for a huge change in game style. Make use of the depth the squad offers but the obsession with taking scrums and dodgy line out drives is costing us. Hooker: No standout in this position so the line ou...

Re: Chiefs Vs Blues Match thread. Is this the match for 2nd place?

The strategy isn't a bad one it's the execution that isn't great. Macdonald has a forward pack stacked with All Blacks so the idea must be to physically grind them into submission through constant scrum's and goal line defense and then taking the advantage when the bench rolls out. Didn't work last ...

Re: fairness of refs in rugby?

Rugby must be one of the most difficult sports to referee especially when played at pace. Not helped by the ever shifting laws, interpretations and directives from IRB.

Big game for Christie to see if he can cement a starting place.

Not sure about Goodhue, would prefer Cowley-Tuioti to start. He was really good last year. Aside from that (and maybe Ruru) a bloody strong team on paper.

Aside from the brain explosions the Blue's bench were a significant improvement over the starters. Heem had a suprisingly decent game.
