Re: Fozzie Out

Ffs just put smith at 9 and mounga at 10 If we are going to persist with this outdated gameplan at least put the best players in the most pivotal positions Tjp and Barrett as a combination are far too slow and Havilli hasn't kicked on at all Everyone it seems except foster knew this before the game ...

Re: Rugby Championship: All Blacks vs Springboks: MATCH THREAD: Sat 25th Sept

To quote Shag..."flush the dunny and move on". Got the trophy, need to give some of the other guys a run next week. Reece, maybe Weber starts, RMo, ALB. Start Samson, and Karl. Slacky at 6, Ardie at 7, Give Akira a run at 8. Reiko on the wing. Don't think it was a flush the dunny performance at all...

Re: Rugby Championship: All Blacks vs Springboks: MATCH THREAD: Sat 25th Sept

The ABs get penalties inside the 22. Boks are a man short in the backs. ABs don't take the 3. Go for the worst option, a lineout...playing to the Boks strength, and screw up the lineout. Why not a scrum? Twice they did that while the Boks had a man in the bin. Braindead option taking. Impressed wit...

Re: Rugby Championship: Wallabies vs Springbokke: MATCH THREAD: Sat 18th Sept

Next week is going to be a cricket score. The Boks are going to get pumped. I am not so sure. Boks seem to step up when they play All Blacks. Yeah, I think the Boks played the Wallabies but are focused on the All Blacks. One thing I do notice is that the Boks have a habit of slumping between World ...

Re: All Black squad selection thread

Whitelock, Smith, Mo'unga and Coles are four of our very best players. Taking them out of the match day 23 is going to leave huge holes in the team. If Beauden Barrett can steer this team to wins over the Springboks then he will go up in my estimation. Our first game vs the boks isn’t until the 25t...
