A decent performance. I liked the patience which was a big improvement from last year. On that, I much prefer Jordie’s style at the back to the helter skelter we have seen from DMac earlier in the year.

If Sam Cane wasn’t AB captain, would he walk back into the team on the back of no rugby? We are talking about a lengthy lay off. I would prefer he earns his spot on the back of super rugby next rather than jumping straight back in.

I'm sorry, judiciary. A bunch of Aussie and Pom couch potatoes with massive chips on their shoulders have determined that the card was fair.

He’d have been judged fairly if a Cantabrian. We never held any shots with Brett Cameron or Tyler Blyendaal so would have no reason to do so for Beauden Barrett.

Are the Stuff ratings correct in noting that Beauden Barrett had zero running metres? That is astonishing if accurate. I said during the game that he was understated and not taking on the line but still, zero???
