Re: Fozzie Out

I haven't seen any evidence that AB fans want the team to fail so that it reflects badly on Foster. That's just a dishonest post. I am one of the most anti-Foster posters on this forum and I've said repeatedly that I'd love to be proven wrong, and for him to lead the AB's to great success. I've see...

Re: Wallabies v All-Blacks - Bledisloe II - Official Match Thread

Game day, cant wait. Something that someone raised earlier was the amount of tackles the AB's had compared to the Wallabies. This was due to too much ball being kicked away by the AB's when they needed to hold on to it. I hope the coaches have addressed this as I am sure Rennie will also have spoke...

Re: ABs for the next Bled

I'm fine with Mo'unga retaining the 10 jersey but he needs to let someone else kick sideline penalty touch finders. The amount of times he over cooks it is bordering on the ridiculous now.

Re: Bled I - All Blacks v. Wallabies OFFICIAL match thread

Anyone talking about Mo'ungas shambolic penalty touch finder misses, this has been a huge issue for him and hasn't improved. Time to let Beauden or Jordie kick for touch.

Re: Should Read be dumped as captain?

Kieran Read lead by his performances, he didnt come across as a great motivator or strong leading man. Unfortunately when his form dipped there wasnt much else.

I dont blame him or Hansen for the Lions series draw though, that squarely sits with Sonny Bill Williams and his fans.
