Re: All Blacks vs Wallabies Tokyo 27 October

Crappish maul. But we’ll take it.

ABs sliding OK in D. Stronger start by Squire than in recent tests which is pleasing. Also BB taking the ball into contact more than he has recently.

10-3 ABs.

Re: NZ Politics Thread

If we did away with the 5% threshold, or dropped it significantly, do you think we would see an increase in support for the minor parties as more voters might give them more of a look if they felt their vote was more likely to be counted? I’m open to this. However, I’d like to see more critical ana...

Taylor’s lineout throwing a real issue now. As in more so than before. All four hookers struggled to find their targets tonight. Not sure why. Taylor's throwing has generally been pretty good throughout his career, I think the issue tonight was about the lineout unit as a whole. In the first two li...

Re: RC: Pumas vs All Blacks: MATCH THREAD: Sept 29 (22:40 UT

Not the most bizarre ending to a test...but that spectator getting on looking for a piece of the action almost made it right up there. Good on both sides not letting the officiating get to them. I think both sides got stung a few times by some simply incompetent reffing. Too messy, too many mistakes...

At least that chewed a couple of minutes off SBW’s 10 minutes.

ABs to run away with it in the 2nd half with the bench at about the 60m mark.

Mind you, looking at that stat (3 minutes defending in their red zone to 20 seconds attacking), they need to retain possession and stop putting themselves under that YC pressure.
