Re: New Zealand...fvcked

I can't say I fully understand the MIQ lottery system, but surely a priority system is required. I work with somebody from Italy, who's father passed away from COVID in Italy 18 months ago. She gave birth to her first child 16 months ago. She's been unable to see her father's resting place and prop...

Re: Melbourne. Fvcked again. And again. And again.

Good to see the commentary getting up the muppets. Yarra councillor Stephen Jolly said low vaccination rates in his municipality could not be blamed on poor people and migrants as it was overwhelmingly wealthy and educated compared to outer regions. “City of Melbourne is last, Yarra is second last ...

I think Queensland has done a most remarkable job of managing this and would swap places in a heart beat if I could. By comparison Dan has been a major let down.

Re: Fozzie Out

Yes I agree Pakia Pakia. Loosies were nowhere as bad as the tight-five. Correct. Lineout and cleanout cost us that game. That's the entire pack, but should be bread and butter for the tight five. Akira still had plenty of question marks though. He's shown immense promise at this level after 9 games...

Re: All Black discussion for the Northern Tour.

So it will be interesting to see how the loose forwards pan out. Kaino and Read were both strong lineout options. Funny, I don't ever remember Kaino being a strong lineout option at any level. And putting him in the same sentence as arguably our greatest ever lineout target is borderline trolling.
