Re: Los Pumas vs Wales - 1st test July 10th

Just watching the replay now. F-ck me. That red card. I get it technically... but ffs. I guess they have to do it by the letter or the law. But the only reason the tip tackle a few minutes latter was not carded is the referee didn't want to come across a card nazi I reckon. By the letter or the law ...

I'm not really sure how I feel about horse racing to be honest. I'm not sure that fellow was smiling much of his life.

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

You would hope so. The problem is, he'll have a game against a tier 2 or 3 team, and perform really will, and that performance will be mistaken for having the ability to translate it to test level. Your young guys shut him down so easily is was embarrassing. The concern here is that this was close ...

If Valetini went into "hulk smash" mode when put in a gold jersey and sent out against the All Blacks, this conversation would be moot.

I am a Swinton fan but the consensus seems to be he had a very average super rugby season and Valetini was miles ahead of him. I would still like to see Swinton and Leota get chances in upcoming tests. Edit - I am not saying we drop Valetinia, not at all. He should be given more chances. But we can...

Aggression is great but not when they give away stupid penalties and get them carded. Controlled aggression is what is needed. And yes we do need more forwards with mongrel.

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

P.S. I kind of have a bad feeling about Swinton, and the opposite to what one might expect. I think for him to be good, he has to have a short leash and has to be aggro. But with his career, at least in the short-term future, kind of hinging on him proving he's not a card-liability, I'm worried he w...

Cheers. I reckon with a bit of attention and fine-tuning I could clean 100kg in relatively short order.
