Having that winger hugging the touch line is so dangerous. Nice to see someone doing it other than Reece.

Not at all. That was a first term promise but second term it's open season. They haven't promised anything at all but I'd say tax increases are almost a certainty.

I would back Swarbrick to win that. She seems to have really done her homework on this. I also think Smith is 20 years past his expiration date.

Re: Under-used players in Super Rugby Aotearoa 2020?

We easily have depth for 6 but not really the hone bases for it. Where would no.6 go? It’s why I’m all for opening up eligibility for NZ players in Aussie to allow our depth to get game time instead of getting stuck on the bench.

Tekau ma tahi is eleven. Tekau ma rua is twelve etc. it’s simple once you know the rules.

There’s a big push in the public sector to strengthen all this so I’ll be on a course soon I’d say.

Maa Nonu for me. From 2003-07 I thought he was just a one dimensional bosher who was greedy, lacked vision and creativity and tended to die with the ball or worse lose the ball in contact. However from 2008-15 he established his combination with Conrad Smith and became truly world class and one of ...

Naki, all this is true but which changes do you think would have made a positive impact? Certainly at the time the only questionable selection was Scott but the armchair critics best friend is a little hindsight. Edit: I personally think very few positions would have made a difference. Smith at 15 m...

I recall Cruden having a shortish punt for maybe a season before it miraculously seemed to disappear? He was never going to match Carter but I always had the impression he worked hard on it and there was definite improvement.

I don’t see much gloating, though it probably explains the OTT responses I sometimes get when I say I think, as a nation, we did pretty well. I guess I don’t move in those circles, but I can guess how insufferable it would be, largely based on the Mong.
