Does this count as a tri-nations game then? I've completely lost track of how anything works this year.

Thanks. I have been so busy lately I haven't been able to follow much rugby. Although I did get to watch bled 1 to 3.

I prefer the term "Plainsmen".

But no, they missed their last shot at Eden Park due to the Rona.

Oz A terrible against the Argies. Maybe Rennie has picked the best team.

Without the Saffas in the competition, this is likely to be the critical game of the Rugby Championship (though ABs have an advantage with the winning bonus point and points differential in the first game).

Quite a bit of A-grade quality left completely out of the ABs squad for this one - ripe for an upset.

Tuipulotu ruled out due to illness, with Tupou Vaa’i taking his bench spot.

Rieko with the blonde hair looks like a minor baddie who Mel Gibson kills halfway through a Lethal Weapon movie.

It's a cunning plan. Trump will complain about electoral fruad and the defence will say "hey, what about these illegal votes for Trump from New Zealand?".

Nicely done. Perfect bounce but would have put NZ under pressure regardless.

I'm using the one from last week's match thread. Page 2 or 3 I think.

Oz in for a good start.

Wow even though they broke in the end that was magnificent defense by the Wallabies. Most other teams would have broken earlier it was so relentless. Nic White needs a kick up the arse for not finding touch.
