Don’t you think we’re going through a lean patch fowards wise though

The backs are good- but fowards aren’t exactly scaring top opposition
Just think for 5 seconds that the Pumas have not even been able to be scared by anyone this year :( (bar one match against Australia F).

Is Foster scared to undervalue the Pumas, and that is why he is not doing something more experimental?

Got my ticket. Half-way line (ish) second tier up. Only $90, good value for premium seat at a Test IMO

Looking forward to a cracking game.
Did they get you with the ol' bait and switch?

Strange to see this NZ team picked this week after the team picked last week.

Logic would dictate they should have been the other way around.
I reckon this will be a great game for the local rugger fans. I will be able to just enjoy the rugby instead of carrying on like a pork chop at every twist and turn. Will be a treat to watch the AB big guns against a talented Puma side. One of my favourite players, Madera, for MOTM!
Fair play to you. I must say I have never paid good money to go and see an international game here in which NZ were not involved.
Its a good experience, I have been to lots of test matches as a neutral and had a great time. Best is still probably Ellis Park 2002 for Wallabies v Boks, feral environment and last minute win.

Maybe we should have started this team last week?

Scott Barrett and TJ Perenara look to have paid for their performances last week.
Exactly they should have started this team last week. The 2 games against the pumas are ideal for rotation and experience building.

They have also given the impression that this is the A team even though they were saying they don’t have one after the loss to the wallabies
I am still a fan of trying out combinations against a stronger team in a game that doesn't really matter. What do you learn in a hiding (with apologies to Argies fans )?

So long as they don't change 2/3 of the team. What do they learn from that, the B team isn't as good as the A team, but what about the individual players - which ones are capable of playing in the A team when they are all part of a losing effort.

It's simple science, you change just 1 variable at a time. If, for example, you want to see if Laumape might be a better option than Goodhue, then put him outside Smith & Mo'unga and give him the damn ball.

The AB selectors have form for doing this - making wholesale changes and not just a couple at a time - and it pisses me off; just seems like they aren't that bright.

The worst thing about that Frizzell shove and subsequent handbags is that it prevented any replay of the no arms tackle that put Barrett down.

Actually agree with Marshall there - if you're gonna card cynical offences like Scott Barrett's, that should be a card also.

Cause you're in front of the offside line and haven't been played onside.

Not sure what Gus called there, he said the player hadn't changed his bind so he was fine in terms of the maul, then Smith took the ball out of the maul and he ripped the ball. He didn't say 'offside' just knocking the ball out of HB's hands.

It's been ruled for years that a player who is part of a maul or ruck who'd otherwise be in an offside position can't play the halfback when the ball is cleared.

Anyway, nice try by the Pumas good build up and pressure. Not sure about the pen advantage though, didn't seem like Cane actually played the ball.
