He's absolutely carving up, that was a lovely touch by Jordan too, has to start all the time now.

Where's Zakar - I want to gloat.

That was a great finishing cross-kick from TJP to find Bridge.

Will that be replacing both Subiaco and WACA for AFL and cricket respectively
No, not entirely for cricket - tests at the WACA, some one dayers at the new stadium on drop ins. At least as currently planned.

I went to the first Bled there a couple of years ago - despite being an oval shape, the stands lift steeply and the atmosphere is fantastic.

Jordan is on that early Rokocoko strike rate at the mo. Has to be a starter for sure

Six games is roughly 500 minutes. We’d be set to face all comers after that.

Not a very friendly pass from Perenara, looked like he absolutely belted it behind Blackadder

Haha guess there is some effect to losing a player for 20 mins. ABs defence looking a bit less resolute now

You are probably correct. It may not have been meant for him.

Our ruck d has been poor. Well keep getting picked apart by running 9's.
Thankfully the saffas 9's only box kick

What’s the take on Lonergan?

Under 100kgs is incredibly lightweight for a test hooker these days.

In the replay Perenaras eyes was looking wide out, he wasn't even making eye contact with Ethan.

Nothing wrong with it. Solid on their feed. Penalties have been putting pressure on Aus feed.

I think NZ will beat SA comfortably but the Saffas wont turn over the ball like that . Too many mistakes from Australia. Hard to believe in the 90s it was their defense was what won them RWCs. Way too loose.

I enjoyed that :nod:

Both Ioanes were excellent. Akira finally living up to his talent, and Reiko looks so much better on the wing.

I thought Beauden had one of his better games in general play, but his goal kicking just isn't up to it. Can't have a performance like that off the tee against the Boks.

That's a pretty humiliating defeat. It's not like the Aussies played badly either, just ragdolled.

If you know the ref is going to ping you every time, why not just keep it stable and not drive so much? would that be better in such a situation? If your hard work will not be rewarded but is likely to be punished?

No way will there be 2 intercepts. Faf's pass to Morne and his own boot is much too fast . Impossible
