Wow, great photo. TMO got everything spot on, if you watch that try in real time seemed like an incredibly tough call.

Edit: looks like it was after the initial 'try'.
That was my thought too - still shots are like a black glove.

Nah... sorry. Replays clearly showed he lost it before touching down. Good call.

I've lost track of the injury status of our front row stocks. It'll be nice to have some more quality options like Moli stepping up.
Moody is fine, will be back soon. Franks is still a couple of weeks away.

The other contenders (Big Karl, Ofa, Laulala) are all fit.

Moli is outplaying all of them at the moment
What is the story with Hames?
In the squad but ongoing concussion symptoms

I have picked up another Chiefs player as a client who won't make it back (hence the referral to me) dammit. One of the times when you don't want a client :((
Is it McNicol, if you can''t say, wink once for yes and twice for no. (Please be no, he was scheduled to return for the Magpies in the NPC).

A replay that no-one but the TMO saw was the reason for the baffling no-try decision against the Chiefs on Friday night.

Apart from the fact that the front on replays showed that he lost the ball

I had a coach who would make you do many extra laps in training if you ever lost the ball over the line. Even just dotting down would draw his wrath. He said that many tries were lost because of poor finishing. We practised that bit exactly. Going over the line with the ball held in two hands with your body on top.

I thought it made a lot of sense. He'd be spewing at the efforts of some of todays professional players.

A kid in my son's U12 team has fluffed 3 tries this season purely from dropping the ball as he tried to put it down. Two of them were after 80m solo effort tries too.

He was told to spend 10 minutes at training practicing diving over the line with the ball in two hands.

I remember some fijian sevens players f**king it up in comical fashion, its just stupid and no one should do it, must drive coaches mad, it drives me mad as a supporter, and it did worse when I was playing and it was teammates botching tries, trying to gloat and make fun of the opposition while scoring. Score first then fucken gloat.

its still a fuckup, and its one of the few times im glad if fiji loses and they are not playing samoa, its when then start to get arrogant and fudge up a try like that.

That tackle is a thing of beauty, i hope that botched try cost them the match.
