My son's teacher's son is playing (Liam McNamara). She gives out all his Australian Sevens kits to the kids in school. My son has his training jersey...fits me like a glove.

He's pretty versatile and can fill in anywhere in the back three. Hope he does well.

I won't be watching on account of the fact a builder doing our renovations severed the Foxtel and the NBN cable yesterday. We may be a month without television or internet.

in the news for him to shift to 6, might be a good idea with Ardie in top form..whats better than one pilfering openside than 2.. fiji have used this idea before (we had 3 once lol with qera, botia and yato at 8, 6 and 7)

Geez that's a patched up Chiefs outfit.
They still seem to play with a lot of pace, and can score good tries, but there's a serious lack of quality/experience there.

We have absolutely no way of knowing which of the Jeckyl or Hyde Chiefs teams are going to show up on the day, so any predictions are mere wild-ass guesses at best.

Great to see Sam Cane getting a start after his off-the-bench performance last week, hope his return to form continues well.

Same with the Reds, mate. I'd say without Kerevi they will get smashed but you honestly just don't know. They racked up 6 tries last week against the Tards.

the return of Mr Cane may well prevent the Reds' forwards from making total arses of themselves in Hamilton's seedy late-night precincts since they will be too busy nursing their bruises.

I hope he chases and beats these boys all night - Duncan Paia’aua, Sefa Naivalu, Bryce Hegarty, Tate McDermott, Angus Scott-Young, Liam Wright, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto

Although i suspect Paia'aua has too much pace and foot work, and Lukhan is a big unit so not likely......

The first angle looked like he dropped it. The second and third angles didn't. But the TMO made up his mind from just the first angle.

Not many straight lines being run by the Chiefs backs at the moment.

Big try right on halftime for them right on halftime.

Keeeriiiist, do the Chiefs have to bobble the ball when they catch every single pass? this is not good for blood pressure

OK, that wasn't bad. Always good to score at the half.

I think that was because Gus was saying that Cane had pulled him over.

Yeah because the defending player, just meters from his own try line, always tries to pull the attacking player over the goal line. :roll:

In all fairness it did look something like that in realtime, someone going for a pilfer can easily pull someone towards them. Decision shouldn't have taken so long once the elbow shuffle was seen though.

Seriously though the first or second replay showed the player on the ground with the ball crawling just like the GIF Guy posted. Especially considering the earlier Chiefs try that was disallowed for the same offence.

How the fudge can a country with AFL as it's most popular winter sport produce such f**king appalling kickers in rugby? It's genuinely embarrassing how useless our kickers are.
