Really do feel for Argentina. They were so awesome in the first 50 mins. If there is ever a game where the score line doesn't do the game justice it's this one.
Barrett can't put a foot wrong atm (for convenience sake lets forgets about those couple of penalty kicks). On current form has to be...
Awesome game so far. Argentina have improved so much. On the other hand our defense has pretty suspect. Giving away way too many penalties as well.
I just don't get why the Jaguares struggled in super 18 with these players.
Missed it during the game but dunno what Franks was thinking... And saying there was niggly stuff from the Aussies during the game doesn't excuse it!
Consistent with past decision he should definitely be gone for the rest of the RC.
Good win. Was always going to be more competitive than last week.
Not sure what's wrong with this Aussie side. Their top 15 is pretty darn talented but they just look a bit lost.
And this thread is awful. The whole last page is just people taking potshots at each other. This forum does have...
That's the best I've seen blues play in ages. The West-Francis combo has been awesome in the last couple of games. Kaino-Pryor-Luatua have been great as well.
Even though we are going to end up with wooden spoon again, this has been a much more hopeful season.
Well wasn't expecting that!
There is some talent in that Chiefs squad. Getting off to a flyer probably was a massive boost to the confidence (and adrenaline) for the guys who don't normally get a whole lot of playing time.
Not really any surprises in there, possibly Squire. TKB did move into the No. 2 spot last year playing for the ABs so I am assuming that they are going with the philosophy of not losing your spot while you are injured.
The match day 23 is going to be really interesting with Dagg back. Hope...
Well this game reminded me of the bad old times again. We did look slightly better with Ihaia on the field. Moala and Ranger are still trying to find their feet so still hopeful.
Saying all that Crusaders don't look all that great either. Crusaders of the past would have really put us to the...
Jackson is a crap referee but that no try call was the TMO's fault. Even Jackson sounded bemused when the TMO said that he couldn't see it being grounded. Don't know why Jackson didn't overrule it though (correct me if I am wrong but I think the on field referee can overrule TMO decisions right?).
I don't think he will. He's achieved everything he possibly could. There isn't a better way to bow out than captaining a side to a back to back world cup win.
Hope he stays involved in New Zealand rugby and the All Blacks though.
