    All Black's Rule, Unstopable and now with Reuben Thorne in the side, well you just couldn't ask for more, except Paul Miller at Number 8 (well he could play anywhere 1-15)
     
  4. They do have a habit of peaking in between world cups though don't they.

    I get the feeling that GH is sandbagging a bit. Not showing what his side(s) is/are fully capable of quite yet. He plays his so-called "A" side for a crucial game but then will rest some players for other games.

    I expect a relatively inexperienced squad to go north for the autumn tests with lots of fringe players getting their last opportunity to press for a place in GH's world cup plans. This will also rest the key players for what will be a huge upcoming year.

    And as from the start of next year that is when his preparations will step up a gear.

    What the All Blacks are doing now is good but wait until next year - that is when the real masterplan will be unleashed and as far behind as some other countries are will be even more exposed.

    Given that the All Blacks are favourites to win in Auckland and with that result will guarantee that they retain the Tri-nations cup - I would expect some interesting selection choices for the tour of South Africa.
