    I don't get NZ's schedule. Why aren't they playing England and Ireland? have they not played enough dead rubbers?

    It'll be just a post-Halloween fright then :confused:.

    Neither does the current French team. And not with a 3 day turnaround btw both games.

    meh, doubt it'll make a difference. Apisai is a very good replacement.

    True, at least we still have one half of the bash bros in there :p
    I just hope a good crowd shows up, the team have been awesome this year and deserve a good send off to the premiership.

    I would have had Goosen instead of Seta. Seldom mentioned but a standout for Lions/Canes and a far better defender. Gets better every game and just needs his chance.

    Looking at that itinerary, I can't see the AB's losing a game.

    If we do then this will officially be our worst season since 09. In fact it may be anyway...

    Based on his Wellington form, I'm going with the former...
    Will be especially Juicy if he's up against Ioane... more likely to be one of the new boys though.

    I've been looking at Aumua on Youtube and he looks like a bigger version of Laumape
    He has some pace that kid, and he is not afraid to shrug tackles and keep going or lay the ball off, he looks like a real prospect, but the jump to test level is substantial from provincial rugby.
    I hope he gets a decent run at some stage.

    If he's half as impressive on this tour as he has been in provincial rugby and was in the U20 RWC then I can see him taking Taylor's shirt. I don't think it can be understated quite how impressive he is.

    im just worried about aumua's tight5 work. coles started out as a seagull but is a real work horse in the dark arts now. he's also the most accurate lineout thrower (last saturday aside where he missed 2).
    aumua brings a lot to the table, ball carrying and scrummaging. but its the clean outs ,rucks and maul work that he needs to work more at. mind you if he keeps get given the ball and made to run as much as possible i'll be happy with that as well.

    I'm think a slightly higher margin vs France 12-15 and slightly lower vs Scotland 15-18.
