A bit of both. Caleb Clarke made the all blacks because in super rugby Aotearoa he would break tackles like he did against Australia, but he was breaking 5 times as many against Australia.Been watching the highlights, were NZ sublime in attack, Australia awful in defence or a bit of both?
another prime example of how different people can see the same things differently, i thought Banks had been pretty good at 15, solid under the high ball, i think o'conner just needs to drop back to give Banks an attacking optionJust finished watching this game.
Australia were so poor. Credit to the All Blacks, full value for their win, but Australia were a different team to last week. Terrible defense, and some very poor handling, and losing Toomua did not help. All Blacks defense was good.
Reece Hodge needs to start at fullback as Tom Banks is not the answer.
If Australia don't come firing out of the blocks in two Saturdays time, then they won't have a chance for the trophy.
wasn't injured... he had cramps and yes they were cramps he even said so in an interview.Clarke is an 80min player, he came off injured. You could see he was getting attention before he was pulled and then limped off the ground.
Ok, fair enough. I thought he looked injured and didn’t see the interview. Then yea, he does need to work on his fitness.wasn't injured... he had cramps and yes they were cramps he even said so in an interview.
players cover significantly more ground in tests than they do in super rugby. Sure he may be able to do 80min most games for the blues but if hes getting cramps from the 60min mark onwanrds for the AB's he has a bit of work to do before he can reliably do 80+ in a tight test match.
and how many times has the AB's worn their indigenous jerseylove the indigenous jerseys. just wondering why its taken so long. i thought it wouldve been a no brainer when it first came out but its only been worn 3 times in 3 years.
at the WC it was only worn once against Uruguay. talk about giving it as little exposure as possible.
lame effort RA
