Blues vs Stormers

  1. :%#%#: Unfortunately sky arent showing this game. So i will have to live off reports etc until i can download the game, anyway the Stormers are brimming with confidence after two away bonus point wins and the Blues have been outplayed in their last two matches. Which all makes for a fascinating contest, the Stormers in my opinion have the most mobile and skillful backrow players in the tournament and will be looking to turnover more ball to give it to the electric Chavanga. Of course the Blues will have their talesman Nick Evans back and will be looking to bounce back with home advantage.

    Got to say i think the Blues will be a bit to strong but i live in hope.. :D

    I like watching the Stormers play and I'm definitely a member of the Burger fan club but it's hard to see them turning over the Blues this week.

    blues played like they were a team of forwards against the force when evans went off. there should be a more established 1st 5 on the bench in case evans takes a knock to the head because i wouldnt put it past nucifora playing evans when hes not at 100 percent.

    3:47am, 40mins to KO. Must stay .. awake... :wacko:

    17-14 full time to the Blues, offside penalty to give the Blues the win...

    I don't like these offside laws, it's stupid....
     
  10. FFS, why give away a penalty with a minute to go, make them work for it. Oh well 3 best teams out of the way and 7 home games.

    Unluckily that Evans was ruled out just before KO. Thought it was going to be a high scoring game with the players on show tonight. Blues were awful tonight imo

    If Atiga had missed that I would personally hunted him down and killed him slowly with my own two hands, especially after missing that sitter of a conversion.

    Bryn Evans from the Hawkes Bay looked good IMO in his first stint, both in lineout and in general play in his short. He's also, along with Boric the only proper tall timber we have. Hopefully we'll see more of him if he can play that for extended periods.

    Although all I can say is hopefully Evans is healthy next week - it wouldn't have been so close IMO if he started, for a start he wouldn't have missed so many kicks and the backline seems disorganised without him at 10. Toeava is also vital, we missed his devasting centre play this week with him being shunted at 10 in the last minute. Has a hell of a punt on him though - defiantly a candidate for the 12 All Black jersey.

    Blues lost there attacking spark in the last 3 weeks? Thought this would be a really good high scoring game with the teams that were playing.

    Were on our 3rd Choice Fly Half in Toeava at the moment with Nacewa and Evans both out, and Toeava hasn't played the position since High School, and was thrust into the position preety much at the last minute with Evans being named to start.

    Whatever happened to Lachie Munro? I thought he'd be in line before Toeava.

    Same, but he has only started a handful of NPC games so I guess Nucifora wants to give him bench time before chucking him into the deep end.

    Bryn Evans isn't that tall though? He looks short, like most of the Auckland locks.

    I'd like to see Toeava have a crack at goal kicking.

    PS: How **** has Lee been the past few weeks?
     
  20. im sure they would have had toeava kicking at goal if they saw it as a realistic option.

    as for lee, ive only seen bits of games, but he hasnt done badly, has he?

    Well it should be a realistic option, he was the goal kicker for the under 19's or 21's or colts (cant remember). He just needs a bit of practice to rekindle his goalkicking attribute.
