:lol: so who's left?
Tony Woodcock and Greg Sommerville. You should know Tialata well enough now as well.
Therefore the status quo still remains the same - Our Front Row > Your Front Row,
plenty still left like ripper side. woodcock, sommerville and tialata are all proven performers at the top level. we maybe losing playing but there still is quality left and more coming through.
if anything, its otago that are stuffed
losing their front row lolz
Surprised Dermodys leaving, he finally gets a small role in the All Blacks and with Haymen leaving he should've had at least a Bench Spot every game sewn up for the All Blacks.
But i'm not that worried, as long as Mike Cron is still in the mix we will still be fine, Haymen looked like he would be one of those players who played a couple of tests and that was it, but under Cron he developed into the best scrummager in the world. Ditto with Tony Woodcock (Who's resigned till 2009 - Woot).
yeah mike cron is a legend and has played a massive role in sorting out the abs scrum. he is a big reason when the nz front row has been so good over the last few years and why the abs have so many quality props now
Or how about that huge prop from the Baby Blacks? He performed very well at the Under 19 World Cup this year. I think he's Tongan, his last name is Afeaki, sound familar? So he has a good future.
Is he related to Ionie? The one who used to play for Wellington? From memory he was about the make the All Blacks, than the rules changed so he went overseas and suddenly wanted to play for Tonga after shunning them.
Ben Afeaki is the younger brother of Tongan internationals Inoke & Stanley Afeaki.
He is a big unit.
Come on Ripper, everyone knows that even Harlow College 4th XV front row > Australia's front row! :lol:
