Hurricanes vs Western Force

Discussion in 'General Rugby Union' started by THE CHIROPRACTOR101, Feb 18, 2006.

  1. canes win 29-5

    but really tho...the force look really really good..they have good control but need more topline players in pivotol positions like fullback,fly half and second five

    maybe the players they have now are those future prospects

    one player that im really impressed with is digby ioane...man he demolished a few of those canes...he went through collins and popped his shoulder hahahaha and he bumped off faatau and masoe like they were little kids...awesome ball carrier and he works like a looseforward

    very impressive tho effort from w-force

    Their fullback was just fine onne of the stand out players. Lineout wasn't too bad either. Brook James just isn't the attacking 5/8. They shoud have kept Scott Dhama (sp) at 5/8. And their backline just kept dropping the ball, once they get a few games under their belt they will be a good team.
     
  4. the game was on while i was at work, so i couldnt watch it,

    but from the kiction, if you stand in a certian spot, you can see the tv from ages away, and i looked at it, just once quickly, and i saw a turnover, skip pass, line break, and a 80m try! couldnt belive my eyes.

    That was one of the few excitements in the game. Most of it was watching the Force kick the ball into touch, win their lineout, get a penalty and again kick the ball into touch. The trend was broken when the Force knocked on but the Hurricanes would only find touch about 40m away.

    yeah he should have started especially for my testrugyb team's sake. eaton got me 2 tries so i am happy. the game seemed to be dominated by the force but they kept kicking to touch and could not break through at all. the force no doubt will be better after another few games.

    I heard it was a broken tibia and fibula bone(very very serious injury)

    looks like he could miss the rest of the season.

    Yeah its a shame coz he would have replaced Umaga for sure..

    I guess Nonu is really the only option now, maybe Rico would be a good option at outside centre [​IMG]......i cant believe the AB's dont use him, hes by far NZ's best winger.....Roco and Dougie are shite IMO

    yeah, they only use them cause they are fast (well rocco is, i dont like doug and think he is over rated)

    rico i dont think would make a good centre though, i think he would be to weak at tackling.

    I am not a fan of nonu at centre, but we dont really have a viable choice other than him. I think with the loss of umanga and smith we have lost alot of depth. which is sad.

    will just have to wait and see what the rest of the season brings us aye
