that coming from a guy who said we would lose to Harbour...Originally posted by ..::ERIC::..@Oct 16 2005, 10:51 AM
If Otago play like they played vs Canty they will easily win. I'm loving the arrogance of the Auckland fans and can only hope the players are full of **** aswell.
I agree, but really, when you're defending 10-20 metres out from your line, especially against Canterbury, you're not going to stop them by sliding across your line. They really should have tried to meet them at least. Those three tries were very soft, and really one of the only things that really needs to be fixed before this weekend. Naturally, I'm going for the underdog again, and I really do think they can pull it off.Originally posted by ..::ERIC::..@Oct 16 2005, 03:48 PM
Horton is really the only defencesive weakness in the Otago backline. Scott Hamilton easily beat him twice to score and set up two tries and one on one with any other the Auckland backs (bar Lavea) he will get beat. However I think the Otago defence structure doesn't put him in situations where he has to make these tackles apart from at scrum time.
That's a very, very good point....Originally posted by Southern man@Oct 16 2005, 09:07 PM
Another reason why we will win, is that we are due.
It was seven eyars between our first two titles with the first in 91 and the second in 98, so seven eyars later we are in the final again. So you can't stop fate
Damn it, I pulled out a Los Lover!!! >_<Originally posted by Southern man@Oct 16 2005, 09:32 PM
