Round 4: Crusaders v Blues

Discussion in 'General Rugby Union' started by THE CHIROPRACTOR101, Feb 28, 2006.

  1. yes..i know everyone is predicting an upset but i dont think the crusaders are up to beating the blues this saturday...

    tasesa :%#%#: lavea...if his hideous form (which is accepted in the grand game of rugby league) continues this weekend..?..

    ...i swear....no honestly i will..ill be like f*** you lavea..f*** you..you stink c***
    there is a difference between npc level and super14 level where super14 isnt as grunt and as slow from setpiece and he seems to be confused by that...

    i give him another weekend....to live...if he fails...hes gone and ripper will be your new blues first 5

    Were f***ed.

    End of Story.

    Unless Lavea catches Bird Flu and dies... maybe we should send him to Hamilton, he would be bound to catch some disease there.

    We're gona get rolled up & smoked, thank f*** we're not playing at home! I had to suffer the defeat by the the Hurricanes in the f***in rain last time, I get tired of throwing bottles at opposition supporters! only coz they don't fly far enough to hit Lavea & wake him up!Make ya self useful this week Lavea & head high Carter, you'll probably get the yellow ticket but it'd be the best 10 minutes of the season for him yet!! We're f***d

    in hamilton??

    have you walked down queen street lately?

    with half of Shanghai located in inner city auckland i wouldnt be suprised if Lavea already has a mutated super form of bird flu. bird-sars. thats probably what hes got.

    what ever hes got i wish it would hurry up and work...

    seriously i think the blues might have a shot. if they can knock over the crusaiders then i think there season is definately back on track.

    Yeah I think the Blues have a shot too................the Crusaders are still going through the transitional stage of replacing Marshall...................McCaw is good but not really a Marshall type yet when leading as a senior player.

    I want the Crusaders to win cos I sold my soul to them in 2000 when at the 60 minute mark of the final against the Brumbies I pledged that if they did the impossible and won that day I would support them forever................they did.

    Crusaders :bravo: ................the team that denied the Brumbies of S12 dominance. S12 will be forever known as the Crusaders legacy...........no other team had the consistency to match and overtake the Brumbies. Without the Crusaders all NZ rugby would be bowing to the team from ACT as the team of the S12 era.

    Huh, that was something impressive in the past! Do you guys remember the North Island vs South Island encounters? Did you heard about that legendary competition (i wonder why they took it off) ?

    Super 12 killed the North/South games as well as the AB trials. The selectors now use the S12 for their guide on chosing the start of year international players.

    I wish the Tri nations had not expanded. I actually would have like a return of north Island/south Island games and believe it would have taken off with a 3 game series, kits that were not back vs white (more predominantly blue for the north with colours representing the northern unions mixed in and predominantly red for the south with colours of the southern unions mixed in. The Blue and Red domination in colours for the two sides reflecting the historically most successful union from each Island. The jerseys styled in a way that people would see them as worth wearing around the street. Also both teams having nicknames like the SOO teams do in aus). However with an ever expanding International season this was never going to happen.

    Also a north isl vs south isl series with all the hype, intensity, rivalries, sponsorship, etc, would have been a step up from S14 rugby and on a par with International rugby. THE PERFECT TRAINING GROUND FOR ALL BLACKS!!!!!

    But we will never know. Instead the training ground for AB's is the S14 where the Aussies and S.A's can keep a gage on what we are doing. Not very insightful thinking from our Union bosses. Money seems to call too many shots nowadays............but we can't buy ourselves a RWC title.

    Back off topic...... Wouldn't you rather see more Bledisloe games? personally i think the Bledisloe cup is the best thing outside the WC and in particular knocking the kiwis out of the World Cup.I think the expansion of the Tri nations is the best thing to happen in a long time.

    Back on topic..... why would you want Ralph out of the side?....... he's a class player , much better than Hamilton IMO

    The Truth: "personally i think the Bledisloe cup is the best thing outside the WC "

    Do you know that you lost Bledisloe something like 35 years in a row in the past?

    Reserves: 16 - Tim Dow, 17 - Saimone Taumoepeau, 18 - Kurtis Haiu, 19 - Angus Macdonald 20 - Junior Poluleuigaga, 21 - Vili Waqaseduadua, 22 - Brent Ward.

    Look forward to seeing the battle up front, will be a battle of the big names in NZ rugby. I'm not writting the Blues off in this one but would have to say (looking at recent performances) that the Blues are screwed.
    Great match ups everywhere (depending if Mauger is playing), should be a game well worth watching.

    Good question. I assumed it was NZ but i remember that it was the 88 tour that we beat the Aussies. Or maybe it was the 87???

    Gee I can't remember what year it was. All I remember was Buck was angry we drew the last game and did not get a 3 nil whitewash.

    But Auckland has TECHNOLOGY.

    The people in Hamilton think that everytime there is an eclipse, a monkey is eating the earth.
