I mentioned on the weekend that leading into the Super Rugby finals series I was genuinely concerned – fearful, even – that the best two teams in the comp to that point couldn’t meet in the final.
Wellington: Well, that’s not gone well. Even though we knew it was possible, I don’t know that too many Australian fans seriously entertained the thought of an all-New Zealand Super Rugby final next Saturday.
If the Waratahs were flying at the top of the Super Rugby table, and the transition toward Daryl Gibson taking over as coach had been underway for some time, you could easily conclude that balancing two jobs and switching between two hats isn’t really affecting Wallabies and Waratahs coach Michael Cheika.
Well, well, well. What have we here? We have someone very bullish about not being isolated at the bottom, that’s what we have.
The National Rugby Championship’s (NRC) full draw and broadcast schedule was announced last week, with planning and the clubs themselves starting to ramp up for the fledgling competition’s equivalent of the important second album.
We all suspected it might be the case, but the World Rugby refereeing ‘clarifications’ announced last week, which I outlined on Thursday, are evidently going to take some time to take proper effect – if indeed there is any real effect to take.
