And Cheika's side just beat the Rebels who beat last year's finalists too.
I think the beginning of the season - as thing are still shaking out and form lines are coming through - is a good time to do these assessment type articles.
What did you think of what I said about Chieka's style?
Youre right about his Australian coaching team ambition. Its important, given his otherwise odd situation, that he makes it a proper team effort.
Yeah, poor phrasing Digger! haha. I meant as the teams that have won the conference in recent years.
I'm on the Hurricanes bandwagon now. I want a new winner!
