Boshier very unlucky I hope that have had a chat to him to let him know what they need from him so he doesn’t get disheartened

All Blacks name 38-man squad for final Bledisloe Cup games and Tri Nations

He has been epic for Wellington especially in the NPC where he has just been made captain!

Melbourne must be congratulated for developing v talent also the number of origin and international players that they have developed who had t played nrl for other clubs is outstanding

The NRL needs a Panthers grand final win, but Cam Smith will get his fairytale

He was excellent yesterday in open play and the scrums I thought he helped turn them in the ABs favour

The Wrap: Player welfare no concern as All Blacks take it up a notch in Auckland

Agree 100% BB a great player but not a pure 10 where ball playing kicking and decision making are more important than running the Haig is where Barrett excels. I would pick Mo’unga at 10, Jordie at 15 and BBBB on the bench covering 10/15 and comming on making an impactlate with fresh legs in the true finisher sense of the word

Sometimes you have to straighten or cut infield, usually that’s when the sidelines there as it as I think he was tackled 1/2-1m from the touch line! I think he didn’t expect Mo’unga to make such a great tackle!

I don’t care what they say or how they try to justify it. Pulling out at the last minute is poor form when you agreed to the comp knowing everything that was going on

The Wrap: Player welfare no concern as All Blacks take it up a notch in Auckland

Yet SARU knee all this when they agreed to the tournament but decided to wait to a few days ago to pull out! Argentina already here stadiums etc booked! Why didn’t they pull the player welfare card weeks ago?

It’s a case of whiteline fever that lots of good players have had

All Blacks produce second-half blitz to claim dominant Bledisloe 2 win

We were lucky the Aussies were rightly denied that try next to the posts for the double movement though????

Lucky to have the try dissallowed correctly that makes no sense at all, not lucky lack of patience from the wallabies hooker and good defence no luck what so ever

All Blacks produce second-half blitz to claim dominant Bledisloe 2 win

However, the TMO ruled the hooker had unfairly advanced the ball after being tackled? Very positive way to write it up, the most obvious of double movements would be more accurate!

Storm team untouched? You’re having a laugh the players the storm unloaded durning those years would win a premiership

Six talking points from the NRL preliminary finals

How many do Qld have to choose from now? An exhibition are you kidding?

Six talking points from the NRL preliminary finals

You wouldn’t be very good at science Sam your article shows almost half the teams in the comp were fined yet you choose to only notice the storm?

Six talking points from the NRL preliminary finals

Proof of cheating all those years please? I’d rather support the storm who develop a roster and develop great players who then end up expensive than a club that just buys internationals / origin players from other clubs. Not mentioning any names here but I think we all know who I’m talking about

Six talking points from the NRL preliminary finals

How much poorer will the rep season be due to player unavailability? Is the trade of worth it?

Thanks Jacko!

All Blacks make raft of changes for Eden Park Bledisloe showdown

Didn’t know those stats Jacko but worth me having a look into it. It’s a very valid point!

Maybe they can swap and not tell the coach might be for the best

Harsh on Mo’unga look at possession and territory stats hard to live off those as a 10

Agree re Goodhue he’s a 13 and Laumape or ALB at 12

Cool must have missed it, can you explain why they have waited till now with no changes to consider pulling out after Argentina’s arrival?

The quick questions: Unlearn all your learned Bledisloe Cup learnings

I find it interesting that nz rugby got kicked from pillar to post for trying to change the schedule to allow players home for Christmas, yet SARU can decide now that they just might not come! Nothing has changed they were aware of what was going on when the schedule was decided yet I’ve read minimal criticism of them! Poor old argentina are out here waiting for a tournament that may not happen, they should hit SARU up for costs if they pull out!

The quick questions: Unlearn all your learned Bledisloe Cup learnings

”At the heart of that bristling sense of competition is Nic White. The tantrums are gone but the jostling sense of humour is still there. White will still be talking trash and needling, but he’ll do it under control.“ very easy to do when things are going your way, let’s see what happens when they aren’t before praising change.

How Dave Rennie’s Wallabies moved on from Cheika-ball at the Cake Tin

Agree, while watching the game I thought NZ would so well running into the win with a very good chance of regaining possession from kicks with the ball been blown back towards them. For some reason they didn’t try it or execute it regularly at all. The all blacks were starved of quality ball due to a combination of wallabies playing well, errors on kick retrieval and mistakes.
