No need for an opinion or comment, just congratulations.
Well said David.

What about your future kids, Izzy?

Yep, it sure is.
Sarcasm might have been at play there……..

What does IE mean….. and try write slower….

Yep for me as well.
Not only the boot (but bloody hell) he is also leading them around beautifully.
I spose it easy to look back now, but how did ever let him go from the Landers, or is it hard to look back, Tman has me all mixed up this morning….

Cheers, but have a couple under the belt now.
Hey by the way, great to see your boys up and about.

For F^%#k sake Tman.
When there is more calculus than coffee first thing it’s just going to bugger my day.

I wonder how MC would have gone with that Wales side.
I’m with you Connor, MC absolutely manipulated the world rankings to get a better WC draw. He’s way smarter than everyone in the Rugby World thinks.

Belt up, Michael Cheika is going to win the RWC his way

Well Peter, I enjoyed your comments and took them in the humour that it was intended.
You probably shouldn’t just single Berny as there are plenty of others that could be suspects….

UPDATE: Rugby Australia deny match-fixing probe, Michael Hooper "shocked" by claims

MH, I have to agree. The Post Cheika era will be something. I think most Roarers have identified young potential talent here. It will be nice to see these player given an opportunity. As Eagle has said below, is the management of those players into professionalism that is the key. Giving them proper mentoring and coaching, experience, testing them, getting them ready for the big dance. A mate of mine is passionate about an international exchange program, with the sole objective being skills based development. Not sure that is the solution, but there is some merit in it.

Wright time to make a mark for Brumbies

Maybe Ken the lines that I write need to be wider so you won’t have so much trouble reading between them. Thank you for your interest, but my original reply was for the interestingly name ClassAct.
Since you have taken the time, let me be 100% on this (so there is no reason for you to think an argument is required) the result obviously isn’t, the suggestion it’s a New Zealand Conspiracy is (just look above).
You would have to agree, this has not been the first time an Allblacks neck rolling conspiracy has been suggested on the forum.

For me KR was a next to perfect mix of both Buck (hard and tough up front) and Zinzan (skillful and open when required).
I have to say most people I know from the Deep South rate him very highly even though he not a real Mainlander.

Surely Ken you don’t subscribe to Deliberate and or Tactical Targeting.
IMO it is purely a technique issue. Pocock and Caine when on the ball have an extremely low body position. To clean a player out and off the ball with that technique there is higher percentage of high contact, multiplied by how often they are on the ball.
To suggest Deliberate Tactics is laughable…..

Multi time of year.

Landers – Upset good value at $3.55
Rebel – At least are showing some consistantcy $1.55
Crusanders – Because $1.12
Sunwolves – Blues have shown nothing to suggest otherwise and the Moons are paying $6
Reds – Unbelievably paying $3.30
Lions – Need this one to stay in the hunt and are at home. $1.27
Bulls – Also need too bounce back this week and are at home. $1.48

Thats a $229.35 Multi
or on the 3 really rough ones Landers, Sunwolves and Reds $70.29 Multi

Super Rugby Round 4 expert tips: No, seriously. Good luck…

That would be from the Wallabies deliberately targeting him…….
Now that is funny.

Hi Fionn
You will need the full 2 weeks for a decent look.
A lot people have try to do both Islands in 3 weeks and spend all their time in the car.
Have general plan but don’t lock too much in (accommodation, attractions). Talk to the locals as you go and tell them which direction your heading and they will give you the inside word on what to see, do and where to stay.
If you’re going to Milford, leave all insect repellent at home and buy a bottle of Dimp at a Chemist, you won’t regret it. The Sand Flies in there have their own runways. Worth the journey though. Don’t forget the Epi Center of New Zealand, “Bluff”. Oysters, Crayfish, Blue Cod and of course the beautiful Weather and Beaches. Well at least we have Seafood…..

Kieran Read to depart New Zealand Rugby after World Cup

Nothing more prove IMO. He is leaving New Zealand probably in a better position that it was when he started. For me, a real pleasure watching his journey.
Based on recent contracts here, at 33 he would probably get a 5 year deal for the Wobblies for anywhere from 1-1.5 Mil a season.
Or has that ship already sunk……

Kieran Read to depart New Zealand Rugby after World Cup

I agree, I think he is that good or certainly will be.
I don’t really get where all this talk around the Reds pack though, not just you, but have seen it over the last couple of weeks popping up from time to time.
IMO they have the most dominant set piece pack is Australia. Also IMO the back 3 are as competent as any other here as a unit. Time will tell with their first local derby this weekend.

The 2019 challenge: Creating front-foot ball when the back foot isn’t moving

That line of thinking will do wonders for development in the Australian Franchises.
There must be a point where there is to much experience and becomes a liability.
The quatify what i have just said, it’s not a good thing having that experince a yard or 2 behind…

Tatafu Polota-Nau loaned to Waratahs as injury replacement

Awesome.
It’s a breath of fresh air to read such a well-considered plan.
I can only see Australian Rugby advancing at a rapid rate with that sort of intellect behind the scenes.
You guys are obviously well connected, as I noticed Will Genia listed as a Tah, is there something we need to know.

Love that.
Have you over heard MC

The only thing better would be
Holloway for Coleman
Hanigan for Pocock
Rona or Newsome for Haylett-Petty

Is that you Tom…..I tell for the tears welling up

I presume you mean any high contact on any player.

I hope that chip on your shoulder doesn’t get any bigger, it end up covering both eyes….

Pocock back for Brumbies clash with Hurricanes

Yes, I hear you Junkie.
I’ve always been of the opinion, never change a winning side though if possible.
It goes to the mind-set of the team that is preforming and rationalising why.
Understand DP is a superior player, but being used to finish games would pay dividends at the business end into National duties. Especially given Cusack is playing pretty good, it will bring him on quicker as well, although that’s solely based on last week’s game.
It is still a good side and it is just one of the awesome contest of this round.

Pocock back for Brumbies clash with Hurricanes

Valetini out does raise questions for me. Has to be an illness or injury.
There are to many changes for my liking, it can only change the team momentum. Injuries and national duties are one thing, but to change for change sake………. against a feely strong Wellington.
Hurricanes are getting back some needed quality players which makes the Brumbies selection even more of a head scratch.
