Isolation seems good for the kiwis but seems to lead to isolation and stagnation elsewhere.

Well kiwis will get their wish soon enough if rumours are true that at the end of 2023 when SANZAAR and the poor Rugby Championship meets it’s welcome demise when the Boks make their exit.

'That's a tactical error': Reaction as Springboks' big front row call swings Test to Lions

You heard what the coach and captain said Jacko. They blamed themselves for poor discipline and failure to cope with the Lions kicking game.

I did not say he was a bad player. He is a great player and I admire him. I’m saying that Nic Berry did not see him kneeling on Kolisi.

The coach is to blame for selecting a part time no.8. He was tested under the high ball in the second half and every time it resulted in territory gain for the Lions. There is nothing wrong with the game plan if executed correctly.

He will not be selected for the second test is my prediction.

Nic Berry is blind apparently. He did not see Itoje kneeling on Kolisi’s back and thigh to steal that ruck ball to save a certain try.

Here I found it. After the media called the Boks boring, again.

However, Biggar, who has faced the Springboks several times with Wales, said that when it comes to Test rugby, results will always trump the aesthetics of how one plays.

“Well, we’d all take the style of play they play if we could end up with a World Cup-winners medal at the end of it!” Biggar explained.

This week the all Lions players were all talking about how they admired the Bok game plan based around set pieces, the scrums, the line outs, the mauls and good tactical kicking. They said that playing ugly to win is all that matters.

This is a true story so if you want to be entertained then you can watch SRAU, just a suggestion.

And you forget that they were not tested with this game plan remember that, and talking about remembering the only thing that future generations will remember for generations to come is the Final score for the Web Ellis Cup is the score SA 32 – 12 England.

They play every 4 years mate don’t they? You don’t beat them by playing phase rugby.

Maybe the news did not get to Aoteaora, must be slow internet or something, but newsflash. All the test matches are going to be played at the same venue.

It will win you world cups and a Lions series every 4 years. No team on the planet can beat this so called “boring” game plan.

There is no way that anyone can beat the rush defence by spreading it wide to “entertain”. Where did it wide get England in the RWC final?

One thing for sure is that Kwagga is not the answer at no. 8. He had a poor match and his mistake led to the Lions try. Rassie needs to bring in some meat and Jasper may get a call up for the next match.

Congratulations Lions.

Copying the Bok game plan to beat the Boks. It was not a good viewing spectacle but the only thing that matters is the what the scoreboard says when the final whistle blows. No one can accuse Gatland of being original that’s for sure, and Jonker will have to sleep with one eye open for denying the Boks a perfectly legitimate try.

He should have been on a plane at least two weeks ago to enter the bubble. World Rugby messed up here and now Jonker gets the blame.

Boks snub Lion king Gatland's 'mind games'

Eddie Jones the master mind technician did not have a go at the Boks the same way he baited Hansen in the RWC because having worked with Rassie in the 2007 Jake era he knew it would not illicit a response. Gatland will learn.

It’s a worry Jacko, I can’t understand how Olympic athletes who received their jab in June return positive test results. As long as players are vaccinated they can travel with more assurance to do their job not worrying about ending up in hospital.

All the Bok players should have received their jabs by now and have said that will travel anywhere to play, it’s on record. If it means that the RC is moved to NZ then so be it. Next year will be a different story all together.

Bledisloe Cup in doubt after bubble closure

Sooner or later Jacko borders will need to open, and with the vaccine available governments will need to make their decision to either live with covid or eliminate it. If the elimination strategy interferes with competitions and player availability there will be a revolt from players and club owners.
Know this, Cane is not the only one entitled to throw his toys.

Not forgetting. Do you think that fully vaccinated teams will agree to travel to Aoteaora, or WA and agree to sit in a hotel for two weeks just to play a test match.

The Italians already showed NZR the middle finger this year. Next year more teams will most likely show the middle finger. That two weeks sitting and doing nothing will not be accepted anymore. Don’t worry you can play more SR with each other and forget about international rugby.

There is a Zero chance of postponement Neutral, absolute zero. All matches may even be played in Cape Town since Argentina will be already in their hotel. The kiwis and Aussies will be tested and sent to their hotels. With good test results they will then be allowed to train and play.

Covid is not going to disappear anytime soon, not in 2022 and not in 2023. It will be circling the globe for years. Covid free is only possible if everyone is tested and sent to quarantine, including those who are fully vaccinated.

What will happen next next year when SA and Argentina insists on their home matches. All players and the majority of the population will have received the jabs by then. There will still be Covid around, but will the kiwis quarantine protocols allow the competition to go ahead. I doubt it. All matches for the RC as well as other test matches from 2022 may then be played outside of Aoteaora for years to come.

He wants support players to stay on their blocks, or take out defenders who are often only loosely connected to the ruck itself.

Surely this is illegal under the new player welfare laws coming into effect from 1 August and will be a drop weigh penalty?

Coach’s Corner Issue 21: Have the Wallabies found a winning formula?

The idea behind the box-kick is to give the kicking side a chance at winning back possession at the point of receipt.

Very true Nick, also if it’s a bad kick then the chasing player will also try to knock the ball on deliberately to force a scrum, and then it will be setup to look for a scrum penalty.

You know when he knocked Sinclair out cold. Accidentally of course.

'The be all and end all': Why the Lions series rests on the first Test

Really, what a surprise. I didn’t even know that league had a World Cup. I mean it’s the GB team, the French team, and the two down under teams where the game is played professionally.
