Hi Wal,

Certainly hope so mate, big flip side there, hopefully Fidow can stay injury free. Excited about what he and Lomax can achieve together and with Aumua and Leaware, some definite up and comers who contributed heavily to our last U20 success. It is positive signs for the franchise so I am optimistic another good year can be had. I am also hoping they give Smith a fair chance to run the cutter consistently, I think he may surprise quite a few.

Hi Muzzo,

I see now speculation that it might only be three months but its not ideal regardless. Thems the breaks though, just going to have to find a way.

All the best to you and yours Muzzo, stay safe and lets do it agin in the new decade! 👍

Not the worst place to get some pre season done it has to be said.

Hey Muzzo, hope you are well mate.

Yip, suffered a knee complaint against the English in the semi, turns out he requires surgery with an estimate of 6 months out, majority of the Super season. Certainly with BB leaving it is not great news for the Canes but such is the way with injuries, just have to get on with it.

Hopefully we can get relatively full seasons out of the likes of Coles and TJ. 👍

I don’t think he will let anyone down, he will give it his all.

Overall the squad doesn’t look too bad, plenty of rep experience mixed throughout, loosehead side and first five are the big areas of concern I feel.

Even the one we got for two weeks that didn’t play didn’t make 2 meters! 😛

Thanks Geoff.

Obviously better to have Ardie than not but at least we have an experienced set of loosies available, how they settle at first five will be the interesting question, perhaps even more so if Plum has his mind on other things. Will be an interesting year.

Thank you for your efforts this year Geoff, greatly appreciated and looking forward to another good year next year, albeit with the majority Ardieless and half a Barrett down! 😱

Cheers.

I can confirm Geoff was never much of a winger, right or left side.

Rugby World Cup 2019: the tipping panel wrap

Hi Nick,

Well and truly accepted I believe, well beaten on the day. Some belly aching over semi selections and Hansen but most happy for the Boks.

Certainly the focus has moved on to who will be the next coach and crew.

Very good Chook 👍

Not sure about the belly aching though, seems like a win win to me 😛

Really nice Harry, you have my support! 🏉 😁

You are not required to back the Blossoms. The Boks are brave, too

Thanks Brett.

Cracking set of QFs to come this weekend, really excited.

Come on Wallabies!

Just their best performance of 2019: the Wallabies' simple quarter-final assignment

Thanks for your efforts Nick, much appreciated.

How do you see Wales in this tournament? I would worry that if they were trailing that their attack may not be able to get them back into a match?

Why selection cost the Wallabies their Rugby World Cup game against Wales

Tend to agree Corne, the Wallabies were going forward easily enough at times but the support play and ruck work left a lot to be desired. Over coached perhaps in terms of their attacking play? I do not know but a bit more attention with possession and I thought they could have had the game.

I would say your glass is 80% empty Fionn 😛

But I do agree, alternative’s have been available and it is confusing why they have not been trialled.
