They’ve done their bit. More than can be said for your lot, whoever they are.

Time for rugby diplomacy and new stadiums in the Pacific

I attended the National Stadium at Laucala Bay in Suva over the years to copete in school carnivals and to watch rugby of all sorts. The issue with these stadiums is cost of living; people do not make much. To cover all sorts of costs, bigger capacity stadiums would be needed which creates problems of its all (ask the Athens or Rio Olympics people)

Time for rugby diplomacy and new stadiums in the Pacific

To anyone critical of the teams’ performance … they need to remember this game was played in Townsville. Weather today in Brisbane was hot; can add 3-4 degrees and an extra 20% in humidity when it comes to Townsville. The conditions are very similar to playing in Fiji! I spent 3-4 years in the Townsville region not to mention my Fijian heritage.

Boks coach bemoans 'bounce of the ball' as youngster's massive play secures All Blacks win

that’s too much effort. Not worth it. I’ve seen the defending lock caught in the middle of the rolling maul reach out and grab hold of the ball carrier. That’s all that was needed.

I was pointing out a factual error, not boasting.

How the Springboks can overcome the All Blacks – and not just this year

Not bring it down but certainly drive him out ball and all. That breaks up the maul and ball is back in play again.

One of the big issues the WBs have is their ball handling skills. It’s much, much less of an issue for Quade and that’s what the WBs need more of .. ball handlers!!

Rugby Championship turnaround: What a difference a Quade makes

Yep but it means you defended against a maul and stopped the roll successfully. Splintering was another defensive technique.

The Pumas beat the ABs last year (2020)!

You can. it usually means you are tackling the ball carrier so you isolate him from the maul. At that point, the maul is deemed to have broken up. I’ve seen this time and again but there is an art to it.

Citizen Quade: 'To not know if I could come home was a daunting feeling,' says 'grateful' star

Living here in Australia, I can assure you that rugby is NOT played in the SH summer. It’s not possible.

World Rugby explores option of making RWC a biennial event

You can’t have one window for BOTH north and south. Weather conditions won’t allow it.

I said “sad form”. Genia is also in the same situation except he was born in PNG.

Up to 1963, First Australians (Aboriginals) were not considered citizens of Australia.

Doubtful. He’s part of that Young Lib faction but just reined in now.

Fiji vs Argentina RWC 1987. ????

Looking beyond sport, Australia has sad form in this.

Yep but direct quotes means that is what the person said (in the case of print media, that is). But I think the use of the word “hate” is overly dramatic.

Why I don't understand the Springboks hate

It came in direct quotes last year from Rassie. Given his behaviour, no surprise there. And I didn’t say it was the team saying that: just those around them.

Why I don't understand the Springboks hate

Part of it is the attitude from those around the team. Last year the Boks really annoyed a lot of people by continually referring to themselves as the world champions (true but needless) and not wanting to play in the RC to protect their world point standings.

Which is a bad look for Nine given the money they spent on rugby and the fact the CM ran something on the game.

'A grovelling apology from me': World reaction to Quade brilliance and 'one dimensional' Boks

You’d be surprised, GH, given the restructuring in the industry over the last few years. But probably, yep.

'A grovelling apology from me': World reaction to Quade brilliance and 'one dimensional' Boks

well this was in Brisbane. The first run I wouldn’t have thought would have made it interstate or am I getting the sequence mixed up?
