100% agree… watch the players duck into tackles and stay down if they ever get a little tap on the head… these new laws are killing the game… Aki our for the World Cup for an accidental collision is just ludicrous

World Rugby’s high tackle framework will lead to ducking

Good read, Japan have certainly saved this tournament, lets hope they give the Saffas a good crack and make it even deeper into the tournament

Japan rescues World Cup from flames of disaster

And that everybody is what we spectators wanted to see… how good was that game (Japan v Scotland)… great performance by both teams, minimal intervention by the referee and best of all no cards given… hope the rest of the referees can take a leaf out of Ben O’keefes book and let the game flow coz that’s when Rugby is at its greatest… Well done Japan!

The Rugby World Cup has turned into a joke

He’s the most Bias commentator that belittles everyone else and never gives credit to the opposition when the wallabies lose. Never met a wallaby supporter who actually enjoys his commentary.

Fair point, guess if you didn’t play for the wallabies you don’t deserve an opinion about rugby.

Phil kearns is a muppet… if it was the wallabies at threat he’d be singing a different tune… and to say you flogged them last World Cup when you were gifted the win due to an incorrect reffing decision just confirms that you have absolutely no idea about rugby and shouldn’t be given any air time

Losing sexton was a big blow for sure and I think they did become complacent after those two early tries… thought that the game was won but how wrong they were

Japan the giant slayers

Absolute madness if you think anyone’s strategy would be to lose a Match in the hope to verse the all blacks… any logical strategy would be to avoid the all blacks at all costs

Japan the giant slayers

What a story that would be… albeit highly unlikely

The All Blacks we’re getting dominated in territory and possession for large periods of the match, especially in the first half, yet the Saffas failed to capitalise… then the ABs had a 5-10 minute period where they were in control and they scored two tries, that’s why they are the best team in the world.

Not sure what game some of you were watching but the ref was in no way in the ABs favour, he let a lot go but it went both ways and the non yellow card incident would even sway me to say he favoured the Saffas.

Got 3 more games now to work out the kinks. Looking forward to meeting again in the final!

Five talking points from All Blacks vs Springboks

I like the way you think… Would love to see that final to be honest… as well as the northern hemisphere teams have been going, the saffas and the all blacks should be able to handle anything they dish out… but if that’s the final I’m banking on the all blacks breaking that every 3rd World Cup stat

Rugby giants to do battle: New Zealand vs South Africa World Cup preview

I disagree, our roster is far from top 4 material in comparison to other clubs… we will never be structured like the Aussie clubs that’s not how the kiwis play, back yourselves and stick to the expansive style footy that got you to the grand final all those years ago… might not lead to sustained success as you say but will be much more entertaining then the mediocrity we’ve been seeing this season… but this won’t happen under Kearney

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Bellyache won’t ruin his legacy by going to a subpar club

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

But why do that with Johnson, and not the rest of the squad who were underperforming?

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Blake Green is good without being spectacular, it was his combination with Johnson that i liked… great support half but shouldnt be the main man… in saying that i dont think he was the problem this year, hard to do much with a no go-forward forward pack… and yes 2011 was better then the score line suggests, but missed our moments

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Could be onto something here Tazz, I like the way you think

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Ditching Johnson was a terrible move imo, especially the way it was handled which caused it to happen earlier then expected and without a ready made replacement

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Can’t agree more, Kearney is killing us

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

I hate this argument, don’t need Aussies just need quality players… current NZ test squad would easily cover the salary cap, lots of great players in the kiwi line up

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Exactly, agree with basically everything you just said… how they let certain players slip through their fingers and then bring back has beens is beyond me… especially when you see those players killing it at other clubs

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Clutching… mathematically maybe but no one seriously believes the stars will align and the warriors go through this year

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

RTS, CHT and Maumalo the shining lights in an otherwise forgettable year… think the focus needs to be on the forward pack, used to have the size advantage over every other club, hasn’t been the case for some time and it’s showing

What went wrong for the Warriors in 2019?

Was that Perenara in the bunker? When will this guy get the sack… how did the whole world see it one way and he another? Absolute joke

Is this the most bizarre bunker overrule of the season?

Should of dropped Reiko for Laumape. Reiko has done nothing this year, and won’t feature in any of the big games. Laumape can play wing if needed but we will miss his running ability.

All Blacks name imposing World Cup squad, complete with shock omissions

Wow… Ben Stokes has to be one of the luckiest players in the world… How the umpire didn’t give that out is beyond me… World Cup victory and now this, he needs to buy himself a lottery ticket

How a botched run out, another umpire howler and a burned review cost Australia the Test
