I love my Rugby as I am from Nelson NZ and played for 15 years before a serious injury cut my playing days short. Enjoy Cricket which I also played for 18 years, moved to Australia in 2004. Now in Tasmania which is literally pretty cool, but it is a beautiful part of OZ

I am obviously ABs first then the Wallabies followed by the Irish then Scotland. Why Scotland you may ask? My dad’s parents were Scottish and mums parents Swedish.

Spot on Bourkos, 😊 👍

Seriously though it could happen depending on the group draw, and us having Razor and not Foster.

Thank you King Riggers. 😁

I like to live up to my whole name Riggers. 😊

Unfortunately for the ABs our forwards pack has lacked size and ball skills since 2015. Foster still does not know what game plan to employ, and what is his starting 15 which past coaches knew by now. NZ vs OZ final in 2027 would be awesome Riggers. 😊 👍

ANALYSIS: Are the NSW Waratahs better than the Queensland Reds?

It has been number of years since the Wallabies have had this much competition for places Riggers. As you say it might not be next year, but Gee! I see the Wallabies being like France and storming back to have everyone talking and worried. This is what we need as a sport, Aussie back and matching it against the best. 👍 🏉

You are too polite Nick 😛 like him some lost souls will never be found.

That is what I am enjoying seeing this season, as there are players pushing each other for the Wallabies jersey. Genuine competition which will only make the team stronger ready for the big one next season.

I agree as compared to last year Australia has good young 10 players coming through. The last thing you need is to throw them in too soon and blow their confidence, test Rugby is a totally different standard altogether. We have seen only last season what happens when you put that pressure on a young player, he certainly has genuine talent but he needs the right nurture for to be the best that can be.

So true Peter, the ABs players always say that they are caretakers of the jersey! You are there to become amongst the best to have worn the jersey. Wallabies players also had that mentality but not now, wether it is coaches or RA you would have a better idea than I do as I arrived here in 2004! I wonder if it is a combination of both?

Chooks breeding with pigeons, that would be interesting with the outcome. 😛

Brilliant JC, a big bow to you. Now what do I disagree with? Nothing mate you nailed it like a true tradesman. 😁 👍 🏉

Great article Tony, it is to great to get more of an understanding about him. His feet are firmly planted and is concentrating on SRP! But he does have the goal of playing for the Wallabies. Going up against BB will be a great test for him to gauge where he is at. I wish him well but he should not be rushed and have the pressure of the media and ex players to fast track him into wearing the Wallabies jersey. He needs to be mentally and physically ready for a major step up in intensity, let’s see how he and the Tahs go in the finals and then come back to the discussion.

I have definitely spotted it Nick, I secretly relayed it back to NZ. 😛

Great article as you laid this out brilliantly Tony. This last round will tell us a lot about which teams are finals ready, the Crusaders and Tahs are building nicely with the Brumbies looking good overall against NZ sides like the Tahs. The Blues seem to have not needed to hit top gear but I expect them to up the intensity and physicality for the finals.

Another terrific article, big appreciation Nick. It was obvious to me after the first two rounds how strong the Tahs squad looks with their bench providing genuine punch and keeping the intensity up. They have been brought close together as a playing by DC and Co, the class of coaches with top teams compared to the rest is glaringly obvious.

I agree totally UAP.. My issue is that I am a Kiwi and have a balanced view and support Australians growth in the game. He is so biased and provides only a one eyed views, he lives in Queensland but is anti Australian Rugby. I want and see the Rugby here on a positive path forward, his views are not like most Kiwis on the Roar. Plus my minimum suspension would be 8 weeks based on the deliberate act and no consideration for the players safety.
