For the wallabies would you play Kerevi at 12? Personally I would with Hunt at 13.

Why not trial Hunt at 13 now in preparation?

There's a lot to like about the Waratahs, but the bad elements are still bad

Well they are two separate arguments aren’t they.

Causation and correlation…

Time for administrators to wake up on failing Super Rugby: Wessels

It could also have something to do with fox having an insipid commentary team too.

There is nothing wrong with the conference system. It’s just the teams that are awarded finals/home play offs.

NBA, NFL, Mitre 10, EPL etc all have successfull conferences

How Fox Sports has been cheating itself and rugby fans

I agree I want to see attack/defence formations, how players are sucked in to create overlaps, work that goes in off the ball, to be able to watch certain players work rate and how they operate over the course of a game.

Constant close ups with out greater context would more than likely encourage me to switch to another provider.

Is it just me or are the Sharks trialling some players in new positions?

But if I’ve already lost my freedom I can’t afford to lose my sense of humour too…

By dumping Larkham, the Wallabies have been Cheika-mated

That’s true but given the damage being done to his coaching credentials by staying I’d argue that he would have been better off leaving to coach in Europe or the UK and locking in some wins and or results.

Possibly still on a higher salary too.

Surely if over the course of 3 years he couldn’t find another job that wasn’t going to irreversibly ruin his coaching reputation/credentials then that should set alarm bells off too.

I imagine that it’s more to do with the fact that there is no kiwi site like this to allow robust rugby discussion (to the best of my knowledge).

You could see it as a mark of respect that kiwis enjoy coming to an Australian site to discuss rugby.

By the way SMI this isn’t a dig at you. I enjoy reading your comments and still appreciate some good tongue I cheek humour.

Thanks Daniel,

Sounds like a much better system of ranking.

Thanks for the article too.

Super Rugby 2019 preview series: Chiefs

Why does he only have to be compared to local coaches. Surely he should be compared to all international (or willing) coaches globally if he is applying for an international gig?!

Minor point but if they are 4th in NZ then best they can hope for is 6th overall (taking into account that the top three positions are filled by each of the conference leaders)

I like the idea but I can’t see any legitimacy in clubs pooling players. If you are playing in one clubs colours for that clubs some prestige then you can’t expect to legitimately borrow other players yet retain all the glory. Likewise why would another club risk their investment (players) on your behalf

Making the World Super Rugby Championship a reality

I can’t disagree with anything there

2019: The battle for the soul of Pasifika rugby

Hi Sheek,
I enjoy reading your comments and agree with the premise of your comment above, however I disagree with you regarding the amount of power fans have. Especially in the Australian market.

With rugby in the precarious situation it’s in here there is no room to lose fans. By the time the “fan power” is realised the game would have lost the sponsorship and broadcasting revenue to pay players. With no income the NH would happily accept SH players and Australian rugby would be lost to the fans altogether.
