I simply love sport. I spent 15 years umpiring cricket. In my younger days I played tennis, cricket and rugby. Yep I agree, most quite badly! I am very fond of horse racing and have previously been in a syndicate that owned dogs and horses. I know the highs and lows of owning these animals! I have a batting average of 2 but a bowling average of less than 18. I made the transition from pacey winger (100m in under 15secs) to flanker. Oh well! I have lived and worked in quite a few countries thanks to my work commitments but love Australia!

So is that a coaching thing? or a desire to play a certain way? All praise for Quade but he could be a little erratic at times…especially his defence.

Why is it ALWAYS cup cakes??

Club or country: Balancing each side's needs at the selection table

Thanks Daniel. We seem to have an uneven distribution of players in various positions across all the SRA teams. If we were to move to a more central organisation similar to NZ for example, then the opportunity to redistribute talent to franchises where their services were required might be a good thing. So as you mentioned one franchise has three 10s, one basically none. If it really was a matter of player development feeding potentially into selection of the best possible team to represent the country then this central idea should be considered.

No mate it didn’t. I will report back shortly about all the pub testing that I have done for you. Like I said the other day this is serious work!

Dack em hey? I was at a school boys match a while ago…one of the opposition flanker casually put his hand in the pocket of the opposing line out jumper…got the timing perfectly…the lad in question was hoisted high in the sky past his shorts. Tackle in the breeze…he had no underpants on apparently. oh well…oh yeah..
it was on half way more or less right in front of the (relatively small) stand.

Finger on the pulse like normal Daniel!

Well…if roughly 49%of any given population of humans are male, and depending on where but say 5% of those males are left handed, and of those less than 1% are rugby players, then the statistics clearly show that there are a helluva lot of people who really are interested in other things. That’s the funny thing about statistics…you can twist them to show more or less what you want.

Sorry Australia, the other two nations will supercharge southern hemisphere rugby

Well it took me a few paragraphs to work out the pen pun thing. But anyway…looks like a relatively easy round to pick. Sure thing: you gentlemen will find more nonsense to write next week!

Pardon mersieur une dumb Australien. Non par les vous Francias. Bloody good read mate. Let’s hope most of it comes true?!

why not mix it up now and then? Start too at 8…pack scrums etc as you see fit. he clearly loves to run with ball in hand…maybe not against the kiwis though!

Well Nicholas it’s not quite Ginger Baker versus a drum machine, but it’s near to it. I would imagine that both gentlemen are in the frame for selection…and that Mr Rennie has a few different game plans in the clipboard. Thanks once again for expanding my knowledge of our great game!

Cool ideas there hombre. Some of your guys named are no brainers…other are more speculative. But love the concept!
