They have a good squad and some great new additions. It just depends on how quickly they can gel this season.

How do the Super Rugby AU squads stack up?

Great series of articles Harry. Thanks very much. Looking forward to Retallick, O’Connell and Vickerman. 😁
Ireland’s James Ryan has played some decent matches in recent years too. 2018 vs the ABs comes to mind.

How masterful was Itoje's masterpiece? The semi-final win over New Zealand

Nothing like a wobble board to strike fear into your opponents

The quick questions: The Tri Nations are alive and well

I would like to see Sean Maloney with someone like Lynagh. High energy with mixed with the measured opinion. Then bring in an actual expert on rulings- an ex referee- like George Ayoub to explain decisions. Now we are on free to air- people will need the clarification.

How about a new commentary team to go with a new TV deal?

Will the change to ch9/Stan influence current international broadcast partners in any way?

The Wrap: A great new broadcast deal for rugby? Depends on who’s telling the story

I was going to mention that some of the crusaders loose forwards could be a solution.

Im sure a few Queenslanders will help refresh your memory on Wednesday.

Tedesco "blocked out" last Origin loss at Suncorp

Very happy for Argentinian rugby and their supporters. The way they played was very much like the ‘07 side that placed third in the RWC that year. Very abrasive, physical forwards on the back of an excellent defence, and superb kicking game. It’s hard to believe Chocobares was on debut. But this was an excellent team effort. Led magnificently by Matera and Sanchez.

Pumas beat All Blacks for the first time

Great news.

Trans-Tasman Super Rugby competition confirmed for 2021

Combination with Wilson too. And McReight. 😁

An advantage of Hodge at 10 is that he will defend in the line. Simplifies our backline defence.
Swinton and Hooper are a club combo and know each others games. Wilson adds to that.
Simmons adds value at the line out.
I think 10 man rugby looks to be the first half game plan, plenty of box kicks off 9, and Hodges boot in play. Then change it up with some mobility off the bench later in the match.

👍

Welcome competition in the rugby broadcast rights race - and a farewell, for now…

I’m surprised Jacko hasn’t blown this thread up.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

I can’t recall any Australian infringing 😛

Making tackles and not dropping the ball might have helped too

When the pace of the game suits the ABs they fly in from everywhere causing the ref to suffer from sensory overload which then cripples their decision making 😂
Coles was doing plenty as well. I don’t begrudge the ABs for playing this way, I just wish our team would get into the contest and show some cunning themselves.
Very insightful article Nic, cheers.

I’m just a nobody in a bunch of nobodies.

I feel like this decision has been made because of the expected spike in Covid as winter arrives in the Nth hemi, and players not wanting to be on the other side of the globe if that happens with their families back in Europe.

Well. I for one am glad your here watching over everyone. You would be somebodies hero, somewhere, I’m sure of it. 😊

Do you have any empathy for the SA position? Plenty of vitriol against them in some of these threads.

Am I being grammar checked or fact checked? Or has what I have said bewildered you and your response confused me? 😂

They are taking advantage of a situation that was not in their favour. Their preparation leading into the tournament was not the greatest as the Covid outbreak in their country slowed start of domestic comp. Are there conflicting messages from the union and the players? They seem to be united on this one

Not unexpected. Covid and player welfare all valid reasons for not coming. Relations between the Sanzaar nations have not been great.

I’d say that is exactly why Coles has been picked
