Ah Swede, IMO,I reckon, the AB’s slipping to No 2 or 3, or what ever, will take a little pressure off them moving into the RWC. Like. everybody likes to knock off the “Tall Poppy”, thingy. See what happens. Cheers.

The Wrap: Normal order restored in Bledisloe Cup whitewash

Nice summary RT, & yep, the Black Fern’s Haka, was something, even with their Pukana, showed, that they were going to be up for it. Fully agree on ALB, as over the two match Bledisloe, he’s been IMO, our best back. Big Patrick? Didn’t he go well, as it possibly could be his best showing in the jersey. Loved his big hits. Regarding Bender, mate, I reckon, he’ll still be there, as he’s still a bloody good 15. Time will tell. Cheers.

Yep SBW, did play very well OB, but for me, I reckon ALB was possibly the AB’s best back of the series. Even on the losing side in Perth, he was excellent. Cheers.

Well with Jone’s known form Geoff, one would think he would keep his trap shut. Like sock in Jacinda’s mouth, was a bit off, as we all know with hm, it wouldn’t be a sock.

Excellent read Geoff, as congrats, go out to both the Black Fern’a & All Black’s on there meritorious victories.
Well, the scoreline didn’t help in my Pub sweepstake, as I had a 33-16 score, in the AB’s favour. How i came to that, was 33 years since the last win by the Wallabies at the Garden of Eden, & 16 years of the Wallabies not lifting the Bledisloe.
Well to the game, & with Kapa O Pango, as the Haka, it had the look of showing the Mana, then applying the Mahi. As with Richie’s ( McCaw) prediction, they were ready as a team. Even with the sending off of Dane Coles, it made no difference, as the pack was ticking over quite nicely. Big Patrick Tuipolou with his big hits, & doing the hard yards with Sam, whose new haircut, stood out as much as the work he was doing. Ardie??? WTF can one say,……..he’s an absolute PEST. But yeh, he was excellent, over the 80. The pack was very very good.
The backs were excellent, but even though they all played well, I still think, the back of the two match series was ALB. He played well again. Geez & we’ve still got the like of Crotty, Goodhue, plus a few others to show their cards, Well Geoff IMO, Bender will go to Japan, Squire is yet to make up his mind, as reports are he’s playing very well, & Shag just might take Josh Ioane, along as well. Evidently, he’s been doing very well at the squad training sessions, & it was interesting to see him during the AB’s warm up, pre game, on Saturday. Three first five’s? yeh it just might happen. Cheers.

So what does your crystal ball say Connor, or is that broken too?

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

HAHAHA Swede, nice one!!Lol. Well in a local pubs sweepstake, Iv’e gone for an AB win,(naturally).with a scoreline of 33 -16. Why that particular scoreline, mate? Well, it’s 33 years since the Wallaby has won at the ‘Garden of Eden’, & 16 years since they last, ‘ leased’ a loan on the Bledisloe. Lol.Cheers.

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

Show the Mana, & do the Mahi, is the way to go piru!

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

Must be pretty sad that Ken. Anyway, hows that leg coming along? lol.

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

Home to OZ Kev?? Ummm, I always thought that Bledisloe was a GG of NZ, & the cup was donated by him!! Strange that!!

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

Good morning Will, & oh mate, embrace the Indigenous culture, & take in the dreamtime!! Lol.

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

Hi RT, & rightly so, that you should be wearing nothing else but BLACK, mate. So envious, you actually being there, as I take it, you will be there for both games? Like the Black Fern’s did win well in Perth, I can imagine how well they’ll go on their home track.
Even with it being the 50th anniversary of that great music festival, Woodstock, I really don’t think that they will have the same crowd numbers as what they had there. ( 400,000 ), but I still reckon there will still be a capacity crowd for this return Bledisloe. Go The Blacks, & enjoy. Cheers.

Bugger them Brett, What about Bender?? lol.

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

Yeh Chook, & we’ve got NO fkn Bender!! FFS

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

Hah baz, C team.!

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

Hi Swede, IMO, I really don’t think Bender, has lost form, as we know, he’s been one of the better fullbacks in world rugby. So I rekon his playing out of position, winging it, hasn’t helped. Fullback is still his position,

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

Yep moa, as in looking at the squad, I really would have liked to see, Jackson Hemopo, given a go at blind side. He’s got that bit of mongrel, but as it is it looks like Shag will bring him off the bench at some stage. Be interesting.

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

WHAAAAAT NO BENDER ?????? Yep Brett, bit of a shock, but OK, it’s RWC year, & no doubt Shag’s is not suffering, from some disease, or something. In truth it a good tram, & I reckon that George Bridge does deserve a start. Like Reiko/s fire seems to virtually has extinguished. Seemingly with the result of last weekend, the hordes will emerge in the ‘Garden of Eden’, to watch those in the Dark jersey’s overcome those in the yellow jersey’s. Should be all on, but with the curtain raiser, with ourWahine’s, in the Black Fern’s, hopefully with some returning, should still be a one way street. We watched two thrashing last weekend, let’s see if one jersey can make it two. Show the Mana, do the Mahi, then it will happen.

Go the Black’s.

But the other game will no doubt see Rassie playing some fringe players, seeing he’s already won the Rugby Championship. Well done the Bokke.

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

Interesting read Brett, & as you say, one win doesn’t make the Wallaby RWC favourites. Yep, true, but as Iv’e been saying, for a while now, I consider, Rassie & his Bokke squad, as the one to beat.

In truth, it’ll be very interesting to see, who Shag, brings in, as no doubt there will be some changes, for what is forecast, In Auckland this weekend. Wet conditions, will possibly not see another high scoring test, due to these conditions. IMO, I would like to see Crotty back at second five, with ALB outside him. Not sure on how bad Goodhue’s injury is, but if he’s available, he too would have to be considered. Perhaps the controversial Blind Side, might see the return of Liam Squire, as from reports, he played the house down, for his province last weekend. Well his form during Super Rugby, certainly, wasn’t anything to write home about, but if he’s returned to the form we know he can play, then bring him on. I do think that Shag will make the necessary. changes, but I can’t see him going overboard. Might even see big Karl back.
They have a record to uphold at Eden Park, as the Wallaby, haven’t won there in 33 years, & even the Bledisloe is now in it’s 16th year of defending. So bring it on, With a good Kiwi welcome to the ‘Garden of Eden’. Show the Mana, AB’s.

What we know after the Wallabies' stunning Bledisloe 1 win

Pretty right there sheek, as the Yanks, have never ever won a major conflict, without the assistance of the allies. We have done the hard yards, & they have come in virtually when the job is done, but their help, in providing the necessary equipment, went a long way.

Sorry that you have trouble understanding, Agent. Like thick as!!!

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Obviously you don’t have many friends, associates, etc in & around Europe as I, as in conversing with them, they too, have an not tp pleasant opinion about French ref’s including a certain Pom. I wouldn’t even say to much about my fellow Irish associates, who, with some, are really heavy involved with the game.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

So Swede shall we just wait till the outcome of this, as I reckon it’s a duty of care situation. That’s why these rulings were put in place, & with the Ref in the middle judicating & right there with the action, I’m sure he would know, or have a pretty good understanding, before any Doctor running on, could assess the situation.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Bottom line Geoff, it is after all a Duty of Care situation

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Got it wrong Swede mate, as the Ref has a ‘ duty of care’! Have you ever heard of it?. In other words, It’s the ref that calls the shots, as to when a player goes down injured, or seriously injured, he doesn’t let play carry on, he stops the game to, attend too, or call help on to assist in the problems. in these HIA decisions, recommending the doctor come on, or sending players, under the stand, It still comes under ‘duty of care’, in which World Rugby, has made those in control responsible, for those under their jurisdiction. It’s common sense.
