True sheek, but Jones was the one that was instrumental in such a talent for Australian rugby, retiring so soon, as said by brother Glenn. When he arrived at the Tigers with his blonde, Brian, at toe, his reputation was well known by then, thus resulting at his tenure, not being that long. My good mate, the North Ryde dustman, Olsen, told us many a story, of his pathetic tenure, & most of it, wasn’t good. Hence after that, he started his talk back garbage radio show.

Yep stillmissit, but the big hurdle is that the NZRFU, has Foster signed up till the next RWC. More stupidity by them, as it’s so obvious they are not doing their jobs thoroughly.

sheek, TBH, Jones was never a good coach, but he was a great motivator. That’s all he had, as that squad he toured the BI, as coach with was a team that was virtually put in place by Bob Dwyer. Remember him? A very good coach. Apart from that you have your opinion on the matter, which you are entitled too, but I’m basing mine, on what came out of Glenn’s mouth. Jones was known as a nit picker, as far as the coaching part was, & as what was told to me on his arrival at the Tiger’s with his little boy ‘Brian’ tagging along. He actually tried the same thing with our old mate Olsen, as he too was known as not a good trainer, in which he freely admits, but in his case, that proved the wrong thing to do, as the Maori side of Olsen came out. As most anybody knew, when Olsen pulled on that black jersey, he was a far different kettle of fish. Mind you, Jones did go to the Tigers with a reputation.

sheek, I got it from the horse’s mouth virtually, talking with brother Glenn on a couple of occasions, & he acknowledged what I said. It wasn’t an assumption, it was fact. As for Jones, we all know how he went, when transferring codes to go to Rozelle, as I knew a very good ‘ dustman ‘, & a very good socialising Bro, that filled us all in with his adventures there. As it was all of the Ella brothers were excellent, on the paddock, with your so called coward, being the only player ever to score tries, in every test on a particular ‘ Grand Slam’.

Yeh stillmissit, Ted Henry!! But Bro, if you care to look at the overall for & against in the Wallaby v AB’s, it doesn’t look to good for you fellas, but you should be pretty confident this year against the AB’s with this utter fool Foster running the show for the AB’s. Rennie is a quality coach.

True Peter, as that being the only series, the best of four nations, Lion’s, have ever won in Aotearoa.

Obviously, sheek, you’ve never spoken with any of the Ella’s, regarding his retirement? Try it sometime mate, I do think the story you do get will change your opinion. Like, don’t you think, it may have been that toilet frequenting coach, that was the reason?

Who should coach my favourite All Blacks team?

Considering his time there, it wasn’t bad either, Peter, & as a player, he was pretty reliable. Last time I saw him play for the AB’s was at Eden Park against the 71 Lion’s, in which Piney was the captain in his last game for the AB’s.

Yeh Madkiwi, at that time Otago, had the best back three in the country, in Josh Kronfield, Jamie Joseph & Aaron Pene. Pity Aaron went off shore pre the 95 RWC, as his ‘ benchwarmer ‘ Zinny, stepped up.

Who should coach my favourite All Blacks team?

Well Mains commitment towards his country & the game, was really proven Peter, when he went back to the Republic, after the 95 RWC, at his own expense, to gain the proof he needed, for what actually happened. Can you say the same of any coach, either before or since that has shown that sort of dedication? Like he’d already passed the NZ coaching job onto, that other bloke, mate.

Who should coach my favourite All Blacks team?

Your pretty spot on Madkiwi, as even knowing Mains at school in Dunedin, he was always a perfectionist, in most things he set out to do. His dedication, showed out early in his career, as he would spend hours upon hours, even after training, working on his goal kicking. I’ve never rated Hart, as i’ve always considered him another whinger. Actually there is another bloke that came out of Auckland, that school teacher bloke, Ted. He was very good, but, it’s really if we look at it, there has been some good one’s come out of Canterbury, with a few dud’s as well. Even the current Saders coach Razor deserves higher honours ATM.

Good advice piru, as sadly I was never what one would call a good ref, in the few games I had control of. But yeh, one doesn’t realise, what one has to do, when out there.

The Roar Rugby Project Part 8: There is no game without a referee

Well seeing the Russian girls stopped the winning run, these sort of results can be expected during these CoviD times. The World Series, both women’s & men’s are both with out most of the quality teams that play in this annual series, due to this. There will, I’m sure be better times ahead, once this pandemic, is over or fully under control.

Aussie women's sevens reach Spain semis, set record win streak

Well Bro we are all entitled to an opinion, as IMO, & speaking to a legend, in person, Fred Allen would virtually eat them all. Another I had in high regard was the school teacher, Ted, as his record was an excellent one.

Who should coach my favourite All Blacks team?

Well Peter, I do agree with the ‘ Needle’ as possibly the best we’ve had. From memory, I’m pretty sure, he was the one that told Chris Laidlaw that he’d never score a try between the posts. When questioned, his reply was ‘ Your head is too bloody big’!! Well Laidlaw was inclined to be that way, even at school. I did actually speak with Piney, on the best he was under, & he even back then, said Fred Allen. As it was, we’d all had a few, by then. I’m surprised that Hart even got a mention, as IMO, Laurie Mains was a far better coach. During, Mains’s time there all we heard was constant whinging from Hart, who IMO, was nowhere near as good. It must be remembered, that it was Mains that virtually, made history in the way the ‘ Big Fella’ Jonah, came to the fore. He actually told Jonah, not knowing of his secretly kept, sickness, that he would not be going to the RWC of 95, unless he improved his fitness levels. Well we all know now, as the rest is rugby history.

Well sadly in these reduced tournaments due to the pandemic, being without the the world champs the Black Fern’s 7 the vastly improved Fiji, we are really not viewing the full complement in the World Series of Seven’s. But yes, it’s great to see the Russian girls get up, as they are another team, that has been improving over the years.

Pain in Spain for Aussie women's sevens

Yeh Twiggy on the financial side, but I’m referring to the growth i’ve seen over the last 10 to 15 years, that has been happening, especially at club level, that some of my whanau are involved in.

Why Super Rugby is broken and how Australia must shift the focus to save domestic game

But Ken, the game in WA, is going forward, as iv’e seen. Possibly with the greater influx of Kiwi’s & Saffa’s being involved over there.

Why Super Rugby is broken and how Australia must shift the focus to save domestic game

Well Ken, you could try & do something about, as I did in the 80’s & 90’s by joining up, with a reputable rugby union, such as the Subbies, who do from time to time, mix with their ‘ big brother ‘ unions. The big point is, trying to get these established ckheads already there, to actually do something. Nothing has changed, evidently, since I was there, as I still do hear from mates in the know. I was there on a voluntary basis, for a few years. What is still in place, is these particular unions, do still partake in their expensive receptions, harbour cruises, & dinning out at the best hotels in Sydney. All virtually at the players expense, like their ‘ subs’. The thing that was big for me in my time, was the promotion, of the game, in the public schooling, the arranging of taking the game out west, into what is known as ‘ League ‘ territory. plus many other issues, that certain people didn’t want to know about.

Why Super Rugby is broken and how Australia must shift the focus to save domestic game

Yeh Bro, the old club attitude, instead of true international competition. Even that old fella David Tua, would whip the lot of them. Well we all know that it was his lack of reach that cost him against Lennox Lewis, for the World title.

'He's a w---er': Sonny Bill Williams vs. Barry Hall fight locked in, leaving Gallen in the cold

True Bro, but it’s an overall farce, as both Gallen & Hall, have beat, sfa, so to say. If they think they’re that good, why don’t they accept off shore challenges of note? They’ve got no titles, nothing.

'He's a w---er': Sonny Bill Williams vs. Barry Hall fight locked in, leaving Gallen in the cold

Why not Joseph Parker, as David Tua, is well retired now. IMO, Tua would still beat either of these clowns, & with Parker, it would only be a sparring session.

'He's a w---er': Sonny Bill Williams vs. Barry Hall fight locked in, leaving Gallen in the cold

Well SBW is also training with Tyson Fury’s great mate, Joseph Parker who does actually still hold his part of the World Heavyweight titles. Along with that have either Hall or Gallen ever held a national title, as has SBW ?

'He's a w---er': Sonny Bill Williams vs. Barry Hall fight locked in, leaving Gallen in the cold

The fact is, really that both Hall & Gallen have never held a Australian Heavyweight title, whereas SBW, at one time, held the NZ Heavyweight Title, until a ‘ past his prime’ David Tua challenged him. SBW turned him down, until Joseph Parker, ( who ATM does hold part of the heavyweight titles along with Tyson Fury ) challenged him, so Parker was virtually ‘ gifted’ the NZ title when SBW refused the challenge. Then again Aotearoa, has had a couple of world heavyweight Champs, starting back in the late, 1800’s with Bob Fitzsimmons.

'He's a w---er': Sonny Bill Williams vs. Barry Hall fight locked in, leaving Gallen in the cold

Well Jacko. SBW was at one time the NZ Heavyweight Champ, until he turned down Tua, & then later Parker, who he virtually succumbed the title too. So what titles have Hall & Gallen, for that fact ever held??? None to my knowledge. Even the fact, that Australia have never had a world Heavyweight champ.
