Haha no unfortunately, hence why they need a new, long term coach who is ready to develop a winning culture and build on their strong squad. Rob Penney anyone…

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

He’s a cheeky nugget for sure wax, I think the Rebs and force are capable of they’ve play to their potential but I worry for the tahs

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Fair enough Jacko, was going off a web article they quoted him at ‘should’.

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Hi Nick, a good article as usual. I’m keen to hear your educated opinion on how well you think all 5 Australian sides will fair in the trans Tasman competition? Especially in light of tony brown coming out and saying he thinks the landers should win all 5 games. Maybe this is a question for the Friday column or another article soon but am interested in what you think.

I was thinking that too, wouldn’t want one side cannibalising the other teams and making players ineligible for international selection.

The Wrap: Rugby’s devil is in the detail

I reckon pasitoa would look good wherever he went! His development at the brums will be assured though. I think twiggy should target Isaac Lucas and hockings alongside rodda.

Reds-Brumbies has become 'the' modern-day Australian rugby rivalry

Be careful, I would not say that…have you seen the young players in their system they have barely even exposed to higher levels yet? Pollard, Pasitoa, Hooper (Tom) etc.

Yep I’m not surprised Aus has a high number, but a lot of those born overseas are immigrating here with family at a young age and living here. No Australia isn’t blameless but we have large multicultural communities and don’t shop to the same extent. Scotland is pretty bad though, didn’t realise how high it was.

Brad Thorn says the 'Lomu rule' applies to Jordan Petaia

I think he’s generally got a poker face but agreed, he looked happy last night after the game.

Mate I love the optimism! If you’re a soothsayer and our tahs pull that off then I won’t ever have to work again.

Force head home with Super Rugby finals in sight

I think lance and miotti then daylight and then jake. Miotti I thought was good in what he’s shown and has a combo with Cubelli.

Force head home with Super Rugby finals in sight

Yes the Tahs played better vs the Brumbies but at home the Force need to close it out and I think this win will have been a big boost. If Sampson runs the same lineup, injuries permitting, then I think they will be tough to beat for the tahs. I share your frustrations with the Force though, I think they need a new long term coach to develop the team into the side they should be, as they have so much potential. Sampson hasn’t seemed to improve them.

Force head home with Super Rugby finals in sight

It’s setup well for some good rugby hopefully. Force at home should beat the tahs and the Reds will be a huge game I imagine. Rebels away to tahs could be interesting and they’ve got a huge match vs brumbies.

A competition of some description involving the top Japanese division and TT would be nice, especially if the overseas players could then be selected for the Wallabies. I liked the idea of a Champions League format where the best two teams of Aus, NZ and Japan faced off.

Quade Cooper says Aussie rugby should go to Japan

He’d be well off to go to the Brumbies I reckon if so, would develop well there into something closer to a test player.

Wallabies get major boost as key second-rower returns to Australia

I’d have the youngsters ahead of Ned! If we got Arnold/Skelton back then things would be looking great. Add to that Uru and that’s exciting for the future.

Bang on Paulo, and I really didn’t agree with the idea Aus and NZ are shopping players like in Europe. As you’ve rightly said it’s an illusion. We both have large PI communities here and a lot of mixing between these communities across Aus, NZ and the islands so the notion we’re culpable like some of the home nations or France is ridiculous.

They ruined that oval Geoff! Maybe that was the straw that broke the camel’s back for ol’ Malo

Who’d be a coach? The endless pursuit of the perfect game

I have a soft spot for him but agree, his teams are consistently inconsistent. I like the coaching staff at the Rebs but think a new top dog is needed to crown it as the talent is there, and a lot of young guys too, so longer term they are already setting themselves up.

I think kick just has to be behind the 50 so kind of like the old 22 rule.

The one and only who posted a question to Nick asking why mauls and rucks aren’t a free for all as it would “speed the game up”…

Who’d be a coach? The endless pursuit of the perfect game

Agree Brett, totally agree. I am going out on a limb here and aim to say this with full respect to him but my fear is JP is suffering still from the tragedy of last year and I have suspected that for a while. As I am a similar age myself I can’t even imagine the pain he must have suffered let alone in a Covid environment and on top of that a professional sports setting where he would barely be getting a break, especially in the context of the shortened offseason. I hope BT and the Reds are providing all the support they can muster for him because he’s a precious talent and beyond that a young man with the world truly at his feet.

AAA and Sio back for the Reds game, just in time for the Brums

Who’d be a coach? The endless pursuit of the perfect game

Yep, NZR and RA both fired plenty of shots last year publicly to muscle in on what they wanted, classic negotiating tactics. Things seem to have mellowed this year and so hopefully work is being done behind the scenes instead – where it should be occurring.
