Cool. Thanks man

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

Thanks BeeMc. Safe to assume?
– RA NZR together will have more specific and substantial discussions
– with the new teams after the separate approvals?
…or not?

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

Thanks HaaaaazzàaaaaâāĂÅąąaaaaaaa

Id like to see some younger guys who can change things up a bit. Starting with Filipino wonder boy Marcus Smith

I hope WG does a much better job than the mess he left at Waikato.

The Lions have a selection headache

yes, he was big for the Reds also until he left

The Wrap: Rugby’s devil is in the detail

Thanks GP
– I guess since the sea levels are rising, better to base in NZ that the Islands?
– TMOs are taking ova. More accurately, cameras and AI will take ova. Including / especially offsides
– Liam Wright is hardly wrong. And the Ref knows it
– Yes, Perrett could have made a diff with the advantage play. Shes just doing her job. Something that Horton should have done!
– Izzy is missed by some. Watching the other Queenslander Izy (Parese) more fun though, isnt it?

The Wrap: Rugby’s devil is in the detail

Thanks Nick it is only but one game:
: but good to see Jordan bounce back.
– I think he deserved the criticisms of recent games namely wild passes. And disrespecting possession
-:seemingly he was expecting game busting performances as what he did the in his pioneering season
Looking forward to see how he fares in the next match:
– and where he will be positioned
– I think it is a safe bet he will be at the same position again

Why Jordan Petaia can be a better rugby player than Israel Folau

Yes. Conversely if they had someone like Poey on their side I think the Brumbies would have had a more comfortable second half

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

Thanks BeeMc.
It has been very close but there is something about the Brumbies eight finishers which does not allow them to actually finish off the job. I think the lack of experience, seniority from the backs and backrow is instrumental in this. Especially when compared to guys like JOC. Even Bryce H

Waratahs screwed up their recruitment and succession planning of players. Wants to fix that I think there will be more than ok

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

Thanks GP. Another good weekend. Another good wrap. And no aBJ and other dinosaurs:
– Toomua like Jordan P in earlier games. Not playing to his strengths
– Rebels rushing too quickly to change. Brums took a couple sessions to evolve
Brums Reds. Good chess match:
– Reds were defeated in contact areas in 1H
– Brums expected to do the same for the remainder
– Instead the Reds kicked over their heads. Brums never realised nor adjusted especially the try setup and scored by Jordan P
Interesting to see NZ teams starting to even out. Wondering how they still fare vs Aus. Or should I say vice versa

The Wrap: The Reds ride the bumps all the way to Super Rugby grand final

Im with you, MrChook!

Super Rugby tipping Week 8: Preview round

Thanks guys. Im with Digs!

Super Rugby tipping Week 8: Preview round

Thanks Nick! Nicely spotted
– Hamish is JOCs minimee
– Jim McKay is awesome
– the missing element in the Reds

I hope we keep him there a long time

Why picking the best players does not always make the best team

Thanks BeeMc. All about the coaches:
– At all levels. Schools to internationals.
– One day Aus will have fill out the ranks again, not having to rely on overseas coaching talent.
– Somewhat hit and miss currently imo

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

Thanks GP. Trans Tasman is inevitable. But hopefully this year!

Yes and imo. Its all about coaches. We are still too player oriented

The Wrap: Super Rugby AU and Aotearoa anxiously hovering on the bubble

Laurie had a stint earlier, as HC. But its apparent hes limited to preparing the pack, and other specific coaching functions

Not just making up the numbers: The rise and rise of Len Ikitau

Thanks gents. Hard to argue with the panel. Except
– I think Blues have lost thier attacking mojo
– Rebs Rebs is not a foregone conclusion

Super Rugby tipping week 7: Sacked coach watch

Thanks a Nick. Well laid out. They are a well prepared organisation. Holistic:
– Except the front row disaster haha
– But seriously I think they have learnt from it (painfully)

What I am interested to know is what is their succession and contingency planning beyond the tenure of their current head coach

Not just making up the numbers: The rise and rise of Len Ikitau

Good one guys. You never know. It may be real tomorrow!

BREAKING: Waratahs sack interim head coaches for "failing to meet on-field expectations"

Im generally quite luck with chook raffles and meat trays. Sometimes wondered why. Mostly I dont!

aBJ is good with meat I believe

The Wrap: Wallabies squad unveiling a step forward and a step backward

Thanks BeeMc:
– Though maybe we’ve seen it all before perhaps with the aftermath of a sacked coach, I’m keen to see what the Tahs will deliver this week
– Force with key injuries of the vets, the bye will benefit them
– Rebs played well last round, but fell asleep at the wheel in the last stanza. Should be a great game on Sat, esp the front row

All downhill from here: The Super Rugby AU run home

I prefer mangoes myself 😁

The Wrap: Wallabies squad unveiling a step forward and a step backward

haha. I think Kiwis can solve a lot of problems. Same as folks from other places

But not necessarily the only solution 🙂

yes mate. CEOs come and go yes:
– But this is different. This is a blow south of the guts using a knee
– Hore and his action has to be recognised and properly treated

ie Agree the board has to go for:
– its lack of wisdom and going for a Kiwi quick-fix
– The new mob needs to understand
– choosing a Kiwi is not always the right default answer

Thanks Adsa. Ive been waiting for someone to raise this for a good part of the year

Nowadays whilst I generally like the Blues coach and players. I have ZERO respect for their administration

Thanks GP:
– Not clear about the CVC investment structure except its 14% stake and cash payout to each member around GBP50M. Regarding their role, operating plan, and more importantly exit strategy etc would like to know more
– imo Penney’s days were numbered, the moment his CEO left the Tahs only days after the new coach was announced. Whilst the board is a big part of the problem, Andrew Hore’s impact is also indelible
– Hore, as i understand it, had the keys to the turnaround
– Its like marrying a spouse who has a child. Then then spouse runs off.
A. Hore indeed
