Thanka Nick. Cant rely on gameplan around one player. Also QC dropped a lot of kicking points

How the Wallabies overcame excessive blockages in Oita

Same back at you brother!

‘False narrative’: The BS construct that does my head in about the Wallabies’ winning run

You’re my inspiration

‘False narrative’: The BS construct that does my head in about the Wallabies’ winning run

Thanks BeeMc. This is your fifth great article in a row in a non-leap year that coincides with Chinese year of a herbivorous animal

‘False narrative’: The BS construct that does my head in about the Wallabies’ winning run

Cheers GP. Great white hope should be great white nope 😁

The Wrap: Wallabies shake off the rust while All Blacks raise the ton

Thanks GP:
– Aussie rust? Im afraid it was there since TRC esp against Pumas
– WB still struggles in fast paced games and BD
– Richie Mo. The man is in control

PE to turnaround a sport? Is there precedence for that?

Not so confident in the next few WB matches:
– But as the opposing teams are also rebuilding. Anything can happen
– NH club players have certainly embraced lightning fast play this year

The Wrap: Wallabies shake off the rust while All Blacks raise the ton

Thanks BeeMc:
– It’s also a good litmus of how well the NH are doing
– their clubs look very good, playing fast Rugby

'A chance to change perception': Successful spring tour would mean more than usual for Wallabies

Thanks HaaAaaaaaazzzzzzzaaaaa

Rassie did a razzie
Now he lost to lads from Tazzie

He could lose his job if found guilty as a jiver
But he might perfect for the
team of divers

The case for and against Erasmus, and the men charged with protecting rugby’s reputation

Look forward to seeing more GP. same as per previous managers. Yes grassroots is state responsibility. Just as SR franchise. The different is in the latter, RA has more clearly articulated plans.

The Wrap: With the bushfires now out, can Andy Marinos regenerate Australian rugby?

Thanks GP. Nice to see that grassroots were discussed. Though it’s still totally unclear what the plan is. Same for developing world class coaches

The Wrap: With the bushfires now out, can Andy Marinos regenerate Australian rugby?

Yes. Very influential. to their losses. And wins

The Thursday rugby two-up: Standout players of TRC

Thanks Gents. It was a thrilling season except for the matches involving Argentina. They need a shakeup. Fix their scrums. Or maybe they just need a home game, or three:
1. AB: I couldn’t pick anyone really. They are like the Borg from star trek
2. Boks: Faf. Boks lives and dies on him and his hair dye. Forward: Lood
3. Julian Slipper Montoya. More metres than other backs. His team scrum is not good though (ie total rubbish) Back: Carreras I think
4. Nella. Devastating on many fronts. Backs: Samu K

The Thursday rugby two-up: Standout players of TRC

That’s a nice treatise thanks Nick. Nella is good value. And his best may yet to be.

The end scrums in G1 v Boks will annoy and upset South African fans for a long long long time.
This is testament of his competency.

That’s only if he maintains consistency. Similar to what’s hoped for QC place kicking

Is Taniela Tupou top of the props?

Thanks BeeMc. This new comp may be interesting. Also… Maybe not!

Club World Cup a decent idea on paper, but no chance of finding room in the calendar

Thanks GP. When it comes to the great sports, the seemingly undeniable rule for them is:
– time, space, and money bends towards franchise / club power; not national teams
– Not a good thing for the future of NZ in the long-term

The Wrap: Why Sam Cane and Kieran Read are poles apart and why it matters

Thanks Nick. i think the stability in WBs, come from maturity:
– which in turns comes from following SAs policy of picking players from around thre world
– As opposed to following the NZ system of choosing home-based players
.
RARA started to use some of their brains. Not sure if they plan on using the rest of it.

How the Wallabies are building cohesion towards 2023

Thanks BeeMc. Kellaway looking good. Just like the Boks:
– The diff with the WBs is the increased number of overseas players
– A good example if why copy/paste of the NZ model does not work in Australia

Kellaway’s bolt from nowhere highlights Wallabies sudden rebirth

Thanks GP. A happy ending is a good way to help forget unpleasant memories of early season blues. Empty stadiums, Bledisloe massacre.

Look forward to the NH matches. For various reasons for NH and SH teams

The Wrap: Rugby Championship rediscovers its DNA and ends with a thriller

Boks were not v gentle.
Arika will testify

Belief, brutal strength, bloody-mindedness: The Boks are bloody back, baby!

Thanks HaaazZZZaaaaaAAA.
Was a good result. Boks also used their brains.

Belief, brutal strength, bloody-mindedness: The Boks are bloody back, baby!

Thanks Hazaaaaaa. Jake White, as a comparison, was a good coach:
– He stripped back a team to their best possible base play
– The diff is JW made sure the strip was not just a short tease
– DR / nine neuter need to add to the Bok toolkit
– The skill and will is there. turn it on COACHES!!!

SA View: Heartbreak in the 100th as Boks 'set the table, kill the calf and forget to eat'

Thanks GP. Well put. I thought it was the ABs who played off character last weekend. Somehow they survived it!

The Wrap: Tense, gripping clash of styles falls the All Blacks' way

Thanks BeeMc:
– I see your point about the many dawns
– At first the WBs, were awake and scored a couple of tries
– the fall asleep for most of remaining game
– then woke up to score another
– then right back to sleep / brain-dead

They deserve each other

The Thursday rugby two-up: Quick falls and rough landings

Were the letters F, C, K, U used. Or even just two letters F, U?
.
would have been an interesting way to respond to their opponents, the refs. Or even some of the fans!
