Yes I don’t know exactly what his true impact has been.

Have seen good things coming out of ROG and the camp but in terms of attacking rugby Oz style it would be a huge leap of faith, but not a bad idea to be in some role. Oz need external ideas.

ROG and roll: Why the Wallabies need O’Gara

Only thing Im worried about is whether to take RT’s 13.5 for the win ????
Saders side looks ominous so a lot on Plummers shoulders. Id like to see more of Aumua and Sotutu off the bench and getting more minutes.
Just feels like the sort of match Blues might get up and surprise all from under the radar…or that could just be the usual wishful thinking.

Super Rugby Round 15: Time for some cream

Yes most of their squad is tied to NH rugby, like most PI sides. Oz and Japan have a few.

League and union cannot afford an all-out Pacific code war

At least rugby players are doing those things.What has AFL, football and ice hockey got to do with rugby?

Nufg thats what.

Been to Tasmania have you? I have. What are most people there like then?

And you need to not try at all. Underpinning your entire reason for being on this site is fundamentally to tell others what they should or should not be playing or watching. For the strangest reasons. Who does that?

This is a RUGBY site pal. No room for footballet, ice hocky, NFL or any other minority sports. Off the stage please. Next.

And how would you know chief? Pkayed soccer in oz have you.

Im afraid the Swede, famous for telling folks things he knows zero about…has regressed. Its his world view that matters. AFL, pack up, the Swede has spoken. 🙂

Wow, sweden vs finland in ice hockey. Soccer on wheels and ice. Thats really sonething kiwis and ozzies care a lot about. Give me state of origin anytime pal.

Cos soccers crap thats why. Who are you to preach what Aussies should play? Just cos youre not Australian, ozzies should not play AFL?
You keep getting on this bike telling people they shouldnt be doing things you know absolutely nothing about.

Well if you ask any coach in the world if they could choose whether Folau plays in a World Cup final against them they would all say the same thing. And it wouldn’t be ‘yes’
And it’s easy saying it now with nothing much going on but coming up to a World Cup knockout when the wallabies have caused their fans heartaches, headaches and shaky knees in pool play and everyone’s teetering on the edge going into a knockout, Insure know what the fans will say on Folau being in the side…’f……… yeah!’

The Wallabies are a better team without Israel Folau

Well, when he finally gets to play there. Can’t claim to be a great open side flanker when hooper is also on the field. That’s absurd.

Blues timing RT….which is usually shocking….might just shock us all…get on that 13.5 I say all 🙂

Reading too much into what?

He’s basically said nothing… 🙂

'It's disappointing for Australia': Hansen reacts to Folau's dismissal

At least theyve acknowledged it…

Luckily the match points werent critical for the Saders but really annoying to take one look at the replay and determine forward from that.

Blues to take out the Saders in Christchurch? Youuuuuu betcha!!

Super Rugby Round 15: Time for some cream

Boy, what a stretch. Without the latest drama which selector would leave Folau out of a match day 23 so that ‘The Walabies can be a better team’?
None I know of.
Oz has 2 maybe three players up for selection who at at least a single point in their career would have been justifiably ‘World best in their position’. Folau, Pocock and Genia at times have been the best around.
Not only would Oz not be ‘better off’, this is a savage blow to Oz’s World cup chances. Folau’s as big a big match player as it gets and has proven that many times. The Wing vs Fullback, erroneous skill levels discussion is nothing compared to having a proven multiple threat player on the field on the big occasion. Folau will likely be the difference between qualifying or if they do, winning the quarter final.
IMO… ????

‘Its disappointing for Australia.’

You see, this is what makes the difference between Hansen and the rest. What an insightful comment. Deep, thought provoking, original. Not a fly within miles.

Go Steve!!! 🙂

'It's disappointing for Australia': Hansen reacts to Folau's dismissal

Yeah, any more than that and the belt has to loosen a little.

Israel Folau has been unfairly hounded out of Australian rugby

No, theres only one there. 🙂

Israel Folau has been unfairly hounded out of Australian rugby

Makes sense. Tis an issue that one can easily be two minds over. Many have argued both for and against Folau. I certainly have.

Folau losing a game he loves: Genia

Yep I’d have Folau also, Raylenes form under the high ball is suspect these days.

Gotcha!

Now there’s an image you can’t take back 🙂

Israel Folau has been unfairly hounded out of Australian rugby

As one who sees both sides to this issue, its now become a very interesting one. Interesting certainly that a religious stance is now gaining popularity in this day and age, where doubt has never been greater and even atheist’s are supporting Folau, or at least, his right to his views.

Fascinating. People huh?

Yes its called ‘The Folau effect’.

Izzys team mates will succumb to his list for sending him to purgatory now that the decision has been laid down.

‘Its not over’ sure has been kickstarted quickly. The Lord does, indeed, work in mysterious ways.

Theres an eerie B grade movie plot here if someone wants it. 🙂
