"Team is king": Cheika speaks on Folau sacking

You will have to explain that ….. because in my opinion you cannot really fault what Cheika said.

"Team is king": Cheika speaks on Folau sacking

Could have played their last games in the Rebels strip ???? So where could they possibly go ?? If reports are true of the Rebels depleted coffers, and RA is hardly in a position to help out, who could be contenders to sign them??
The Reds ?? Maybe for Cooper but I doubt it for Genia.
The Tahs ?? Depends on what Foley and Beale’s plans are I reckon.
The Brumbies ?? Doubt it, they don’t need either.
Off to Japan?? Gee they will have to call the Japan comp the Northern NRC soon.

Cooper: We are finals ready

can’t argue with that ….. good point ….. I only said Maloney cos he was the first name that came to mind hahahahaha

Pearce provides Fittler with much-needed experience, much-needed scapegoat

I can’t believe the latest mail that Cleary will stay as half with Pearce at 5/8 or vice versa.

If you want Pearce then select him at half and give him a real 5/8 like Maloney. Otherwise it will be as you suggest, just selected as a scapegoat.

I agree with Timbo there Nick ….. Uelese showed us nothing last week.

Take note, Michael Cheika: Canberra must be the Wallabies' power base in 2019

That is a very tough red card. Arms low, chest on, no attempt to go high.

Spectator saves tiny child from being trampled by try-scoring run

Correct I haven’t yet seen the teams sheets …. ok so Maddocks gets a night off from impersonating defence. Chiefs will still want it more in my opinion.

Have the Rebels thrown a debut finals appearance away - again?

Yeah I have seen the Tahs team ….. contracts to play for mate

Super Rugby Round 18: For the clubhouse lead

Technically the Rebels can make the finals but honestly I reckon they have a snowball’s chance in hell. They might match up for 10 minutes but then the Chiefs will run it down Maddock’s wing, score and the Rebels heads will drop. Genia will get frustrated and mouth off and one and all. QC will over play his hand and get picked off a couple of times.
Chiefs are tough, battle hardened and will want it more.

I will start with predicting the Tahs to scratch out a draw in Invercargill. Why? Cos the Landers must go all out for a bonus point win and they will not respect the ball.
I expect the Chiefs to be too tough and battle hardened for the tackle shy Rebels …. run the ball down Maddock’s wing all night and win by plenty.
Jaguares are a no brainer. Likewise Canes will have a contested practice run. Brumbies will get up by 10 over the Reds.
The Stormers forward pack is decimated so the Sharks should be able to win this and the Lions have no Whitely or Kwagga Smith so the Bulls should do enough to get the win.

Hey Brett did I, or did I not, predict a Tahs game squad of nobodies ???

Top four sorted, next four might not change either

The Great Pretenders it is

Top four sorted, next four might not change either

I am expecting to see a lot of Chiefs play headed in the direction of Hodge, Maddocks and DHP if those players line up in the same positions as they did last week.
Seriously, Maddocks was woeful. Not only did he miss tackles, he did not get near others and he showed absolutely no urgency about getting back when he was beaten. If he hangs his head one more time Wessells should lop it off.

Top four sorted, next four might not change either

Possible Tahs back 5 …. Hanigan, Simmons, Swinton, Hooper, Holloway with Dempsey plus 2 newcomers on the bench ….. if it is true that Wells and Miller are moving on

Top four sorted, next four might not change either

Definitely not Maddocks unless you want a half pace speed bump sitting on a wing. The Crusaders seriously embarrassed him to the point where Maddocks could not even chase back when beaten first up.

Brumbies bounce Tahs out of finals contention

I think he got most of that in the first 10 minutes, then he clocked off as he does so often.

Brumbies bounce Tahs out of finals contention

Toomua is just not a 10. He has zero playmaking ability and as Jeznez says, he does not engage defences.

Brumbies bounce Tahs out of finals contention

Yep …. Maddocks ran around at half pace wearing a “I don’t do defence” sign. Toomua proved he is not a 10. Does anyone need more convincing? Out of the Rebels pack only Philip had a go. The next big thing Uelese was nothing. Did he even run on at kick off? DHP was out of position so often I thought he was playing 8, mind you Naisarani the real 8 clocked off after 5 minutes. Lastly Luke Jones forgot to get off the team bus.

Brumbies bounce Tahs out of finals contention

Cheers to the Brumbies for a good win. It seemed to be a game of two halves, with the Brums outscoring the Tahs in “their” half.
I thought Phipps, Hooper, AAC and Rona were the best for the Tahs while for the Brums there entire tight 5 plus CLL were the best.

Lies and blatantly unfair: Folau slams Rugby Australia

Thats only your opinion, as misguided as it is.

Lies and blatantly unfair: Folau slams Rugby Australia

Neil you are being pedantic ….. the reference says something like “will not ascend to the right hand of God” which means will not go to heaven, which then follows you go to hell, if you believe all that stuff. Yes Folau paraphrased it but I reckon you are drawing a long bow to say a judge will rule against that being Folau’s belief.

Neil it was from Corinthians …. someone else earlier in this thread posted it in full

BREAKING: Israel Folau takes legal action against Rugby Australia

Name who Folau insulted. What you can’t? I am done debating with you. You refuse to face facts and have no logical argument apart from repeating your mantra over and over even though you have been shown to be wrong. Have a good weekend.
