Yeah.. rebels didn’t turn up. The Blues forward pack can’t be underestimated. If the Blues pack turn up to play.. it’s going to be a challenge to contain them. As the poor Rebels and even worse for their fans watching this destruction of their team. Flush it Rebels and learn from it.

Blues massacre Rebels to continue New Zealand clean sweep

Always been this weird contest between brumbies & the crusaders. Brumbies have a way of matching the crusaders forward pack. But, play completely different against another team. Better luck next time brumbies

Brumbies fall heartbreakingly short in titanic struggle with Crusaders

Poor Skudder, he’s had a terrible run with injuries. His shoulder reconstruction back in 2016. The last 4 or 5 years have been up and down with injury and setback after setback. Hopefully he can finally get an opportunity.

Super Rugby Trans-Tasman Round 1 teams: Brumbies name new half for Crusaders clash

The best team in Australia you’d think would want to make a statement.. Beating the Highlanders in Dunedin can be a hard win. The Highlanders have won 13 out of 23 matches. So better than average for the Otago franchise. Losing Shannon Frizell is unfortunate. But Pari Pari Parkinson back is great news! NMS.. think his playing days might be coming to an end, injury prone

Great!! Now we have to watch Razor try to dance.. not sure what that is actually?? Certainly not Breakdancing! He’s looking.. more limited in his moves these days. To many surf injuries

Champions again! Crusaders too good in Super Rugby Aotearoa final

Come on Te Chiefs!!!!! Ki te kotahi te kakaho ka whati, Ki te kapuia e kore e whati!!!! Anything is possible, Argentina proved it against the All Blacks. Took Ireland 111-years for a victory over the All Blacks at Soldier Field, Chicago. On the day anything is possible. kia ora Rangatira!!

Chiefs eye upset over Crusaders in Super Rugby decider

Chiefs
Reds.. only because there’s so many kiwis in the Reds 😁

Super Rugby tipping panel week 12: Double-final extravaganza week

Yeah bro. That’s what I’m afraid of. Crusaders get a good start and score a flurry of points early.. (worst part is getting a drunk Christchurch crowd excited).. Chiefs will be up against it. Chiefs will be scrutinised at every touch of the ball. Even the refs start to get a effected by the crowd 😂 Chiefs need to empty the tanks. Can’t under estimate the challenge that lays ahead of the chiefs. The hardest game to ever win in Super Rugby. Damn it would be wicked if they won

Can Scott Robertson's Crusaders secure their fifth straight title?

Totally bro!! Chiefs defence has been very effective last few rounds. Beating the Crusaders is testimony to that 👍 also the last few Hurricanes vs chiefs games were really impressive chiefs forward display! Side question.. (have you noticed how niggle/aggressive Coles has been. Hes starting to makes Fitzy look like a choirboy

Can Scott Robertson's Crusaders secure their fifth straight title?

Yes.. indeed. Like Rennie also.

Can Scott Robertson's Crusaders secure their fifth straight title?

Yes.. it’s kind of an annoying outcome. But I think you’re right. The Chiefs will need a tight game start to finish to have any hope..
No Moody helps a bit. No Goodhue in the midfield is also helpful for the chiefs. The Chiefs just have to play the full 80, they proved they’re capable! The Chiefs have the talent, Tupou Vaa’i is getting better and better. Angus Ta’avao.. Needs a big game. Anton Lienert-Brown! Needs to take charge and dominate the midfield contest. Bryn Gatland Is another dude who’s coming into his own. Pity Boshier and Cane are injured.. Hopefully the smiling assassin McKenzie utilises everything in his arsenal to keep the Crusaders honest. It really comes down to the Chiefs forward power! The chiefs Forward pack has to draw in some serious Waikato Mana and unleash it on the field! Go Te Chiefs!!

Can Scott Robertson's Crusaders secure their fifth straight title?

Tough to beat the Crusaders at home. I’ll expect a capacity crowd at Orangetheory Stadium.. The chiefs have to shutdown Mo’unga! Eliminate his influence from the game with constant pressure. Taking out Mo’unga reduces the risk of the Crusaders backline. With Will Jordan and Havilile.. let’s be honest the Crusaders forward pack is their strongpoint. The only Weakness in the Crusaders forward pack has been a few issues with Discipline lately. Also! Let’s not forget the Chiefs beat the Crusaders in Hamilton only a few weeks ago.
I’d love to see Te Chiefs win.. Go Te Chiefs!!

Can Scott Robertson's Crusaders secure their fifth straight title?

Yes.. that’s very disappointing 😊

The problem with Super Rugby Trans-Tasman

It’s just the nature of it unfortunately. He should be happy!! NZ teams have been smashing each other for weeks before they get to meet an Australian team. Should be the Aussies with a huge advantage! After weeks of Fluffing round with these weaker teams.. haha

The problem with Super Rugby Trans-Tasman

So.. you’re blaming NZ teams because the Australian teams are weaker. Is that our fault??

The problem with Super Rugby Trans-Tasman

Haha!! yes ya gave back just as much as you received.. plus interest 😂

Will the Wallabies ever win the bloody Bledisloe?

Haha excellent!!! I don’t miss those days.. being on the end of a drive over was your worst nightmare!! Still have sprig scars 😂 good times

Will the Wallabies ever win the bloody Bledisloe?

Make it even harder if NZR have to pay for the Wallabies flights and accommodation if the Wallabies go back to Amateur status.

Will the Wallabies ever win the bloody Bledisloe?

You’re an expert Geoff.. What’s this I hear Australian Rugby are considering going back to Amateur? Rugby Australia chairman Hamish McLennan said the organisation was “shaken to its core” by the impact of the global pandemic. And the size of the financial loss led to serious conversations about becoming amateur! Australia needs their own Silver Lakes Deal

Will the Wallabies ever win the bloody Bledisloe?

Savant.. What’s this I hear Australian Rugby wants to go back to Amateur?? After a net deficit of $27 Million. Apparently it’s a real possibility? You heard about this??

Will the Wallabies ever win the bloody Bledisloe?

Wouldn’t think so?? Ka Mate haka is getting a thrashing around the globe.. surprised Ngāti Toa hasn’t patented it? Latest I saw was Dwayne (the rock) Johnson using it to promote his new energy drinks! Wonder if he asked permission?

New Zealand Rugby votes in favour of selling stake to US equity firm

The 26 Provincial Unions and New Zealand Māori Rugby Board (NZMRB) voted unanimously in favour.. hopefully someone in there has got the best interest of NZR

New Zealand Rugby votes in favour of selling stake to US equity firm

Yes agree, money talks man.

New Zealand Rugby votes in favour of selling stake to US equity firm

Kind of damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation. If NZR goes broke and it will if it doesn’t find big cashflow. Then what? The World of rugby isn’t like it use to be in the amateur era.. for that matter. Did going professional ruin this thug’s game played by gentleman? Anyway, I’m not sure how I feel about it to be honest

Typo my mistake 👍
