Haha unusual for media to exaggerate a situation!!!

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Yeah around 12000 people fit in but not a very modern stadium…

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

My Aus son-in-law sent me a photo recently showing the moment the batsman threw his bat in the air and the headline was
“NZ batsman shows bad sportsmanship as he fails to hit winning runs”
Genius…. 😂 😂 😂
And i remember it like it was just yesterday…Problem is I cant remember yesterday LOL

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Yep that it….Only a ( pythonesque ) flesh wound tho LOL

Apparently he taught Trevor Chappel everything he knew… 😂 😂 😂

Based in Fiji and at lease 3 games a year in Fiji with a game in Sydney or somewhere in NZ. Id like to see all Fijian games in Fiji

Tana did it no probs at Auckland

but until we get a properly managed global calendar, these kind of spats will continue to arise.
Yep it needs to happen and soon…Private investment is probably the key I guess…

Paulo this was Dmacs first run at 10 for some years….He will get better than what we saw on the weekend and his attack will start to improve. On the weekend he just organised things, he hardly ran and hardly attacked himself…Just did the basics very well…..Im looking forward to seeing him with another 3 or 4 games at 10 under his belt…

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Nah never wanted him at 11….Id have BB 10 Dmac 15 but happy to see the other way around as BB probably has a higher top end pace but Dmac probably quicker over the first 10mtrs with those shorter legs….Im still looking for a small Mounga doll…Haha… 😂 😂

Yeah not really possible for Fiji to host but if we bring them in and we have a successful Fijian side in SR then who knows what may become of it 10 years down the track. EG a decent capacity stadium for starters…Lets face it Fiji certainly has the accommodation availability

Touch wood if Jacobson continues in this form and doesnt get another concussion he will be demanding the 8 this year…Sotutu has dropped off and Savea will be 7 with Cane out…He could be the ABs 6 too…

Come on Nick you dont get twice player of the year by not creating for the backline. He was shifted when in his prime as a 10 and has never been put back there to see…The injury to Dmac…The demand for a 2 playmaker system…and the crys for RM all combined at a critical moment to put BB back to 15…..I know its a lesser comp but he’s excelling at 10 in Japan…

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Yeah he looked to be really developing nicely in 13 last year but I think the whole Blues team has gone backward this year inc Ioane and Clark…Ive been a big fan of him going to 13 but at the moment Im not convinced he is in the 23….

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Yeah with a RC type system I cant see that as a big problem tho JN…EG the ABs head off and play Japan Arg and SA in 4 weekends ( 1 week bye ) then home for next lot of home games v these same teams. Or we look at a host nation every year alternating between the involved countries…
I certainly dont have the answers but SH needs a 6N so lets work something out that works as their are 5 tier 1 nations plus fiji in the SH right now…

Yep you win games by scoring the most points not the most tries…Something Hooper needs to take note of…

So true Damo….The Holden loving bosses at Surpercars made something like 7 changes to bring the mustangs back to the field and to promote Holden to the front so its very telling that nothing is being done now. Holden have won ALL races so far…Come on holden Supercar bosses sort this out!!!

Supercars Tasmania SuperSprint talking points

And with a NZ/Aus bubble both nations could co-host any tournaments…..

Geez such an informative comment…And so much of it was new….Now run away and find a kid to take some lollies off you little Ferret you!!!

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

So start planning it NOW for next year or the year after…It takes time to sort thru all the details anyway…

Yeah Im not sure why Wessells hasnt gone forward…He came from the Force with plenty of promise but just falls short of delivering every year. Maybe a Gats type over the top is exactly whats needed and we have already seen Tana Umaga step down from HC to assistant so its only ego that would stop it happening…

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Lots of youth in all teams this season JD….Loving some of the new guys and I think Ah Kuoi is having an impressive season. With Brodie to come back and Ah Kuoi and Vaa’i around its a strong lock lineup next year…

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

I think the Rebels need a new coach and Gats would be the perfect fit…He probably already knows Geoff Parkes hehe and maybe the two of them could nut out a way to get the Rebels to at least play to their potential….

Ten out of tens: What will Super Rugby Trans-Tasman deliver?

Me too Jes….I think if RA went the full U20 rugby mode for 5 years ( big expense I know ) That would go a long way to changing the juniors all running off to league over a 60K contract at 17yo…..Turn the screws up on League rather than let them constantly get all those young Union stars…The name Twiggy comes to mind and the 3 mil a year it would cost above the current systems is peanuts to guys like him…Get a full TT U20 comp going and call it the Twiggy Cup…( maybe the Forrest Cup? )

Never seen Dmac at 12 but Id still back him to contribute…
