yeah but even QLD lose to NSW in origin even though our team is twice theirs. Thing is our coaching staff arent doing their job. With our current team it should read like this:

Scrum: B
Lineout: A
Attack: B+
Defence: A-
Tactics: A

No one (Read: Except those trying to justify their salaries) will argue that the All Blacks aren't in front of the field. I don't think they are that far ahead.

We'll be ok, once we settle on a backline and move foward with it. The wallaby foward pack is close to NZ, the difference maker is the AB's back row.

My point in summary. NZ not unbeatable.

I agree with this, they have quality players but really in the backline atm they are only better in the centres and obviously Dagg at fullback (assuming we are full strength that is). Our front row is pretty solid, our flankers are top notch and our scrum and flyhalf are excellent.

They are ahead by a margin but nothing that is too outrageous, just look at the tri nations last year. If we have a team performing like that we can beat them.

Yeah, I ask y'all, how many Wallabies would make the NZ team as starters.

Robinson, Polota Nau, Sharpe, Pocock, Genia, Mitchell.

Possibles/benchies = Digby, Kepu, Barnes.

Go!

Genia for sure and maybe Sharpe.

Pocock might make the bench. And before you blow your tops, I say "might" because of the fact that NZ seldomly have a fully-fledged 7 on the pine.

An Idiot you say!? Well you sir, are a common Dandy!

Kaino, McCaw, Read. No way would I mess with that. Even with Kaino out, i'd still pick Thomson/Vito/Messam. All of which are great with ball in hand, dominant tacklers and excellent lineout options.
Thomson is my #1 pick because, out of the tree he has the greater ability to turn the ball over/be a pest come ruck time (not to the same degree as Pocock but we do have McCaw and Hore who do that job pretty well as is).

If we didn't have Read, then McCaw would be 8 and then i'd have DP at 7.

You and Yakov are real patriots huh!?

I also hate the Wallabies but that hatred is bred into every New Zealander.

Pocock is as good as everyone says. At this point in time he is the best #7 in world rugby.

How to beat the Crusaders:

- have your scrum backpeddling at 100 miles an hour
- win 0% of your lineout ball
- 30% possession and territory for entire match.

Good job Hurricanes.

(I am pretty happy tbh, as the Canes have been my #2 team since I heard they was dropping Ma'ascara Nonu and Fat Piri)

brumbies lost to blues.. wtf. thats a mega choke. Blues have only won 1-2 games all season. mega choke

Reds score 5 tries, get the win, get the bonus point, and end up with a home semi next week! what in the actual fuck. Man, how good do genia and cooper throw the ball around. deadset the most beautiful, flat, 20m passes you'll see

waratahs were woeful ay beertank. but this is @magicstick.. see adam ashley cooper? Mostly known for his running game.. slots a 45m field goal for three points. then later on, throws a beautiful 15m pass to put his man on the outside of the defender, and the waratahs crashed over. (71st min or whatever)

Yeah I watched the game, fucking Waratahs have a better player at almost every position except 7/8/9/10/11 (digby) and just got swept off the park in the second half.

THe blues have won 5 games I think.

God damn Blues! Breakin my balls Blues, breakin my balls.

They won 4 games (Bulls, Lions, Force & Brumbies).

How good is the Sharks loose-forward trio!? Daniel, Coetzee and Kankowski, must be one of the best going around at the moment. I'm picking them to beat the Reds, solely because of Bismark du Plesis.

'The Beast' Mtawarira in action. Seen this awhile ago but it still takes my breath away.
(0.07 & 0.50)




Crusaders should be too strong even without the great Kieran Read (not ruled out yet).

That was sick!

Also @ Timmy. How about the Stormers locks?? Bekker/steenkamp. Also, kolisi at 6 is a beast! Also Peter Grant is a huge 10..

Rabbitohs game twas sick, reversal of round 1 result to boot. Also how has Merritt not played Origin? (pretty sure he hasn't)


On a Super note, Cooper deserved that suspension. He intended to remove Barnes from the equation and succeeded. Equation being, the game and Wallabies #10 jersey for RC.

A couple of big losses for the Sharks, Frans Steyn and Pat Lambie are out through suspension and injury respectively.
