  • Hawke’s Bay:
    1: Jason Long
    2: Ash Dixon
    3: Pouri Rakete-Stones
    4: Geoff Cridge
    5: Michael Allardice
    6: Hugh Renton
    7: Fa’alemiga Selesele
    8: Marino Mikaele-Tu’u
    9: Chris Eaton
    10: Ihaia West
    11: Sam McNicol
    12: Richard Buckman
    13: Cardiff Vaega
    14: Jonah Lowe
    15: Tiaan Falcon
    Reserves: Jacob Devery, Mark Braidwood, Jarvy Aoake, Nicholas Palmer, Brad Weber, Hayden Hann, To’o Vaega

    I thought Weber was out for the season?
    Great to see Jonah Lowe back and starting, but I would prefer he was playing 13
    No specialist 7 😞



  • @Stockcar86 Yeah, I saw the line-up on Sky. Surprised to see Weber there, indeed. Strange after his post on Instagram. Also, Jonah Lowe back much earlier than expected. But in both cases, great news!

    I'd change a lot more, but keep Lowe at 14 to get this backline: 9 Eaton, 10 West, 11 TJ Vaega, 12 Falcon, 13 Buckman, 14 Lowe, 15 McNicol. I really don't like it that they persist in playing Falcon at fullback.

    I also got the impression last week, that Evans was expected to play this week.
    I guess Selesele can't play at 6, because I think Renton is a better 7 than a 6. Anyway, at least Cridge will play at lock again, as he should be, and Renton is back in the squad.

    The no. 20 in the reserves is (according to Sky) Lucas Goodin. That will be his debut, won't it?



  • Fuck, TJ and Marshall



  • We are going surprisingly well, three minutes gone and we have yet to concede a point.



  • And even more pleasing my guys have now got off zero after Ihaia West knocks over a penalty from close range.



  • Nice cover tackle by Ihaia ....

    Time to bring Weber on ....



  • We did well to hold them out for 10 minutes. Flood gates likely to open now.



  • Damn, I don't know how to post a Gif ....



  • Nepia, I will almost certainly be up in Palmy tomorrow watching a whangai grand daughter playing for St Marys in the Hurricanes Schoolgirls final against a Palmy team at 11.30 so will take in, and give a report from, your outfit against St. Patricks College Silverstream in the boys final if we stick around long enough for that game at 2.30.



  • Well, we do have a specialist 7, playing at 12 with 2 turnovers won so far



  • Looks like zero work has been done practicing catching high kicks since the BoP match.



  • Shit and an even more feeble attempt as Falcon shelves yet another one.

    That's why he needs to play at 12, give him a chance to get his confidence back



  • Ouch, that scrum was embarrassing.

    Is kick off 2:30pm not 12:30pm? I'm trying to figure out to watch it via a mates Sky Go.



  • Who is that guy in the number 20 jersey that has come on as a replacement? It does not look like the Waratahs guy that is listed in the team posted by '86



  • Lucas Goodin - Clive #8

    As an Aussie if he has a decent game he's probably in line for a Crusaders contract. 😉

    This http://www.clubrugby.co.nz/wellington/story.php?id=2586 says it is a 2.30pm kick off but it might pay to keep googling to confirm
