    Chiefs have firm claim to being underdogs..
    Don’t forget that the Canes ditched the Chiefs coach years ago.

    They did ditch him for the Hammetuer so it evens out a bit. But Canes are definitely favourites, home town advantage and they can't keep playing as shit as they have been so far. The Chiefs have played above themselves this year but the Canes should be a class above.

    "Can't keep playing shit" is one of the more ludicrous reasons to think your team will win.

    My college team has been shit all year. The good money is that they will continue to be shit, at least till next season. Teams playing badly don't, as a whole, suddenly find their mojo.

    Unless you think the Hurricanes will go "how stupid of us. We should find our form now."It's It's probably under the bed.

    If the Hurricanes win, it'll be Barrett magic, rather than suddenly getting good again.

    How magic was Barrett....

    Well, I though t it would take positive magic from the Barretts. It instead took negative from the Chiefs halves.

    But did the Canes suddenly start playing well, like you suggested? Or did they ride intercepts and dropped balls?

    > Still, I'm sure they can't keep playing this badly. No doubt they'll hit their straps and give the Crusaders a stern lesson.

    You've done a 360 in the last 24 hours.



  • @nepia Nope. It was sarcasm.

    We need a sarcasm button like the spoiler eye.

    I'd put it around 'Yes, BB's positive magic won the game for the Canes".



  • The Canes won as a result of repeated errors from Weber (in particular) and DMac in the first half undoing the good work of their forwards, and then the Canes pack actually putting in a very good effort in the 2nd 40.

    Well considering I didn't suggest anything, that might be quite a claim.

    I'd say they were much better than they have been and that spell of defence prior to half-time was testament to that. If you think they played shit then that's pretty shit.



  • What did Fifita do for his yellow and piss Brodie off?



  • I think he ran in and pushed somebody over once the scuffle between Cane and Lousi had finished and set it off again. It wasn't needed and he looked more the fool for being binned.

    It originally started with Cane lying on the ground and twisting Lousi's foot as Lousi was trying to get back onside. Cane becomes pretty niggly when he isn't on form.



  • @toddy He's always been niggly. It's only more noticeable when he isn't on form because it isn't balanced enough by good stuff.



  • The French should feel mortified they lost to a team that had that as a first five-eighth. Exactly the sort of game that gives me All Black RWC nightmares.
