Hurricanes vs Crusaders



  • @Stargazer maybe Jordie took the last piece of pavlova when they were last home?

    @Canerbry he doesn’t play this bad when he basically has the Cantab forward pack for the ABs, so we have a direct comparison.

    I also said it was the worst game I’ve seen him play.

    The All Black team that have had almost no spark in the backs for a season? Team after team have showed that if you defend tightly that Barrett backline is easily contained. Even a poor England were half a metre from doing us over.

    Basically if the AB don't run the opposition into the ground, giving space in the last twenty minutes, they struggle.

    When was the last time Barrett blew away a top side in Black? We rely on Ioane and our fullback for any spark these days.



  • Vs Oz in the Bledisloe, he was on fire, but since then....



  • An embarassing match for the Canes top players. Completely outplayed by their opposites. Tiatia and Lam also badly exposed.

    The Canes coaches need to get their act together.

    One start would be this. If a player plays a good game one week then they start the next week in the same position. As it is there's no real incentive for players. Play a blinder and they are still dropped or moved around. Goosen should have started this week. And Jordie should have started at 2nd. Reward good form. As it is the selections are a joke. Lam can play like crap and he still gets a start. Other players can have a good game but dropped or on the bench.

    My view is Plumtree isn't a head coach. He's a great assistant though.

    I think you're giving them too much credit, they haven't noticed yet that their starting lock is shorter than some teams loose forward trios.

    But Ardie...

    Let me think about that half... Tiatia, Lam showed why they're not AB's, Fifita goes high with and without the ball. Jordie Barrett - just needs to play smarter

    That's hilarious. He's played half a dozen games of super rugby, I'd say that's got a shit load more to do with it than any mistake he made in one game.

    Brilliant eh, Jordie looked pissed like Scott really sticks it to him after a win.
