  • I hope the Jaguares win, because they play more exciting and attractive rugby.

    I hope the Brumbies win, because - in case the Hurricanes beat the Saders - it's better for the Canes to travel to Canberra than all the way to Buenos Aires.

    I don't think it matters for the Crusaders, because - whoever wins this semi - they have to travel to Chch anyway in case of a Crusaders' win.

    Dunno about that - they've both had their dour moments in order to win games.

    The Ponies fucking carved the Chiefs up in all areas way back at the start of the season, and did the same to the Tahs 2 weeks ago. It contrasts with their low moments - losses to Rebels, Reds, Saders, Jags, etc - but they've got a decent attack.

    Yeah they like to go to the maul but that is also exciting to see executed so well .... unless you're a back and then your opinion doesn't matter. πŸ€·β™‚

    Jags will probably win, but nobody will beat the Saders at home after they edge out the Canes.

    I'd be stoked for the Jags to win. They played iwth great spirit, and have a fantastic crowd behind them. I can't see the Brums playing expansive or interesting rugby



  • Generally speaking, finals rugby rarely gives the fans this so called expansive rugby that everyone desires. We get glimpses of it, but it’s more defensive pressured rugby.

    I’ll watch with great interest, but with one eye on @Jaguares4real reaction if the Brumbies get up πŸ˜€

    It does have that air of inevitability about it.

    I think the Brumbies will go very close to winning as their game is more suited to knockout rugby. Whoever did their analysis against the Bulls was very good too - the inside ball carved them apart (the one thing I must say the most at training - punish the lazy inside defender).

    Nah Not feeling that

    Test Matches are largely mealiness IMO

    Too many teams play each other too often

    Los Pumas don't have the playing pool of other nations so need to prioritise accordingly Add to that a diabolical travel itinerary & there's a need to be pragmatic

    TRC matters

    June Test matches & EOYT to Europe are a distinct 2nd priority for Pumas

    Los Pumas have a track record of delivering spectacular results in RWC

    As long as that continues I can live with mediocre to crap results in "Test Matches" outside of TRC

    8 wins & 29 losses in games post RWC 2015 is terrible & that includes 4 wins over Tier 2 nations - Japan Georgia & Italy

    Ok so to be the best in the world a team needs to play less Rugby. Gotcha.

    I understand where you are coming from with all your points and have highlighted the two I don't necessarily agree with.

    TEst matches will never be meaningless. Some may be more meaningful than others, but none are really meaningless.

    And spectacular isn't the right word. I would say in 2 world cups they have outperformed. Which is 25%, so I don't think your track record comment is overly accurate. Having said that, their demolition of Ireland in 2015 was probably my match of the tournament. I'd say that game was spectacular.

    I will certainly give them the credit they deserve for improvement since joining TRC. Although 7 of 8 wooden spoons doesn't give off that. Was surprised to read that as I've felt they've been a nice addition.

    Possibly. It's also a struggle trying to remember all the "stunning" results that Argentina have delivered during the World Cup.

    Also 7 out of 8 wooden spoons in TRC puts things in perspective a bit too don't you think ?



  • @MN5 scoring a last minute try to beat Scotland in RWC 2011 that effectively knocked Scotland out of the tournament was pretty stunning.....



  • @KiwiMurph was only Scotland....

    Argies generally have the wood on the French in RWCs

    For all the piss and bluster, a strong Argies is fantastic for world rugby, hopefully the Jaguares can transform Super form into International form now.

    You can look at the results at the last 3 RWC's to jog your memory considering the lack of resources Los Pumas had........

    I understand this is a kiwi rugby forum so the workings of ARG rugby might be alien to many

    Don't really care about Wooden Spoon in TRC when the team was firstly getting used to the comp and the travel plus Jaguares joining SR

    Alot of changes + bad management = πŸ’© πŸ’©

    I'll look to the future now ARG rugby has some stability & good coaching



  • @MN5 said in Semi Final 2: Jaguares v Brumbies:

    Beating France in the opening game of RWC 2007 which led to some game in Cardiff.

    Knocking out the favoured Ireland in 2015 by cutting them apart with some fantastic tries.

    Fair point.

    Failing to make it out of the group stages on four occasions isn't flash though.

    Funny how you "forgot" the 2007 and 2015 World Cup I wonder why πŸ˜‰

    At least you can see how Jaguares can potentially transform Super Rugby & bring it back to its glory days of strength vs strength

    With AUS rugby being a 🀑 show & SA rugby being decimated by a weak rand + quotas as well as bad coaching & governance

    NZ rugby is also likely to decline as well

    Highlanders in 2020 will essentially be a Mitre Cup full of journeymen plus A Smith Iaone & Coltman + Blues remaining a basket case

    Mickey mouse league in Japan threatens to extract copious amounts of NZ talent

    Jaguares offers a chance for a team to emerge with a stable of young emerging talent with Int'l quality throughout team & best atmosphere of any Super Rugby ground

    TV time is good for AUS/NZ market

    And for good measure dusting up the French for a 2nd time in 3rd/4th playoff in 2007

    I should have made it clear when I meant last 3 world cups as they're the ones I've watched & freshest in minds of fans under 30

  • @Jaguares4real no, I think you need to check the responses...you are so busy with all your fishing lines oyu have no idea what bait is being responded too and which fish is biting and if one is biting at all.

    I responded to a specific quote, that wasnt even yours then you are saying I am conveniently forgetting somethign.

    Aw ok. Based on that logic I'll sit and hope all the achievements of Pinetree, Lochore, Brownlie etc are expunged from the record books.

    Those guys were so shit none of them even played in a World Cup.

    Not only that they all retired before I was even born so their records are completely irrelevant.

    Looks well over 40k.

  • The Jaguares are well ahead now. They're taking their opportunities, without doing anything spectacular. Brumbies are just utter shit thus far.



  • 20-0 after 20 mins, looks like a long night ahead for the Bumboys. They're just looking lazy - travel?



  • Have the brumbies checked out ?
