  • Not Finau again and someone shoot Cameron please



  • No Whitelock or Ennor. Presumably both injured. I hope the All Blacks don't end up needing them.

    I wish they'd move McLeod back to 12 or alternatively pick Poihipi rather than Finau. And we really need to blood another genuine lock ie Tucker rather than utility forward Grace.

    Well that all makes too much sense so that will not happen as the selections have been shit all season



  • Cameron you useless Muppett



  • Jeff Wilson - VEEEEEEERY VEERRRRRY - is not great comms. Please STOP.



  • Canterbury aren't convincing and this Counties side is dross.



  • Oooh, TJ very nearly explained there that the Crusaders scrum coach likes to stockpile his men at Sydenham.



  • So we start the game with two midfielders on the wings and replace one with a first-five-eighths-cum-fullback in Gilbert, while McKay is also historically a 10. They're all local lads (CC, CBHS and STAC) but goes to show we struggle to produce wingers, or perhaps lose them elsewhere and have to manufacture them.



  • Looks like another nil score for the losing team coming up. The way they are going Counties could play for another 6 months and still not trouble the person responsible for updating their side of the scoreboard.



  • A little premature with the previous comment as Counties did somehow manage to score but they only snuck in a couple of minutes before the end. Final score was Canterbury 38 - 05 Counties
