Ultimate NPC: - Manawatu



  • Go the Poo



  • No ‘Poo fans at all?

    Surely a half decent team can be cobbled together here?
    One of the great AB props, a blindside legend, probably the best halfback ever, a very good 10.....



  • Come on down @voodoo

    Come on down @voodoo

    Uggh, sounds like effort...



  • A handy backline....

    Smith
    Cruden
    Laumape
    Thompson
    Milner-Skudder
    Tikoirotuma
    Cullen



  • Also, we suck and will get thumped in the 1st round unless we draw Taranaki, or HB, or Tasman. Or Northland, or Counties.

    Anyway, @Nepia knows more about PN than me apparently...



  • Gary Knight
    Bruce Hemara
    Kent Lambert
    Frank Oliver (unless claimed by Southland)
    ?
    Mark Shaw
    Kevin Schüler/ Kevin Eveleigh
    Geoff Old

    This pack would at least win any all in brawl. Not many would take on Knight, Shaw and Oliver together



  • Lee Stensness
    Lachie Cameron
    Craig Wickes
    Ken Granger
    Jackson Hemopo
    Jason Eaton

    I once played a game of twilight cricket against an adults team with Gary Knight in it. I would have been 15 or 16, keeping wicket. He was batting, facing a spinner. Cant remember what happened exactly, but I think he played at one and missed or something. I said something that he didn't particularly like and he turned and gave me this fucking look that made me almost piss and shit myself at the same time. Next delivery I was in my keeping stance about as deep as I would have been to Malcolm Marshall.

    You made a smart comment to a guy nicknamed Axle?

    😂 😂 😂



  • @Crucial I'm pretty sure I just gave some encouragement to my bowler! Whatever I said, he looked like he wanted to eat me.

    He was a super heavyweight Commonwealth Games wrestler and, if I have the legend correct, got his nickname by lifting his tractor so others could take the axle off.



  • @Crucial fuck!



  • My old man grew up in PN and that whole side of the family are there. Used to spend school holidays as punishment in that cold grey shit hole but the good bit was that it was when both the Poo and CM were top contenders and I got to go to games. My grandfather was a massive supporter and used to follow all the school teams to keep track on upcoming players. He had a huge collection of programmes and autographs which were donated to the Rugby Museum when he died.

    Thats awesome. Took my kids to the RM last time I was there. Smaller than I remembered, but some cool stuff there.



  • Have Marx Jones or Grant Cole been heard of since 1981? I would imagine Gary was a bit pissed at them.

    Wickes didn't last long.

    I thought Granger.

    Forgot Nug is from the Poo - My immediate thought was Donaldson

    Pretty good pack.
