    looks like we're going for it, pretty much full strength

    posting the video just because it club day and they're all in their club jerseys



  • The Mako have been battered - let's hope they're not about to get deep fried!

    Nankivell is a major loss - interesting to see Tim O'Malley getting a run ahead of Fonotia - a definite 2nd five vs inside centre decision. Probably the right one based on what I saw last week.

    I suspect Isi Tuúngafasi is also a casualty and that weakens the front row. I think it's a debut for Kershawl Sykes-Martin.

    Not sure what's happening with the locks - the old men rested or injured?

    Good to see Anton Segner on the bench again - he's been good with his handful of minutes. Very pleased and relieved to see Sione Havili available. Not sure what the story is with Jake Norris - he seems to have disappeared in recent weeks. I thought he was better than Renton in the early part of the campaign - and a valuable lineout option - so not sure whether he's injured or just sliding down the pecking order.



  • Telea is rather slow...



  • I wish someone had taken Christie there



  • messy game



  • How stupid are bust ups these days. Turns into a 28 man hug with guys all running in to hold back the guy that's holding back a guy that's holding back a guy.



  • man ref is allowing Christie to have his hands on the ball for an age.



  • and again, Otago defence even stepped forward then dropped back...they need to have a crack at him



  • how was that not a knock on by Otago??



  • Tasman pulling away now, 13-24, kick to come



  • no way he came through the gate



  • so did Havili not touch that?? Some simple stuff missed ref



  • WTF was NAreki upto there, giving Hammington the try? Be pissed if they botched it or you had him as last try scorer!!

    Well worked try though



  • You idiot Ioane!

    Also, whats with all the chip kicks. Is Luke MacAlister every team's attacking coach?



  • Jeez Otago, did you have money on Tasman?



  • oh no, what a way to end it!!

    20-26 FT



  • Would have been nice to go into finals with a win

    Very scrappy, even after a lost we played with a big head, trying to open up from range even though we looked our best when just building phases

    Ioane got his place kicking my right but wasn’t handling the rush/double teaming well

    Freedom with another very nice try, big work on is got to be staying on his man, easy yard made around him, he can tackle...he was just on the wrong guy

    Koroi is a blow, he’s either sparked or scored a good % of our tries and is our second choice 10, hope he’s ok

    Interesting, they showed the top points scores n the comp...three were highlanders first fives, ioane might have more competition from Hunt and gatland although not sure we have resigned Gatland



  • @Kiwiwomble Grapevine (S. Harris) says that Gatland is off to the Chiefs.



  • @Daffy-Jaffy said in Otago v Tasman:

    Yeah, heard that too, we also have koroi who is capable which is all we need as third choice
