    Surely you are joking?



  • Surely you are joking?

    Everything he did well on Saturday night was World Class. I know he is an erratic, enthusiastic player that tends to have the odd brain explosion but I feel he is starting to hit some form. His passing is a lot more crisp than it was at the beginning of the season and that allows Barrett to stand flatter where he is more dangerous. His running game is sublime and he did more than any other NZ halfback this round, so no I am not joking.

    4 missed tackles and 4 handling errors is not the standard of an All Black Halfback.
     
    2 of those handling errors were at crucial times when the Canes were trying to get back into the match.
     
     
    Take your blinkers off and watch another team for a change.

    haha, I'm waiting for someone to call me out on my crusaders bias now 🙂
     
    to be honest, I thought it would have been you MN5

    I'm still flabberghasted that someone can be "world class" and have "brain explosions"......that's like a tall short bloke......
     
    Goodness me Canes4Life you don't half write some claptrap sometimes



  • Tamanivalu played 13 not 12 on the weekend if I remember correctly, Horrell played 12.



  • Fekitoa was not good against the Sharks. I would go with Havili and Tamanivalu in midfield.

    Hahahaha gotta love canes4life and his ridiculous bias which is borderline trolling now.



  • Hahahaha gotta love canes4life and his ridiculous bias which is borderline trolling now.

    Have a cry!! 5 Canes in the team is hardly bias!! Its funny how you guys are quick to bag but can't come up with a rebuttal on who you think was the better halfback... amateurs.

    Who played better then??

    Obviously you cant read bud. I said what he did well was world class.



  • Who played better then!!

    Brad weber, Andy Ellis and Aaron Smith



  • :idiot2:



  • Brad weber, Andy Ellis and Aaron Smith

    You would be such a great lawyer.
     
    Andy Ellis is the most boring player in NZ. Brad Webber did sweet f all, so did Cruden. Aaron Smith had a quiet game, no surprise due to the red card in the first half. 
     
    You guys are classic.

    Who cares if he is boring... Read mccaws book, he's the most boring man in NZ
    We are picking a form 15, not a team of entertainers
    If rugby was won on entertainment value, then I guess the canes may have won a few more titles aye.



  • I agree that Perenara played better than Weber/TKB. Smith didn't have a good game either. I don't know how "boring" can be related to how well a player plays, but I think Ellis had a good game.

    Goodes, Franks, Rettalick, Fatialofa, Dixon, Cane, Read - They just ooze entertainment aye.
     
    This is the form XV. A bit strange you didn't catch on as its mentioned in the title of this post.
     
    Atleast Nige agrees with me re TJ.

    Ellis could have shown a lot more considering his pack was dominating. Wouldn't say he was the form halfback of the week.

    Andy Ellis is into floristry and Aaron Smith is a hairdresser. Hardly boring  ( but extremely homosexual )
     
    I know most ferners would pay a years salary for a reacharound from Richie and well, what a player but the only possible candidate for someone more boring would be one of footballs Rufer brothers.....

    Your rationale for not picking Andy Ellis is that he's most boring player in NZ. That's why I assumed perenara was there on entertainment value.

    Perenara is there because he was the form halfback of the round compared to the other halfbacks. I do think he has plenty to work on though in smoothing out some of those cracks in his game i.e. dropping the ball cold and kicking the ball out into touch on the full.
     
    He is improving which is a good sign for the Canes moving forward. I do however want to see TTT get a run. I believe he could be better than TJ long term.

    Better than world class ? shit that's gonna be some player.....



  • Long time lurker first time poster but jeeze Canes4life you are more one eyed than any Cantab I have ever met (and I have met a few)



  • You obviously haven't met enough. If a Crusaders fan started this thread all 15 players would be from Crusaderville.
    OMG five Canes this week. Ring the bias police.



  • C4L you didn;t just "like" your own post did you ?
     
    that's just online Willissing !



  • Brilliant, liking one's own posts.
    Which kiwi teams won this week?

    Crikey Bones, up early again, got some preworkout kicking in ?
     
    I was in the country all weekend, no sky so can't confirm but judging from the posts on here the Canes produced the best 80 minutes ever seen on a Rugby field ever.



  • To expand...you're expecting people to believe the Canes lost to the Chiefs with the form 9/10, while the Chiefs beat them with no one of note and the Crusaders trounced the Brumbies with a shit halfback. Ummm...

    I have no idea where you think I am.



  • The Crusaders and Chiefs Bones. Whats your point??

    Usually when you're posting at this hour you're off to smash some tin like those mighty, unbeatable, titanic, mercurial Hurricanes.

  • It's fucken 8.30 bey!

    Ease off on the roid rage homie



  • You fellas crack me up. Quick to judge my XV but too pussy to post your own.
    The Canes lost yes but like Cane said post match they were lucky to scrape through.
    I would back my Canes any day than back a team that reverts to negative tactics just to get them out of a hole. Like Coles said it was a bloody coincidence when their prop went off injured.



  • Hey now, no one calls MN5 a pussy on the fern and gets away with it.
     
    Given I didn't watch a single game it might not be terribly accurate but how about I go for your exact 15 apart from Ellis and Cruden in for Perenara and Barrett ? is that ok ?



  • We so pussy. Why put it up if you don't want to debate it?

    So your saying Cruden and McKenzie are no one of note. Hahahaha ummmmmmmmmm.
    Kicking aside Barrett outclassed Cruden and Perenara played better than Webber.



  • Mn5 you forgot fern favourite Mounga (SP?)
