Scuppered by fucking yellow cards and that treacherous little Nelson Chucky Doll, Mitch Drummond!
That is all!
@chris That's why he's hopefully got parents and an agent.
TBH if you've come through the Canterbury system and the Crusaders come knocking on your door, I reckon you'd have to have a bloody good offer from elsewhere to turn them down.
It really is a bit like a free shake of the AB dice!
@bones Don't think there's a lot on Youtube - though he's a bit hard to google - you get a lot of questions, "Will Jordan do such and such?" etc!
Trainor confusion might make sense. Will stands out like a sore thumb as being pretty bloody good.
Bridge vs Jordan tonight should be interesting to watch. One that Jordan needs to win if Tasman is to win, I think!
Most interesting part of this is :
It turns out the Crusaders were struggling to determine why Jordan, a World Cup winner with the NZ under-20s last year, wasn't feeling 100 per cent.
"What it came to, it wasn't a concussion problem, but more if an inner-ear thing which was causing vertigo and a few vision problems. It just took a while to nut that out," Jordan said.
Jordan, who earlier this week was named Tasman Mako "player of the year", was eventually cleared to play in July, but did not see the field down the stretch.
@nzzp If that is true it is a damning indictment on everyone else.
Nick had about three years of working in the real world!
Yeah - but training as an Engineer is quite reality based. You actually have to interface with the real world ... and while 3 years working, being in the Smithbridge family would mean some real dinnertime chats about construction, debts, regulators, etc.
So yeah, a bit of a damning indictment. Stark by comparison with our friend Jami Lee Ross ...
He was also bringing his broad life experiences to the Rangiora DC as a councillor by age 21 - apparently whilst also working for the Council's engineering department.
I bet his workmates loved being part of growing his storied career!
