I haven't followed closely but it seems he hasn't had many injuries in France?
It was rare for him to have six weeks without an injury. Maybe the seasons in Japan let everything come right?
Sam Caird is already training with the team covering for Cowley-Tuioti who has apparently had shoulder surgery and will start the season late. Maybe he will be upgraded and someone else brought in to cover C/T. Ben Nee Nee maybe?
The GCT injury complicates things. Those names make sense.
There's a UFC fight night in Auckland on Feb 23rd
No fights confirmed yet
Hooker will likely headline against a good ish opponent. Lee, Felder, Cerrone?
Adesanya - zero chance. He's on ppv events for the foreseeable future
Hopefully Kai Kara-France can have a quick turnaround (he's got a fight in Dec)
An outside possibility of Whittaker? Unlikely, but he should be fighting around that time. Depends what level opponent they have for him next. A Till fight would probably be in London
Has anyone listened to the Erebus disaster podcast on Stuff?
Just wondering if it’s worth it.
A few TSFers had positive comments about it here:
Highlanders style when they were under these two was good. Direct and hard when needed but rapid when on a roll.
Don't forget JJ is renowned as a hard task master and demands toughness
They kicked more than other teams too. Contestable kicks and backing the defence was a big part of that season.
Very different from the possession game Japan played.
Am wondering if we can split the Bush fire posts from the climate debate ...
... I'd do it myself if I knew how.
Bush Fires thread is here now: https://www.forum.thesilverfern.com/topic/3602/aussie-bush-fires/
Only split the last two days.. couldn't be bothered going further back
Will leave in the Politics area because of questions about regulations, firebreaks etc
