Good on you for getting the tipping going again KP.
Sorry to hear about your Dad, Kia kaha mate.
Kobe Yamaha game is pretty good fun, BBBR was sort of phoning it in early but suddenly produced a cracking run to score right now.
Carter is still so classy - he’s old, but he’s done well against the Yamaha rush - stepped the rusher a few times, kicked a couple, and now they have more space. God I miss him.
Bucky looking a bit out of sorts.
The first Yamaha try was a cracker too - there is a bit more space and It’s less collision focused so it’s quite a good watch.
Interesting, however with AWS propping them up, I’m not so sure that Amazon is actually in any real trouble. That article does make it look like they’ll have some reasonable competition from Walmart though, which is good. Were the anti-trust guys to break up Amazon, things would change very quickly.
I see Winterbride is over here for the Railway on New Years day. $12 on TAB....nice futures bet IMHO
So Julius how good a story is that!?!?!
Had the futures bet on winterbride at $12 and a fair bit on the big boy too. So good to see him return from injury and still go beast mode
Winter bride a close second. Got smashed in to less than $3 too
Brilliant! My old man follows the ponys pretty hard, so we were all around the tv.
Good ride too.
Honestly, I think the problem is that we have to have an application process, rather than an appointment process.
I doubt that the public would be happy with the fish heads deciding who should be the coach, and them chasing that person (and their assistants).
Without that sort of procedure in place however, we may not get the applicants we want.
Personally I think that is the way to go - but that puts the CEO and board under pressure to get the right people, and then they should pay if it goes tits up.
@taniwharugby Thing about the Lions, was that it was a series that we could easily have won 3-0 - but for a couple of moments of indiscipline, plenty of injuries and the weird penalty at the end.
There were plenty of obvious reasons/excuses for the various defeats we suffered over the last couple of years, but it was obvious to everyone that we were going to need some luck or some genius coaching to get across the line at RWC2019 - the team simply wasn't close to as good as the 2015 version.
Agreed, but equally we could just as easily lost that series 2-1 thanks to selection, strategy, replacements, and tactics - all of which the coaching team should wear. I can’t really fault Hansen from 2012-2015 - it’s the best AB team we’ve ever had.
However, the post McCaw/Carter (Nonu/Smith/Kaino) rebuild has just not been that successful - we didn’t get the right people in the right places with enough experience early enough to be really there at the WC - as a result some pieces were able to be pretty easily exploited (I’m thinking Mo’unga’s defense here, for example). Also, apart from Cane, who incredibly wasn’t playing in that semi, none of those positions above were occupied by a dyed-on definite starter by the WC. That’s coaching and selection.
