@Higgins to me, he looks more around the 6,3 mark, but he is a sizeable human being..they tend to blow out some of these stats in my opinion ..especially our good mate Ken Laban when he’s commentating ..

RE: Super Rugby 2020
@Stargazer regardless of these being pre season games, there’s some very well constructed tries especially in the first game..hard to believe we are watching South African teams compared to what they dished up only a few years ago..ball handling at times was superb..!
RE: Northland 2020
Had it confirmed to me that Ponsonby and Auckland Dev First Five Johnny Cooper , son of former Northland winger Percy Cooper has been signed by the Taniwha for the 2020 season, however he will play through with Ponsonby until June until he completes his study ..
RE: Crusaders 2020
Spoke to a good friend who is close to Scott Robertson last night , apparently Robertson said the process was a complete waste of his time, he got the impression the NZRFU had already well and truly made their minds up.
One particular comment to a question got Scott Robertson’s back up big time and quite frankly I thought as an organisation we were a lot better than this..
He was asked a question in and around his philosophy and the processes he would bring to the All Black coaching role ..after explaining what he would bring to the table, Graham Henry barked across the table in a patronising voice ,“well that’s a real Crusaders way of doing things..!.
Are you bloody kidding me..?, the smug former All Black coach who should never have been on this panel shows his true colours ..I thought we had moved on from this sort of behaviour..
Well Mr Henry the Crusaders way of doing things seemed to work really well under Robertson’s watch 3 x years in a row and he did not have the luxury of having McCaw and Carter..
Just rather confirms to me once again how farcical this process has been..
Can you imagine how stupid they are going to look if Robertson leads the Saders to another title and Foster has a shocker in his first dig..!
RE: Cricket: NZ vs Aus
@hydro11 man for man they are much better team, the extra pace their bowlers generated had our batsman struggling with the extra bounce as well compared to out bowlers who did not look threatening..Wagner bowled with a ton of heart,but their were lot of deliveries that the batsmen did not have to play at and that was a common theme.
