Why not have him in Angus' spot for the brumbies game, Angus to Argentina or have him do the all NZ game then Peyper to Argentina.
Trust SANZAR to make a mess of something so simple.
"We need leaders, no doubt about that. I'm unashamedly going to encourage the organisation to look for talent outside of the region."
How are they going to attract these 'leaders'?
For my mind, leaders are experienced players, they are struggling to attract much frontline up and coming players, let alone attracting established Super rugby players, and leaders at that.
As with others above, 1st 2 on the chopping block needs to be teflon-Redman and Hanks.
Chiefs side with BBBR & Cane are an entirely different beast than without, it also helps lift those around them.
I dont think any optimism by Chiefs fans is mis-guided (see my comment above) that said I expect the team is very grounded and will know they are in for a match that should be test match intensity.
@Jaguares4real the way you are talking, the Jaguares just need to turn up and they will win, yet you point as Chiefs optimism?
Reckon this could be the game of the round.
