@jegga some of the lefties must be torn....
We need to sort out the homelessness...
We need to let in more refugees...
@stargazer Apoua really struggled for us at scrumtime last year, IIRC came on in one game as a sub, was getting demolished so was subbed off about 15mins later, barely saw him again after that game.
Seems handy with ball in hand though, but given scrumming is usually a strength of Southland...hopefully with some changes to technique he'll be sweet, just not against us!
@siam only as good as your last game....
Historically, the Highlanders only have a 39.1% winning ratio against the tahs, dropping to 33.3% in Aus.
Although Highlanders won 4 of the last 5 with 3 in Sydney.
Another thing the stats say, when the tahs win at home v Highlanders, it's 13+
I thought we werent meant to judge people by the colour of thier skin, but 'cept those times it suits an agenda?
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
so who was the last player who came back from the NH as good as they were or better than before they left.
Surely the last few seasons in NZ highlighted a couple of things about Nonu; in that it is usually the ABs that get the best out of him, and the other is that he is a Hurricane, not a Blue or Highlander (or Chief if that is where he is going now)
I guess the other thing you want from a returnign AB is one to be a mentor for those around him, given what we have heard of Nonu at super rugby level, is he the right person for that, or will he have changed significantly?
I'd much prefer to retain the impression I have of him in his last season for the ABs where he signed off as one of our greats.
