@Crucial Mind you, I don't recall commentators hardly ever calling tghe tackler's name anyway, or someone who has done grunt work, ie climbing of ground repeatedly. They do on odd occasion, and to be fair to them you can't name everyone involved while play is in motion.
True but this bloke made 20 tackles and you hardly heard his name.
@nostrildamus The game against the Blues will be interesting for sure. He is still playing his way back into form, would be really happy to see Macca Springer emerge to be of a similar caliber. When looking at a highlights reel of Will Jordan some of his tries are quite freakish.
Watched bits of this. Very puzzled by refereeing at the tackle. Reds had immunity to take out anyone and come in from any angle. I know many refs are now tolerant and rarely pull up attackers but I thought this was extreme. Commentary was a bit ott so I fast forwarded a lot. Interesting to see how Reds go v NZ teams with this tactic.
It's rugby. A couple of years ago it was the chiefs, for close to a decade it was the blues.
We're all getting a bit too dramatic when a team has an off season, even though it's regular as clockwork.
No helping out needed, the pendulum will swing, right?
i get what your saying but i dont think its that simple, some teams definitely have longer or higher highs, even when it was the blues you could see the potential, it was more of a "why aren't they better" kind of deal, huge population, major city more attractive to live in even had several all blacks that just weren't firing at super level.....dunedin cant claim those things when trying to attract new players
