  • @Daffy-Jaffy

    No sign of Matty Lansdown still



  • @ARHS He is not listed as injured, maybe he travelled with the top team or is training with another super squad?



  • @Daffy-Jaffy said in Chiefs 2019:

    Mudzekenyedz

    That's quite a mouthful.

  • @Daffy-Jaffy On his Instagram he seems to just be sinking piss on the Waikato River so don't think he's with another squad.



  • Just saw on Matty Lansdown's Instagram that he did his ACL and he's on the recovery.



  • Cheers. That makes sense.



  • It doesn't look like Luteru Laulala will play any time soon, either.

    The University of Waikato Chiefs Under 20’s have been named to play the Hurricanes Under 20’s at FMG Stadium Waikato tomorrow as curtain raiser to the Gallagher Chiefs versus Sunwolves match.
    
    Kicking off at 5.00pm the University of Waikato Under 20’s will again be on the hunt to deliver another comprehensive performance tomorrow evening. The University of Waikato Chiefs Under 20’s last week sealed a 27-24 win over their northern rivals the Blues Under 20’s in a competitive and physical encounter.
    
    Four changes to the starting fifteen will all feature in the forward pack. Loosehead prop Wesley Tapueluleu moves from the bench to start in jersey number one. Gallagher Chiefs lock Fin Hoeata will combine with University of Waikato captain Tupou Vai’i in a tidy locking combination. Peni Finau moves to blindside with Jeriah Mua starting at openside flanker. 
    
    Other new additions in the 25 man squad include Bay of Plenty props Jonas Pomare and Benet Kumeroa in this week as cover alongside Gallagher Chiefs Luke Jacobson and Bay of Plenty midfielder Dennon Robinson.
    

    I have posted the Hurricanes U20 line-up here.

    If you notice players older than 20 in the squad: that's due to wildcards. See the text under the Hurricanes U20 line-up.



  • Luke Jacobson ? How old is he ?



  • @cgrant said in Chiefs 2019:

    Luke Jacobson ? How old is he ?



  • @Nepia he’s actually 21..not sure what’s he’s doing in an under 20s team



  • @Steven-Harris said in Chiefs 2019:

    @Nepia he’s actually 21..not sure what’s he’s doing in an under 20s team

    I suggest you and @cgrant read the last sentence under the team list.



  • @Stargazer it’s the fine print that always gets me..off to spec savers tomorrow
