  • @gt12 although Debreczeni is eligible for the ABs, so is a slightly different prospect...

    QC would need to be better than all other 10 options due to unavailability for ABs, although has every legal right to live and work in NZ.



  • @taniwharugby

    Absolutely, and Big Deb has height and size too, so has some future to develop. I still think he’ll play for Oz though.

    Anyway, I wouldn’t want QC unless we couldn’t find a reasonable 3rd option, but even then I think there are young 10s around we could develop.



  • From a purely selfish, Chiefs only perspective, i would take Quade. He's actually played pretty well this year, and is a better option that most of our 10s, can kick goals, and his nature would suit the way we play best.

    But, from an NZ rugby perspective, i don't want a pathway for a young player blocked. The more we lose off the top, the more we need to bring through from the bottom, so young NZ players need the opportunity to develop.

    Annoying? Niggly? Petulant?

    Kidding - I agree with you on both comments.

  • So in all games there's a neutral ref, except the Jaguares v Chiefs game. That game has been allocated to a former Chiefs players. Geez.



  • Glen Jackson for the Chiefs game, ffs SANZAAR.



  • He's known as Hometown, so that'll balance out, surely?



  • 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.

    It's almost like the criticism makes them lean into now.



  • Finally confirmed:



  • Bryn Hall has re-signed with the Crusaders for 2 more seasons.

    Former Chiefness balanced out by home town bias.

    Semis (highest ranked team to host):
    SF1: Winner QF1 v Winner QF2
    SF2: Winner QF3 v Winner QF4

    Not one game being played in the Republic this week and possibly zero for the entire finals series - this must be a first and a big disappointment to all fans over there.



  • @Stargazer As per the stuff article I agree,Jackson is definitely on a hiding to nothing..
    If the home side win, he’s gonna be accused of being a hometown official and if the chiefs win, a former chiefs player with a whistle .
    Very poor from Sanzar , a hospital pass if ever I saw one.



  • @Nevorian especially with 3 teams from that conference in the finals...



  • Daryl Gibson has stepped down as Tahs coach with 1 year left on his deal.

    I reckon he will be named the new Wallaby attack coach

    https://www.rugby.com.au/news/2019/06/20/super-waratahs

    The Waratahs are in the market for a new  coach for 2020 after Daryl Gibson stepped down with a year left on his contract.
    
    RUGBY.com.au understands Gibson informed NSW Rugby bosses and Waratahs players on Thursday of a decision to vacate his post.
    
    NSW Rugby have announced a press conference with Gibson and NSW Rugby CEO Andrew Hore on Friday afternoon at their Daceyville headquarters.
    


  • Does he have to financially compensate the NSW RFU for his breach of contract?
