RE: AB EOYT 2018
Doesn't feel like a Bledisloe test week. Could be because it's a dead rubber? Maybe because it is in Japan? Maybe because it's already Wednesday and Hansen hasn't baited Cheika yet.
Don't expect the last one to happen this week as the most rancid bait will be saved Eddie no doubt.
Plus the team hasn’t been named yet.
When is that by the way?
RE: New 'power play' rule in South Africa's Varsity Cup
Every team should play without a 10.
I'm not saying this because I'm a Blues fan...
RE: Auckland vs. North Harbour - The Battle of the Bridge
Sweet win, especially after last season. It's good to see us get a convincing win against a decent team going into the playoffs.
Loved seeing Papali'i thoroughly outplay Hunt, especially after Parsons saying earlier in the week that Hunt has been the best openside in the Mitre 10 Cup . He put on a masterclass yesterday and definitely deserved his AB call-up.
Faiane set the tone for us in that first half. That clean out to spring the Ruru try was beautiful. At the game you could see him barking at the forwards to get in there, but decided he had to do it himself. Needs to retain captaincy next season even if Gibson is healthy.
Usually this isn't funny, but Parsons giving a familiar losing interview at Eden Park made me laugh.

RE: Boxing Thread
@raznomore Yeah Briggs has still managed to keep himself in shape after all these years (with the help of drugs as well but lets be honest, they're all on the stuff), and people seem to have short memories about Tyson. He quit against a virtual nobody Kevin McBride and was stopped by barely British level Danny Williams 15 years ago ffs.
Comebacks like this never end well, hopefully he gets convinced not to go through with it, similar to when Nigel Benn tried to come back last year.
based on this, how much money for you to jump in the ring with Mike right now?
This reminds me of a friend who got a hiding from Ray Sefo back in the early 90s when Sefo use to be a bouncer. This was his pre-K-1 days and Sefo must've only been a light heavy/light cruiser at the time, so my mate started acting up because he thought he could take this small bouncer, but he had no idea who he was dealing with and got rightfully wrecked.
When he found out years later who Sefo was and had become, he began bragging about getting knocked out by him, and even became a fan.
RE: Blues 2020
Marchant is relishing being back at training after individual work during lockdown. His deal ends on July 1 so he is hoping to cram in as much as he can though he admits the non-stop preparation is unusual.
That's enough for 3 last games for us.
Hopefully he can convince Quins to let him finish out the season because our midfield depth isn't that great.
RE: Blues 2020
I wonder if they'll have a warm-up game. They can probably have an in-house game.

RE: NBA season 2019/20
With all this The Last Dance talk, I thought I'd pull out NBA Live 98 and give it a run. I didn't think I'd play too much of it because the graphics seemed laughable, but I can't stop playing it now. Just love the rosters on this game.
Jordan was never on these old NBA games because of licensing, although #89 is suppose to be him on this game, but that doesn't quite feel right. EA did provide info on how to create MJ for yourself though.
RE: Blues 2020
What's your point? Are you saying he is too short to play lock? He's done well there before
IIRC that was due to his excellent vertical leap. Maybe a bit of athleticism that may have reduced as he has aged?
Safe hands in the lineout though.
I would have taken him in the RWC squad easily, he's still a very good player with a huge workrate. Has become McCaw like in his running lines to the right place at the right time.
I cant see Bristol letting him go easily. He is the glue in that team. (who the fuck is Piutau?)
Was arrogant of NZ rugby to think he would be happy to stay here without encouragement. A bit of perserverance with him and he would have locked in the 6 jersey easily IMO.
Just some bum...
