RE: Happiness Scale
i think there has been a couple of threads that have touched on similar topics and im not really sure the best one so i'll stick this in here and move if needs be
so, i decided during lockdown last year i was going to get back into playing rugby, wife was working long hours and quite honestly i just got a bit lonely at night
found a club not too far away here in melbourne and preseason started training started late Jan.
jeez, a real wake up call, apparently jogging just doesn;t cut it on the fitness scales, having a proper conditioning coach is helping and can at least finish a session without having to take a break to "stretch"
some real trouble with knees/achilles/calf's as have had issues with them in the past. slowly coming right though through proper training
can i also just add the back of the lineout seem a lot further away that i remember from the last time i played!
preseason games started this week, if anyone wants to feel a but queasy i can provide photos of my back from the first game, black/blue and red
in general i feel good though, great to meet loads of new blokes ranging from the 20 years olds trying to go pro to some older hats waiting for the squads to sperate so the 3rds can spend at least one training run at the pub
and interesting development is the wife, started making comments about missing me being out 2-3 nights a weeks and Saturday games still on the horizon
will settle down i think as i have no expectations above the 3rds and so should get a night back a week
just interesting how things change a bit
RE: Highlanders v Brumbies
lovely day in the sun, biggest gripe was how poor RA handled promoting it, sitting next to some brumbies fans, they had come down for it and were shocked at how small the crowd was, pointed out there had been next to no advertising
Wore my old Dunedin RFC jersey and Fakatava and Vahaakolo came over for a photo, both seem like really good blokes, Freedom was just chatting away about how disappointing the results was, letting the fans down, but how thankful he was to be getting a shot at that level, even more of a fan
RE: Movie review thread...
Watched True Lies (Schwarzenegger & Jamie Lee Curtis) for the first time in a decade or so. Just a really, really fun movie.
4 Jamie Lee Curtis Stripteases out of 5 Spinal Tap drummers
love True Lies, highly underrated, one of the best comedy action films, also a very fun videogame
This could have gone in a few threads...might have already...not going to check
RE: The Cane vs Savea Debate
This argument that if we have a hard hitting 6 then we can afford to carry someone who is passive in the loose forwards is ridiculous.
not sure thats what people are saying?
We have seen the discussions here many times before where there is making tackles and dominant tackles, both have thier place, your 7 if he is playing for t/os isnt gonna go hunting for the big hits
So you end up with a flanker like Cockwomble. If your support and cleanout is on the job, his entire game is nullified and you're making yards.
There are far too many people who watch SR and think that translates to Tests.
thats offensive to my people

RE: Highlanders 2023
What about Hayden Parker? Not sure he's available, but he has left his Japanese club. No info yet about whether he's moving to another Top League One club.
Fletcher Smith? Same situation.
Maybe useful until the young ones are ready to take over?
I actually really rated fletcher smith …
RE: Super Rugby 2023
@KiwiMurph i can kind of understand Hotham with Nuggie and fakatava ahead of him...but we could give someone like leo-willie the 6 jersey pretty easily
edit: it actually really bugs we we've stuck with people like frizell when we could have given leo-willie a good run this year
RE: All Blacks v Ireland - 1st Test
@Kiwiwomble what else does he have to do this week?
He's off work, he got someone in to cover while he is isolating, only so much Netflix you can watch before trolling numpties on TSF takes over!
He probably should be reading coaching for dummies and rapid weight loss books.
Fat jokes never get old
no lightening up on the fat jokes then?
Only if he lightens up I guess
that might be your finest moment
