Too many Canes 😉
Its an issue the Canes have now.
@muddyriver Define vulnerable. Given there are still cases where young people without co-morbidities die. What mortality rate is acceptable?
I suspect playing God with decisions like these is a lot more difficult for politicians than making them from the comfort of a keyboard (not having a go at you BTW).
Evidence to date is that any solution that relies on everyone doing the right thing for the common good is doomed to fail.
Out walking last night almost everyone had slipped straight back into social distancing but with more masks worn but to counter that you have the selfish pricks who fled Auckland ahead of the lockdown because of; ya know the inconvenience of it all.
I hear this.
When you are deciding an acceptable mortality rate, please include a close family member(Wife/Husband or kid) as a death as one of these and still see if that mortality rate is acceptable.
So why not reduce the speed limit to 40 MPH. After all this would save lives. Or ban rugby as this will protect people from injury some serious that will affect a person for life. Or close down all unhealthy food outlets. Let the nanny state go wild. The other option is education or advise and accepting variations in life where our rights and freedoms are maintained. We are all different and especially the young don't want to be treated like children who can't enjoy life.
My view is giving up our right and freedoms to MAYBE buy a little safety is a recipe for disaster. It just won't end. Already the economy has been ruined. And lives with it. I'm older now. Its up to me to protect myself. Not ruin healthy law abiding citizens lives to maybe protect me. I can stay inside and wear a mask and self isolate if I wish
@Daffy-Jaffy Strong attention to detail in the coaching group when one of the players had to tell them that Marvel Stadium has a roof.......
I am just imagining the forward thinking how the fuck do the coaches not know it has a roof as they start to plan for wet weather rugby. Fuck me.
And then tell everyone
There are solutions. Like
NZers to vote for a party that respects our right and freedoms (hopefully there is one) in the coming election. For example the right of a healthy law abiding citizen to go about their business without a Govt using any excuse to remove them. But if we collectively applaud as they are all removed. The future will get worse.
Bunch of idiots, can't see anything but a continuation of the downward slide we are currently on.
Brad Mooar (if confirmed) is not a huge surprise. I've heard that Razor and him don't really get along.
Razor is a long way from ready for this job. Key for him is to leave the safe CRUSADERS / Canterbury environment and to get some overseas experience. And mature a bit
The matchday 23 is as follows (test caps in brackets):
Very safe Team, happy for Clarke, Sotutu and Vaa'i . The only thing out of the ordinary is Reiko at Centre and ALB on the bench.
Reiko is a good selection at center. The odd selection is BB at FB and JB on the wing. I would prefer Clarke starting, JB at FB and BB in the reserves. Either BB starts at 1st or in the reserves. And I'm unsure if Goodhue is the best option at 2nd 5. Maybe ALB is a better option
I feel a bit sorry for Holland after his after match interview. He's so clearly totally out of his depth. But seems like a good enough guy. I just can't see him righting things though as he hasn't a clue
I could point him in the right direction (as many could) but maybe hes too head strong to listen to wiser heads Not me but experienced ex coaches within the Canes region. And that's what he (and Gibbes) must do
@Canes4life like both those 15s. Good back up in a lot of positions.
Now can you do the team Holland will pick? Haha.
if fit 5 starters not in the first team will be almost certain
Perenara, Proctor, Blackwell, Savea and Prinsep.
Just further on Procter. I was saying pretty much the same thing about his brother at the same stage of his career and he turned out to be excellent, then buggered off, so give it 3 or so years I guess...
Like his brother he offered little on attack. Good defender though. Both were / are good defenders
