    "Get your tickets at Ticket Rocket"? WTF? Founder appears to have fled the country, Palmy North City Council have frozen one of their bank accounts, Hurricanes have laid a Police complaint re: non- payment of monies but, yeah, "Get Your Tickets At Ticket Rocket (Maybe They'll Turn Up)"

    Weber threw some pretty awful passes in that passage of play.

    That cough-up should be game. Slow scrum set, quick heel, kick the fucker out.

    Another week where George Bridge offers absolutely nothing. Wainui was far better.

    A good watch.

    It's tempting to say it wasn't really a day for wingers but, Yeah, he was probably the fourth-best starting winger out there.

    Felt like DMac and Gus were the only ones trying for the Tribe. The AB's shiny new captain was invisible and Cruden played like a poor man's Matt Toomua which is saying something. Weber was better than last week but was off his feet in the final 15. The weather in NZ is the only thing keeping me marginally happy about still being in lockdown here in Victoria.

    Cane invisible? I thought he was very good for a first game back. He tackled well, made metres running and forced a maul turnover right before halftime when the Crusaders looked like scoring.

    Didn’t see that turnover but you made me go have a quick scan of the stats. Only made 7 tackles and 10 runs for a total of 9 metres. Compare that to Harmon who made 14 tackles and 10m from 4 runs. Or Grace for 21(!) tackles and 6 runs for 13m.

    I go with Kiwi on this, I thought Cane had a good game, and made some good tackles and turnovers when needed, which most good players do. Thought Cruden went bloody well and apart from missing one high ball DMac was bloody good! Just proves we all look at different things we want from players is all!

    Highlights (such as they were):



    Standings (such as they allegedly are, look a bit dubious if you ask me):

    The weather undoubtedly had an effect, but there was a lot of fairly poor rugby on show today I thought. Some very poor handling on both sides and ill directed passes missing outside support players.

    Crusaders got there on the back of a 50/50 mid field bomb gone wrong for MacKenzie, and a piece of speculative play by Jordan. Otherwise, neither side looked likely to break the other's defensive line.

    ^ yeah, both teams guilty of playing a March weather game in late June. You'd think that by now someone would've realised that it seldom works but no, it happens every year until the penny drops again.

    Two bona fide Blues rugby legends absolutely dominating the individual points scoring records.

    Looks to me like one certain team has the same number of wins as the entire number of wins for the rest of the other teams combined
    You seem to have completely misspelt "dynastic" here.
