“What are we going to do about Bryce?”
The defense rests… very nice Sam
Bit harsh to suggest the kiwi commentators are one-sided. Compared to the Aussie ones they are pretty impartial. Seriously.
Bryce didn’t do well, but he’s still not challenging Stu Dickinson for the “You Ruined the Spectacle Bro” title. His run of yellow card fever will never be forgotten.
Reds didn’t deserve to win in Christchurch – Crusaders did enough. Reds have improved though and may well edge the Chiefs at home.
Reds and Brumbies are great to watch. For the other Aussies teams, if your name hasn’t been already mentioned start rebuilding phase now.
You should have stopped at “kiwis are one eyed”
If only more referee’s would use the yellow card, we would have more running rugby instead of teams winning without even scoring a try like the Crusaders last weekend.
Couldn’t agree more with that comment.
Saying that any rugby player is deserving of an injury, or more deserving of an injury than another, is in pretty poor taste. Otherwise, great stuff as per usual!
Yeah they should put something in the title that suggests that more care could be taken when preparing these clips.
No mate there is a line which has been breached. I agree joking about wishing injury to anyone is just not cool.
Harden up princess, he didn’t specifically wish injury on anyone.
Yeah yeah, but, no. Some bad taste in a joke is ok, otherwise southpark wouldn’t be ok. Each to their own. I thought it didn’t cross the line. TMO!?!
I liked the title reference.
My first impression of that eye gouge on Higger’s was how is it accidental when he has his hand in that position? But on second look he could have been reaching to slap at the ball….the rugby ball not higger’s eyeball. Still he missed pretty badly.
Yet again a disproportionate amount of attention on the reds (50%). Crapped on about the worst game of the round for 3 minutes and used the other 3 to briskly quip about all the rest. Makes me think you should post on red and red rugby not green and gold.
This persistent notion that tries are the be all and end all of rugby? Perhaps you should just watch league with its cheap thrill, a try every other set of six, skill-less, monotonous appeal and be done with it. I personally love the game they play in heaven!
I find watching a bloke line up for a kick at goal to be fairly boring myself
Well then I feel sorry for you. I find it intriguing which for me adds to the whole theatre of the spectacle.
No one wants to see just 3 pointers of course but then again one of the best games I ever saw was the 99 semi between wallabies and the boks. There were no tries there. Great game!!!!
Realist in nearly every blog you seem to rant about the northern brothers why are you so angry towards them. Is it because you’re jealous or did they just steal your lollipop?
lollipop….. but also because queenslanders give the rest of us a bad name through their simplistic parochial idiocy, their misguided arrogance and their opinionated deluded red neck take on the world which often is expressed in their humour or in general conspiracy theories which leads them to believe that ‘the referees are out to get us!’ which causes the rest of us aussies to frequently use the term, ‘queenslanders are as mad as cut snakes’ a term internationally made famous in Bill Bryson’s ‘Down Under’.
This all of course stems from the ‘bubble’ that Queensland and its inhabitants self impose in order to prevent any intellectual or cultural progressional viewpoint from ever requiring any of them to ‘have a good hard look at themselves’. And of course the psyche is perpetuated from the inflated self worth they get from sporting victories like the ‘state of origin’ which they place significant dis-proportionate importance on in lieu of the fact that ultimately nothing else of a cultural value comes out of Queensland.
thanks for asking
Funny, Realist, because that rant pretty much tars you with the same brush that you applied to Queenslanders: arrogant, close-minded, prejudiced and ignorant.
There’s a lot of good-natured and witty ribbing not only between the states, but across the dutch and with those across the Indian Ocean. I’d like to think that your posts fall into the ‘I’ve had too many cans after tonight’s Tahs game’ category, but the timestamps tell me otherwise… so instead I’ll hope that you’re trolling.
Dave yes i know its ironic and condescending but that doesn’t stop it from being true and therefore funny.
the difference between me and the average qlder is that my arrogance is not based on which state i am from. It’s based on the fact that i personally think i’m better than everyone else. I thought about seeing the dalai lama about it but i thought sod that he should be seeing me.
The theatrical spectacle of goalkicking? Ever since Johny Wilkinson, goalkickers, with a few graceful exceptions look like constipated chickens trying to lay the fucking egg not kick it.
Must make for an interesting interior dialogue as they approach the ball: “You are my firstborn, now I kick you in the head.”
Dear the Realist
Why so angry? If you look carefully you will see word humour in the tag line….
Does someone need a hug?
muffy stop cracking on to me
I think you’ll find this is not prepared exclusively for GAGR but shared on the site as it’s a bit of light hearted fun and a good laugh. This no doubt takes significant amounts of time to put together for no personal gain so I think the people having a whinge should just lighten up a bit.
Aside from talent and a sense of humour, nothing’s stopping you from producing your own vid. So off you go. We await your contribution next week.
There were 24 penalties in the game. That’s only a little above average Sam.
If you don’t want to watch a game that has penalties don’t watch rugby. Or perhaps rugby should just be a free for all with no referee? Just a game of Kill the Dill with the Pill?
The rules are important-no doubt about it but i would rather watch (and play) a game of free flowing rugby rather than a penalty fest
Then blame the players. They’re the ones that infringe.
No, the players do what the referee’s allow them to get away with.
Penalise & sin bin them & they stop doing it.
The point isn’t the number of penalties, it’s the way they sit in the game. Bryce Lawrence is, quite clearly, the world’s least in form ref. Last year he ran a game of ‘Kill the Dill with the Pill’. Bok fans complained that he was biased, as he didn’t ping BamBam enough, yet Bam himself was almost decapitated by Burger directly in Bryce’s view, with no punished given. So Bryce’s issue isn’t the penalty count. It’s his complete lack of any form of consistency, his inability to read the flow of a game, and his occasional cyclopic tendencies. He’s Kaplan, but worse. Worse because Kaplan knows the laws of the game, and just chose odd times to enforce them. Lawrence has no idea of the laws of the game, and picks odd times to enforce what he thinks the law is.
Even though I’m happy to say I don’t believe Bryce is biased (I don’t think he’s not smart enough to be biased!), it’s still not a good look when a Kiwi ref runs a game in NZ where a Kiwi team gets a penalty count of 17-7. And where some penalties were clearly wrong.
Funny cos the weekly super xv review on skysports rugby club made no mention of poor refereeing on that game nor has it once made mention of poor refereeing AT ALL! That is because they are purely neutral and there just is no issue with the refereeing at this level! Aussies lets stop whinging about the refs!
No, that would be because over there an existing game is one decided by penalties & goal kicks with no tries whatsoever.
Clearly you’ve never seen Bryce referee. Missed the quarters of the RWC did you?
How about you request Bryce for the 6 Nations & Heineken Cup, then we can sit back & watch while he ensures that anything that resembles rugby is blown out of the park along with the pea in his whistle.
Do yourself a favour & actually watch a game Bryce has reffed, before telling those that have there is no problem. That’s like saying Ashton Kutcher is an actor, just because he’s been in a movie!
That should have read “an exciting game”
Cheerleaders? They are to rugby what Mexican waves are to cricket. I don’t need it, and my kids doesn’t need it. If you want naked chicks, they have some on the internet.
I admit my eldest son is already getting to like the idea of cheerleaders – but that was nothing compared to my wife’s face when she realised he was watching bikini gridiron!
Totally agree, they aren’t entertaining at the best of times. To be honest I just feel sorry for them and anyone who gets excited by them.
I remember the Reds tried the cheerleader thing ten years ago. Suboptimal.
And on a tangent, why do the NSWRU run those shitty HSBC competitions during half time at waratahs games? Surely giving local juniors a run would not only be a great experience for the kids, but would encourage more families to come along, and the crowd gets really involved .
Jeez, why so serious everyone?
Lighten up, it’s Friday!!!
I personally loved it Sam, PTT just keeps getting better.
Well done Sam. It’s a joke and I get it. You put it together and so are entitled to your opinion. OK, once it’s out there, people can and will criticize. That is the beauty and danger of the internet – anonymous vitriol. So you are a braver man that all those that whinge and bitch about what you posted. Keep it up.
