    Yay! Guitar is in tune this week…

    Love ya work boys. Cheers!

    Enjoyable pod, lads. Makes driving to work on a Monday bearable. To answer a question re the Aussie commentator on the weekend I’m pretty sure it’s David Lyons. He commentates the Top 14.

    • brumby runner

      Certainly was Lyons on BeIN.

      • Bobas

        yeah it was the same guy on SBS. Lyons ate his brain

    • Bobas

      I’m hoping it wasn’t Lyon’s on SBS with the Aussie accent… He didn’t retire with concussion did he?

      • USARugger

        After watching the game I’m pretty he was born with concussion

    The All Blacks have Dane Coles a former flanker as hooker. What do you think about making Hooper or McMahon a hooker, which will take time, but when the World Cup comes around in 2019, we will have 3 top backrowers on the field every game.

    • jamie

      Better off converting Pocock, at 110kg+, to Hooker.

      Saying that though, Andrew Ready was a 7 until Year 12, when this bloke named Liam Gill was his school side’s openside, so he moved.

      • Graham Leonard

        Good points Jamie, a bit of a problem with Pocock gone for a year, and while I am impressed with Ready, I just wonder how much game time he will get with Moore at the Reds.

        • jamie

          Funnily enough, I actually think, based purely on talent and where they are in their careers, Ready should get the starting jersey over Moore.

        • Graham Leonard

          Have to agree with you about Ready being the No 1 hooker for the Reds. If that happens then we don’t have to worry about converting Hooper or McMahon to the hooking position.

        • jamie

          I don’t mind competition for spots, but when our 2 or 3 best players are all openside flankers… Frustrating indeed.

          It’s also amazing to think that in 2014 we were down to our fifth-string hooker. Nowadays, our 5th string hooker would be considered (Moore, then TPN, then Latu, then Hansen) Ready or Roach. Both very, very good players. The NRC has improved depth dramatically in just a couple of years.
          Samu Kerevi, Tolu Latu, Sefa Naivalu, Taniela Tupou, even Godwin, all have benefited from playing in the NRC already.

    Guys, first time I’ve ever got my shit together and listened to this. Loved it!!! Well done!!!

  • Aron

    Blake sounds like Michael Clarke
