I think RTS will be in squad, not sure whether he will play against Irish, mind you when SBW came to NZ rugby he has already has a couple of seasons in France , so hard to judge where they are at similar stages.Was talking to my had-core Warriors fan bro-in-Law as to whether RTS should make the AB this year. My thoughts were that he's probably ahead of where SBW was at the same point in his career so I wouldn't be as unhappy with RTS being picked in the 36 mostly on potential as I was when SBW was picked almost entirely on potential. I haven't seen every LossBleus game this year so interested in the thoughts of those who have e.g. (but not just) @Dismal Pillock, @zer0, @KiwiM.
I kind of want the seppos to saunter in and completely misread the "humble AB brand" carry on and instead give it the full sickly seppo saccharine bollox treatment. Maybe a dedicated 24/7 AB TV channel full of womans weekly garbage haha. "Desperate Housewives of Dropped All Blacks" etc"The worry now is that if there is this sort of entertainment focus put on it, and the guys are encouraged to speak when they feel like it, we could have drama being swung around here. It takes 120 years to build a brand that's worth $3.5 billion. I don't think it will take much more than 112 days to destroy that and for the value to come shooting right down if we've got guys fighting internally or if the team is dogged by scandal because of social media nonsense going on."
Am finally coming around to him. Still dont see him as a game breaker but around the rucks he is kind of fantastic.I reckon Tupaea has the 12 jumper in his kit bag.
Agree on QT, he looks a good solid 12 rather than match winner at this stage.Am finally coming around to him. Still dont see him as a game breaker but around the rucks he is kind of fantastic.
Also, reports of the demise of Lurch AKA Guzzler AKA BBBR AKA Armageddon On Stilts may have been greatly exaggerated.
