ABs(37) vs Wales(25):Wales could have won, WTF !

Source: Wales could have won had they shown greater composure Ieuan Evans said Wales ‘could have’ won ! I remember Ieuan Evans, he ‘could have’ tackled, but he didn’t. Wales could not have won, ABs points tally was hindered by the pitch inability to remain sound during scum time. Hence the Welsh got many a […]

ABs(Heaps) vs Irish(F’all): A training run !

Well what to say… The ABs didn’t even have a sweat up until the Irish scored the first try of the game. They looked a bit bored ! Don’t believe me, compare the 2nd half with the 1st half. The Irish need to play the game for 80 minutes they same way they did in […]

SBW at 2nd Five, what does this mean for Rugby?

So Sonny Bill Williams seams to work well at 2nd five in the All Blacks. What does this mean for rugby? Has the new application of the current rugby laws meant that a kicking 2nd five is not longer needed (Remember when coaches would select two skilled 1st fives for the 1st and 2nd five […]

ABs(49) vs Scotland(3): No change in trend here !

Sonny Bill Williams looks more at home at 2nd five than center. Sorry Ma Nonu, I think your room mate just rolled you from the starting 15 ! SBW is a hand off master it seams, just like his league days, and just like his league days the intercept opportunities are there for the opposition. […]

Wayne Smith: Nutty Professor

Did you here about the full back that was made a center, then failed at it, as it was realised it takes years to learn that role,  and was dropped from the top team. This happened to MacDonald of Canterbury in the RWC 2003. Smith thinks Sonny Bill Williams should consider Blind Side (no 6), […]

ABs(26) vs England(16): England won 2nd half WTF !

SBW first test match with the big boys ! I will give a ‘well done’ to the ABs Coaches, they need to find out if the B team can cut it. You cant keep selecting players for the bench and not let them earn some playing stripes. Henry’s mob remembers all to well the RWC […]
