This is a bit cheeky of Erasmus given the brutal assault by Snyman on Retallic in the RC

Posted in: France World Cup opener 'all or nothing´: Medard See in context

I hope Argentina Win.... They should because they are hardened in the superior Rugby Championship... But mostly because I'd like to see a desperate France play against England. Despite all the hype, there is a chance England will fail to progress yet again... and let's be honest, we ALL want to see that!

well - good luck to them. They are a better team now (and with a better coach) than they were in 2015. But even then they are more likely to finish 4th than 2nd in their pool. 3rd place according to rankings. They will need either Ireland or Scotland to have a bad day and they will need one of those convenient Ref controversies that have plagued rugby since the last world cup.

Not impossible - and it would be amazing...and even with half a team of foreigners... it's still unlikely.

bit of a different story when they have 15 layers on the field. Time to send those French refs packing. They have presided over some of the worst errors in refereeing over the last 4 years. Time to put a SH ref in charge again

what a nonsense. They haven't beaten NZ in 70 years and their wouldn't be a ruby fan in the world who'd back wales to win a series against NZ.

That is such a good team. ABs are clearly foxing with tactics and selections at this point... but keeping the Bledisloe Cup for a 17th consecutive season is non-negotiable.

Posted in: Alarm at New Zealand's falling schoolboy rugby numbers See in context

There are a lot of reason for this. As someone who teaches at NZ's #1 ranked High school team I can tell you that the elite competition has taken over from the traditional role that the clubs once played in NZ. This has meant that the middle of the road high schools have turned away from rugby as their students don't want to face the endless thumpings that the top 20 or 30 teams give the when they play.

Whilst the numbers ARE dropping the level and professionalism is actually rising; and there is still a role for the great athlete that takes up rugby seriously at a later point. NZ certainly doesn't need to worry about this. It is simply the way professional rugby has evolved.

Posted in: Axing Sunwolves will damage Asian rugby: team CEO See in context

It was a failed experiment. SR needs to return to a round robin and means fewer teams. Last in, first out. Plus the sunwolves are like a foreign entity with some token Japanese players... who is it actually helping?

Posted in: In the aftermath of the mosque killings in New Zealand, there have been suggestions that the Canterbury Crusaders rugby union team change its name, in view of its historical religious connotations. What do you think? See in context

Under no circumstances at all should they change. NZ is a secular country (by majority) and pandering to religious beliefs is not called for

England were offside all day (as usual) - but they played well for 25 minutes, The ABs adjusted (as they are want to do) and the points came, just as England's point scoring ground to a halt.
