@gt12 yeah, the kicking game is a bit of a worry. Never been a real strength of Beauden's, though his little brother might be able to take some heat off in that regard when back. Someone else mentioned it (may have been you) but am surprised DMac hasn't been used more to clear the line, he has a pretty accurate punt from what I can see.
Sunday: Eldest has made relay team for state swimming championships so have decided that Sunday swimming at 50 metre pool is back on. Both of us did 20 laps and youngest 12. Was really enjoyable and we all slept soundly. I was in bed by 8:30.
Today: Chest. Up nice and early and gym was empty. Usual chest stuff. Benchpress, Incline press, cable crossovers etc.
Really happy with the way things are progressing from the absolute low point. Problem is I'm spending a month in Norway from mid December so training and eating are likely to be crap. Maybe there'll be a heap of snow so I can roll heaps of snow balls, pull sleds or some shit.
If Shields plays for England, I'll swallow my knob.
Better rope this area off and move the children to a safe space then. Things are about to get NSWF
I'm staying right fucken here, no way i'm missing this.
Suddenly Sheild's departure has become a whole lot more interesting. I wouldn't say him making the English squad is outside the realms of possibility. We've had a few avatar changes and hats eaten on the fern, could this be the first knob swallowing? Unlikely..but no more unlikely than FABSH from a few years back
The largest four companies by market capitalisation globally as of the end of Q2 2017 globally were Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft and Amazon. Facebook is eight. Together, these five companies generate over half a trillion dollars in revenue per annum. That's equivalent to about half of Australia's entire GDP. And many of these companies are still growing revenue at rates of 30% or more per annum.
These are exactly the sorts of companies that we need to be building.
With our population of 24 million and labour force of 12 million, there’s no other industry that can deliver long term productivity and wealth multipliers like technology. Today Australia's economy is in the stone age. Literally.
By comparison, Australia's top 10 companies are a bank, a bank, a bank, a mine, a bank, a biotechnology company (yay!), a conglomerate of mines and supermarkets, a monopoly telephone company, a supermarket and a bank.
what amazing jobs Hansen and Foster have. They must be thinking "one more match then we have 7 months off. On full pay. Just like last year. And the year before that. Sidle up the stands to snooze through a couple of Super Rugby games, potter around the garden, watch the telly, eat a few pies, then June rolls around and hello, the court of public opinion, who've been watching the entire Super Rugby season anyway, have pretty much picked the AB team for us. Doddle through June, bit rusty, have a bit of a run around, bit of work through August and September then hello, November again, cushy end of year junket up north, finest hotels, blah blah, fuck the rugby, we'll play any old how and call it 'rebuilding' or 'keeping the powder dry' and bobs yer uncle, season over, time for another 7 months at home parked up on the Lazyboy again"
@nepia@Crucial I dunno about you guys, but I count making poor offensive decisions and compounding it by being ragdolled like MN5 trying to show rugby knowledge as utter shit. If it was Ben Blair you fellas would be all over it.
Beauden threw forward passes, made a host of shit kicks, and showed no penetration at first receiver. However being on the end of an SBW offload and nice DMac line and he's a MOTM contender?
Apparently BB is allowed to run hot and cold. But DMac has to only run hot?
Funny I think the same thing about Cane. Cane gave away a dumb penalty and yellow card, made no turnovers that I can recall and didn't make an exceptional number of tackles. He just seems to always automatically get a third vote even if he is very ineffectual.
He barely got any votes in this game. When are the other games you feel he was ineffectual?
SO hotel gynm was shit. Managed 30mins on the bike and some abs work but that was it.
Didnt train friday either.
Sunday - family walk as usual so got an extra 10,000 steps or so in.
This week is another short week as golf tournament friday. 36 holes so lots of steps in but no time for gym in the morning.
This morning was PULL
BB high pulls - 5 sets
Lat pulldowns - 4 sets incl drop set to finish
Bent over T bar row - 4 sets incl drop set
Seated row (widegrip) - 4 sets
Straight arm pulldowns (rope) - 4 sets
Cable side raises - 3 drop sets superset with facepulls
EZ bar curls superset with DB hammer curls - 3 sets
Abs work was hanging leg raises super set with weighted side bends (3 sets) and then some medicine ball crunches superset with leg drops (3 sets again)
Off to see Toulon vs Racing at the famous Stade Félix Mayol. Nonu & Fekitoa in the centres for Toulon. Hopefully should be good, 18000 seats and the famous Toulon chant Pilou Pilou. It’s a wee trip with my Swiss rugby team.
Finally, a DC film that was a hoot to watch. Sure, the SF on the bad guy weren't much chop, and it was a fairly predictable, unthreatening scenario for our heroes (when two of the five are effectively gods), but this was as good as a lot of the Marvel gear IMHO.
I thought the levity was actually a plus. Barry Allen made that movie for me with his totally awkward shit and wide-eyed innocence. And of course, I was watching Gal Gadot thigh's just as closely as Mrs TA was watching those shirtless freakozoids. She is stunning.
