Now given i didn't see the game I would have thought you would ask yourself where their defenders aren't and attack that area, ie., at the tackle where the ruck would be. Up the guts, draw in the defenders and stop them spreading.

RE: Six Nations 2017
@Crucial What ruck, though? My recollection is that the ref had already explicitly stated that there was "tackle only" at that particular breakdown. Not saying it wasn't a penalty, but logically Itoje's can't have been a ruck offence.
Didn’t see it but you can't play thecball when off your feet. Ruck or tackle.
RE: Black Caps v South Africa
I guess we're not travelling well now, Hesson.
He needs to make changes for ODI 4. Latham needs to be replaced before his test form goes to custard too.
Ummm ... we beat Aus (Ok Aus B ) and split two close ones v RSA. One fuck up isn't total disaster. (Wait till we do it twice ...)
RE: A plea to Fitzy
On the subject the Pommie dude commentating the Canes v Wolfies kept referring to Sah-vay-a. Eeek.
Different sport but a bugbear of mine on this side of the deetch is the Canberra player Josh Parparly. Papa'ali'i???
Surely it's easy enough to teach the pronunciation of short sounding vowels
Oou (How would you spell that ? )
then that you pronounce each vowel
and then try and make an effort.
A year or so back - must have been at the Under 20s (unless he'd played 7s?) - Tevita Lie was getting a run despite the NZer in commentary continually pronouncing it correctly.
And as an aside heard Jim the sportsguy on Sky News (Cullinan? Veitch's mate) telling us that "Mo-Anna" was a good movie.
