Is there any online radio commentary that isn’t geo blocked in nz?
Edit - found one, had to register on cricket.com.au
Worst part is , do they actually understand the ref may be right ?
What the fuck are they actually protesting about and what do they hope to achieve. ?
I don’t think it has much to do with the game anymore.. the later evening crowd is just enjoying the disruption and anti social behaviour. It’s a really scummy group out there right now
Most other groups would have been dispersed. The cops are waiting it out because they are worried about violence.. which makes sense when there is no negative media coverage. That lack of negativity means there is no pressure for them to do their job
Tough shit for the thousands that live in the city and pay the cops salaries..
so there is a protest on Queens Street right now by Tongan fans...
3rd night of ignorant cunts honking their horns for hours on end. It went on for 7 hours last night and we are at 5 hours so far tonight.
Oh cool the media is talking up the
Where are the police? Well it’s a bit like the hecklers veto but this time with the fear of violence.
Just remembered that the Blues have already signed Kirckpatrick as a replacement for Black, so their total of 39 should be correct. But he's from Wellington, so not sure who Auckland's 15th player at the Blues is.
There seems to be a screw up in the Auckland numbers. Auckland has 18 SR players and 14 at the Blues according to the Auckland website (that count includes Ruru)
Hopefully not. It discredits the event from the get-go. Makes it seem like more of a jokeshop tournament than it already is.
It's a preseason semi serious giggle
Fringe players, an older guy and a handful of the top team seems about right to me.
Most of the top players won't gain much from playing and then there is the injury risk
I don't get why people want this to be a super serious tournament. Enjoy it (or don't) for what it is
Matich - for super rugby in the highly competitive loosie position, I think 6 is where he may need to play, possibly a fraction small for 8, although you cannot fault his workrate, versatility or commitment
Matich probably the most unlucky one on that list. If Taramai hadn't regained form for Harbour he would have been a useful option at the Blues.
At the next level up I think he might be more of a 7 who can cover 8
taking our total to 10, which is surely a record?
That must be a record.
For context consider Waikato. They only have 7 (I'm counting Messam) players in the Chiefs and I don't think many (if any?) in the other squads. A few seasons ago it would have been unthinkable that Northland would have more SR representation than Waikato
