Yeah, it seems an odd one. Studying at Vic and training with Canes development team but contracted to the Bay. It makes sense that he should start coming back as we near the NPC season I think.

RE: Crusaders v Highlanders (QF)
Also fuck tony brown ... saying he's happy to be playing the crusaders and has some tricks up his sleeve... totally out coached by Robertson
Why so snippy, you guys won.
Tony Brown was pretty magnanimous in his half time speech, he said that the Highlanders hadn't been able to execute their plan and the Crusaders had played well. Then he said if they can't turn it round then they were beaten by a better team.
RE: TV Serieseseses
@Nepia haha you said last year was the last season...but I read a list of shows ending this season and The Americans was on it!
Yeah, I was 100% wrong last year.
Definitely a final season in 2018. It was cancelled this year, but after the 2018 season.
RE: TV Serieseseses
Finished what I thought was going to be the final season of The Americans....
Season was good as usual, however if was the last episode ever, was the WORST finale ever!
Did you catch my disease? There is another season .... Which I think is the last.
Apparently some fans didn't like the change in the tone of this season but I thought it was good too.
RE: Stormers V Chiefs
BBBR is far from his usual form. Is he carrying an injury or is he just tired ? He did not seem too concerned by the game while Mitch Brown is too small for a lock. That second row was outplayed by Du Toit and Etzebeth and this is one of the reasons why the Chiefs played so badly today.
Retallick got through a mountain of work. There were a couple of times where he made hit up and then got up and made another one from the next ruck. Brown definitely shouldn't be playing lock.
Just finished watching the game, it was a nail biter, like a test match.
How good for Stevenson to come on and have his first touch of the ball scoring the winning try. I'm actually surprised he has been starting in this back end of the season.
I like how Cane talked Peyper into penalising Carr - every other captain is doing it these days so we may as well get on board.
RE: NRL 2017
Quite an exciting finish to it. Warriors down by 6 with time almost up and put up a bomb after five tackles. They seemed to have recovered possession and were close to the Cowboys' line, but a pass was picked off and the Cowboys wing, Bowen, ran the length of the pitch to score. I went from thinking, "this is actually on" to "oh sh!t" in about a second!
Your post reads like it's the first time you've seen the Warriors play ... they were always going to lose.
RE: Re: Movie review thread...
Just saw the Trailer for Dunkirk. Looks like a cracking film. Great cast. Also looking forward to Kingsman 2.
Not often you can meld great cast/clever dialogue/excellent action.
Dunkirk is great. Much of the main cast is unknowns although Hardy and the BFG/Bridge of Spies guys are really good. Nolan plays around with the timeline a wee bit and people expecting a pure action film like SPR/BoB will be disappointed.
RE: Hurricanes v Crusaders
Ha!! pretty easy to be fitter than ever when you were pretty average to begin with!! But I don't think that's quite what they meant aye
It does make me wonder how different rugby and league training differs around cardio and weights. Sure league revolves around the tackle count cycle, but players still have to manage multiple repeat sets quite often. So they definitely have that multi-phase challenge like we see in rugby.
2 words, Bro culture
Laumape in particular is a different athlete to when he was playing league,. Much leaner and far more dynamic as a result.
That's not true, Laumape was a machine for the Warriors but he was just injured all the time.
It is true
Chris Boyd was on Radio Sport a couple of weeks ago before the 3rd test.... said that he was so unfit when he came to them it's taken a couple of years to get him up to a good standard.
Also, the warriors decided to let him go and sign Konrad Hurrell, jeez he must have been a machine.
Really? I wonder if that was due to his injury time? He was easily the best centre at the Warriors, and dynamic, but just too injured. I don't think the Warriors really 'let' him go, he said he was always going to return to rugby, and he wanted to be closer to his kid(s).
