I'm very impressed with Colin the M. Very very good innings. Both Colins have been good this summer.

Sucks to be a test specialist in NZ though...
Regular income, very part time work, low performance expectation, some travel, free gym membership.
I'd probably take it.
you missed criticised in job performance by every muggins on the internet with little to no idea about facing seriously fast bowling on greentops
I'd take it too I reckon
tenet, maxim, notion, i'm not here to argue semantics
Yeah, I think it's a NH thing that is tryign to be pushed here. If people stump up cash and attend a live rugby game, I'm happy for them to support their team, boo the other team, yell at the refs and generally have a good time.
Respect the kicker? Stuff that!
Maybe nick the rugby tenet, respect the kicker, respect the server. Once the ball's in play it's all on
What Rugby tenet? If I've paid to be in the crowd, I'm entitled to offer advice to kickers before they kick. They can deal with it, it's why we go to live sport
RE: Defining Who We Are ... NZ All Blacks
I'm not sure why Piatau would be getting any criticism. Was he supposed to commit completely to NZ and then get the same treatment that Jane and Dagg got with the 2015 RWC selection? No one owes anyone anything.
He copped it from the coaches as they had a verbal agreement. The reporting suggested he'd signed but not returned the contract, and then a telephone number arrived from Europe. It blindsided NZRU and the ABs, and they were super pissed about it.
I don't blame him, but you're going to cop heat if you play hardball like that. I suspect that loss of trust was what kept him out of teh ABs and had them militate against him.
As a Blues fan, I'd love Piutau and Toeava still playing for us. So much of our talent winds up overseas or at other franchises
RE: Solar Power and Storage - a nerd's view
Interesting article on big batteries on the network in Australia.
They have a massive stabilising effect, and seem to bring other opportunities into play (slower response to peturbations are possible, with the batteries carrying the short term slack).
