    I think POC leaves a bigger hole, largely because he's still delivering at the highest level.

    I disagree. He may want to broaden his experience for his own sake, but I can't see that a guy who's worked with Kidney, O'Sullivan, Gatland, Penney, Fisher, Foley, McGahan, Schmidt, Kiss, Gaffney,...

    Anyone with an Internet connection knows. It's a bit embarrassing to see Assange holding forth as if he were revealing top secret info.

    Looks more likely the stronger Labour poll, as they won't need the SNP block to get them over the line.

    He's caught somewhere between the look of a man who fears he's going to be found out any second and the look of a man who has tried to sneak out a fart and now thinks he might have followed through.

    On a badge level, yes, but the general tendency to get abusive about female politicians' appearances? What else would you call it?

    It might even be forgivable if it was particularly personal, like...

    But they were still playing for Fiji. I generally don't think that there's as many "poached" players playing for NZ as some imagine.

    Can you name a handful bar Sivivatu? I think the constant referencing of NZ picking Islanders is a bit of a misunderstanding of how those communities work.

    I'd give my left hand for a pint of Sierra Nevada. Possibly the right one as well as long as they could provide a straw.
