    He is, but his reputation has suffered for being an All Black in this era I think. His supreme ability has been muddied in the eyes of a lot of fans by the preciousness and entitlement that surrounds...
  2. Old Dog's "the Mods have become a complete jokeshop" thread.

    We've closed a few threads before on the basis that a discussion had clearly run its course, and all was being achieved was posters getting irked with each other. It's not unprecedented that we just...

    Left Hand Stranger Pale Ale tonight. A bit disappointing at the price mark, to be honest. Not a bad beer, just a bit easy going at a premium price on draft. Probably makes a lot more sense in the US...

    Very hard to tell where individual players are until the pack get it right as a unit. Are BJ's issues his or a front five unit problem? And, with questions around the breakdown, how do we assess the...

    Hard to speculate on what might happen when we haven't a clue who will be picked, or how they'll attempt to play. Can't remember the last time there was this much ambiguity about what the first XV...

    I'm really to that stressed about perceived selection issues. We've an awful lot of lads knocking about the squad who've been due some sort of breakthrough for as long as I can remember. They need to...

    I don't see any reason to get too upset about who we give a run to in a pre-season friendly.

    And what changes, from players available, would have represented "taking the league seriously" vs...

    I'm not sure. We've seen performances where our pack look comfortable but he's visibly slowing down play. And his basic passing, even without severe pressure, is often inaccurate.

    There's a solid body of performances that tell us where Murray is as a player, and which performances are aberrations. The same is true of Williams.

    There's a fundamental nonsense about people wearing high performance technical fabrics when all they're doing is watching. Or drinking.

    That said, maybe we should be...

    Hmm...I'd disagree with that. McCaw is, on one level, the best ever specialist open side. At the same time, though, he'll do anything required of the other two.

    There's still variation, but it's...

    That was certainly my impression - there's combined, and there's single.

    Which possibly means that MP single venue ST holders get better value in a way....(runs away very quickly..)

    Is there room for combined, both singles and ten years at TP in the event of a home QF? Or would there be a lottery?

    I don't know how what our allocation share is.
