    Pek Cowan, Will Genia and Digby Ioane are the 3 that come to mind.

    Genia and Ioane had outstanding games against England. The Wallabies are moving in the right direction and have a good bunch of young players.

    England have a bunch of old farts...

    ^ Pek Cowan is a NZ Maori. Digby Ioane was born in NZ, Will Genia is from PNG.

    ... plus Mark van Gisbergen, Henry Paul, and that other bloke, the reserve hooker (Hartley is it?), all in recent times too.

    They are no better than Aussie.The difference is, that we don't moan about our players being 'plundered'

    The weekend games were macabre basically as I thought the SH sides performances did not reflect their clear superiority and when you look at the final score lines.

    I must say that Lewis Moody was probably the best forward on the field ,stopping at least 2 Aussie tries on his own and the Welsh defended stoutly and to keep the final score respectable.

    I'm just annoyed that we poach crap players.

    Oh, Loy Toy; check your email.

    Watching the France Bokke game at home on TV5...strange rabble but it'll do.....

    13 - 11 at half time to SA. France started very physically and the Boks looked a bit sleepy, but from 10-30 just dominated as the french turened over way too much ball. Smit scored at easy try from a 5 yard line out. Then the french woke up and had a great spell. Morne steyn is in the bin and Habana should be in the bath.....

    Wales beating Samoa 14-6 at this time

    France out muscle the Boks in a great second half to win 20-13.

    Top fucking test match, everything you wanna see, recommend anyone to download it and enjoy.

    Only 2 yellows for the Boks tonight, but Habana will receive a ban for his petulant kicking of Clerc on the ground for sure.

    Wales beat Samoa 17-13 in an average friday night affair with the big boys in cotton wool.

    Damn, I purposely didn't watch because I thought it would be crap. Always the way.

    I think Jonno is leaning on the old boys a bit, hoping some of their ethos will rub off on the (available) future England core players.
    I like Thompson, i just wish he could throw straight with some consistency.
    Will we get the intense Jonny of old back in a white shirt, or the new improved, happy and relaxed Jonny?
    I don't think he ever enjoyed his rugby as much at Newcastle as he does now.

    I just read an interesting stat; apparently the All Blacks have not conceded a try on their Northern Hemisphere tours since 2006 (vs. France).

    Eight tests and 700mins of rugby! Not a single one from lst year's Grand Slam tour and noughts against Wales, Italy and England so far this year. Pretty impressive.

    Now if only they could get the attack flowing again.

    Good defensive game plan, but as you point out, you don't score many.

    Must be the woodward influence, nearly destroyed the game single handedly dontcha know?

    Fuuny...where is all this SH style we hear so much about, Wales seem to be the only team playing with flair, but then again, they always did, even when Woodward was about, but some people missed it.

    Well they're only 1 try per test from their last three (although others denied), way down on their usual strike-rate (and not too mention expectations).

    Don't know what the issue is though. The personnel's largely the same and many of the same players were scoring plenty at S14 level. Personally I'm just waiting for them to 'click', they'll be very hard to beat with that defensive game and an attack to match.

    Sadly I missed all games last weekend and only saw SA v France the week before.

    This weekend has some good games France v NZ, Wales v Australia and Ireland v SA. At least we won't have to watch England.

    What I'm saying, you precious bloody Welshman, is that it's not as though they aren't getting anywhere near the line.

    we get close to the line and don't score many times, it's called failure to score, get used to it and stop believing the All Blacks have a divine right to dominate and win every game.

    That attitude is the predominant reason that you have never won a 'full' World Cup!!!

    Oh FFS, give me strength.

    I'm about ready to give up trying to discuss rugby with you, you never take into account what I actually say only what you think I'm saying because apparently Kiwis are incapable of discussing rugby any other way to your mind.
