I tipped 20, little worried at 14-0 but suspected Brums would come back a bit...last 10 could be telling, big 70mins from RikkiTikki Tavi...


How did you........


?


It's ok. That's not the first time I've heard that moniker tonight. Coincidence. That's all.

I agree and wondered if it would be a 4th yellow.

I too would not have been surprised to see a penalty but in his defense he was trying to charge down the chip

42-0 in the 2nd half

Brumbies were great for about 10 minutes and scored 21 points. but otherwise :thumbdown:

It just shows the poor state of Aussie rugby at present. The almost liked like they weren't even trying in the 2nd half.

I wouldn't go that far. That was a seriously good performance once the Canes clicked there...

This is going to seem a bit of an odd observation, but I don't think the Canes were playing what was in front of them there.

They were playing the Lions.

This bodes well. NZ Super teams already have their eye on those games.

That 2nd 20 minutes of the game was weird, but that 2nd half from the Canes was just amazing, and against the top team in the Aussie comp just shows how far down Aussie rugby has gone....

I'll be interested to see how the Canes scrum goes against the Lions.

Great first 15 and second half, clearly thought it was gonna be a cake walk early and went to sleep. Had to be reminded the hard work still needed to be done. Ricky was superb, I thought Blade was very good while he was on too. Aso was superb, and BB threatening all the time.

TJP showing what an important part of any team he is, great to see him and A Smith in commanding form. It's all about the halves and with BB and Cruden, plus TJP, Smith and TKB on top of their games the AB selectors will be stoked in that area.

All this without Coles, Fats, Broadhurst, Proctor and NMS. :thumbup:

Yay! Good games from everyone but especially Beaudy, Perenara, Abbott, Ardie, Aso, JTA and Riccitelli.

With Nathan Harris being made out of glass, the AB selectors must be having a close look at Riccitelli. He's in really good form. :thumbup:

You feel very confident about Jordie lining up a shot at goal. Second only to Banks for our country's best.

As an AB fan I'd still like to see BB kick - but he's a 70% career kicker and Jordie is 80%+, so it's hard to ignore.

BB is playing out of his freaking mind right now, tho. Sweet Christmas, he's so full of confidence, and his decision making on the fly is amazeballs. Really is a joy to watch.

I think the BAILs are going to get a shock playing Soup sides instead of Provincial teams...

The Yellow card was brutal, the Lions should take note. BB against a backline with a man down....

That was 14 points. Then the gifted try from the brainfart chip kick which really felt like game over. I can't remember after what try the Brumbies fluffed the kickoff but that was also a key moment. Lack of leadership in the Brumbies it would seem.

Checking seriously for off-side at kicks?

This. Never. Happens.

Clearly this is one area where RL looks way more professional in terms of on and off-ground officials' scrutiny.

Given that a kick is on the cards every five tackles in RL and given a kick to the corner is a bolted-in-place tactic dating from several decades back, RL officials have this nailed. They will go over video footage relentlessly in determining the location of the first attacking player to touch the kicked ball.

Rugby oafishials turn their heads away, metaphorically speaking, and just wave it through.

It's hard to pick a MOTM off that. BB was great, Aso benefitted greatly and 3 tries is hard to ignore. Ardie was strong as usual. Riccitelli had one of his better games. Jordie and his perfect kicking game....

BB was the difference between the 2 teams, but have to give the nod to Aso tonight.

Yes, another Porirua boy. He's 26 now, so he's just entering his prime years as a prop.

Yeah.His shite scrummaging and face-pulling for the cameras from the subs bench used to do my head in.

Now he's Carl Hayman 2.0.

No doubt, but an actor is not needed for a post match studio conversation. The cuzzie bro persona f**k grates, and offers nothing to the game analysis.

Age. 26 now. Some props take a little longer to step up. But he looks in prime condition this year. He has bulked up a lot so might be taking the whole thing a lot more seriously now

Well strong form in 2013 got him capped then he had a bit of set back with some continuous injuries and ended up back-up to Ben May for some weird reason. But then was very strong last year as well with his focus shifting from ball in hand to the wet work. Canes never lost a scrum last year with JTA, Coles and Reggie as the front row.

yeah, like I said, we were spared that particular indignity so I can't comment but any unqualified personnel in the sheds tends to piss me off..."let's ask this passing tramp what he thought of the match..."
