Duckman- I believe kicking was also a large part of his employment too and that was yet another skill which eluded him at Cardiff 😉 Watching Sam play was painful because nothing and I mean nothing ever went right for him during a match for the Blues. It is a very second string Force side tomorrow so I think Sam Norton Knight’s inclusion is probably an indicator of the side as a whole…Posted 4 years agoduckmanMember
89 was like a throwback to an early 70’s visit to the high Veldt. Jones had such a case of angry little man I thought he was Scottish. Mind you any back row containing Finlay Calder is going to be punchy, making him skipper is just asking for trouble. Mans a legend, he was sacked as Stuarts Melville player/coach for commenting on a well upholstered young lady on the touchline while he under the posts waiting for the oppo to convert. Methinks the fire had somewhat left his belly by then. 😆Posted 4 years agoloumMember
Think I will go with Mr C Healey to be involved in a bit of handbags first today.
I agree, he’ll be the main target, he’s our best player.Posted 4 years ago
They’ll do what they can to avoid playing him in the tests.
Of today’s team, I’d say Johnny Sexton would be a marked man too, he looks pretty critical to the success of the series.
Might kick off if they have a go at Manu too. I reckon all of Oz would rather not play him, but with his fuse there’s more likely to be a bit of return.
Pack were good in the loose but should be scrummaging better and a few lineouts went astray. I know it is early but the set piece should be better it is one of the easier things to practice.
1/2ps place kicking was awesome.
Sexton and O’Brien were really good, Vunipola in the loose was a real handful. BOD and Manu worked well together.
It is going to be tough on the flanker that loses out to Warburton they have all been playing well particularly O’Brien and Tipuric.
Would Gatland play O’Brien at 8 with Tipuric and Warburton?Posted 4 years ago
Would Gatland play O’Brien at 8 with Tipuric and Warburton?
Hope not. Would play into Aussie hands imo if he went fast and loose. With the likely centres and wing options to bang it up the middle he’ll want a back row to keep it tight not stretch it and risk turn overs out wide.. I am assuming he’s going to use tic taks similar to the way wales play.
Does anyone know where someone might be able to download the game if they lacked moral fibre?
