Residency rule has been increased to five years to end project players

Should be increased to 10 but it's a start

Thankfully NZR doesn't need project players or fictitious grannys. Granny gate was the lowest point in rugby eligibility history.

You're right, the loss of Shane Howarth to NZR must have really hurt but what do you expect from Kiwis eh. Laugh

Thank goodness for the Bachops that the IRB were so understanding.

Ah Sinkinson, another Kiwi.

NZers in glass houses really shouldn't throw stones. I mean the fact all these Kiwis - unable to play at home due to an oddly PI based selection policy - were forced abroad is one thing and then there is the the strange rules that allowed sivivatu and Lauaki to play for their birth nation AND NZ Shocked

But the turd of the lot is NZ rugby league tsk tsk....Fien for starters and then Bennett resigned. These NZ rugby boys, just all seem to be up to no good. Shocked

Unfortunately the WRU were lead to believe by all sorts of Kiwis that they were eligible to play. I see that as the responsibility of the player i.e. he knows where his grandparents were born and can't expect the WRU to know otherwise if told he has a Welsh granny and actually I think they are all pretty shocking for bringing the great Wales shirt into the sort of disrepute by using sharp practices well used in their homeland to muddy the waters about who is eligible to play for whom, a la Bachups et al.

But really you should leave Englishman Colin Charvis out of this, we're talking Kiwi cheats.

I really should bite my lip but...Dean Richards, the ultimate rugby cheat!!

its touching how you are trying to curry support from Cyril while resorting to more personal and really lame attacks on my Granny but then you mocked autism didn't you until the post was taken down. You clearly know no shame.

I'm sure Gwlad's granny is a lovely lady (probably English) but it just goes to show that that sometimes sense skips a generation or two.

Fine with me. The issue is of course Gabs returning to NZ and since he turned the Chiefs down for 2018 I would say it is very much on the cards that he could go pre RWC; much may depend on his success in NZ now.

Look if he is receiving offers it is because the word is out that he may be looking. He may stay in Wales for 2019 and then return, he may return to NZ sooner. Nobody really knows except him.

Perhaps he's had a change of heart and wants to be in a position to give his boy a best shot at the AB jersey as soon as he can now he's playing Super rugby.

I would.

True. Mark Anscombe tried his best (starting Jr at #10 for NZ U20 & Auckland) but ultimately Garreth wasn't close to being good enough and moved on.


With Dave Rennie & Tony Brown moving on from the Chiefs & Highlanders respectively come August the time could be right for Gatland - if he wants a shot at succeeding Hansen he'd need to get into one of those roles.

Nope. I suggested that it'd be a daft idea for anyone to try that.

I then hypothesised based on your Gatland-to-NZ suggestion up-thread re. the soon to be vacant Super Rugby roles.

Granted that'd be a bit messy given the length of Gatland's WRU contract. And I'm sure the WRU want plenty more time to find a prospective successor who isn't Howley.

My mistake I just read

'Mark Anscombe tried his best etc" and stupidly thought you were suggesting Gats would do the same. Silly me.

I think Gats being in Wales for the last 8 years shows just how independent his son's progression has been from familial influence, with the additional context that Gats seems to be regarded pretty poorly by Kiwis (well on here at least) I can't see his influence on his son being a good thing and think he is clever enough to know to distance himself.

I do increasingly think that a return to NZ is on the cards and should he win this tour I think he will realize that it is his time to return and start working towards his ultimate objective - his ambition is clear - to coach the All Blacks.

I just meant he might want to be in NZ at a time his son is forging a career in the sport and he could miss that. It's a big deal for a Dad, where coaching Wales and the Lions is just a job, something he could do here, and he's been around that scene for 'decades'.

Bryn is 22 yes...I think that means he has missed his formative years as a player, to be honest I think it's a tough call to have been away for long but it tells you about his drive and ambition.

Ooh I dunno, for the same reasons fathers take their kids every weekend to play sport, to see them thrive, support their dreams perhaps? Plus he's probably got a bit of inside information on what it takes to play at the top perhaps.

Mustn't have been easy getting to this level while Gats has been on the other side of the planet most of the time. I know he's here often cos we get to hear about him falling off ladders and things at Christmas but must be difficult not watching him play.

 Good to see you going out on a limb with your predictions, you could probably put money on it that he will return to New Zealand especially as his family live here. Its probably not helping him achieve his goals by persisting with Wales.

Yeah Allty and a bit selfish really. One's career is important but when you only see your family 3 or 4 times a year you have to wonder whether it's been worth it. What's it been, 10+ years? Good on him, he's more Welsh than kiwi now probably despite a bit of occasional DIY at Waihi beach.

 Not sad at all, some parents make sacrifices for the benefit of their children, in this case Warren regarded it as more important that Brynn remain in New Zealand where he could get quality rugby coaching and a quality rugby education.

Haven't Schmidt and Cotter been away from NZ as long/longer than Gatland? Cotter is overrated by some in the NH and further down the pecking order than Great Gats. Schmidt is a good coach, but like Gatland would probably need a S15 stint before getting to coach the All Blacks.

I keep hearing how Scotland's players aren't all that good and that as a team they are better than the sum of their parts. In addition I hear that the Welsh players are superstars who are just poorly coached.

Doesn't that obliterate your argument?

if cotter can get scotland to 5th in the world with only 2 players worthy of lions selection hes the best coach in the world

I imagine he'll return to his job in Wales before going S15 in 2019 and then All Blacks.

 Gwlad's imagination tells him that Gatland will be coach of the All blacks in 2019, then again Gwlads imagination is very busy. I doubt if anyone else agrees with him though.

Nope. He's rarely in the picture here. Too long away from NZ rugby. No NZ coach has stayed away that long. The trend is to get international experience to get a different perspective then come back and try your luck.

That's what Henry and Hansen did.

Gatland kept taking offers and extending contracts, taking the big northern dollars until perhaps thinking he'll just fall into the AB position.

Doesnt work that way.

He should have joined the queue at Super level, and probably still can. He could have put his hand up for the struggling Blues role over the last decade or so and perhaps made a difference here.

But until he cuts it at Super rugby, he's not going any further. He needs to prove he can coach, select and win at NZs style of rugby, with NZ players.
