Perhaps. I thought he should have certainly 'won' a penalty when he was tackled off the ball at the conclusion of the final All Blacks scrum but, as South Africa know, referees are far less likely to award such a penalty when it could decide the outcome of the game.

I do really dislike those theatrics that are creeping into the game, though. Perchance the referee could punish the actor?
i saw those theatrics a few times this weekend, not only danny Care.

Can't pinpoint those instances off hand, but thought it deserved a reprimand from the referees.

Another is this new method halfbacks use to "collect" the ball in preparation before the box kick. It slows down play and in my opinion are illegal.

Are you talking about this absurdly long 'tail' at the back of a ruck so there's virtually no chance of the scrum half getting charged down? I know why teams do it, but I still don't like it. If you take so long over a box kick that you get charged down, then so be it. Practise. Get better.

Scrum halfs are allowed now to.move with their hands to make the process quicker ironically. Once it's picked up is when it is deemed out. Or once it's beyond the back foot of course.

Yes that is half the issue, orchestrating the forwards for what feels like eons just to "feel protected"

But there were a number of incidents where halfbacks deliberately fall over exiting players from the ruck. In one instance the halfback had to reach back in a position to do a pushup just to connect with the exiting player.

Yawn, another Irish tour. Wonder if we can top the 60 nil of the last tour. On the cards as by then Ireland will have been replaced at 2 for a couple of years. Usually the case. We never seem to get these teams when theyre the so called pick of the crop.

We should have got England when they toured ozzie, we should have got Ireland this year but then i guess if we did they wouldnt have had those results. Since the three test tours started in 2012 with Ireland, theyve all been here, france twice....not a single test won or drawn from any of them. Needed the Lions to win the only one test...

At least the RC throws up some interesting results. The NH tours here and the AIs? Yawn...they need to lift the game on these tours, perhaps that Irish dominance will change things? thumbsup

Taylor, why you wishing away this century so soon?

There was a time when no man had walked on the moon. I was already alive then - the stone age.

But then Stanley Kubrick tricks came along and the world changed. Cool

I always like to use interesting words, Luckless. OK Words are the nicest of people.

Genia was doing it against Wales.

It depends on whether Schmidt is still in the job. If he is I fancy Ireland to nick a win.

A lot of yawning. Are you tired?

Ha ha, thise little anecdotes are really just for guns who seems to like to scurrell away at the basement level.

Got my doubts about neil and his boys anyway. I prefer the Elliot Gould version from the documentary Capricorn One, mind you, that helicopter pilot looked familiar. Loved the ‘Mums on the roof joke’!.

Yes, i guess without the kiwi coach theyre hopeless huh? Fair enough. Who knows, in three years you might have a dozen more Okee’s qualify residentially by then, then you could front with a haka then itll all be on. Then the team could all meet their whanau afterwards and discuss their whakapapa.. Sounds great. thumbsup

Irelands squad has the same number of residency qualified players as New Zealand's. There was a good debate on this on rugby on off the ball.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1LkaItTlPs

There is a certain level of hypocrisy shown by New Zealanders that was quite well debated by the OTB team.

Interestingly Gregor Paul New Zealand's favourite journalist did concede that the ABs were dirty in the test in 2016.

Except when you get them in theyre fully qualified professionals, All Blacks, and superxv winners before they start their residence. You get them after theyve been through our system when theyre packaged, labelled, texted and proven. We get them when theyre a kid. Youve never seemed to have understood that part huh? Pretty simple really. You get the shiny new offroader with trophies on it, we get a bunch of scrap metal.

And Ill say they were dirty, dirty good, and theyll be that way this weekend. Stop playing the gormless victim and harden up. This aint tiddly winks...well, might be for your side, perhaps thats the problem.
