    All Blacks have been great for years now - totally professional and ruthless. The day may come when England find to men in the backs to challenge them - but not with those boys today.

    Kiwi - nice to see you on board.

    Hey guys.

    Tough loss. But then again Dan Carter was having one of his better days.

    Yeah, your boys got beaten, but it looks like you guys have a future with Jamie Noon at centre. Although I guess more youth could be used in the pack.

    Good luck against the Aussies though

    Meh, using American football terminology, I don't think Noon has much upside. You get what you see from him, he's just a very solid player. The entire team selection still baffles me, Corry at flanker, Cohen in the team at all, Balshaw playing when he's not 100% fit yet. Then the tactics are even worse and the execution was dreadful, why on earth our scrum half was going up on the crash from lineouts and diving on loose balls after lineouts (forwards' jobs) I have no idea.

    We don't play the Aussies (fortunately), we play the Argies this Saturday and then we've got two games against the Boks on the 18th and 25th.

    My bad. I assumed all the southern hemisphere teams would play the other northern ones.

    Forgot about those!

    The tri-nations (league) has turned into a glorified 13-on-13 boxing match the last few years, especially between the Kangaroos and the Kiwis.

    Willie Mason getting a one game ban is a disgrace, hope someone takes his head off the next time he hits the field, he wouldn't deserve anything less.

    David Kidwell nearly damn well did!

    The thing I don't get about Aussie league supporters though is after the Kidwell incident, almost all of them (including a very heated response from an Aus commentator) were calling for "dickhead Kidwell" and his head. But now that it is Willie Mason in the wrong, they're saying it is not so bad.

    True!!!!

    Kiwi - if you read through some of the other old threads you'll see that some of us are League and Union fans as well - helps us if the Ravens are not playing well!

    Yeah, I remember the previous All Blacks sesason helped me through last year's Ravens season.
    Although the Warriors did even worse than the Ravens, so not much help there!
