    Haven't watch all the games this season but chiefs not looking that good to me. Canes look amazing.

    Chiefs looked pretty damn good running up 40 points to spank the Crusaders last weekend, but yeah their wins over the Blues and Brumbies were scratchy.
  4. BigGuns DA Astele

    Haha that's the game I didn't see. If that canes backline stays injury free they could go close.
  5. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Yeah our backline is immense but having to rest ABs twice could be costly as well. The lack of front row cover also is iffy but I really like our side and performance so far.
  6. BigGuns DA Astele

    Rest ABs, when does that happen. Kinda pretty much your whole backline.
  7. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Whenever the coach decides, so they'll spread it out. Nonu and Conrad have already rested once. I'd say a few will get rested next week against the Blues (boo for me - off to that game).
  8. Droos JP Rhodes

    Well, there goes all our predictions. Fuark.

    No shock in the Crim derby today tho, but.

    Man, QLD are a terrible team just now.

    Like the look of big Betham for the Tahs. Solid lad with bit of gas about him.

    Reds are poor.
  11. Fiery GR Smith

    Disgusting result for the Blues.

    JK must go.

    Not gonna get any easier for them next weekend away to the Hurricanes either.

    He won't be easy to dislodge sources say he spends a decent amount of time with senior management with a goal of ensuring his job security. He is good at some aspects of his job especially managing up.
  13. Fiery GR Smith

    So he's a brown-nose then?

    What do you mean by "managing up"?

    It's a corporate expression for managing your relationship with your boss - so that it is healthy. It can be a challenge when you have a boob for a boss.
  15. Fiery GR Smith

    He's very bullish. It's very easy to get away with poor results when coaching teams like Japan and Italy, who are expected to lose, but to coach the team with the biggest player base and lose 4 in a row and to lose to the worst team in the comp at home is not acceptable. Michael Redman needs to show some balls and get rid of him ASAP.
  16. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Tbf Kirwan did improve Japanese rugby so saying he got away with losing is a tad irrelevant.
  17. Fiery GR Smith

    No he didn't. He was coach in their disastrous 2011 World Cup campaign, where the aim was to beat Tonga and Canada. He failed at both and was then pushed out of the job.

    Nipponese do seem to have improved since the great man left, yes.

    Were top ten quite recently. May even still be, actually.
  19. Rego RS Hutchinson

    I don't think you got what I was getting at :p

    I think Kirwan screwed up the management of Benji, underplayed the talented ihaia (spelling?) west, and fucked around playing that Simon something a rather boy who would have been 17 years old at most at 1st five.

    He is a poor judge of talent.
