    Everyone bitching and moaning about the "biased" ref have clearly forgotten how he didn't sin bin Naholo for that blatant knock down.

    So, in the end I got 1 prediction for the week straight up wrong, and that was the Blues vs Landers game. Whilst I tipped the Force to win in the prediction games that I play, I mentioned that I immediately knew it was wrong, so technically I was right. :p

    The Sharks and Stormers were both impressive. Highly impressed by the young Du Preez twins in that Sharks pack. The Lions struggled more than they should have and made way too many soft errors.

    The Tahs really should have beaten the Reds further.

    Canes (bias, eat me)

  5. Fiery GR Smith

    Reckon Argentina will beat the Sharks
  6. Droos JP Rhodes

    Agree with all except the obvious blindman pick. :p
  7. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Haha yeah, on paper you'd definitely say Canes, especially now since Naholo is out with a broken leg but after last week, you'd say Landers. Maybe the thrashing was what the Canes needed.
  8. Droos JP Rhodes

    Gay penalty try. Fuuuuu ref!

    Awful game of rugby between the Crusaders and Blues
  10. Fiery GR Smith

    Much better rugby being played in Australia than the dire game I just watched from NZ. The Blues were back to there woeful ways.

    Brumbies v Waratahs 8-8 at HT
  11. Rego RS Hutchinson

    I reckon the Landers could have made them look a lot better too. I just don't see them being the powerhouses like they were last year.
  12. Fiery GR Smith

    None of the NZ teams have impressed me yet. Brumbies were far and away the best team in the first round.
  13. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Higher concentration of Australia's top players in the Tahs and Brumbies where as the NZ sides a lot more evenly spread with regards to all blacks?
  14. Fiery GR Smith

    Something like that. I think there might even be some general complacency across all NZ teams after the All Blacks dominated in the World Cup tbh. I did think the Brumbies looked a lot better prepared and fitter than the Canes last week...or any of the NZ teams
  15. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Yeah it's exactly this, the Brumbies XV could just about be the Aus squad tbh. Join the 2 and you have the Wallabies. Brumbies should reach the playoffs, no excuses.
  16. Fiery GR Smith

    Brumbies impressive again. Their fitness in the last 20 minutes has been telling in the first 2 games
  17. Fiery GR Smith

    Great game between the Canes and Landers. Landers get up by 1, Couldn't decide which game to watch, switching between this and the Warriors comeback

    You mean Landers by 1....fucking poor finish
  19. Fiery GR Smith

    Typo fixed
  20. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Lol @ the Chiefs. Injuries hurting them really hard. Could be bottom of the table for NZ conference IMO.
