Re: Kangaroos & Kiwis line-ups

The first try disallowed surely was a bad decision. Of course the middle of the inflated ball touches the ground first - and that was in the field of play, a split second before the outside of the ball touches the touchline, so should been a try. I barracked for the Kiwis after that.

I'd have him at WTs in a flash... Overrated lol... It wasn't his night, he wasn't on his pat
So would I - but, I still think he's overrated. Doesn't mean he's not a very good player.

Will Chambers is having a good laugh tonight. Mitchell is a poser.
Highly doubt Chambers was having a laugh. He would still be laying on his therapist's couch in the foetal position sobbing about the 80 minute turkey-slapping Latrell gave him in the biggest game of the year. He embarrassed him :lol: . And then basically took his spot in the Test team. Poor Will, couldnt happen to a better bloke.

Sweet comeback :roll:
Would rather be in Latrell's position than Willy's at this point in time that's for sure.

Agreed. He is overrated - especially defensively.

I can't stand Johns' commentary. He goes into orgasms of delight whenever Mitchell touches the ball. But he doesn't notice when Manu beats him one on one to score and then when Mitchell fails to lock Manu up and Manu gets a great pass away for Rapana to score. Mitchell also dropped the ball in space and the Kiwis scored in the next set of six.
Manu's defence was aslo found wanting in the first 15 mins when Australia ran everything at the Kiwis right side. Holmes try came from very bad defence by both Manu and Rapana. They blew another try down that side about 5 mins later when both Manu and Rapana drifted in again leaving Mitchell unmarked. It was lucky the Kiwis controlled possesion from that point on as Aust could have run up 20 points down that side with an even share of the ball. Having said that Manu played all over Mitchell.

You'r right. But the Kiwis defensive problems were more to do with lack of understanding and mis-reads in defence. That was probably a consequence of lack of game time together. On the other hand, Mitchell was struggling to cope with Manu one-on-one, such that Manu, heavily marked, scored on try (that wasn't on) and set up another (that wasn't on).

Of the two young Roosters, it was Manu who came out of the test with his reputation enhanced.

Nah, not as good as your one where the bloke who got shamed in the GF would be laughing at the bloke who owned him. That was a doozy!

And that is a one off which the Kiwis have always had the capacity to achieve,. The day to day grind of NRL football is very different.
I have no dog in this fight but didn't he win a premiership?

Had to grind away all season. Dumb comment.

:roll: :roll:
He's talking about the Warriors in the NRL basically the Kiwi side with a few ring ins not Madge..and he's right ..they don't handle the grind of NRL week in week out..

Wise up..
Not one word about the Warriors in this whole thread. Back to sleep Geo.
I'm awake...You need to learn how to read between the lines Col ..Paws never mentioned Madge either rather Kiwi players in the test squad the majority of which play for the Warriors NRL team...they do get up for games but fall short with the grind year after year...

Any mention of the Junior Kiwis v Kangaroos?
Probably deserves a post on its own, so many talented players on show in that game on Saturday and absolute Cracker.
Note# not one are contracted Wests Tigers players, hopefully our new crop get there in a couple of years time.
