Can I lead this week ? Honestly, how do they decide who gets this honour?
Rather speaks to Barretts belief in his kicking if you ask me........ I mean, why bother for like 3-4 feet closer?
I cant recall the last time I saw a straight scrum feed in an International match.
Was funny listening to the NZ comms go on about a particular boks lineout throw being not straight. Many Lineout throws are not straight, yes even those by NZ, and rarely called.
Agree to disagree. From the side cheap shot deliberately going out to injure someone. Snymans a grub and I expect to see a lot more thuggery from him multiple times a game
the most senior player of Maori decent and in the rare case there hasn't been someone of Maori decent able to do it the captain has
Is this still the case Jabby? I remember reading that Zinzan Brooke led the haka on his debut for the ABs for the reason you give, but thought in recent years they had relaxed that and it was now player nominated (for whatever reasons they have).
So they nominate Perenara everytime then? Even when TJ's on the bench, he's leading the Haka. Actually, I can't remember someone else leading the last 2 years...
Aaron Smith led the haka against Argentina....
In general though aye if they think there’s some who is effective at it they will choose that person, so I guess it is more meritocratic in a sense now.
