Proposal: Site wide ban on the P word.

Feb 26 2015 01:11 AM | mooshld

The P word being POACH. Look I get it, I grew up playing when trys were worth 4 points and the rugby club was the beating heart of the community. I remember when it meant more to pull on the shirt of your country, then it did to do anything else in sport. But then everything changed and we got franchises and contracts, players associations and collective bargaining, image rights and sabbaticals. The world changed and it was us, the fans that have taken the longest to adjust to it. The top...

What do you want McCaw to do?

Feb 12 2015 11:05 PM | gollum

I'm looking at my life and wondering what the fuck happened now... Driven people suck! Born at the wrong time. What great adventures do we have to do? Discover the source of the nile, be first to the south pole? Climb everest? Nope. All gone. Can't even climb the pyramids these days without bribing a guard. You'd have to really go some to find a tribe that'd never seen a white man these days, tho' at least in the spirit of the great explorers you'd wipe them out with measels because Starburs...

What do you want McCaw to do?

Feb 12 2015 05:12 PM | mariner4life

While Richie is free to do what ever the fuck Richie wants (he's fucking earned it), it's sad just thinking about it. We're All Black fans, all of us (even Nick, he's just a self-hating All Black fan), and this glorious bastard has been front and centre of our team for ever. 14 years by the end of the world cup! and not just playing, dominating. Arguably the best player ever, probably our best captain, he's won absolutely everything, sometimes by himself. It's got to the point where he has tr...

NRL: Warriors - 2015 Preview

Jan 28 2015 08:48 PM | Sneakdefreak

When the NRL Auckland Nines tournament kicks off this weekend at Eden Park it will signal the start of the 20th season for the Warriors. Twenty years and not one single premiership title. None. Nada. Zippo. Not a single bloody thing in twenty bloody years of trying. Under 20s championships don’t count. It has been a rough patch for the Warriors since making the 2011 Grandfinal and the team will begin the season with its third head coach in four years. Andrew “Cappy” McFadden was what the team...

Article: RWC - A view from 11 months out

Dec 04 2014 08:42 PM | Tregaskis

Long time listener, first time caller etc. The ABs are the individual team most likely to win RWC, but I'd still say our chance of winning are no better than 50% even if things go right. We have strength all across the park, and if we avoid injuries to certain key players (A. Smith, Read, McCaw and Coles primarily) we have mental toughness in spades with the best veteran players and leaders. It is no small thing that we have the best away record of all the teams, by far, no matter which time...

RWC - A view from 11 months out

Dec 01 2014 02:48 PM | Crucial

As you may be aware, in 11 months’ time the 8th running of the Rugby World Cup will be over and photos of the victorious team holding ‘Wiremu’ will be all over the papers. So this far out what do we know? We know that we don’t know who will win, that’s for sure. The very nature and structure of the RWC means that a few bad minutes on the field or training paddock could result in an error, a decision, or an injury that has a big effect on a country’s chances. There are games to be played betw...
