Jeez. Do your homework folks.
1) Take a closer look at Huget. He dropped a sitter from Michoko's cross kick early on. He missed simple tackles (no change from v Aus in 2010). He should have passed to Szar for his 1st try and was guilty of carrying the ball 1 handed.
2) Mermoz in an IC. He plays and indeed played at 12 during the game. Fritz played outside him at 13. At least Mermoz actually was worth a shout in your team.

@Trinats hmmm SBW or QC I know who I would rather have in my team. Anyway you don't have to worry too much cos the Wannabies have only 3 games to lose against SBW and the AB's before he heads back your way and plays the game that Queenslanders are actually pretty good at.

I read all about Danny cares great game on pr. Then I watched the match, albeit, just the last 40, I saw crappy kicks, even worse option taking and not much else.
Aaron smith had the ab backline humming against my beloved Irish, at one point he picked up an Irish forward and drove him back in the tackle. I didn't realize it was him until the tackle was over and was quite surprised.
This website name should be changed to England rugby, to better reflect the sentiments of its writers and team of the week selectors.

@trinats, cheer up buddy, im sure you can be just as talented as him if you tried...no need to shoot anyone down for no reason.

I know Ireland were killed but I thought donnacha Ryan was unreal.

I know Ireland got killed but I still thought donnacha Ryan was unreal. Only player that actually stood up for Ireland

PR please explain why Waldrom was picked as your No 8 twice in 2 weeks. Credibility on the line here.
Was he influential in the result - no he wasn't even influential. Most players are "all over the park" esp. the forwards as they need to get to the breakdown???
NOT ONE AUSTRALIAN - hahahahaha
Did Ireland stop trying - no they were simply stopped from trying
Posted 10:09 26th June 2012
I reckon PR have a crush on SBW ? Photo from Cleo with his Samoan tats !!! C'mon.
Woooohooo he scored two tries. Didn't watch this game, but last time he did it was against Japan ? He always plays well against poor teams, including Super 15 and League, but goes missing against decent opposition, just goes to show how poor Ireland were and not how good NZ were ? IMHO !!!
No Aussie deserved to be in the team, they were very poor, so good to see.
To have Poms in there, You wouldn't be one yourself Adam ?

Totally agree with you (did'nt see the Bok v England game), i was trying to make light of the horrible situation with the irish rugby team.No full time professional side should be on the wrong side of such a trashing these are dark days for our national side.

The Adam Kyriakou comedy show....coming to a venue near you. Just make sure you're out of town when it hits!
The default team should have been NZ and where there were stand-out performers from other teams last weekend, then maybe consider inserting the stand-out player. And then go with the AB! Not often a top tier nation gets 60-NIL!
No way should any England players be in this team - none of them were very good, just like none of the Boks were very good (and the selections show that, Beast looks like a consolation pick to me).
Posted 09:33 26th June 2012
1-15 should be nz. That's the team/players of the week. The fact that England squeezed a few players in there after that ghastly show is just ridiculous...
No Boks - true reflection.

You say: ""Lots of people getting carried away with that drubbing of Ireland""
Perhaps. But answer me these questions if you will:
1. When did you last see a better team performance?
2. When did you last see a better level of skills?
I know some people would argue, regarding the first question, that the opposition was weak. So:
3. When did you last see anyone beat Ireland like that?

Best wishes to you Adam Kyriacou from Australia.
Posted 06:58 26th June 2012
are you actually joking?! this actually has me hot under the collar. bottom line, moron, know nothing. poms draw a terrible game and they get players at 9 and 8 taking aaron smiths place who was almost man of the match and richie who was brilliant and had his best game of the series. fools running the show i swear.
Posted 06:23 26th June 2012
Yes SA threw quite a few experimentals into the mix in the last game, but a brave man would call them poor. Lots of people getting carried away with that drubbing of Ireland, me thinks there will be a few upsets in the upcoming 4N.
Posted 05:40 26th June 2012
seems like a good team! but i won't make any comments on who i think should be in and who shouldnt be as i didnt watch all the games.
I see bokavenger is trying to wind people up...ill let you starve
Posted 04:02 26th June 2012
@Stag91 - Yea I agree, I even get a little nervous when I see him running the ball up. It's such a small thing too & someone really needs to get on to him about as he could be an impressive runner.
Posted 03:32 26th June 2012
I think we should look at Thomas Waldrom's friends list on Facebook... I'm sure we'll find Adam Kyriacou's name there.
Posted 01:09 26th June 2012
that team needs a few more kiwis in it frankly
Posted 00:32 26th June 2012
Bokavenger, look at it this way, if you think all those players were awesome and your team only drew then look out when they play poorly.
