Yeah I was never fussed about the Nonu incident and I don't think McKenzie is either. He just included it to strengthen his case through weight of numbers of examples.
Wow, just wow. That was one hell of a shield clash. Simply superb match.
That was one of the best Shield games I've seen in a long time. Awesome to see it going to teams and fans that really care about it, too - the crowd at Hamilton when Waikato lost it was pathetic. Dunedin put them to shame, and I expect the same from Napier.
This could be interesting.
The Beast and the du Plessies bros should utterly marmalise the Wobblies' front three, but what affect will the new scrum laws have?
If the Bok don't win at Suncorp today they never will.

Boks far too good and, if anything, more impressive than the ABs against us
Having said that, the ref's interpretation of the off-side law did us no favours as they were transgressing all night and should have been penalized out of the game
I also make this comment because Australia are ruthless at polishing off lower ranked teams.
I am 100% confident the Pumas will boss the Aussie scrum like they did to us. Hansen claimed it was a draw last night. But not really we won the second half scrummaging on points - but got monstered early in the game.
I also think the Pumas will win more line out ball with out that gawd awful hooker they had who thankfully dislocated his shoulder. Look for the Aussies to win by less than ten points. But still win.
All Blacks v Springboks. Hopefully a good game today
Good to have another rugby fan on board.
anyone see the shute shield final today? the dominance uni has over the rest of the comp is becoming a farce, how the **** can one team have 1 player contracted to a super rugby club and the other have contracted players coming off the bench?
Wow, what a match that was. Just superb physical confrontations from both teams.
Barrett really stood up as well as did Cane. Really showed the depth of NZ Rugby there.
Lost interest when it became 15 men against 14.
All Blacks proved they can't be beaten by trying to go over the top of them.
The All Blacks are still easily a step above them, and years ahead of Australia who seem to have gone massively backwards since McKenzie took over. They deserved to lose last night.
The home nations will be licking their lips against playing Australia on the end of year tour. I can't see them beating any of England, Ireland, Wales.
