    Just saw this statistic mentioned on CricInfo regarding Kane - pretty incredible.

    What a start to the season - the depth that is being built is unlike what we've seen before. It will be very interesting if Milne does well in the Big Bash how he might fit into the team.

    Hahaha, they're still on notice for me. But an improved performance. Don't forget Argentina made 10 changes to their team, so they weren't full strength. As others have said , seems to be a much more defensive game these days.

    Been calling for Jordan for a while now, should slot right in at 14 on the back of another successful Super Rugby season. Argentina were obviously fatigued, but Akira was immense - MOM for me. Every time he got the ball he got decent go forward, just what I've been looking for. The one...

    I was surprised by the Wallabies, think the weakness of their bench cost them in the end, especially with the rain. Such a shame we've missed out on the end of season UK/Europe tours, but some rugby is better than none :)

    Who you guys picking for tonight? Argentina or Australia? I'm thinking after Brisbane's performance and Rennie having had more time with his troops they'll run out winners by about 10 points.

    Test cricket at Pukekura Park would be so awesome. I have many great memories of driving up for domestic cricket there. https://www.stuff.co.nz/taranaki-daily-news/news/123434083/new-plymouths-pukekura-park-is-the-best-bet-for-cricket-tests

    I was saying the same thing the day before that semi that our forwards were going to cost us against England and I was proven correct. I've seen it coming a mile off that we're falling behind because we don't have a big enough power game. We want to play free-flowing rugby as we always have but...

    Ardie and Cane are world-class I agree, but in the modern power-game, you can't play both IMO. You need big hard-go-forward men around them.

    @Fuller Pilch said exactly what I was going to say. We need some no-nonsense mongrel in our forward pack that is going to give us some decent go forward. We haven't learnt from that semi-final defeat to England and is exactly why we nedeed new coaching staff with a fresh approach and not more...

    All Blacks definitely weak then I agree, but Australia had one of their best-ever teams (even their bench was world-class), and South Africa were beasts too. What gets me is we're playing arguably the weakest ever Australian team, an Argentina team that hadn't played in over a year and we're...

    As far as I'm aware, the only injury is Brodie Retallick, but as Fuller Pilch said, it was full strength. There's a lack of passion, in-game ownership and tactics, which I put down to the coaching staff. Fox Sports switched across to the SkyTV coverage after the game and apart from JK, I was...

    A team that doesn't play for over 400 days brings that... Incredible effort. What a performance and an amazing forward pack Argentina continue to breed. All Blacks era well and truly over now. Foster now with the worst win % in All Blacks history. Has there been a worse side than this one?

    Total shock, don't know quite what to say.
