Stupid thing to say in the media what he said today.
Basically said there will be no bolters from the ITM cup in the All Black squad.
The gap is too big he claims.

Why do I have a problem with it? you have to give the aspiring players in the ITM cup hope of selection. Thats like a kick in the balls.

Especially seeing as both Aaron Smith and Aaron Cruden made the AB's in the past couple of seasons largely due to the exceptional ITM cup form

You can even throw in Beauden Barrett as a more recent example

Thats right.....also what is he going to do if he gets a couple of injuries in positions where the AB's aren't deep?

The ABs suck. South Africa easily beat them if their kicking boots were on in Dunedin.

The only gap that is too big is Hanson's fool from having his head stuck up there.

What a friggin tool...

lol IF, if this, if that. you could make an argument for any team if you use if's. If australia had the talent, if they had the fitness, if they had the coaching, they could beat us.

doesn't mean garbage son, whoever plays better on the day wins.

why did south africa lose to aus and draw with argentina if they are so good lol? maybe if they played some better footy they might have won those games.


As for Hansen's comment don't really see the problem with it, the form has been pretty mud this year and if there is exceptional talent the scouts will always end up finding them.

the lack of air turbulence in the house of horrors is all part of the plan. I hope all AB home games verse SA are held at forsyth.

AB's suck?? that is a mighty bold claim - im sensing your a saf africa backer - so then sir.. which union team is better?? the one that relies on thier kicking game, or the one that wins by scoring tries??

antarctica. we have a joker. nuff said.

Yes, I was. I got SAF +10.5 in-game. Easy money, thanks.

Please put eveything you have on the points the ABs will lay in their coming match in SAF. I want and need to know you'll be out on a financial limb for that contest. Thanks in advance.

Cause SAF pick spots to perform in. Unlike the ABs, they couldnt give a garbage for historical winning percentages. You must be a rugby newbie to not know this basic fact.

i had ABs 1-12, not so easy money perhaps, but a bloody good value bet. when the ABs turn up to jo berg in 3 weeks, ill be on the ab's line anything up to 14.5.. absolutlely.

oops, someone just realised it's possible for a New Zealander to recognise the ABs suck, who doesn't let the fact that other teams who suck even more hide the fact.

 Yes, not all of us here in sheep friggin land are one eyed morons.

Remarkably, an AB team can be garbage by the relative historical standards of AB teams (Bucks 87-90 team would tear this current team apart by 15+ points), and yet be the strongest current international team because every other country sucks even worse. Or did you think when I said the ABs suck I was making that comment relative to, say (out of a host of nations I could chose from), Australia's current strength? Don't answer, I realise given the IQ you've demonstrated to this point you probably were. I'll save you from the embarrassment of admitting so out loud.

What the hell is the point of comparing this all blacks team to a historical all blacks team? the game is a whole lot different now. clearly you are glass half empty man, we'll just say the all blacks suck but everyone else sucks even more - what an amazing argument! rather than the fact that the all blacks are better than everybody else.

I'm sure in pretty much every sport you could go back and say well this team from this year to year would beat our current team now, bottom line is that doesn't mean garbage because there's no point in talking about things that are impossible.
