    Very interesting, Ready looked the goods last year, but appears to have been replaced by an ineffective Wallaby in Paenga-Amosa (sp)

    If we can keep on picking up good players who aren't getting a gig because they don't fit Cheika's vaunted gameplan, then we might just end up up with a team that can beat the Wallabies!

    Yeah, but TPN's padding out his superannuation in Europe, and I'm not begrudging him that

    Stander kicking the conversion. Nothing but awesome. He's been playin well and heavily involved but I got a feeling the team were trying to him a meat pie. McGregor, Uyen, Taefu and the Orr bros really put it on tonight. Of course helped with the efforts of the rest of the team. Even with the bench comin on I was impressed. HK played a good game. Temp was a little low but id take tonight over the weather from the Samoa game.

    What does the NRC Force squad look like? Are there players who were only contracted for the WSR?

    Courier mail are reporting Ready is going to do a stint for Southland in the NPC but it's paywalled.. If it's true, that'll be great experience for him and show's he's motivated - and maybe a little nuts to swap Qld for NZ's deep south winter

    Southland? I've seen those jerseys before, on the guys who supported the Blues against the Force at NIB Stadium.
