Hi There!

I don't want to turn this into a massive discussion, but I was wondering, if it's possible for Henry to change his squad now he has announced or call in other players if they suffer massive injuries (Read for example)?

Also anyone else draw comparisons between Quade Cooper and Carlos Spencer? Brilliance hindered by silly discipline problems (getting scrappy with McCaw etc).

injury yes

quade cooper is a loose cannon and can't kick goals. spencer can do banana kicks and is physically stronger i think.

cooper's brain explosions are matched by ali williams and toeava's. mccaw isn't the cleanest player either (in legal terms, but rarely physically hurts people)

Hi There!

Thanks. I just can't believe how out for blood the NZ public seems to be over the back to back losses. Ok they lost two in a row, one with a B side against the SA A side, in SA, in Port Elizabeth, hardly surprising. Saturday they lost by 5 points (Which I personally think they were lucky to get because that stupid ref kept getting in the way). They basically recovered 17 points in 20 minutes of play, imagine if they had played properly all game, it would have been a slaughter.

I think they will be ok, and if not, well let's worry about it then.

People who are calling for Robbie Deans to be our coach obviously hasn't been watching his endless string of losses! I really like RD, but I think the proof is in the pudding.

I agree fully.

 The public can be fickle. I feel comfortable with the skill we have. They will be hungry to win in a few weeks time, and I am sure they will leave everythibng on the field.

I hope they do. About the only thing I was not happy about at the RWC last time was the players comments at the press conference saying they would bleed to win the cup, and it was clearly not the case.

Yeah. This year, it looks to me that the focus is on one day, hopefully in reality. The Bledisloe and Tri Nations is not the focus, thats how I see it, a big, big RWC push. I hope this year they will in fact be that focused and committed.

I am as big of a fan as most other Kiwi's that love rugby, but this obsession with winning the world cup is a little out of hand. I would prefer a team that won almost all it's games than lost almost all it's games and still won the WC. I don't think anyone actually believed that SA were the worlds best team just because they won that one tournament.

Of course I think it's important we win this one, for the morale of the country and I'd love to see them win this one just for pride, but will I dislike the AB's if they lose? Nope, I'll be a staunch supporter and hope they do better next time

People need some perspective I think.
