...I've purchased a Fev flat cap from the Fev shop.

 

For some reason, flat caps are called cheesecutters in NZ. We are a bit odd in NZ though! 

 

GO FEV!

 

cheers

Cheers oldrover & bigjohn!

 

Was looking at some classic Fev tries from 94/95 on DVD (thanks oldrover) just today. Tuuta popping up at loose forward or standoff!

 

Fev should definitely chase Lewis Brown once he comes off contract & Penrith. Especially if close too Superleague at that time. 

 

Am not sure what Tuuta is doing now. He was coaching at a local club (Northern Bulldogs) here in Christchurch. Quakes destroyed their clubrooms. They are still playing, but like alot of people, he might have moved away. I haven't heard his name mentioned in a while.

 

As of April 2011 he was still around

Following on from that, Matt Duffie might be someone to look at if he comes back from injury well.

 

cheers

Daryn

sounds like this lad is pretty quick. as for Brendon, he never struck me as someone who would walk away when the going got tough.

Yeah, I suspect he is still around oldrover. Not sure he likes the media much, so was surprised to see him quoted in that article! I think he likes doing the hard yards behind the scenes.

 

The club Tuuta was/is coaching was the Northern Bulldogs, located in a small town just north of Christchurch called Kaiapoi

Might be hard going. My lad's over there, plus a bloke we once met at a Warriors match, oh and Tangi Ropati, but after that we might be struggling!


Matt - send us some players from Tonga

Is Tangi Ropati the guy who got smashed in the jaw  by Rangi Chase?

 

I think he is recovered now and playing for the Auckland Vulcans in  the NSW Cup.

So the only pathway to the NRL within NZ would be:

Club league (amateur - a bit like BARLA)
Representative (regions - amateur)

NZ Warriors U20‘s

Auckland Vulcans (semi pro - NSW Cup)
NZ Warriors

The Vulcans are the only true semi pro team in the country, although I would imagine the NZ Warriors U20 get something.

Good players tend to jump from U20's straight to NZ Warriors.

Might surprise you, but that's it!

Totally oldrover. Union is the peoples game here. All Blacks are gods. For rugby league = constant struggle.

Five fully pro Super rugby franchises, at least 12 semi pro provinces. Dominates media & funding.

Any success by the Kiwis or NZ Warriors need to be measured taking this into a/c.
