You said he couldn’t get tactics across in a matter of weeks he gets with the players. He did just that during the 2017 WC, which we ended as finalists.

 

No I didnt.

Probably should gibe coach Woolf some credit here. Their defensive structure is holding very well. When GB go wide they aren't creating numbers.

Yep - excellent defence; some of it due to Hodgson’s slow distribution.

Yep, it's a good defence but we aren't really stretching it at all or moving it around unfortunately. Very poor in attack.

Rocks and diamonds Magilvaray.


         SL Steve Prescott Man of Steel 2016 - Danny Houghton  SL Top Gun 2016/2017 - Marc Sneyd (83%/89% goal success)

         SL Hit Man 2016/2017 - Danny Houghton (1,289/1,123 tackles)  SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC

If ever we need a reason to insist on neutral refs that McGilvary pub decision was it. Kendall is over compensating.  2 potential issue-move off the mark or player lying in the ruck - went with decision for Tonga?

Why was an Aussie reffing the Aus -NZ Test yesterday?

It really is a mystery why such incompetent appointments were made. Absolutely no reason why there could not have been neutral refs for both internationals this weekend

And the tactics we used, rather he used cost us any chance of winning the game, we had a superb team on their mettle and we blew it with poor selections and players out of position/poor tactics.

Tonga score and it's deffo game over here.

Game over.


Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Professional foul from GB ignored there by the officials as well. Anyone else disappointed no yellow card?

Would looking at the same angle for another two minutes make it anymore conclusive? I thought it was the correct decision. No point delaying the inevitable

I wouldn't suggest looking at the same angle.

NZ commentators "That was really close to being a professional foul."  ?@?#?$?%?  You think?

I'm not a fan of Hodgson tbh. I think he is given too much of a controlling role.

He started badly and got worse.

Why does he, and Bennett think he is a good first receiver. Get out of the way and let the halves play.

It is my assumption the bunker is being used. That would mean that the VR is looking at many available angles at the same time. Could be wrong...
