Nice try Ata, we needed it.

Now that they have made the decision to shift Tui to 6, I can't see us retaining Ata for much longer, the kid is really starting to look the goods and it would be criminal to hold him back in Reserve grade until an injury strikes.
We are doomed to lose one of them now IMO

Lol checking an obstruction for what. This ref is looking for a reason not to award the try.

I don't think so, Ata is a true distributor and belongs in the halves. Tui is a freak and is better suited to centre. But more importantly both these boys haven't done shit that justifies them being paid big money, hopefully they'll get to that point.

Obstruction my ass!

Ref letting the Aussies have a sleep on the tackled player. Can't believe the Kiwis haven't gotten any penalties for how long the Aussies have held down in the tackle.

2016 and we can't get mutual refs for internationals.

We won't get a fair go until that happens

What I've really liked about Ata in this game is him telling his players exactly where he wants them and demanding the ball.

Whilst game over. Good effort from the juniors. Kangaroos given a huge leg up from the ref.

Play on. It's a knock on you don't need to check that.

They're going to give this aren't they.

The ref in the juniors game. Biased of the highest order. Surely they could have had and NRL ref for the game.

He is an NRL ref, just not usually a lead red.

Hang onto hingano at all costs, let lolohea leave if it comes to the choice. Ata is the business

The problem is the class both have doesn't grow on trees, Lolohea will already have suitors lining up to throw top dollar at him. Im still not sure what Tui's best position is but to be able to fit both in the team will take a major re-structuring of the backline personnel to balance the flaws in their games.
Ata's price tag keeps climbing the more you see him and until they put some rules in place regarding Rookies we look set to lose him to a club looking for a half to build a team around.

Impressed with him.
He's at the cows watching an interview with him he had signed with the cows but was still rocking warrior gear got some good young hookers coming up

Reminds me of a younger Luke dynamic runner from hooker.

Well it proves Mooks has no B plan his pig headedness not to pick Benji and to run a hooker at stand off has cost a test, he pushed Harris to centre and he got to look like an out of position player when he got smoked on the outside! Mooks plays makeshift hookers and we get no go forward ball, every time Brown passed he stood up looked then passed and stifled any momentum we were trying to build and our forwards couldn't get any dominance he then made multiple changes all at once and we looked lost, I blame none of the players and the coach must cop this on the chin! Roos played shit and just locked us out!
See that's why he failed at NRL level he can't accept change and is too rigid just like when he played, he had one style and never won us a game on his own back, yeah turning up to training and video sessions and licking coaches arses can be beneficial to EGOs! but bruthaz we should be winning every test or going real close with ALL the players at our disposal but when you have a 'playing games' coach we will never have years of domination, I bet Kidwell wanted to strangle Mooks, lets see what happens now?

Try not to lose any sleep over it, I think you're over thinking it too much. At least we do produce good juniors though.
