Apparently one of the Fijian players cut all of the teams hair before the game-maybe we can tap him on the shoulder...
if he's a prop it's a no-brainer. (old winger's joke). You're right though, I've noticed every time Gavet's fukn hair tie breaks everyone covers their eyes.

Just hope there’s no crap from the fans after the game- the Aussie (especially Sydney) media will have a Feild day with it

Tonga are still a fair way off Australia, they aren't keeping the high intensity up for the whole 80 minutes yet.
True dat but in matiunz's land of pixies and unicorns in the future the top 6 or 8 nations will have equal player payments, none of this tier shit, and world peace etc and Aussies won't be cheating convict scum. Must be on some good shit in Hawke's Bay bro.

This Pacific test has built up well the last few years. Good to see the crowd this game can pull in.

We probably are getting to a stage we could stop the NRL for a few weeks and have weekends of with the games we have scheduled this weekend. Turn them all into a 3 match series or mix up the internationals.

I didn't get to see the earlier game. But this game was a good game, matched with the atmosphere.

Australia in transition. But Maloney and Cleary at 6 and 7 better than Ata and Tui or Combined Hunt/munster
Tonga's lack of depth, especially in the halves, will hold them back for a while as it has done for the Kiwi's. Higano, Lolohea, Hurrell and Havilii aren't starters in the their club sides currently or even regular first graders. They certainly lift and play better behind such a dominant pack but you can expect Australia will match their forwards, or at least stay with them better than the Kiwi's, Samoans and the English did in the RLWC, then run them down in the latter half of the game. I hope I'm wrong.

Cameron Smith (AKA 3rd ref) didnt get Shaun Johnson to play for Aussie.

If you have watched the body language and the way he throws his arm right around the players shoulder and leads them to an empty part of the field you wouldnt be defending it as false. I remember watching him do it to Fusitua and commented at the time how slimey and dodgey it looked.

U seem to be the only 1 who believes he is clean from the Tongan exodus.

Is that you Mrs Taumalolo?
And you seem to be the only one still butt hurt from him turning down n.z.
How bout you just get over it?

Kiwis have always lacked halves depth. Shame they missed out on Cleary but he "feels Australian", which would be the primary reason to chose a country if not for the vast difference in earning potential$. Gotta admire JT for keeping it real, even if he's a devious cu** as some suggest.

Doesn't look like Tui or Hingano will be little generals for MMT so they'll have to wait a while for world domination.

p.s. it's not too late Nathan, just plead insanity and (((you have been brainwashed by a convict cult saying you're a sickcunt all day)))
Come back to R e a l i t y and feel like a waka Maori. The key is in Sydney and you are the ONE


I'm doing my best here boys

Would suggest you are the one seeing imaginary things bro

Game was over at half time in reality, Both teams ran out of puff a bit in that second half and that’s where your Aus and England’s will still beat these guys.
Good to see Samoa make it interesting for a bit but they let Tonga get far to much of a lead.

How would Nathan Cleary qualify to play for the Kiwi's?

I know you didn't say any of that bro, I admit I was only using the mighty Unicorns as a device to allude to a different land of unicorns without your consent. I feel dirty about it. But you're right on your second point, I still see plenty of potential in Lisone.

How bout no? When someone betrays my country, my butt never stops hurting. National pride isnt a throw-away emotion.

Maybe you should take notice of the topic of conversation before you aimed at me. There were quite a few discussing it. Still are.
