President's Letter

 

The Rugby World Cup has been an exciting event, well done to the Japanese.

 

 

I’m pleased I didn’t have to pick the team for the biggest show-down of the year for the All Blacks v Ireland game on Saturday night.  Whilst you can argue that not playing against the Azzurri gave Hansen and co time for more in house trials it also means we haven’t really been tested.

 

 

 

It looks like the All Blacks’ selectors have gone with a mix of tried and true in the forward pack with Moody, Taylor and Laulala in the front row with Whitelock, Retallick and the loose forwards of Savea, Read and Cane making up the forward pack. Mixing them with some new and exciting flair of Bridge and Reece as well as those who have put their hands up saying look at me Mr Hansen, including Lienert-Brown and Mo’unga. Beaudan Barrett was always a given.

 

 

 

This looks like a winning team.  How too could anyone argue that our bench are not first rate players?  They will be chomping on the bit to get on the field and will add some real oomph when they do come on later in the game.  Bring it on.
