She is talking about which college to go to. Auckland uni or massey.
She seems to be really making the point how happy she is
Bundee seems to be complaining about the weather every second day
If he doesn't see out his 3years I hope there's a term and conditions in his contract that he has to pay back every penny he earns.

Steady on guys. give him a chance. this wasn't planned. I'm sure he's missing his partner and daughters. Support is what he needs right now.

He must be devastated, he looked it coming off on Friday. He has been desperately unlucky this past year. Hopefully he'll recover in time for the end of the season.

Some good news at last, niyi has signed a two year deal. He's been great so far this season IMO I hope it continues.

Happy for him to get a new deal. Yet to see anything from him which has impressed me though

Hopefully this might be the start of the new contract announcements

McCartney is now invaluable to us with his ability to cover positions across the front row. I had a bad feeling about the knock JHW took in the game, he should never have played on.

Does someone think the 5 minutes he played after his injury were really detrimental on the recovery lenght?

Saw it with Heenan in the first game. Got injured, stayed on, and it's possible that the extra few minutes caused further damage

Yeah but not the same injury. Knee is maybe "all or nothing" kind of damage

Jay tore his cruciate. Don't think playing on would have made any difference. maybe it was the case in Heenans. A buddy of mine was talking to Jake a few weeks back. recovery going well. On course for return to training in January.

That's very good news, for once :) . Kind of making up for JHW

3 things that have impressed me about Niyi:

3) General attitude - for instance his speed and willingness to chase make even the worst box kick or kickoff into a decent one. Lots of work areas to improve on, but, similar to Healy for instance, you feel he has the intelligence and determination to get better.
2) His read and hit on Sean Cronin against Leinster. Put himself out of the game but stopped a try.
1) His assist for McKeon against Dragons, it'd make a BOD highlight reel: beat 2, drew 2, one-handed offload out of the tackle, walk-in for McKeon.

Can't have been watching too closely then to be honest. ;)
Think everyone has to take into account firstly they guy was playing AIL2 as at most a semi-pro, and has forced his way into our back-line and not looked out of place at all in his first pro season.

He's committed in the tackle, a good communicator and positive with the ball, and he's got that crucial in short supply ingredient we were hoping to get back with Fionn...

GAS - the man is absolutely rapid....

A year with Mils to provide some back three play nuggets can only bring him on further, and the clincher is it's his first full pro contract so he'll be on a liveable but not remarkable salary...

ACL injury... Same as Henry.. once again, bad luck or lack of physical training/prevention?
Anyway Henry's return to the fields is forseen in 4 months now... If one of McCartney/Heffernan gets injured, do you think we can trust Delahunt without hindering our Hcup dreams? If not what about a three month loan for Fogarty? He's not a starter anymore for Agen, I think player and club would agree
