  • cab – for me, the fact that the Chiefs are down to their third-choice scrummie makes it unlikely they’ll do it

  • hmmm rob, i see you have done your research, yip no leonard, guess its a fair prediction played at canes homeground. the canes are like the Cats of a few years back absolutely superb on paper, but dont live up to it much.

  • Canes need that back row of theirs to pitch up… especially Jerry Collins. Once he shakes his WC hangover, watch out for the fireworks.

    Actually hoping they stay shit this year… would be nice to pick up a win in Wellington.

  • reckon a few of the SA side picked up a win in wellington last year, really surprising, as you say Collins, Masoe, So ailo – should be fireworks.

  • Masoe… he’s a bastard, that one. Completely underrated.

    Rodney can really go AWOL at time… doesn’t scare me too much. Big JC is the dangerman… him and that Lauaki FREAK
