  • Will we see the same running rugby we have seen the boys play over the last two weeks? That is the crucial aspect. Hope we don’t revert back to labored style we saw before we went on tour.

  • Also, having Dan back from the bench is a massive boost. Bring him on to run right over those Bulls in the last half hour.

    No chance we win the whole tournament

    Not one to blame the ref but Seconds made some strange decisions today, for example, we take the quick tap and get tackled 3 metres out, not ten, but play on ???

  • I’ll leave this here for Sallie, if he’s still interested.

    About the US Census.

    The Constitution stipulates that there must be a census of every person in the USA every 10 years for the purpose of evenly apportioning Congressional seats.
    Evenly by all residents, including immigrants, not just by number of voters.

    Since immigrants typically reside in pro Democrat areas, it is in the Republicans obvious interest to count as few of them as possible.
    Hence The Trump administration’s plan to add a question asking people if they are illegal immigrants or not. I doubt this will fly though, because I’ve read somewhere that there was a court decision in the past that outlawed questions specifically designed to intimidate people to not participate.

    In the 90s the Clinton administration had a sort of similar plan. They wanted to use statistical methods to correct for the known under counting of poor people and minorities. They had a long list of reputable statisticians lined up to testify that the count will be more accurate that way. There was also the argument that census data is used for assigning resources to states and cities by all kinds of Federal laws and that more accurate numbers will ensure that the money goes to where the law intended. The courts though, ruled that while they may use statistics for every other purpose, the Constitution requires that an actual head count be used for Congressional districts.

    Further back, when the Constitution was written, the southern states wanted all the slaves counted, because that would amplify the votes of southern plantation owners. The northern states were naturally opposed. This led to the now infamous three fifths of a person compromise. Every 5 slaves, were counted as 3 persons. Understandably there is still a lot of resentment among African Americans about this specific clause of the Constitution, but in reality, it would have been better for the slaves if they were not counted at all. After the Civil War, when the Constitution was amended to count everyone equally, but blacks remained almost completely disenfranchised, white southern votes were even more amplified. Hence it took another 100 years before blacks were treated as equal citizens.

    Even more back the Roman Republic referred to citizens without property as the Capiti Sensi. Literally, the head count. Counting them was all they were good for because they could neither serve in the army nor vote. Hence why the conservatives reacted with violence when the Gracchi brothers proposed to hand out plots of state land to all citizens. Later when Rome was threatened by German invaders and Gaius Marius needed recruits for the army, a deal was struck give plots of land to retired soldiers. That however, did not make much difference, because the Romans had a vote by “tribe” system and all the lower classes were stuffed into the same tribe where their votes counted for almost nothing.
    Likewise when citizenship was extended, after the “Social War” to all Italians, the new citizens were all stuffed into the same ‘tribe’ as to not upset the balance of power.
    In fact the Roman conservatives were so well ensconced that their hold on power was only broken when the Caesars effectively disenfranchised everyone.

    Hopefully we won’t have to resort to equally drastic measures in the USA.
    My prediction is that the next time Democrats control the government they’re going to permanently shaft the Republicans by granting statehood to Puerto Rico and perhaps DC.

    Footnote:
    The Roman “Social War” was ironically a war by Rome’s Italian Allies against Rome for the right of the Allies to become Roman citizens. Rome won, but only after granting citizenship to all allies who’d fight on its side. By the time the killing stopped, the surviving Italians had won the Roman citizenship the dead ones went to war for.
    The original Italian gripe was that their treaties with Rome forced them into fighting and dying in all of Rome’s wars but their lack of citizenship granted them no say in the matter.
    This had a bit of a modern echo in 2004 when there was an op-ed in a British newspaper complaining about the fact that Brits were fighting and dying in America’s wars, but had no vote in presidential elections.
    Imagine Brits and Canadians going to war against the USA for the right to become US citizens!
    It may turn out pretty good for Mexicans. :)

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 170) : To my knowledge no Kiwi or Aussie team has ever been away from home for more than 2 games – double that time and you are in a whole different ball park. The playing fields have never been equal on this one with South African teams always being disadvantaged. This year Bulls and Stormers had 3 games in Oz and NZ while the Sharks and Lions have 4.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 179) : Two factors here:
    1) Effects of jet lag – west to east generally takes double the time to recover from than east to west.
    2) Spending a long time on the road – that does tend to get you down at some point. Strangely the Sharks put in their best performance in the fourth week – usually when teams play with on-the-plane-already syndrome. However I would expect that being home again would lift your spirits.

    I think the problem is that all 23 players have to play at 100% to put in a decent game overall, i.e. the team relies a lot on “gees” to perform. Just a couple of players slightly off their game and the entire unit folds.

    A long stretch of tough matches may have asked for a bit more rotation of players at this stage.
