All Blacks on the Internet

Post by Peter Willia » Tue, 24 Oct 1995 04:00:00


Read in the SUNDAY TIMES that the All Black touring party will be able to
catch up on news from home by Internet.

I'm sure some of them will be interested to read this newsgroup.

Apparently Eric Rush has been reading this newsgroup for years (r.s.r) and
always has a good laugh on Monday's.

My picks for the French tests.

Wilson to replace Osbourne
Rush to take Wilson's place
Marshall as Halfback
Jones as blind side flanker.
The rest pick themselves.

Cheers
Pete

Gee - Wilson replaces Osbourne, and on the next line he gets
replaced by Rush! That was quick! Let me guess - he came down
with another tummyache?

Richard Loe been poking eyes again, has he?

So what do the "selectors" do, then, if the players can
pick themselves?

Relax, Pete - I had nothing serious to say today -
all my comments are tongue-in-cheek. BIG smiley :-D

Worra lurker! If the team really are reading r.s.r.(u.), how about the odd
exclusive update for the faithful? Anyone got an email address for the team?

Can't imagine what use that'll be, unless they're talking about
soc.culture.nz, where they can gen up on discussions about how to make
a 'real' pav etc. They can't mean this group either, since they'll
be making the news.

Now if we could only convince them to enter into some of our 'discussions',
that would be cool. :) ...

     Sorry Bruce, I keep telling Frank to do that, but he just won't
     listen, and I'm only the coach, whereas Buncy is a Professional
     Rugby Player.

     Thanks for the warning about the French food. I got Richard, Sean
     and Olo to carry 5 suitcases of vegemite sandwiches and 2 boxes
     of mince pies. This wasn't going to be enough, so I managed to
     wangle 'Bull' onto the tour so he could carry another 3 suitcases.
     She'll be right.

I've been thinking along the same lines. Rush's form this season has
been *absolutely* outstanding, and Jeff Wilson has been playing
regularly at fullback in the NPC. Love to see Eric given a chance, even
if it's the 'wrong' wing, and not just because he reads this newsgroup. :)

Quote:
>Marshall as Halfback

I get the impression that the intent is to see if he can fast-track it
to take the top spot, with Stu Forster as a back-stop. He's got a lot
to learn yet, but definitely has the talent to make it.

Agreed. You've identified all the areas which stand out as far as
possible changes to the test lineup is concerned. Another possible
depending on how he shapes is Taine Randell, however as you imply
Michael Jones is playing superbly at present, and will probably
get the blind-side spot unless injuries change things.

Cheers,
Paul.

Couldn't agree more whole-heartedly!   Would you put Rush on as right wing
though, or swap him and Jonah?  Mind you, could be a bit harder to shave the
number 14 into an eyebrow! :-)

Just imagine...... who would dare say anything about the Brooke brothers if
they knew they were reading it!  :-)

You reckon Jones will play blind-side, or you hope he will?  After the
dropping of Kronfeld fiasco for the second Bledisloe Cup test it wouldn't
surprise me if Jones ended up as openside - which would be ***y ridiculous
seeing as he's been playing blindside for Auckland.  Still, we must be due for
another ridiculous selection (but then again, has anyone heard the forward
pack selected to play the tour opener - take away Loe and Larsen and it's
practically an un***ed pack, complete with new halfback!  Aghhhhhh!).

Tracey.

You haven't got Laurie's e-mail address and keeping it to yourself???
