Keep up with the news chappy.

He only signed for Cardiff so he could play in the NZ off-season.

He's gone home to play for a province and has now suffered yet another injury.

He didn't run off because he didn't score a try. He went because that was the plan all along.

No worries buddy. A whole world of rugby out there, can't be expeected to know it all. Everyone gets caught out once in a while.

He signed for North Harbour over a year ago. His stint in Cardiff was so he could build up his fitness after missing the last NPC with a shoulder injury. He now returns to North Harbour to try and break into the Blues side for the 2007 Super 14. If he doesn't, he stands no chance of playing for the All Blacks in the World Cup.

Hope Jonah does well in the NZ season, he really needs it! It would be great to see him in the World Cup. I am not sure though as it has been so long since he played for the All Blacks. :( :( :(

ALL THE BEST JONAH!!

Would be excellent if he did make it I agree. Realistically though I just can't see it happening. He didn't really set the world alight at Cardiff, he has struggled with injuries since he made his comeback, he is going to find it hard to get in the Blues squad with Doug Howlett and Joe Rokocoko ahead of him, let alone the All Blacks. That he has come back to the level he is at now is incredible enough, but I think the World cup will be a step too far.

Wish him all the best but I can't see him breaking into teh ABs. Too many good wingers ahead of him, not to mention some in other positions who can fill in on th ewing (eg: Muliania). If 1 or 2 picked up injuries it could be interesting, though.
