Taufua and Tuipolotu!!!
Taufua scrapped a lucrative spell in Japan to go home and play for the All Blacks. Now he's got the shirt I don't think he'll leave.

If we could get Frizell over instead though, there's a dynamic ball carrier, looks like a more compact Steve Mafi. He's young though so it might be tough to talk him out of staying and playing for the ABs.

I don't know about the rest of you but, particularly at this time of year, whenever I see this thread highlighted in red showing there's a new message, my heart skips a beat!

Mind you - that could be the Atrial Fibrillation.

Hope this message hasn't got anyone over-excited!
I am the same. Even on a night shift I have a cheeky check to see the last updated post and if it's this thread I have a little heart flutter...even at 4am when clearly it's not the signing of Israel Dagg (which I would like so very much)...
There is never any points for 2nd place...

I think you’ve mixed the two up, Taufua hasn’t even by capped by New Zealand whereas Frizell has, whilst I really rate both players Taufua would be a more realistic addition.

2019
Brodie Retallick (27) - Rumoured Sale (I don't believe it)

A few names on there that would be a good signing.
Putting 2 and 2 together and getting at least 100 probably but...


I hope you know something that means you believe he’s going elsewhere, closer to home...

I don't see him leaving NZ 27/28, in prime position to be a NZ captain.

So i guess he is now their #1 pick? Shame as he could have fitted in quite well from the few highlights i've seen.
cheers

And that article was over 6 months old, a very long time in sport.

Latest truth or trash... Marquee replacement for Toomua is a current or former All Black, predominantly a No.6, can play across the Back Row (sounds like us)...

I think there is part truth to that.
Just not the Toomua marquee bit, unless it was Ardie Savea which it won't be.
