All Blacks B managed to hold of Argentina 20-16 and South Africa B took to the Aussies 33-17.  Hopefully with some more regulars back in the team they play better this week.

What do you think of this team?  Is it Fifita's lack chance to impress after a lackluster performance against Argentina?

Seems pretty experimental.

I wish Hansen was more willing to experiment with a lineup that doesn't involve a Barret in the backline... in the starting XV, atleast

Nothing to discuss about the last AB's game apart from they were crap.  Some big score results in the first round of the NPC.  I think I get a bit lost because sometimes they have the matches in the middle of the week.  Another year and Southland still can't win.  I checked and the Women's matches don't start until August 31st.

Week 1
08 Aug Southland v Northland 17-27
09 Aug Auckland v North Harbour 28-28
10 Aug Tasman v Wellington 45-8
10 Aug Counties Manukau v Taranaki 29-34
10 Aug Waikato v Canterbury 31-28
11 Aug Bay of Plenty v Otago 50-7
11 Aug Manawatu v Hawke’s Bay 13-31

Week 2
15 Aug Northland v Auckland 10-43
16 Aug North Harbour v Counties Manukau North Harbour Stadium 5:45 PM
16 Aug Hawke’s Bay v Wellington McLean Park, Napier 7:45 PM
17 Aug Manawatu v Taranaki Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerston North 2:05 PM
17 Aug Otago v Southland (RS)Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin 4:35 PM
18 Aug Canterbury v Tasman Orangetheory Stadium 2:05 PM
18 Aug Bay of Plenty v Waikato Rotorua International Stadium 4:35 PM

A big team changeup with that disastrous last match with the AB's but still going with the Mo'unga/Barrett 10/15 setup.  Hopefully this time Barrett actually stays in his position.

The matchday 23 is as follows (with Test caps in brackets):

1. Joe Moody (39)
2. Dane Coles (63)
3. Nepo Laulala (18)
4. Patrick Tuipulotu (23)
5. Samuel Whitelock (110)
6. Ardie Savea (37) 
7. Sam Cane (62)
8. Kieran Read - captain (120)
9. Aaron Smith (85)
10. Richie Mo’unga (11)
11. George Bridge (3)
12. Sonny Bill Williams (52)
13. Anton Lienert-Brown (36)
14. Sevu Reece (1)
15. Beauden Barrett (76)


16. Codie Taylor (43)
17. Ofa Tuungafasi (28)
18. Angus Ta’avao (6)
19. Jackson Hemopo (4)
20. Matt Todd (19)
21. TJ Perenara (57)
22. Ngani Laumape (12)
23. Jordie Barrett (10)
