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.

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)

16 Aug North Harbour v Counties Manukau 25-39
16 Aug Hawke’s Bay v Wellington 27-27

17 Aug Otago v Southland (RS) 41-22
18 Aug Canterbury v Tasman 8-23
18 Aug Bay of Plenty v Waikato 40-14

These are the All Blacks that have been released to play

Brad Weber (Hawke's Bay) and Liam Coltman and Josh Ioane (Otago) for their match at McLean Park, Napier, on Thursday 22 August.

Vaea Fifita (Wellington) and Braydon Ennor (Canterbury) for their match at Westpac Stadium, Wellington, on Friday 23 August.

Atu Moli (Tasman) and Jackson Hemopo (Manawatu) for their match at Lansdowne Park, Blenheim, on Saturday 24 August.

What do you think of the World Cup Squad?  I find it funny that Franks isn't mobile enough but Rieko Ioane who has done nothing all year still makes it in.


Forwards: Dane Coles, Codie Taylor, Liam Coltman, Atu Moli, Nepo Laulala, Joe Moody, Angus Ta'avao, Ofa Tuungafasi, Brodie Retallick, Scott Barrett, Sam Whitelock, Patrick Tuipulotu, Kieran Read (c), Sam Cane, Ardie Savea, Matt Todd, Luke Jacobson.

Backs: TJ Perenara, Aaron Smith, Brad Weber, Beauden Barrett, Richie Mo'unga, Jack Goodhue, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty, Sonny Bill Williams, Jordie Barrett, George Bridge, Rieko Ioane, Sevu Reece, Ben Smith.

If Southland were ever going to break their losing streak in Mitre 10 Cup now is their best chance considering Canterbury are 0-3 this season.  I think I might start following Tasman instead.

Week 4

29 Aug Wellington v Counties Manukau Westpac Stadium, Wellington 7:35 PM
30 Aug Otago v Manawatu (RS) Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin 7:35 PM
31 Aug Canterbury v Southland Orangetheory Stadium 2:35 PM

Cheers @Dkindahouse, cant wait for this to kick off in less than a fortnight. The App for the WC is pretty crappy. Pleasantly surprised to see that the Spark test run for the South Africa game worked.

Those nz times?

Yes they are so not flash times for us.  Just like the east of Australia Japan is 3 hours behind us.

What a difference a week can make with Otago being thrashed, Southland almost breaking their losing streak and Tasman almost losing their winning streak.
