In New Zealand rugby, their idea of a crisis is a losing sequence of one-game in a row

In New Zealand rugby, their idea of a crisis is a losing sequence of one-game in a row. Heck even a draw against Australia a fortnight ago got them into a tizz, prompting coach Steve Hansen to call for a week of serious introspection “from myself down to the waterboy.” The country was seriously miffed...

All Blacks in search of retribution at Eden Park today

Physical intimidation has formed the backbone of the now long-held dominance over the Wallabies. Australia are probably the only nation in world rugby that can match the All Blacks in terms of attacking skill, but their forward pack's inadequacies have often blunted the ability to showcase those inherent talents. Rugby is, and always will be,... Continue Reading →

How much does it cost to book your fav rapper -Study up

If you haven’t noticed, the rap business has changed. You probably know this because you and all your friends likely haven’t paid for an artist’s music in a minute. Due to torrenting, streaming, and music sharing (basically the Internet), records just don’t sell like they used to. So, with record purchases more or less going... Continue Reading →

Steve Hansen – Performance about All Blacks , not ref Peyper

It was no consolation at all to All Blacks coach Steve Hansen that a post-game meeting with last week's referee Jaco Peyper yielded a frank "mea culpa" from the South African whistle-blower.

Where are the weaknesses that the All Blacks have to fix if they are to stay ahead of the world ?

OPINION: Love the rain. Give me a stick of dynamite and I would blow the roof off the Millennium Stadium. Wet weather rugby is a whole new ball game. It demands a higher skill level, a flexible tactical mind and it gives the fate of the contest to the forwards. Suddenly these All Blacks didn't... Continue Reading →
