20 kiwis in a squad of 37. And that’s not including Quade! This is a new low for Australian rugby that will be difficult to turn around. Mores the pity that quite a few of them are actually Rugby League players.
The Wallabies will be playing a pretend Barbarians side that includes not one Northern Hemisphere player and is captained by a guy playing for one nation whilst traveling on another’s passport, has never been able to lock down a position in his national side, still can’t tackle after more than ten years of professional rugby, and would have been jailed for assault and stealing had his state union not stepped in to save the day.
Rugby is a joke in this country.

Yeah…Okay Alan. They got 100k to the AFL grand final – this game will be lucky to attract 100…call me cynical, but a Barbarians side with no Northern Hemisphere players, some ex-fringe-Wallabies, and a bunch of kiwis playing NRC because they couldn’t get SuperRugby contracts in the side, and it seems a little bit like a desperate money grab for a dying sport…

No No No. This thug – yet another violent criminal kiwi who’s made this country his home  – gets seven years jail for killing some innocent kid? Seven years? He murdered the poor bugger! AND he gets two years off for time served? There is something terribly wrong with this country’s justice system…I wonder if the maggot will get deported like his fuckwit mate once he’s done his prison time, or if he’ll stay here peddling his filth until he gets jailed again.

Burgess was in the squad for the same reason the Wallabies picked Sailor, Tuquri, Rogers et al (not to mention some actual rugby players) because their Unions pay them big dollars to switch codes, and aren’t going to leave their major signings on the bench or off the field.

In response to a reader’s comments, published after the article…

@gman – now you’re just being disrespectful! Quade’s counter-attack from whatever defensive backspace he’s been hiding in is always something to behold, as is his behind-the-back flick-passes when he realizes that he’s going to get smashed if he doesn’t offload the pill. The comedic value he adds to a game of rugby should not be dismissed in such a cavalier way.

And yet she gets her tits out in “Big Little Lies”.  I won’t even mention the surgery or botox…this is a person who’s won Academy Awards, commands huge fees as an accomplished actress, and clearly has an  influence. Way to go, girl – stand up for women’s rights!

If the Lions are serious about cutting meaningless games from an Australian tour due to weak opposition, they’ll cut all games but the tests. They should probably only bother scheduling one of those too…sigh…

Twiggy might be a billionaire capable of running a massive mining company. He might even be able to save rugby in the West. But he can’t speak gooderer English – “a fair bit of water under the bridge with Cameron and I”…WTF?!?!?

WTF is anyone surprised that this happened…

a. Meafua will have been treated like a mini-God for the last 5 years or so, and would have thought he was untouchable…
b. He’s a kiwi – his first reaction to most everything would be violent. It’s how they mostly solve things. Once Were Warriors, anyone?

Hopefully his next ten years of night-club bouncing, or road-working, will see him too old to ever play football again (assuming he’s not in prison). Hopefully this is a shining example to all other athletes of what will happen when the rules are broken. And hopefully, he’ll be deported so he can’t do this in the country that’s fed him and his numerous family members since they darkened our shores.
