Easter Bunny Succumbs To Chocolate-Induced Heart Attack

deadbunnyAccidental death? Death by misadventure? Our hunch is a deliberate choice. Relatives revealed that he was a Munster and Quins supporter.

    FD, I don’t think I’m being particularly controversial by saying that if George Smith is the Wallabies seven, he will win the series for them.
    Unless the Lions bulldoze him away from the contact, but that leaves spaces out wide.

  2. tichtheid says:

    avs – you already said it as I was typing.

  3. firstdifference says:

    @ Ticht

    I’ve thought all along we would have an edge at 7, but we smith that edge becomes something larger than an edge.

  4. avsfan says:

    I think they stick around because they realize that they will be learning from the masters.

    Of course, spend any time in Chch, and you lose the ability to function in a civilized society, which might have something to do with it. That’s why McMaitland picked Glasgow. Only option open to him, really.

  5. snakkbar says:

    they mentioned in commentary that this guy (dutch looking name, can’t remember) had captained under 20’s blacks to a title or something like that. bloody horrific looking knee injury early on in that game though – McNicholl I think it was. had to turn away…was a hugely physical game all the way throughout. you know what you’re gonna get when bunch of saffers meet a bunch of kiwis.

  6. tichtheid says:

    IFD, honestly think Ross Rennie could give him a game, but he is short on matches through injury and Gatland won’t pick him

  7. avsfan says:

    Bluyendall perhaps?

  8. firstdifference says:

    Bleyendall. He hasn’t done quite enough to become a commodity in NZ. they grow very good 21-22 five eighths on trees there. Slade, Anscombe, Cruden etc.

  9. snakkbar says:

    that’s the fella.

  10. avsfan says:

    Yeah, I think Gatland needs to take a punt and pick someone with an x factor at 7. Throbshaw it ain’t, nor any of the Irish chappies, Tuperic perhaps, but Rennie would be the man.

  11. snakkbar says:

    more scandy than dutch looking name then…

  12. firstdifference says:

    Maybe, smith a few games back is already topping s15 in pilfers, has topped the brumbies tackle count in 4 of the 5 games he has played. And has run the ball, offloaded. He is freak.

  13. snakkbar says:

    sam the welshman is the pick. looks like he’s coming back into a bit of form, taking away the captaincy could be a masterstroke.

  14. firstdifference says:

    Robshaw will get eaten alive. 20 18cm runs a game is not that worrying.

  15. firstdifference says:

    I would be most worried about a combination of SOB, Tipuric and a ball running 8 that I am not sure the home nations have.

  16. snakkbar says:

    lions could definitely do with a leaner, slightly more experienced ben morgan. our biggest miss of the 6N. we’d have still lost to wales, but would have done better against ireland, france and italy with the big fella.

  17. tichtheid says:

    If Smith is the question then neither Tipuric, Robshaw, Warburton or Thor are the answer – not unless you have Morgan, SOB and Ferris moving every ruck back ten metres every time, and that won’t happen.

  18. tichtheid says:

    Similar train of thought over the last few posts there

  19. firstdifference says:

    Yeah, ferris is the missing piece. If he was fit available, you could move Thor to 8 and pay one of warburton or Tipuric at 7. Scary. Without ferris, not so much.

  20. snakkbar says:

    back rows that we won’t see – Ferris, SOB and Morgan. No 7, but who gives a flying. Just bloody frightening.

  21. firstdifference says:

    @ snakkbar

    It might work 50% of the time. I’ve seen the boks try that smashy huge backrow against us too many times and seen it fail to be really worried by it.

  22. snakkbar says:

    yeah you’re probably right, think i was just marvelling at the whole three headed rampaging monster aspect of it all.

  23. Can’t remember Rennie doing anything special at international level tbh, think Tipuric, Warburton and Robshaw are much better players.

  24. firstdifference says:

    Take robshaw out of that list and maybe yes.

  25. snakkbar says:

    Robshaw doesn’t offer the go forward that we’ll need. good captaincy material. Problem is, he shouldn’t be in the team.

  26. tichtheid says:

    Ok gentlemen, it’s time I reposed. There is chocolate a plenty tomorrow and the clocks go forward too.

    Easter is weird in England, ie it exists, it was never a big deal in Scotland.

  27. tichtheid says:

    Fuelled by cartoons, the first time I ever heard of Guscott was when he was brought in to a Lions tour – believe me, Rennie is that sort of class, but he does break.

    Ticht, A comment on nick Easter being good at club level but not good internationally?

  29. snakkbar says:

    Tom Wood is prob the only alternative to either of the welsh 7s. He’s been englands best player for the last 7 or 8 games. But he won’t get in the first XV.
