    We were f**king shit!

    Aussie were the better team.

    Unfortunately I think we might be about to go through a rough patch.

    Ian Foster is a rubbish coach... always has been.

    Dave Rennie is a much, much better coach IMO.

    I do think we will bounce back strong next week... probably put up a score on them...

    With Beuden Barrett back and I’d say probably Caleb Clark either on the wing or at Centre.

    Ioane needs a kick in the arse and to be benched for f**king that try up before half time.

    I pick us to still win this year... but I think over the next cycle we are going to drop off... because fozzy sucks.

    That put down looked rank in real time. Glad they pulled it up.

    We have a decent kicker, we win this comfortably.

    The eels had a problem with a penalty gone wrong yesterday and that now that ball off the posts again today. Enough.

    That referee was a disgrace not to mention the touch judge mistake that lead to the first try, regardless tough conditions and good contest .

    Obviously I'm confident that the ABs will win in Auckland, and win the series... but regardless of what happens, you ate very fortunate to have Rennie at the helm, opinions will differ, but I reckon he's close to the best NZ coach going around at the moment - my without thinking rankings are Hansen, Rennie, Schmit, Robertson... lots of people... Foster... I have no idea why Foster got our gig, smacks of Kearney getting the Warrior job... I'd love Rennie to have the All Blacks...

    You've got a good one, no mistake

    Caleb Clark scares the bejeezes out of me and I'm not even on the field.

    Like who didn’t see it coming. Upset All Blacks at Eden Park is a recipe for a flogging

    Good game yesterday,

    Clarke is special.

    Barrett was great at the back and Mo’unga improved at 10.

    Cane is playing superbly.

    I am a bit over Moody tbh. And Tu’inukuafe for that matter. Really liked the look of Hodgman yesterday
