    “I get my hair done in the morning and that usually takes 30 minutes and I usually have a walk and get some lunch,” he said.

    lol....Can you imagine tough blokes like Brian Hambly, Ronny Lynch, Bob O'Reilly getting their hair done for 30 minutes on game day....

    "Things are different today, I hear every mother say"....

    I couldn't believe when I saw him running to get into the backline when we were setting a scrum near our line.

    So then it wasn't a surprise that they ran around him a couple of seconds later to score that try.

    Why put a cumbersome backrower in the backline defensively is beyond my comprehension.

    Who the hell thinks a guy that has lateral movement deficiencies should be out there?

    What the hell?

    I thought it was whilst Normy was in the bin. Probably Manu or Kenny should have been defending, can't remember who was out there at the time

    With Norman off the field, whom would you have defended on the left, three in from the sideline?

    Both were defending four in on their sides, though I agree Ma'u probably should have swapped with Moeroa, at least at that scrum. Lessons learned.

    Mau is a lot more mobile and probably should of even the man, but Tep won't be the last person who gets burnt for pace by Morgan. He is lightning.

    It didnt even habe anything to do with lateral speed or whatever physical shit ... tepai had him covered just go sucked in by a dummy runner back on the inside and stopped chasing, thats all morgan needed, he probably would have burned norman if it was him too ... it was a bad read not a physical deficiency

    Well, even if Bob O'Reilly did want to get his hair done good on game day.....is there any way you could possibly stretch the job out 30 minutes? :)

    If you factor in back hair then there is at least 30 min worth of styling.

    And the additional space caused by the missing defender with the man in the bin.

    As pou said, hopefully lesson learned.

    Especially by Norman in the first place)

    True. And Moeroa was probably let down by whoever should have been pushing from the inside.
