Okay, so anybody missing sufficient of a life to be studying me week-in week-out is conscious that I’ve been choosing an Aussie Tremendous Workforce of the Week from the Tremendous competitors so far. Eligibility is straightforward sufficient: in the event you’ve been enjoying for an Aussie franchise, you will get picked. Given we’ve been going a couple of weeks, I assumed to tally some outcomes, divide them by 7, multiply by variables (relying on haircuts) and choose a Workforce of the Tourney thus far. So with out additional ado, right here goes…

Week 5 TotW:

  1. James Slipper – age shall not weary him, at the same time as he equals Stephen Moore’s 176 Tremendous caps.

Workforce of the Tremendous Tourney (so far):

Choice standards: TotW beginning aspect bought 5pts and TowT bench jersey earned 4pts:

Feedback on the above:

  • Congratulations to LSL. He brings such good play, consistency and mobility in such a giant body. He’s my captain because it stands.
  • Huge ups to Zane Nonggorr. He’s actually coming alongside. And having Jeff T-Allen to be taught from is nothing however a present. However frankly, there’s not a lot home competitors for the no3 jersey. Rhys van Nek might but flip into one thing good, however we’d like extra particularly from we-all-know-who.
  • Tate McD tied with Ryan Louwrens, so I picked Tate reflecting the Qld good season so far.
  • The Qld backrow weren’t good final weekend. However they have been ok within the tourney so far to carry down the beginning unfastened trio and preserve Bobby V on the bench.
  • Examine Noah Lolesio’s stats. The dialogue about who must be the Wobbly no10 on present kind is just about over guys.
  • Some might not like Rob Leota at 19 (usually reserve lock). However the subsequent lock was Nick Frost at 1 cap for 5pts. So Rob earned it by the factors, and as he has additionally performed lock earlier than.
  • There have been a stack of men in rivalry for No22 (reserve midfield) with 1 cap and 5pts together with Kuenzle, Gordon, Joey Walton, Sam Spink and others. I nominated Sticky because the decide of that group.

Random ideas from the random man:

  • Isn’t it nice to see the combo up on the Tremendous desk? Crusaders final, Drive off the underside, Donkeys close to the highest. The best criticism of Tremendous Rugby lately has been the predictability of outcomes. However not so now.
  • Congratulations to the Drua for the performances and crowd they prove for residence matches. There are an rising quantity of folks making the journey to Fiji now only for the expertise. I’ve a mate who took his little household ex Sydney final weekend and he says it was one of the best household journey they’ve ever had.
  • What an ideal weekend to be a Westralian. Males’s and girls’s bought up I consider for the primary time as a duo. Extra energy to them. And in the event you get the prospect, watch the ladies’s replay and go try the Forcies enormous, unstoppable, 25-metre driving maul earlier than half time. From a clear lineout win they surged alongside till blissful hooker Cline grabbed the pie and Wooden to squirt the sauce efficiently from out broad.
  • Okay the Reds had a hiccup. The Forcies performed nicely little question, however the Reds will bounce again. For me, the fascinating one is the Tahs. I can’t assist however really feel they’ve a break-out for the great coming quickly. However it must be quickly (as in now guys). Don’t get me improper, I dislike the Tahs as a lot as ever. However a robust NSW is simply as essential as a robust Qld and ACT group to the Wobbs proper now.
  • I famous on LinkedIn earlier this 12 months that the Crusaders have opened a Enterprise Management College/Programme. For approx US$1,000 you go for a two-week intensive course to be taught management, sustainability and succession planning from one of the best within the enterprise, apparently. I’m not laughing, I’m genuinely not. I feel it’s a improbable thought/idea leveraging fairly presumably essentially the most profitable consultant aspect in historical past right into a non-core income stream for the betterment of their franchise and thus our recreation. However speak about unhealthy timing for the poor buggers.
Blayney. Bloody chilly. Take your woolies.

Nicely that’s sufficient from me this week Cobbers. Have a nice Easter. Might your chocolate be not melted, might your scorching cross buns be not chilly and will your youngsters be safely inside earlier than the sugar rush wears off and the crash commences. And drive safely if you must drive in any respect.

Peace, out, and remark away to your coronary heart’s content material under.
