    • Referring to Matamata based Japanese Jockey Taiki Yanagida,brought down in a Race at Cambridge last week,and never came out of coma,passing away earlier this week. Interviewed on subject,Ellis was quoted as being ignorant on subject of Jockey Deaths in NZ Races.
    • People, which is incorrect based on number of jockeys deaths in South Island.
    • Agree. There are some class players in there , but to my mind Sam Cane is a journey man and not a leader, Smiths day has come and gone , as has Beaudin, and at least one of his brothers. The other two brothers Ioane should be sacked as well, along with  , Angus Ta,avou( he was monstered by the Spring Boks opposite), Dane Coles way past it, Sam Whitelock way past it.  The backs coach (I wonder who) is clueless. They have no idea how to combat the defence systems they have encountered, shuffling the ball sideways or kicking it back to the opposition.  Shameful stuff and schoolboy errors to boot.   Silverlake must be squirming in their seats.
    • What is this in relation to Gospel? Based on post the poster listened to RNZ & heard a person Ellis saying no race deaths for 100 years. Is that meaning horse death or a person or both?
    • I've got some sympathy for Foster but if you look at his record it just doesn't stack up. The Chiefs were pretty mediocre when he coached them. The ABs need a clean out. Forget the Cup next year and get the young ones in now to blood them. Also look at allowing overseas players in like the Boks do.  
    • @Gospel Of Judas did you get on Son of Mac? Tough win parked the whole way over 2200m from tough draw. Cant seem to find where/see how the other 2yo Marshall runner got on in non tote.  A number of 2yos coming thru now 👍
    • Ok. Had no idea about that.  On another note unrelated to China/Mongolia re idea - will have a think & if come up with any over weekend will post. 
    • Talking to a knowledgeable rugby man(no eye patch) in Kiwi this morning. His opinion is that Schmidt  won't take  the job(Personally I think he is the best man for the job) if Fozzy stumbles this weekend, as he wants to have more quality time in NZ. So does this mean that Robertson gets the job by forfeit? Personally, I still think there is an on field  player issue.
    • Teeing off in Northern Ireland in an hour or so . Note, playing two different  courses for Rnds 1 and 2 at Galgorm Castle and Massereene.Players who make the cut will play the last two rnds at Galgorm Castle.Really hard to find value this week in all tournaments. Northern Ireland: Horsey  Syme  Tarrio  Catlin     Roughie Easton.  USA: Im  Kim  Sheffler and Smith who has had a freshen up since his Open win, and drops a new tested driver into the bag. Last off the list Fitzy. We will have a few small each ways on... Hudeboll and Kimsey, who are drawn together on the Challenge Tour.  LPGA: Pedersen and Talley  who play the same courses as the men in N Ireland. Maguire looks like one to definitely  add for muilti takers  on home turf. Multi takers looking to add a bit more value  could choose  between  An  Dou Hall and the two Kim's on the Korn Ferry Tour Good Luck
