Nice team there. I would pick pretty much the same side as you. You'd think being a northern hemisphere tour they'd pick more northern hemisphere players....

That teams good enough to beat us I reckon, especially as we're likely to roll out the dirt trackers again for that game.

Mallet is a smart enough coach to bring out the best in that BaaBaa team and he's also had the benefit of seeing first hand what our second squad is capable of after the Italian game too.

Roberts/Fourie makes for an absolutely massive midfield and unless McCaw plays, it'll be very, very difficult to get ontop of a loosie trio of Smith/Burger/Elsom.

If that BaaBaa team gells we could be in for a rough finish to the tour.

Very true - it all comes down to whether they gel or not, and whether they play free-for-all or not...

All Black team for BaaBaa game announced:

New Zealand: Cory Jane, Ben Smith, Tamati Ellison, Luke McAlister, Zac Guildford, Stephen Donald, Brendon Leonard, Rodney So'oialo, Richie McCaw (captain), Liam Messam, Anthony Boric, Jason Eaton, John Afoa, Corey Flynn, Wyatt Crockett. Reserves: Andrew Hore, Neemia Tialata, Adam Thomson, Tanerau Latimer, Jimmy Cowan, Mike Delany, Sitiveni Sivivatu.

If anyone deserved a rest I would've thought it was McCaw but that just shows his character I suppose.

That is a poor loosie combination apart from Richie, especially Messam who is incredibly over rated.

Boo! Messam is a beast! It's the best loose forward combination we've had all tour, only Adam Thomson could make it better.

Current Squad 6s:

1. Read
2. Thompson
3. Kaino
4. Boric
5. Eaton
6. Messam

And that is leaving out Richie who would likely head the list

You're dreaming, Messam has never amounted to anything, much like his fellow 7s player blindside Victor Vito

Messam's never been really given a chance. Let's see how he fares shall we?

As for Vito - the future is very much still in front of him - whether he steps up remains to be seen.

We saw him in Dunedin, he failed. We saw him in Milan, once again he was poor. He isn't even that good in provincial rugby to warrant being in the squad in the first place

He failed in Dunedin, along with virtually the entire team.

Didn't see the Italy game so can't comment explicitly - but from what I've heard/read - seems the whole team was again poor.

He was very noticeable missing tackles still and knocking the ball on at crucial times

knocking the ball on at crucial times, I know a certain K. Read that is guilty of that.

Still remember Donald screwing up a certain try for Jane in the game against Munster last year. Why they subbed of Piri and left Donald on boggled the mind...
