    In one of Hoppa jr's articles he said that being coached by Kearney was also a factor in signing for the eels. The bloke has won nothing. He's been assistant coach for all major achievements od and team he was involved in. Good luck Hoppa.

    Incorrect, he is kiwis head coach for the World Cup and 4 nations wins

    He is over rated though

    Stand corrected but the assistant coach was Wayne Bennett.

    For the world cup it was you are right and he obviously would have had some influence over it
    I'm not convinced about Kearney completely as a coach tbh but haven't written him off. With a poor squad I thought he did reasonably well with the Eels this year,sounds stupid considering they were 15th, but 7 of the losses were within a try so could have been a touch higher up the ladder than they were with a bit of luck

    This effort today from the kiwis is disgraceful though and really shows up a lack of defensive structure

    Just how many times do the kiwis have to get absolutely pumped before you kiwi chuck jockeys admit your national team is an absolute joke? Good halves, decent centres and 2 backs (locke,matai)

    When will test rugby league benefit from these great juniors they have?

    Hate watching it when australia has no real competition.....boring as ****[hr]
    Even the pack is sub par...i wish the all blacks played league....

    love it when Kiwis fans all talk about all their juniors coming through, 110kg, 6ft 5, run 100mt in 11 seconds and you find out they're talking about their women. :D

    Yeah but the eels were one of the early favorites this year. Iknow they had injuries but they didn't even make the 8. Losing at the death of a lot of games this year was lack of discipline imo.

    Lol, thats because Sheens run sides are that over confident they lose when the real big games hit (see last 2 finals series)

    Oh im sorry do I sound like I want australia to win? I want more losses....so wins actually have some meaning, australia needs to lose more, its not manly out there and its utterly boring viewing....

    I tend to barrack for the team with more Manly players.

    Same goes for Origin.

    Sheens was only around for 1 of those lol

    Those results show that Australia is no longer a walk up win

    The top 20-25 players is pretty evenly matched, the difference between the 2 countries is depth and when the kiwis need to dip lower than that number of players

    Two things the match showed:
    1. You get a better standard of football during daylight. It was action-packed.
    2. You only need one referee. That English ref did a good job, and proved that our system of two-refs is wrong.

    Kiwis never do well in one of tests but finals on the other hand is where the Kiwis shine

    Two ref. system is hopeless. More contentious decisions than ever since it was brought in. The NRL need to bite the bullet and admit it's been a failure. (Can't see that happening though).
