All Blacks fined for waterboy Liam Messam joining on field scuffle

I believe they don't want all the teams facing the ABs to do something each and every time.
BTW, Steve Hansen wanted the NZRU to pay the fine for us, because he believes it was stupid to fine us for answering the Haka :)

All Blacks fined for waterboy Liam Messam joining on field scuffle

I believe they saw that Messam was not entering for a fight , hence the small fine. It looks to me more a warning than an actual fine.
Maybe Nonu was overreacting to something that happened just before?

And i definitively love Nigel Owens :)

Australia stun New Zealand to win the 2015 Rugby Championship in Sydney

I believe you both remember the 3 games in June tests between Ireland and NZ in NZ ? If yes, the second match was in Christchurch and Ireland only lost by 2 points. And at the third match, the ABs were so furious that they thrashed Ireland with a score like 60-nil ?

Brilliant Richie McCaw lineout move first done vs Springboks by Samoa in 2013

Thanks alot, PD, for your link. Pictures speak more clearly than text. So Richie McCaw was at the right place.

@calvdog: the ABs were not poisoned in 2012, half of the English population had the virus that same week. But it's true that the first thing that popped out of my mind when I learned the ABs were sick (again) was "Suzie!", lol.

I believe you are too hard with Delon Armitage. And he was actually enjoying the match.

All Blacks score late to deny Springboks in another Ellis Park classic

Do you know which French clubs are taking young NZ players to France ? And how can this be accepted by NZ rugby ?

Flyhalf Lima Sopoaga set to make All Blacks Test debut against Springboks

Hansen will know if he can take him for the World Cup and at what rank. He looks like a very nice guy.
