The All Blacks turn it on at Eden Park with big win over Ireland

He was Junior player of the year I think 2010 (and 2009 was Aaron Cruden) and he has a lot of exp in the Juniors. But it was pretty reassuring how well he took to the game for someone in their first test. Like you said most debuts are a 20min cameo at the end of the game.

The All Blacks turn it on at Eden Park with big win over Ireland

Red card for Kearney I think for tackling Dan Carter at the end there and not letting him get a try.

Also NZ gave away a LOT of turnovers, which is concerning, but for now I'll chalk it up to first test and everyone wants to have a run.

Classic Encounters - The Blues vs Chiefs thriller in North Harbour

Kinda shows that the Blues would have been much much better had Wulf and Ranger not been injured. Even better if Mealamu and Kaino were still there to bring some order.

Unfortunately Nonu and Weepu decided to suck this season.

Celebrating Dan Carter's milestone of 100 Super Rugby games

To me at least, best 10 of the modern era, and first player I'd pick in a pickup game. Best defensive 10 too, he's made so many important tackles and even turnovers for Crusaders and All Blacks. Just insanely talented, and humble and down to earth to go with it. Much nicer to follow a player who seems like a really good guy than one getting arrested every weekend or something.

I think he'll still have enough left to play in the 2015 WC, I hope so at least. And luckily it seems NZ finally has some good young 10s coming through (Taylor, Barrett, Anscombe, as well as Slade and Cruden still) to recover.
