Cruden guides All Blacks to crushing win....
November 25, 2012, 08:03:21

...another great game for SuperXV winning standoff from the Almighty Chiefs, where else?

...against the Welsh and who would have thought they used to kick our butts on a regular basis way back when?

...and how many times has Aaron Cruden ever played in a losing all Black team??

Get back to me Bean Brain when you have the answer...like never haha..

outstanding performance from cruden for sure there brother brycy, he couldnt have been to far behind McCaw for man of the match too.

IMO this was crudens best performance of 2012 and thats taking into account the 20min massacre of ireland in the 3rd test back in june.

i also think that he was due a big performance, cos while hes been dependable in the tests hes started in this year, he hasnt transferred the 2012 spXV form he had where he was the best flyhalf by miles.

hope he has another big 2013, cos if hansen and carter are serious about carter playing in the 2015 RWC, then cruden needs to start more matches for the All Blacks and help lighten careters load.
maybe give carter the real big matches like Boks/wallabies but split the rest of the tests evenly bewteen carter/cruden/barret. all i know is carter cant play every game from here to 2015 and expect to play in the RWC.

@brycy,

whats ur take on augustine pulu???

 

he really impressed me this year and i thought it was silly of him to remain at the chiefs, cos he would have gotten more spXV gametime elsewhere as he is currently behind barlow and leonard.

i thought he should have gone to the blues, cos mathewson is with the force now and weepu is playing on borrowed time.
highlanders was another option, cos they have japanese halfback tanaka as the back up.

IMO pulu has the potential to be an All Black, very similar game to aaron smith, but more explosive, but his ball delivery is right up there.
