Bryce Lawrence Archive

Two more rounds before the play-offs and still nine teams in with a shout of qualifying for the top six. Exciting times ahead and no mistake. Last week the Chiefs, Hurricanes and Bulls (at least for the first 60mins) were the most impressive sides on display. The Stormers did not have a great game but did enough to secure the win over the Lions and the Reds kept their play-off chances alive with a solid win over the Rebels. The big surprise of the round was the Crusaders going down to the Hurricanes at home, which not only makes it impossible for them to top the Kiwi conference but heaps the pressure on as they now cannot afford to lose another game. It must be said that the Hurricanes were a wee bit assisted by some sketchy officiating by the New Zealand ref of the year 2011, Bryce douchebag Lawrence. Slow clap Bryce, way to not improve. The Hurricanes now find themselves in a three-way tie at 6th on the log but are smiling as they have a bye this week. When asked for comment, captain Conrad Smith had this to say “It’s okay, if it’s in a three-way”. Hard [&hellip

Referees are often the talking points of games and sometimes have big influences on results which can be FiretrUCKING fairly frustrating. More frustrating is when there seems to be no repercussions after terrible reffing performances, or worse when Paddy O’ Douche publicly backs a SHITake performance, like he did after Bryce Lawrence’s shocker in the RWC2011 quarter-final. Well good news everyone… Paddy O’ Brian has been shunted off to look after the Sevens refs and Bryce has been dropped from the elite referee panel. Yesss. This has got to be good for the game and was a long time coming. For more insight into Bryce’s thought pattern during the game, let’s re-visit his decision flow chart. Quality! Back to the Super Rugby action and 4 more games this Saturday, let’s delve, balls deep. Super Rugby Round 6, 31 Mar 2012 Brumbies vs Sharks At the start of the season I would have said that the Sharks would take this game at a canter but now I am not so sure. The Brumbies recently beat the as then, undefeated Highlanders and are looking better and better. They do not have any major injury concerns and are building in confidence game by [&hellip

So here it is rugby fans, the final! After many many weeks of non stop ref cursing, beer drinking, early morning wake ups and mostly high quality rugby action adventures, we have one more game left. Either New Zealand or France will be the new Rugby World Cup champions and well done to them for making it this far. Both Wales and South Africa will have reasons to be bleak as both could have made it further but that is all in the past and it now mostly irrelevant. How about we stop talking about it and move on, what do you say? No? Still can’t let go? Fine suit yourselves. So the burning questions are whether France can lift their game enough to once again shock the world with an upset victory over the All Blacks in a RWC and can the All Blacks sufficiently deal with the pressure and not choke? On current form the All Blacks should win this game comfortably but let’s dive in, balls deep and take a closer look. Rugby World Cup Final 2011: All Blacks vs France France have a very good scrum and their front row is considered one of the best [&hellip

In all honesty, it still feels like I have been kicked in the jollies when I think about last Sunday’s Springboks vs Wallabies quarter-final. There has been a huge outcry about how shockingly SHITake Bryce Lawrence’s officiating actually was with over 70,000 South Africans people joining a Facebook Petition to stop Bryce Lawrence from ever reffing a rugby game again Awesome. When asked for comment Pieter de Villiers had this to say… Thank you Zapiro. So who will be the other team in the final? Come a little closer, let’s get involved… RWC2011 Semi-final 2: Australia vs All Blacks Word on the 22 is that Kurtley Tache Beale is in massive doubt for the semi-final due to a hamstring injury. Beale has been one of the form players in the world this year and it will be a huge blow to Robbie Deans if he is ruled out. Chances are James O’Connor or Adam Ashley-Cooper will take his place but the backline will be weaker for it and the All Blacks will be smiling. Other than that there looks to be no other changes even though some will surely be calling on Berrick Barnes to step into the side somewhere. [&hellip

So here we are, only 3 more fixtures and we will have new 2011 Rugby World Cup champions. Highly entertaining matches this past weekend, starting with Wales smashing Ireland with a quality display. Looks like the tough pool they endured has benefitted them immensely and they have built up good momentum and are playing with composure and confidence that belies their inexperienced squad. France surprised everyone, even their own countrymen, by finally playing with some flair and purpose in disposing of an albeit crap English side. Well done Les Bleus! There is still a chance they could play the All Blacks in the final….which would be interesting to say the least? The All Blacks beat Argentina comfortably and their ability to change their game-plan and playing style midway through a match is a quality that will surely help them finally put the ol’ choker’s tag to bed once and for all. A lot has been said about Bryce douchbag Lawrence and his terrible officiating of the Boks vs Wallabies game. He basically decided to not ref the breakdown at all, missed high tackles, misjudged forward passes and failed to inform O’Connor that he could re-take his kick after JP Pietersen [&hellip
