At the beginning of the season the Kiwis were my tip for the spoon, but here they are now in 6th place. If you look at their roster, well TBH it's a pretty average bunch of players and their coach is, well pretty average as well. So why are they going so well? the answer to that is the same answer to why we are so poor: 1. Their forwards are aiming up and have a red hot go, ours don't 2. They have a young creative bloke in the halves in Maloney (5/8th), we don't 3. They are playing with great enthusiasm, we aren't 4. They have speed in Locke, Tupou, Vatuvei and others, we don't Hard to believe, but we could learn a little bit from them.
