R.McCaw dispels alldoubts about his form

http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/all-blacks/5404647/Richie-McCaw-dispels-all-doubts-about-his-form
TOBY ROBSON 08/08/2011

If you were getting just a tad concerned about Richie McCaw's form before Saturday's Bledisloe Cup match, you weren't alone.

All Blacks coach Graham Henry revealed yesterday the skipper himself was having a few quiet moments of self-doubt in the buildup to the test.

The bad news for the rest of the rugby world is McCaw reached into his top drawer against the Wallabies as he led them to a 30-14 win.

"He played his best game of the year last night, I thought, didn't he," Henry said. "He is pleased. He's been anxious about his form."

McCaw came into the test season underdone after battling a foot injury through the Super rugby season, but hasn't taken long to shake off the rust.

He topped the tackle count at Eden Park with 15, was prominent with ball in hand and ever-present at the breakdown as he outplayed young rival David Pocock.

There was also a decisiveness to his captaincy, a shot at goal signalled without hesitation in the 67th minute when the All Blacks were ahead 27-12.

Blindside Jerome Kaino was also superb, adding another block in his reputation as a heavy hitter.

Assistant coach Steve Hansen said Kaino "imprinted himself on a few Australians", but Kaino will show his softer side in taking two weeks out before the cup to be with his pregnant partner.
The Aucklander will travel to South Africa, with No8 Kieran Read expected to be given another break to spend time with his young family in Christchurch.

That could mean a final chance against the Springboks for Liam Messam to push his cup claims after missing the playing squad in Auckland.

Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In the event you write a novel which is entirely different in size to some standard in the genre, then the possibilities of one's novel
getting successful will all but disappear. Reading is
a culture that is engrained in mainly the western culture.

The sixteen novels of this series consistently reach the number ranking in the New
York Times best-seller list.

Nevertheless imagine if you added some great images or videos to

I comment when I appreciate a article on a blog or if I have something to valuable
to contribute to the conversation. Usually it's caused by the passion communicated in the
post I looked at. And after this article "R.McCaw dispels alldoubts about his form".
I was actually excited enough to post a thought ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
Could it be only me or do some of the responses look like left by
brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to keep
up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make
a list all of all your communal pages like your
twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
