Eamon Dunphy likes to pick on Yaya Toure but he could easily have been really describing Nonu’s Super Rugby exhibits when he said of the Man Vicinity midfielder, ‘he is lounging somewhere around midfield like a lounge lizard, resembling his wage packet fell in the foot’.
Playing for his lastly team in three years, it seemed like the inside centre was just very happy lazily mosey around New Zealand cashing checks outside of international around.
But Nonu, like the ‘Canes all around, has been rejuvenated this year. They also have Beauden Barrett, Cory Jane, Conrad Johnson and Julian Savea in their backline and they have been devastating at times.
Ideal league leaders, the Chiefs also have impressed and Sonny Bill Williams’ form will make him a big discutir for All Blacks selection. SBW are going to edge out Nonu or Johnson, which is a tough task, but the magician’s sleight of hand as been really as glorious as ever this season.

The most important legendary ten has clearly was beneficial develop Matt Toomua’s play-making tactics and outside him Henry Speight and moreover Christian Lealiifano have been dangerous on top of that.
Tevita Kurdrani has yet to mess up in Super Rugby this year consequently injury but he remains among Wallabies key men ahead of the Overall world Cup.
The Bulls are the basically South African side in the playoff positions at the moment and it has been an inadequate start for their franchises. The Fishes, who made the semi-final in 2010, have been quite poor in a gives a their games and the Stormers keep disappointed too.
It is interesting to see the make-up of the Springbok team though, because the balance of electro-mechanical isn’t located with just one or two clubs. So while their Super Football teams haven’t looked particularly wonderful so far, it isn’t as a deep thinker of the health of their national professionals as it might be in some other countries.
