There was definitely a lot of confusion about it being the All Blacks too. Just this morning I was wearing a rugby shirt and my barber was asking me if I went to see the All Blacks when they were here in Denver last summer. It wasn't too bad of a match, though, and it was probably net neutral for rugby union in the area.


I remember us discussing the Test on the board here and I stating that people were posting #AllBlacks #AllBlackEverything as hashtags on their instagram. In fact it was a coupe thousand posts irc.

How can you be contracted to a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardiotocography ?
Joking aside, acronyms to such a broad audience who might lack specific inside in another country's rugby are sometimes a bad idea.
What does CTG mean? I googled and I couldn't find an answer.

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

The only thing stopping George right now was him not being a regular starter for Seawolves last season. He's a bloody tank, talented enough to get an Academy spot with ASM. So yeah, I don't get it. He'd definitely be an upgrade at 12.

Centralized Training Group. Although I use the acronym in several posts, it's kind of been explained several times in this thread. Which is why I haven't typed it out often.

No, no, no my friend, we Germans don't have humour. Also please don't mention the war.
So Central training group it is. Thanks Strobro. To be fair I've stumbled upon CTG more than just a few times, but chose that now the time was to ask for it.
