This week on Out Of The Box with Daniel McHardy, Nigel Yalden & Brian Ashby.
Sam Whitelock has resigned for four more years, most likely making him the next All Blacks long-term captain.
He will head for a stint in Japan however, is there any issue with him not playing Super Rugby but playing for the ABs?
Richie Mo'unga also resigned during the week, Beauden Barrett is still yet to recommit.
Super Rugby rolls on and so do the Crusaders, swatting the Lions away, they face the Sharks next at home again.
The Highlanders emphatically kept their season alive and well with a thrashing of the Sunwolves.
And the Hurricanes demolished the Chiefs who desperately lacked any sort of attention to detail on defence.
