Loved that game DD.

I'm going to be super disappointed if the Mechsw statue doesn't shoot fire out its eyes

Holy flipping fark. What is that thing? Iron Man?

Has he lost his mind?
Can Craig see or is he blind?
Can he stay onside?
Or will he enter rucks from the side?

Is he holding Bill or the Bled?
Has he invisibility cloaks in the shed?
We'll assault him off the ball
When will TMOs make a call?

Can't believe they still haven't raised enough cash for a statch-you-bro. I dropped $4.50 in the donation box when I stopped off in Kurow last month - I was sure that was going to get them over the line.

$4.50! They’re probably building a statue of you for that.

Edit: or a giant wicker man.

Kurow. So is it settled then? McCaw is from Otago. Blatant poach.

The national idolization of McCaw by the NZ public is at times slightly concerning.

Will the locals leave offerings and make sacrifices at the base of this monolith?

Wasn’t his house on the north side of the Waitaki, so while he may have had a Kurow address, he was living in South Canterbury? Canterbury through and through.

Yes, it's an interesting one. I have discussed this at length with an ex of mine who was Otago through and through and while I'm not saying she was stalking (she was stalking) she knows the area very well and reckons because it's a one way road with a roadhead in Otago, the Haka Valley is culturally Otago, and the inhabitants regard themselves as such. Kurow is definitely Otago.

Raises a question about South Cantabrians though too: how Cantabrian are they? Is that a distinct province, or are they just like the Wales of the South Island? (though technically I am saying McCaw is a North Otagoan and the same question applies there.
