Akira is on for the last few minutes! I guess if you travel all the way down there you want to stretch your legs...

Choat on debut over now!

And he wins the turnover to end the game. Nicely done.

Auckland win, 56-8. Southland with a 3 day turnaround and a million changes - so yeah... rough on them.

Many of us were picking 100 point loss, guess the cold caught AKL out. Pretty sure I saw an Auckland water boy sporting a Stags beanie :lol:

No idea!

I had a flick through the start of the game, and HT, but didn't see a name. No graphic popped up and he didn't introduce himself.

This is gonna bug me now...

Better than Richard Turner as the lead commentator, which we've had in recent times. He's such a bloody dawdler. Spit it out Pod!

That loss, their 20th in a row, was a record breaker for Southland. They have relieved Northland of the unwanted title of most consecutive losses in the top divisions. They still have some way to go to catch East Coast who hold the record across all divisions at 40 losses and counting, dating back to 2013.

And Tasman thumped Hawkes Bay 29 0 to take top spot, in the meantime.

HB battled well in horrid weather but tried a bit too hard at times, pushing the pass, and were a bit unlucky with some refereeing decisions, whereas Tasman just knuckled down and played the patient game. The two old locks (both past 35) and Crockett were in their element.

The merger of those two unions to create Tasman has to be the most successful merger ever. Tasman is tiny, yet they seem to always be up in the upper tier of teams.

Auckland will hate-fvck them though, come the final. I know the rest of the country will be supporting Auckland, since we all know Tasman is an offshot of the Evil Empire. If you can please buy a scarf or two directly from the ARFU to help support the minnows from Auckland. Thanks everyone.

Smart team play the tactics best suited to the weather while the youngsters don't know how to adapt. ;)

If Canterbury can't win it (and they look a long shot) I will be backing the mighty Makos.

If Ben Lam wants to be an AB he needs to come up with a better tackle than that.

Bachop is ruining this fir the Lions. No clue on wet n windy rugby.

The halfback has to call the forwards in closer too. Trying to pass to far in this weather see the inevitable happen.

Ben Lam has never been AB material.

Welly are doing OK. This is a 14 point wind, at least. Not quite like the 500 point wind when Auckland beat naki on the same ground some years back. That was something else. Auckland lead 7-0 at HT going into the wind, and it was as good as 70-0. naki never looked like scoring in the 2nd half.

He was trying to place it but there was yet another Naki body lying there. It's f**king frustrating watching the game get murdered .
