Re: NZ Politics Thread

My community here Glen Eden throws up a case too. Makes sense to give everyone a bit of room when you're out and be out for necessities only for a while.

Re: NZ Politics Thread

Yeah I don't see where government has 100% liability in this either. Something was going to slip through at some stage, now it's up to us, all the people that have been doing fudge all for 100+ days to step up and do the part we are supposed be doing, and the only part we have control of.

Re: NZ Politics Thread

With a bit of luck, we will have some more luck in this one too, hopefully it works out to be a good scare and a manageable spread. It's probably time we all took a bit more personal responsibility in this whole drama. The expectation that we just leave it up to others while we carry on the party is...

Aussie plan reads fine. Let's hope it works out that way.
Not convinced of the crossover super 8 proposal, just looks too contrived and a bit boring, I imagine the origin series on FTA would be a winner.

Re: Will there be any SH test rugby in 2020?

I'm not convinced we need an RC this year. I was all for it to get international rugby on the board, but hosting the entire thing in one country is just a huge asterisk.

Asking the Argies and Saffers to head over here and stay for maybe 7 weeks all up? I don't see it being a fair fight in all that.

That sunstrike looks like it's getting progressively worse. You wonder if the accuracy might drop for the Saders second half.

I recall the old Lancaster park having a similar aspect. I might be wrong though.

He's waiting for a tiny pacific island nation with a small population and nothing to offer to decide what to do before he rescues Australian Rugby from ruin with a massive deal involving hugely increased income from private investors and broadcasters, while his players are on ration wages?
