Re: NZ Politics Thread

Does anyone know whether Kiri Allan has any credentials in the Conservation portfolio. Nothing specific that I can find. I understand she's spent plenty of time foraging around in the bush. Sorry. You’re excused. She’s actually a nice person (in person) and I look forward to working with her. I hav...

Re: Bled III: Aus v NZ: MATCH THREAD: Sydney 31st Oct

Happy with all the YCs. You’ve got to take the ref out of the game. In all those cards they absolutely the ref get involved. That last card was all about going in to the wrong tackling zone. Great result and pretty ruthless first half. Second half was dusty apart from the last few. Big drop in accur...

Re: NZ Politics Thread

I'm in Wellington. I'll happily take 3 days of mild inconvenience to 6 weeks of lock-down.

And anyone who says that the message of "when not it" wasn't out there all throughout is being disingenuous. There is no conspiracy here folks.

fudge. Even the Crusaders on the sideline are laughing at that call.

Anyway. Massive scrum there. Saders just know how to pick their moments in the last 20 of a game. That stat where it showed they score around 40% of their points in this zone.

It's true, but the 'pro era' qualifier is nitpicky. Aus in 91 knocked out NZ and then won the final.
