Re: Beast beaches what yours

Also can't believe nobody has mentioned Aitutaki, Cook islands. Yet. Beautiful. It is indeed. Snorkled down to see Giant clams there. https://www.travelassociates.com/sites/v2.travel-associates.com.au/files/luxury-holidays-news/files/2015/01/CI_353_DK.jpg http://www.picionline.org/weblog/wp-content...

Re: Hurricanes vs Crusaders: MATCH THREAD: Sun 11th April

Just home from the game and the best part of the day for me was a kid of about 15 giving my three year old son his Crusaders flag before the game.

Re: Hurricanes vs Crusaders: MATCH THREAD: Sun 11th April

Referee Williams lovingly serenades for Kirifi to get out of the breakdown, repeatedly pleading with him to keep his hands off. But when the Crusaders have a hint of a hand in the breakdown it's an immediate penalty. You posted this about eh same time the ref loving told Drummond to take his hands ...

Crusaders over the ball tugging like mad, but no holding on penalty? And now a penalty at the next ruck to add insult to injury.

A bit like watching Canterbury in the ITM Cup last year on the frustration stakes. The desired backlash from last week hasn’t eventuated so far.
