I had planned to do this a couple of days ago but was delayed by the glitch in the matrix.

Better late than never. :)

(And my thanks to someone from somewhere else whose handiwork helped speed up the process for me. You'll figure out who you are. ;) )

I see the Canes are playing in their alternate strip in solidarity for the Blues region being in lockdown.

I though it was a tactic to confuse the ref by looking as similar as possible to the Highlanders.

Great try!

It is a slightly off colour strip.

That pass to Jordie looked interesting - maybe just the camera angle as nothing mentioned and not checked.

Mr Dominator/Floppykid et al. mode - this isn't rugby, should only be 3-3.

Ardie with the Carlos pass to himself.

Is that far touchline regulation width?

Ben Okeefe really is trying his hardest to keep the Landers in this game, Have you seen so many call backs from tries?

Crusaders never get this treatment

Canes forwards lack any punch , always in the backline not ready to do the hard yards

There’s a lot of cynical play by the Landers out there but Okeefe is only watching one side atm

Penalty count is horribly one sided

Agree... but then right now the Canes are hard on attack on the Landers line courtesy of two forward passes...and immediately the Canes score off that false advantage

Landers scored a try after an Ash Dixon knock on, the penalty count is lopsided still
