London (and UK) Calling!

Posted by

I read an interesting article from the UK the other day regarding some New Zealand rugby players plying their trade in Europe.

Twenty three players were mentioned. Of particular note was that eleven had played for the AB’s and among the 23 there are five numbers 10’s – Nic Evans, Steven Brett, Chris Noakes, Blair Stewart, and Ben Botica. Imagine if the money offered overseas was on the table in New Zealand! With all the talent at 10 pushing for AB selection it makes one realise what a great production line we have here.

I watched the North Harbour v Canterbury game last night, which showed that if you let your guard drop, even a fraction, then an upset is always on the cards.

A big week coming up for the Wellington lions – a must win game against Counties Manukau (if they want to remain in the top tier). Then a tilt at the ‘log of wood’. Hopefully both games bring out the best of a team yet to reach the standards they aspire to!!

I am looking forward to both test matches this weekend. Whoever wins the South Africa/Australia battle will be keeping their fingers crossed that the Argies can make history with a win over the AB’s. I’m picking SA to deal to Australia and NZ to wrap up the Championship with a bonus point win.

Enjoy the weekend of rugby ahead.
