Oh crap it was on Tuesday! Oh crap crap crap.

Well at least everyone got shellacked so the average won't be as bad...DAMMIT!

I think for the good of sportsman-like conduct you should at least admit if you were going to go for a Manawatu victory! :D Then we'll add a few extra points to your tally!

Hey now don't kick a man while he's down. We lost to England 2 weeks ago, the US last weekend, and we're going to get shellacked by Argentina on Saturday.

Meanwhile I'm going to get hosed with a crapload of points for missing the Manawatu game.

Oh well, at least I get to referee Sevens rugby for 3 straight days starting Thursday in the World Policemen and Firemen Games. There's nothing better than being able to boss around a bunch of people that carry firearms for a living!

On second thought, I may not make it back to Montreal this weekend...

What happened to my clearly accurate Lions and 33 points? ;)

How come I get penalised one point more (80) than the guys who didn't make a posting at all ! Mathematical inconsistency in the rules - lol.

Although delighted with all the tries, I hadn't expected even a second div NZ province to roll over that much !

And the Lions actually managed to put some continuity together.

I look forward to watching Saturday's fixture - over breakfast in Jo-burg South Africa, be interesting to see who the locals are shouting for !
