i have just read that storms and rain will continue for the foreseeable future, we are in for the wettest summer in history by the sound of it, so if i were you, i would bet on the draw.;)

P.s. as i type, my back lawn is floating past the patio window:lol:

I agree, was definately something worth looking forward too... And a draw in any sport was/is/are never nice- always leaving that "something" to be thought of: " IF ONLY"

Not to bad considering we haven't won there in 10 years - 19-8 or 18-9, too much beer to early in the morning causes memory loss :whistling:

yo right Wee-Man. Not great at all. We did not play too bad in the first half, but we definately stuffed up in the second half. And we could not even blame the new rules...LoL. We played exactly the way the All Blacks wanted us to play- as they dictated the game- and btw, you either have ball sense,and gets picked for your talents, or you don't have ball sense and gets chosen because of politics- and here I am not talking about "Quota" players.... Man oh man, there is so many better players in South Africa- Like the whole Blue Bulls team....... Lol, thought I'm gonna get a reaction there....:thumbup::lol::razz:
