It was another bitterly disappointing outcomes for the local rugby team. The Wellington Lions were in the final of the New Zealand cup this Saturday playing in Hamilton against Waikato. Despite the number of current or former ABs (All Blacks) on the team, they were still defeated 37-31. Never mind, they can’t win them all. The fact it would be nice that they won a final once is beside the point.
With the domestic season over the ABs are heading north next weekend to try their luck in the Northern Hemisphere. It will be divided loyalties when they arrive in England – I think given our location we’ll have to cheer for our new home team. I trust that our friend and family will take close interest on our behalf but we’d appreciate you keeping the score quiet till we’ve had chance to wake up and watch the recorded match!
