>What a night – #1273


The Canterbury Crusaders had already dedicated their game against the New South Wales Waratahs to November’s Pike River mining disaster before Christchurch’s earthquake hit and their stadium was damaged.
So 11,000 Nelsonians – most wearing red and black to support the almost-locals – turned up at Trafalgar Park the other night to watch them play in West Coast colours and enjoy a comprehensive 33-18 win over the Waratahs.

Dan Carter – All Black 1st five-eighths extraordinaire – scored every conversion and penalty he attempted and Sonny Bill Wiiliams – All Blacks centre (who – as far as I can work out – every New Zealand woman under the age of 70 wants to breed from) scored a try.

Took Steve and Robin (Dad was an All Black) along, sat/stood behind our neighbour Don (cousin was the All Blacks coach) so expertise was on tap en masse
 Captive audience
 Experts and non-expert

  1. >I'm with Genie, I got about half of that but love the photos. So you don't get to sit in bleachers at these things jb?? And I believe I reconize the "non expert"! HAV

  2. >I got the part about "breeding" and the cute kids but the rest….Looks like everyone is having fun anyway!G

  3. >Since I know nothing about this game I'll refrain from making any uneducated comments. I will, however, indicate that the littlies (is that what you call the kids?) don't look half as interesting as the three adults sitting on the grass. Love the red shoes!! I also zoomed and zoomed the photo to see the photo and name en la camisa azul but without any luck.
