    And that article is bullshit imo. Cannot see Harry sitting there feeling sorry for himself and being isolated and reliant on Meghans friends etc. Dude is one of the most people friendly (ex) royal family members.

    For all the cries of modern life etc so many of these commentators are showing some nasty old school worldviews. Bet the non-royals have a list of the less supportive folks, headed up with ol Piers!

    That article was an interest take, and a bit of a swing at/challenge to Megs.

    Watching from the outside we've all assumed she's the diva driving the whole thing (Me-Me-Meghan). This writer is putting it out there that there's two people in the relationship and they'll need to be mutually supportive, with the underlying implication that it's unlikely. What Meghan wants ...

    Injuries from yesterday's preseason game:

    The Crusaders lost openside flanker Billy Harmon to a minor knee knock in the first half, while halfback Mitchell Drummond was taken off early in the second half as a precaution after a head knock.
    
    Hurricanes wing Jonah Lowe left the field with a left shoulder issue, the same injury he suffered last season, which worried coach Jason Holland.
    
    "I'm really hoping that's not as bad as it looks because Jonah is coming back from a shoulder injury and he's worked really hard this pre-season and is in great nick.
    
    "I'm a little bit worried about him, but we'll see how he comes up."

  • RE: Student Loans

    My first few years at uni were a good earner. Low fees and getting a student allowance/bursary. But I had friends who had maximum bank overdrafts back then, purely for entertainment expenses. That included a new stereo for their flat!

    Laurence Fox's response when asked about the next Labour leader was epic. He thought for a few seconds and nominated Sir Keir Starmer as someone who could take on Boris.

    Labour’s Shami Chakrabarti then asked him "what about the women candidates". She soon wished she hadn't...

    Fox replied "It's not about the women.....jeepers creepers" (banging his head on the desk in exasperation and looking at Chakribati)...."OK, sorry, Let me rewind... any of the women then, is that better?.....after all It's really, really important what gender or sex you are. rather that what policies you have or how you approach politics"

    It was fucking glorious.

    The luvvies are triggered and they only make themselves look even more ridiculous . "Disgrace to industry"? ffs the industry is full of perverts and virtue signalling liars, hard to think of any way they be more of a disgrace

    @Stargazer
    Any NZers playing?

    Yes, Kieran Read and - unknown to me - NZ born Jamie Henry for Toyota and Sam Whitelock and (former Highlander prop) Craig Millar for Panasonic.

    Toyota lost 20 to 40 to Panasonic.
