  • Christ Li is dumb. Probably bombed a try there.



  • Harbour have just scored to make it 20-30 in their favour.

    Strange game this one.
    Some really crap kicking mixed with really crap catching is making a lot of messy play with the ball bouncing around everywhere...
    When they decide to keep ball in hand, its been bloody good watching.



  • Harbour running away with it now 20-38.

    Southland cant buy a trick in the second half. Just too many errors



  • Not the most exciting game but harbour got the result they needed as a premiership team.

    Thought they would slip up here tonight to be honest but more than happy with bonus point win



  • Good win for one of New Zealand's premier teams.

    Very disappointed to see Parsons out of the headgear during the after match interview.



  • honestly thought Southland would be better than that, was some woeful defence out there.



  • @Tim You finally have a decent coach! 😉



  • Thought the two Bryn's played really well. Good win.



  • @ACT-Crusader Gatland has been pretty sharp. Good distance on his kicking has put the opposition on the back foot.
