Seattle led 12-0 at halftime and held on to win 29-21.
Mako website so far just says a good contest in the wet.
@Snowy Look no further than the NZ Women today! Capitulating vs SA.
From the little I've read, they like the look of Adithya Ashok - an Indian legspinner. He's only 16 so eligible for another go at the U19s, but did well vs Sri Lanka.
He did well in the crunch match vs Sri Lanka...and you can see guys who scored runs.
Australia and India - heavyweight bout that might have been expected to be the final, but the Windies threw a spanner in the works.
Windies vs NZ - Windies are perhaps the form team having beaten both Oz and England, but they have shown a bit of top order fragility.
Bangladesh vs South Africa - Home team got badly beaten by Afghanistan, but qualified from a soft looking group. Bangladesh qualified top ahead of Pakistan because the match between the two was washed out - with Pakistan looking well on top.
Afghanistan vs Pakistan - Both teams won two games easily and had a washout. Possibly the two best teams from their rain affected groups.
@booboo Yeah - I wouldn't put a lot of money on Whetu, but he's probably the best Crusaders loosie prospect - though Ethan Roots seems to have some wraps (or raps?) on him. I was very impressed with Sanders when I first saw him for the U20s (or NZ schools?), but injury has hampered him - and will hamper Blackadder this season.
I really hope Fozzie puts some thought into incorporating some size into his backline this year. Laumape will help with that, but people like Mataele and Faingaanuku (even though they're raw) could as well.
I think we missed having the power of people like Nonu and Big Jules in last year's team.
@Snowy No - I've just persisted on with my standard trap and caught an unwary rat in it a couple of weeks ago.
I wonder whether you could try baiting your rat trap with peanut butter instead of whatever flavours they've given you (I think I saw chocolate in the store). Peanut butter is the best bait I've come across.
I am still somewhat tempted by these re-setting traps though, because where they've nested is an incredibly difficult place to get near to in the ceiling - so I don't want to be crawling there every day to re-set a trap (or peer at an empty one).
