RE: AB RWC squad
If this doesn’t make me get a FB account, nothing will. But nope, never going to happen. I’ll stick with The Fern.
No need to have two different sites with fake news and misinformed opinions.
RE: All Blacks v France Test 3
Just reporting back as have now come out of hungover state.
Rugby was great. Didn't view the whole game and can over only a few MVP votes.
First off....the stag on the stag doo. He didn't know anything about the trip, got picked up thursday from auck flown to chch had a night out. Friday we had a pub crawl road trip to Dunedin (he thought it was to Q-town as he thought he got inside word from someone). When we got to Dunedin he was that gone he thought we were in Qtown.
MVP's of the Friday: 3 Points: Random Maori guy at the pub in Ashburton doing 'magic tricks' for everyone including smoking a dobbie with his nostril.
2 points: Akira Ioane: Loved shouting pretty much the whole bar (was out with Laumape....both proving great team culture before a game).
1: The girl we got kicked out for being too thirsty and walking up to everyone in our group and trying to get them to go home with her (literally her first words).
Saturday: 10am beers followed by Hens party dancing lesson at stilitos for the stag and lappy after. Back to studentville for some backyard and drinking on the street then Octy and then rugby.
Stag did well with his '4 more years banner' Wallabies jersey and face painted jumping up anytime anyone scored.
MVP points: 3: The only hot stripper I think Dunedin has ever had
2: Goodhue and the other guys on debut still wearing their All Blacks Caps out in town (mention to him for looking like it was getting him a couple of birds)
1: Akira, again at the bar on Saturday buying big rounds. Recognised me off my face and chucked a drink my way.
RE: Ricky Gervais At Globes
I don't think your average fern reader is likely to be influenced too much by celeb wankery..
I didn't know there was such a thing as an average ferner... Just a bunch of above average athletes struck down by alcohol, girls and gambling and some mysterious injury just before they cracked it into the professional rugby ranks.
RE: What position did you play?
Lock/6/8 (pretty sure thats what most locks say when they want to not play lock)
Loved my footy growing up played most of the age group reps from 9-12 years old. Got to play with and against some really good players growing up in HB in what was a pretty good period for HB rugby.
Played 3 years of 1st 15. Coach had sat me down in 5th form and outlined what big aspirations he had for me and how he thought I could be the next big name to add to his Taine Randall/John Timu list. God knows where he got that idea from.... I was always really fit but never had any type of acceleration or top-end speed. I could just keep up my average sprint for a whole game. I just generally looked like I was more places because I was alright at reading the game. I think he was excited because I was 189cm at 15 and he thought I would still grow and then fill out my frame (was 72kg)....
I certainly filled out the frame but didn't grow another CM taller. Plodded along after that and career highlights were few and far between. Literally the list is 50+ games for a mediocre 1st 15, playing a colts game for Tech while on high school holidays and getting play of the day over future World Cup Try scorer Karne Hesketh, and making a Canadian Provincial Training squad a day after I landed off the basis that 'he's a kiwi so he must be alright'.
After high school just played a bit at uni and then here and there overseas while travelling. Had much more success as a physio than a player haha having worked with some cool teams in both rugby and other sports.
Rugby is a sport I watch now basketball and golf and the sports I play...or attempt to.

RE: NBA season 2019/20
The Nuggets to go all the way, even though their owner is a piston wristed gibbon.
i can't see them beating the Lakers. But shit this has been an awesome run. Coming back from 3-1 down on more than one occasion is amazing
Imagine the odds you would have got on a Heat v Nuggets NBA Championship series back in January
You mean something similar to this?
I should add - this is not my bet, it's a mate of a mate
Check out sportsbets Instagram post. One of my best mates got inspired by my near 11.5k multi from a bonus bet I put on that missed because lebron didn't pass the last 2.30. (Im not over it).
My mate put an NFL multi on we rode it all the way home. $25 bonus bet into 37.5k
RE: AB "What could have been" XV
Maybe not someone who 'could have been special' but don't know what he must have done to never get a look in. Ash Dixon. Magpie/Highlanders/NZM captain. Can throw and is consistent around the field. Surprises me particularly one year he didn't get a shot when Coles and someone else were both injured.
RE: Southland v Hawkes Bay
Went around to a mate from Southlands place for a catch up and to watch the game. Shit idea.
Came home to the misses who is from Southland. Shit idea.
WANTED: New Friend and Misses.
Was a crap game from the magpies. Hard when its perfect weather in HB all year around to then adjust to sideways wind and rain...
RE: NBA season 2019/20
Ahhh had two bonus bets that I did same game multi for. First was $20 into $550 came in easy.
Next was $50 into 11.5k. AD needed one more point. I'm nearly in tears.
