    @shark did you not say it was Rameka Poihipi and Isaiah Punivai? Embarrassing.

    wow, those guys in their 3rd grade club sides wear the same jerseys as the crusaders! Smart marketing

    Wrong Punivai thats is a pic of Ngane not Isia.

    Isia played against The Naki not Ngane.

    Yep. You'd have thought the lack of corn rows would have tipped Bones off, but he was so busy beating himself off over finding pics of Poihipi and a Punivai in Crusaders strips that he couldn't let the facts get in the way of his great story.

    @Kiwiwomble Uhm, which team & stadium?

    sorry, we discussed it just a bit further back, Wimbledon, we'll be moving back to a new stadium on Plough Lane pretty much 30 years after having to leave when we were told there was nowhere to build a new stadium

    It's still a thing. I remember listening to Radio sport a few years back the morning after an AB loss. Some old bloke whinged that Richie McCaw had let him down personally and that he made much better decisions when he captained the ( insert generic bumfuck New Zealand town ) under 21s back in 1959.

    Apparently that's the same amount of pressure as a test match in South Africa in front of 60,000 Afrikaaners. .

    We called them pubs at the time. Everybody was still on the booze but it was all in one room and ended in punching. Was Deans versing Hewson after that?

    I remember Halligan though, deserved a go.
