Magpies v Wellington



  • A certain three points from a blatant cynical Wellington offside



  • Score?



  • Fuck sake Ben May. Fucking draw. Better than the L



  • 27 - 27



  • FFS, we have a backline and had numbers, WTF didn't we use them?



  • Full time: 27 all!



  • How the f did we botch that.



  • Booooo pussy decision

    Also the halfback and 10 blew that, probably 3 rucks in a row they spin it they win



  • It feels a little bit like a win. Three points, while we were 19 - 27 down only five minutes before full time.



  • HB should've won at the death, but they blew it. They had numbers out wide multiple times under penalty advantage, but kept it tight instead. Still a good effort to come away with a draw though.



  • @Stargazer lol Canterbury could now be last after round 2 if they lose tomorrow.



  • @Canes4life Don't care. I'm mainly looking at the Championship division.



  • The same can be said for my team. Looked for all money a runaway try to the Bay right on full time.



  • Folau Fakatava is only 19 years old. Lincoln McClutchie only just 20. Just saying.

    That's what is so annoying. A blatant Wellington coming in from in front of the hindmost foot to prevent to ball coming back forcing the referee to blow for a penalty stopped the chance for a another running of the ball leaving pretty much only the kick for goal option available to the HB team



  • Is it possible to be so pissed off at one player...?
    Fakatava has a got a lot learn about playing rugby at a higher level..?..
    As for Ben May, to me that’s a total mental switch off...!..Time to move on even when he did come on the scrum did not have the same dominance...

    For all that it was a superb game..best of the Mitre 10 Cup thus far..!

    Are you allowed to move forward in that situation provided you do not get within the ten metres you must be back from the mark or must you remain stationary at all times?



  • May has always done some dumb things. I know I used to be frustrated when he played for Waikato/Chiefs.

    Once Kirifi left the field Wellington lost all their dominance at the breakdown.

    An entertaining match to watch.



  • @Higgins I’m not to sure, but whatever reason it was a total mental switch off from Ben May..the crazy thing about it though I don’t think it was anything like the Magpies best performance but they still found away to claw their way back

    I don't know what to feel after having worn my HB jersey all day today whilst helping a mate who has just opened a new cafe in Wellington and making sure all his customers knew where I stood. At least I can use they "well you guys were not good enough to beat us" defence tomorrow!!!! So close yet so far to being able to cock a snook at them though. That dropped ball over the try line followed by the 95 metre try from the resultant scrum made such a massive difference. So too in reality did the rushed missed conversion from the last HB try. God I was close to being insufferable tomorrow (not to mention the next 365 days)! Fcuk I love my team no matter what, even though a lot of the results can leave you frustrated and tearing what is left of your hair out.
