Plans for Saturday



  • No, i don't mean how Shag plans to deal with a rush defense and endless recycling, i mean important stuff.

    Where are you watching? What's the plan for a ripping saturday of rugby?

    It's a cracking day, with the Everest rolling in to the Caulfield Cup (or the other way around) then in to Aus v England and then us. That's me sorted from mid-afternoon, and the type of day i designed my patio around.

    In all honesty i am not even sure i will invite anyone around, i'll sit on the couch outside, in front of the TV, start cracking beers from about 1pm. Curse my inability to find a winner. Switch to the rugby after the big races. Steak on teh BBQ between games, feeling loose and slightly toasted by our game.

    Bliss.



  • Probably going to a mate's place to watch on the big screen. Dont know if I want to watch alone



  • Heading over to Manly for the two RWC games to watch with my mate - we were flatting together for the 2015 RWC in Manly so hopefully that success will continue. I assume he'll throw some meat on the BBQ. I don't drink when I watch big matches because I hate not being 100% for them.

    Will watch the Magpies game at home before heading over the bridge.



  • I got offered a ticket, but it’s going with a work friend who isn’t a kiwi, and might be supporting Ireland.

    There’s a strong chance I may punch them in the face if we lose.

    Should I go anyway?

    Any opportunity to punch an Irish supporter!

    absolutely! instant catharsis

    Means no matter what happens, you'll feel okay on Sunday

    Hell yeah you have to go, it's win-win, win and all's gravy and lose and you get to punch an Irish supporter in the face (and they wouldn't invite you if they weren't prepared for that outcome).



  • Haven't planned it out yet, but will hopefully go for a ride. Do some odd jobs around the house and then settle in.

    I haven't planned anything for Sunday just in case - no one would want to be around me then.



  • I am mindful of the last time Aus v England and then the AB game in the quarters were one after the other...

    At least this time i won't have to miss most of the first half of the first game because a bunch of fat yobs just have to watch Man U labour to a 1-0 over someone rubbish.

    Fuck those guys by the way, i hope they love where their club is at now. piston wristed gibbons.



  • I am playing golf at Kauri Cliffs and then out to dinner at a restaurant called "Charlottes Place" and then where ever we all land to watch the games

    Will also be in Manly, but at my mates little pub - 6pm with the whole fam for dinner to watch England v Aus, the oldest lad staying on for the big dance.

    I certainly do drink during games, but I'll watch the replay the next day sober to see what I missed, and where I made a fool of myself by ranting about something that didn't actually happen.

    This will be me for the semi's, though with the kid - I typically prefer to watch games at home, and don't mind at all being alone. Like the beers to be close, steak coked how I like it, and being able to watch a replay of something at HT if I want

    i love my kids, but they ask too many questions to be allowed to watch tense games with me. I am a terrible father...

    Make sure to post here. Everybody else does.

    Just jinx myself, this is the second time I have played it and the first time I got round with only losing 3.

    That makes you an excellent father.

    I had the whole family around for the final in 2011. My niece kept talking....she now rarely talks to me at all. I think it was "would you STFU" that did it. It was also not during the match but Richie receiving Bill.

    You're a good uncle. All you did is set her up to be a better wife in future.

    😂 😂

    the 2011 cricket world cup semi final was not my best moment.

    I have attempted to do away with the swearing and yelling. But my line now is "i watch a lot of meaningless games, you could easily watch and learn with me then. Now is not the fucking time"
