Holy hell, am sitting in a cafe in Havelock North, as I type this. In walks Mitchell Santner.
Just asked him how far away he is from playing and told me he is scheduled to play for ND in the Super Smash.
No, did not take a selfie with him or ask for his autograph.
If it was Kane Williamson you bet I would have.
Hastings RS demolished Havelock Nth 50-10, was 38-3 at halftime.
Danny Toala scored two tries for Hastings, playing at centre. Hastings RS fielded five Magpies - Toala, Neria Fomai, Mason Emerson, Jason Long and Jacob Devery.
NOB Marist held on to beat Tamatea 121-7.
@Number-10 @Magpie_in_aus Bloody hell, just when things were going along so swimmingly and then this hits us. In my case, and Magpie-in-Aus as well, it is a double whammy with him also turning out for our beloved Texans. Luckily I am not up home again until Aug 15 (v Havelock) all going well but by god this is going to be hard to accept an imposter from the 'Poo in my team! Bring back the Barracuda ASAP.
@Higgins - Tech are playing Clive on the 15th. Tech beat Havelock last Saturday.
Watched MAC v NOB Marist.
NOB Marist came from 17-34 down to win 43-34.
The NOB Marist try to draw level was the classic one of winger running down left touchline with one man coming across - they both dived at the same time - the NOB Marist wing for the corner and the MAC defender for the NOB Marist winger. Down went the corner flag, Referee consulted the AR, and the try was awarded.
The conversion attempt was literally inches off the left touchline, the kick hit the right hand upright, bounced down on to the top of the crossbar, and bounced over.
And that's how NOB Marist went from 29-34 down to 36-34 into the lead.
Lincoln McClutchie played fullback for MAC, and had an off day with the boot, kicking 2/7.
Kianu Kereru-Symes came on for MAC in the last 30 minutes.
Hastings RS demolished unbeaten Taradale 35-10.
Central Hawkes Bay 22 - 00 Havelock North
Napier High School Old Boys-Marist 49 - 00 Pirates
Clive 14 - 09 MAC
Tamatea 05 - 64 Hastings RSC
Taradale 32 - 16 Napier Tech Old Boys
Presumably 9 penalties and a hotly disputed try!
Those turning up to witness the expected points fest that occurs whenever the Napier High School Old Boys-Marist Senior Three team play were let down a bit this week with just the 68 points scored, all coming on the Havelock North side of the scoreboard.
Upset of the day.
@Higgins - Tech led 16-15 at halftime, but were scoreless in the second half.
@Crucial Phil Judd is NZ's answer to Syd Barrett.
Brilliant talent but some serious problems...
Yep, always liked Counting The Beat.
