All Blacks vs Springboks – party central

  • July 11th, 2010

Fantastic Rugby for New Zealanders.

If I were the South African coach I'd be in two minds over whether to expose my team this week to the usual post game video review. How do you inspire your guys to counter general excellence and mistake avoidance, from an entire team?

And if I were Bill English I'd cancel the folly of Auckland's 'party central', and save us all one day's borrowing from foreigners. How will Auckland fill a ghastly old shed on a distant waterfront when they can't muster more than 25,000 spectators for a game like that?

Excellent game indeed.  It's now a matter of following up with a similar strong performance this Saturday at Westpac Stadium. 
Good to see the Boks outplayed in the physical aspects of the game.  Go the All Blacks.

Stephen – Did you notice the empty stands? Did you notice that they didn't actually have seats in them yet?
Eden Park is being rebuilt and therefore has a reduced capacity. I cannot remember when Eden Park last failed to get a full house to an All Black game.

I know they need something in Auckland – and I feel the whole shed of the wharf debate and action has been politically motivated.
Why not follow the example set during the Lions Tour of NZ and do what we did in Wellington – cheap – effective and remembered.

On the waterfront-take a dive!
