    Yeah, it was tight, but good to see Auckland always pulling away at the end.

    haven't seen the game yet, what went wrong with the mooloo powerhouse?

    tell the truth, don't give this "there's nothing on the other side of the bombays" business :p

    inexperienced backline, dropping the ball and not protecting the rucks, auckland got a turn over almost at every ruck. keep in mind that they were leading at the 60 minute mark so dont write them off for the season just yet. hopefully they can put in some good work in the next 2 weeks and take the shield off harbour :)

    hes back from his neck injury, he pulled a calf or something just b4 kick off so they had to move sweeny to fullback whoever was playing 2nd five to centre (cant b bothered looking his name up) and willison from bench to 2nd 5. so that prob didnt help things too much either

    A few things went wrong:
    1) Auckland (I hate to admit it) played well
    2) Waikato had a rather inexperienced backline at this level (they dropped off after 60)
    3) Marty Holah went off with illness, after that we were screwed.
    4) Auckland closed lineouts up thus gaining an extra try/two
