Today I finally walked onto the field of Eden Park. Our open girls were in the final of Williments Rugby (Auckland interschool rugby comp for intermediates). We got wasted by 50 odd points though..... The field didn't feel like 100 by 70 metres. It felt more like 130 by 90 metres!!!!! I can't believe people burn up the grass when they run up and down there. The turf looked gorgeous. I almost took off my shoes so I could feel the grass between my toes. I could have lain there, rolled around, had a picnic, and made love on that field.
