Not really much of a Hawkes Bay fan, but I have never seen a crowd that good. Right from the let go they smelt blood, and towards the end whenever Hawkes Bay stopped Wellington to retain the lead the place just erupted, it was like a jumbo jet. Don't know what it must 've been on TV, but it was bloody loud.
And Neemia Tialata will now have learnt not to try the dirty stuff in the line outs - was knocked out cold by one punch by the HB Prop.
Yeah I agree wellington has a habit of doing stupid **** like that. Even though im a supporter im glad Hawkes Bay won, we would of robbed them if we got a drop goal. Wellington needs to be more consistant we are our worst enemy.
Gotta make the comment on Hawkes Bay claiming another big scalp!!
With the weekends win over Waikato all but securing a top4 finish (and a home quarter final) for the Magpies, I wonder if the doubters of the ANZ Cup can finally agree that the NZRU got it right by going for 14 teams.
