    The Air New Zealand Cup is now the ITM cup. The trophy is... wait for it... a hammer (go to the link to see it) This deal is set to run to the end of 2012.

    So now we have to call the ANZ Cup to the ITM Cup. Just so you know, ill probably still call it the ANZ cup as it has a better ring to it and I am not good with change (i still call Lancaster Park Lancaster Park, but another reason for that is they have changed the name again and i cant remember what it was, could be AMI after Jade, but there was talk again, anyway i digress)

    The ITM Cup gets underway 29th July (though in the article it says August, i think they ahve that wrong, unless i am wrong, which is like, never)

    That is by far the lamest trophy ever. There's advertisment and then there's lame. They all ready have the competition named after them, do they really need the prize to be a tacky hammer?

    On that basis the winners of the Premiership over here will win an insurance policy.
