Match of Round 8.
Canes (ranked equal first – due to the Crusaders having a game up their sleeve) take on the Crusaders (currently 3rd on the ladder) in Wellington.
Should be a game well worth watching.

Me think's this won't be a one sided game... not at all
Me thinks you think correctly.....

In fact......anything could happen here for this game......

I just want the Canes to lose cos lots of people support them simply because they are brown.........and give the Crusaders crap cos they represent white NZ......but the Crusaders are the team that put RESPECT into NZ provincial rugby....irrespective if they look like farm boys with no sense of style.

Very impressed with that GG, lot of Kiwi's miss the point on just how good the white boys are... yin and yang brother, yin and yang.
Normally the rights to the BIG games in NZ come down to the Auckland and Canterbury, full honours to the Canes for taking that mantle away from the Blues... the southern farm boys though... they have always been there (and full credit to them).

Also got to remember the crusaders are coming off a bye, so it will be a tough game for them. IMO not many teams come off a bye and do well, the crusaders did it last year though, cant remember who they played, but it will be a great game nonetheless, just wish it wasnt bloody sold out :(

Hmm im picking the Canes for this one...both teams are awesome but yeh i just have a feeling the Canes shall win B)

Wonder if Piri will be playing.....to be honest, i dont think he will....i wouldnt risk it.

Im glad Tana is back training...he is muchly cool. I wouldnt put him in the team for another couple of games, just to make sure he is 100% :)

GO THE CANES :bleh!:
