sorry, Victorian Football League, its the state wide Aussie Rules comp, really got into it since being over here, $10 to go stand in the sun with a beer and some hot chips and watch some pretty good sport a few hundred meters from home...yes please



work, just so many more options over here and Melbounre is the sports capital of the world!
Did you have to get a work visa, or does that not apply to citizens of countries that are part of the Commonwealth? Just curious.

So cool! I'd planned to take my son to the inaugural Free Jacks match, but everything shut down literally the day before... *sigh*


Love it! I've fantasized about making a similar road trip of NFL games, but alas, it hasn't come to be.


Is there something special about the Aotearoa that has made you decide to check them out? Or are you just jonesin' for as much rugby as possible? How are ticket prices? Do you wear those hilarious KFC bucket helmets?
Haha, I went to high-school for 5 years in manawatu - the home of the bucket hat- and then lived another 9 years there but no, no bucket hats for me.

Im enjoying how people are getting into the rugby, internationals are unlikely to occur so this is the best rugby is going to get this year, and I want a holiday and can't go overseas with covid. Oh, and @Jabby reminded me how great dunedin is, ;)not sure I'll go to the sleights brewery but I will get tickets in the speights stand

Hurricanes vs Crusaders Highlights. I hope I'm wrong, but I have a feeling the Crusaders will go undefeated. :eek: Anybody else feel that way?

The Highlanders road jerseys looks great, but Scott Gregory is doing his best to help the Blues win. Not just Gregory (although his errors have hurt the most), but many of Highlanders have played poorly so far. :mad: The Blues lead 22-10 at half time.

They just took Gregory out, he screwed up three times tonight already. :eek: Every player has a bad game and this one's his. That latest error lead to another Blues try and they now lead 27-24.

Frustrating loss for us Highlanders fans, the Blues win it 27-24. That's their seventh win in a row and they're 3-0 on the Aotearoa season.

F’ing robbed, half the blues holding that ball at the s came around the side, gutted, ruined an otherwise great game
