    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.

    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.
