well - wot a night. We went to watch the rugby fully expecting to see the Crusaders show us how smooth and well oiled they are and hoping that the Force would maybe score a try - say the first one and then that would be it. But - no - they played like champions right to the end. A 23-23 draw but 2 disallowed tries at the end which would have upturned the super 14 scene - especially as the Crusaders haven't lost a match this season. This is Cameron Sheppard - man of the match - but actually they were all the men of the match. Great crowd support and a great way to finish in Perth. They will be off to South Africa with their tails in the air.
This afternoon of course my beloved Hurricanes are playing the Brumbies and it should be a good game - sorry Helen! In between I shall get to work. Have just noticed that the door handles on the studio are different colours........
Just to add my rugby report - the Brumbies won - they played well and the 'Canes didn't show their magic. Have to wait until next week's game but they are still in third spot on the ladder! It was a good game though. A weekend of interesting results.
