    Harbour with their noses in front at HT but Cantabs are 3:1 try-wise & about to have the wind advantage.

    Enjoyed the game as usual, and real pleased to see ABs playing Mitre 10 cup, but I actually quite happy when they go into camp, I remembered one thing last night, one of the great things with mitre 10 cup is I love watching the young new players coming through. Out of interest I thought Cullen looked pretty good coming back in!

    It seems I missed a helluva a game up the road at FMG. Stoopid Satdy trading...



    Edit: there's no way you should pick up a bonus point when you've been flogged by 25.

    Though this game was on later. Gotta say that's an impressive echo in the lunchbox.

    ^ Hors d'oeuvre, mate, main course to be served at 19:05 - very tasty, something wrapped in bacon-like hors d'oeuvre, but :)

    Second half rather less tasty than the first, like someone swapped the smoked salmon* out for anchovies.

    * Edit: Manuka-smoked Marlborough Sounds salmon, of course :)

    If Nanai-Seturo catches that it's try time, not even Reece is gunna catch him & he'll turn any cover inside out with his mad footwork.

    Edit: don't you Russian spambots have a US election to interfere with? Fuck off, y'all, says my avatar.

    That probably brushed Nankivil's left hand on the rebound even though he didn't play at it so it's a knock-on & no try I'd have thought.

    Steelers deserved that. Won't mean much in the long run but at least it won't be a down-trou.

    Edit: not for the first time, I may have posted too soon... Mako looking a little sand shark-like of late.

    Even if Hunt gets this the decision makes no sense. Yep, off the post: shoulda backed their lineout drive.

    Given his previous form inc a three-week suspension during pre-Covid SR I'd expect Sio Tomkinson to get a few weeks off for this unnecessary high shot on Simon Hickey.

    Not convinced that was PT-worthy, looked like he started from behind the goal line so offside Law doesn't apply? Bay hard done by IMO.

    Sam Nock is now full-on blonde & NM-S has been carded for a deliberate knock-down that looked suspiciously like it came off a hand already in contact with Goodhue i.e. while attempting a tackle. Manawatu 10 adrift & a man down from nail the 78th minute, gunna do it tough from here.
