    Crusaders v Chiefs SF 10/06/22

    Crusaders will be missing Blackadder, who's shoulder injury could be Year-ending, but should otherwise be at full strength. Co-incidentally I'll be in Christchurch Friday night so if I can't get tickets I'll at least be able to watch it & not be outnumbered by Tribe fans for a change.

    Crusaders v Reds 3/06/22 - QF1

    Kickoff at 7:05 local time. Reds chose to stay in Christchurch rather then returning to Brisbane then back again later in the week.

    CruSadists v Reds 27/05/22 at A.R.S.E.

    You'd have to think Brums will take max points from MP (Moana Pasifika) on Saturday & go to 49 points so CruSadists need at least a draw to confirm second place overall.

    Clan v Waratahs 22/05/22 at Forsyth Barr

    No Ethan de Groot but possible return for Shannon Frizell: https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/super-rugby/128671029/highlanders-lose-ethan-de-groot-to-all-blacks-rest-week-but-shannon-frizell-nears-return Mitch Hunt also unlikely to suit up so Sam Gilbert will probably get another run at 10.

    Rebels v Tribe 15/05/22 at AAMI

    Lurch is back training but probably won't play this one. Weber & Ioane, however, should be good to go. Assistant Coach David Hill did the post-training media session & said that numbers-wise it was their best training run of the season.

    Clan v Force 13/05/22 at Forsyth Barr

    Clan have named Sam Gilbert as their starting 10: he hasn't played there since he was at high school. Edit: "He's had a couple of club games there, and he also was a 10 at school," assistant coach Clarke Dermody said. "So, effectively has been out of position for a couple of years for us on...

    From October, "The new batter being on strike even if the players crossed while a catch is taken, a reframing of the law for running out non-strikers while backing up, and a permanent ban on using saliva to shine the ball are among the changes to MCC's Laws that will come into effect..."...

    Ajaz Patel has just joined Laker & Kumble in the 10-for club. Just this morning I was explaining to a guy who knows nothing about cricket that whereas Patel having taken all four wickets on Day 1 was obviously a good thing, the fact no-one else had taken any was a worry because, obviously, Patel...
