England's near best still couldn't beat a very poor ABs outfit Ha!
Next weeks test will be a different beast for sure ABs by 20+.

Both very hard men to replace!
Your a hard man to impress sir...
Maybe a trip to Auckland to watch the 1st XV's from the big rugby schools
there would satisfy your hunger for the perfect game.
If your lucky enough you would get to witness the ferocious school Hakas while enjoying a mouth watering hangi.
And don't forget to...

I had two nephews in that Kelston team that year, one has moved onto higher honours along with a good bunch of his team mates while the other is still a student at the...
