"The distraction is over, now for the Lions."


That distraction was of course, the Americas Cup, which we duly won, and now for the rest of the Lions tour

"Rugby, Great result, I actually backed the draw."


Hurricanes Lions 31 all draw, and what a game!.  I had $10 on the draw.  Was I clever?  I must admit I took it by accident, but I will take it!

"I am  waiting with baited breath for tonight and tomorrow."


Tonight is the Lions test.  Forget the score, look at the game.  Tomorrow is the Americas Cup, forget the racing, look for what Oracle migh have done, or might do.  Two games two versions  of what is sportsmanship.

"This weekend is for sport.  Stay away terrorists, catastrophies and politicians."


The AB's play Samoa, Maoris the Lions and Team NZ against Oracle.  What a weekend!

"Fake News : winds up to 120kph are here."


Half of the front page of the Dompost went on about it.  My guess is that two puffs of wind all day reached 20kph.  Good quality fiction reading being perported as news.

"Hurricanes : What is wrong with taking 3 point penalties?"


They are too good to take a humble penalty, and for the second time taking those penalities may have won them the game which they lost.  Get a captain on the field that has a brain please.

"If political Pollsters were paid on results they would be broke."


First we had US elections, then Brexit, now the UK election.  The pollsters are wasting our time and everyones money.  They have no idea of what is happening, I bet they will find "legit" excuses for this disastrous polling guess.

"The Blues were bloomin' awful, the woefuls were worser!"


First the Blues play like a bunch of prima donnas, and as a team are hopeless, yet the Warriors played as per normal, and were consequently terrible.  Seems the Auckland set get what the deserve.
