    David, you shouldn’t listen to all the doomsday profits when you make your predictions. Can’t help but laugh at a well-known host of certain other SA rugby blogsite who was very negative about this game and kiwi rugby in general in his prognosis for the weekend. He is not the kind of guy to eat humble pie but the Chiefs and Highlanders aided by the sublime reffing of Gary Lawrence put on an edge of the seat game of hard rugby. I had appeared home unexpectedly from the farm at the start of the match and my missus was pissed off that she could not watch her movie but by the 2nd half she was yelling for the Highlanders as loud as I was. Great game, full of Southland type hard forward play.

    I can only assume that those like the blogsite host referred to above have never played rugby , certainly not in the in the forwards and do not appreciate the strength and commitment needed to grunt out a win like the Highlanders did last night in Dunedin. Great stuff!
