In keeping with my team’s slogan “Make your presence felt” I’ve modifed the colour scheme. If it’s not all in glorious black and gold try refreshing your browser. (Cantabrians feel free to leave now.)
Tomorrow (Sat, 7:30pm) the Wellington Lions take on Canterbury in the final of the rugby national provincial championship (NPC) at the Cake Tin in Wellington. Should be a cracker of a game – the flair and unpredicatability of Wellington against the clinical finals football of the Cantabs. Arguable the two best teams in the competition with some great match-ups between the sides. I’m particularly interested in seeing the Wellington mid-fielders and halfback up against their opposite numbers. (I’d also like to see Andrew Mehrtens have a good game – There! Not so one-eyed as others)
It’ll be a game of two halves, and rugby should be the winner on the day.
Awaiting kick-off. Go Lions!
