It’s all gone red and black

Canterbury cruise to a fine double after beating Wellington 40-27 at the Cake Tin tonight.

Needless to say I’m not as happy as I might be. But Wellington didn’t play as well as Canterbury, especially in the forwards and set pieces, and the Cantabs deserved their win. Andrew Mehrten’s did have a great game (including a nice tackle on Tana) which was good to see even though we paid for it.

So in honour of the red-and-blacks victory I’ve moved to a Canterbury colour scheme for the next day. (Again refresh the browser if you’re getting the gold-and-black one).

I remain a passionate Wellington supporter and would like to thank the boys for an excellent NPC season.

I look forward to seeing the All Black squad named in the near future. Maybe So’oalo and Nonu will make it back in?

    you know how to lose well, my friend.

  4. Maybe I can write a book – instead of “The Art of War” maybe “The art of losing gracefully”. I’m sure it’d be a best seller in our hyper-competitive society 🙂

  5. And while I’m at it – Wellington and the Hurricanes need another No. 10 – Canterbury have 4 or 5 (more even if Leon MacDonald counts). Maybe Andrew Mehrtens could come and play for us seeing as he won’t be getting much game time in the Crusaders.
