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’ll have to avoid Martin S. after a Cantab win!

    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.
