You thought you'd been spared a rugby post didn't you.
No chance.
How many men in a rugby team? 15.
Remove 2 to the sin bin and how many do you have? 13.
All Blacks beat South Africa with a 13 man team. Let's face it, that's like taking on Mayweather blind folded with your arms tied behind your back. Not really.

Bismarck du Plessis got yellow carded for the Dan Carter hit subjecting him to 10 minutes in the sin bin. Then he hit Messam, on purpose, and got the red card (off for the rest of the game). Reckless and awesome.
Sam Cane was a machine. Gash to the head didn't stop him.

But it was fellow Hawkes Bayer Retallick who won me over.

That Kieren Reid .. he does a better haka than some Maoris I know.
I've been wishing for someone to shut commentator, and has-been All Black, Justin Marshall up since 2011s RWC. If you're on Facebook, trust me and like the page. 20,000 Likes is supposed to do it.

He, alone, commentating is worse than 4 Australian commentators combined.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
