RWC 2015

So The All Blacks first half was a bit of a shambles, but they bought it home at the end and beat Argentina in their opener 26-16. Richie got sin binned (3rd in his entire career thank you) and Sonny Bill needs to stop passing balls like he's Allah.
These from Fiorenza this morning. Love it.
Just a bit envious, bet you didn't have Macaroons and Georgie Pie like I did though!

The next six weeks are going to be full of no sleep and early hours of the morning rugby.
It will be the greatest six weeks in this whole year.

How about Japan though?
South Africas world rank by IRB standards is 3rd. Japan's in 13th and thanks to Napier born Karne Hesketh who made the winning try, a rugby miracle happened and the underdogs beat the expected winners. It's right up there with parting the red sea.

Hats off to Japan man. We were all smiles over here. Sonny Bill helped change the game in my opinion. I think all blacks are damn lucky. I was so nervous I could barely watch parts of the game. I paced around the house pretending I was tidying.

SBW: Yes he did, but those one handed ball passes are too fancy!

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!
