Rugby Saturday

I typically take near 200 photos at a rugby game.
Today I took 22 .. and 4 of them were of the kids playing around behind us.
I have no faith in this years team (yet). Again, one coach circled the field and said jack-all, and the other is - so say the backs - trying to teach the team old tricks. We conform when new techniques are hatched, it hasn't been 1995 for nearly 20 years. These guys aren't talking to eachother, at all.
Come on.

This guys Dad is coach.
Neither he or his brothers go to training (so far).
If you don't go to training, you don't get a game.
That's the rule anyway.

Brother on the wing - not his normal position or code.
He's a center .. in league.

Carlos & Darrell.

They beat Marist 15 - 10. That's not a good score because Marist had a cabbage team. With that kind of margin, there were no winners.

I'm sorry, but last years coach needs to come back and show these fools how it's done. First game of the season next Friday against CHB.
... I'm still shaking my head.

Super Rugby:
Crusaders vs the new team tonight, Kings who hail from Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Crusaders got this.

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!
