In case you didn't know, and it's a hate crime if you really didn't know, the Steinlager Series is coming up (All Blacks vs France). First game is next weekend and I was very close to getting a ticket and driving to Auckland for the game, but it always feels like I'm leaving something behind when I go as far as Napier .. and it leaves me with anxiety issues that not even the All Blacks could break .. so very close though!
I need friends who appreciate rugby as much as I do.
Friends who lose their breath at the sight of those perfectly constructed 15m H-goals.
Friends who get emotional at a dead ball.
Friends whose heartbeats are unsteady during the haka.
Friends who are on the edge of their chairs during a match.
Friends who scream at an unnoticed forward pass.
Friends who, after a brutally close game, feel relieved not triumphed.
Friends who know what an openside flanker is and agree who the best one in the world is (Clue: Starts with R - ends with ichie McCaw).
Friends who are girls ...

I won't be taking applications because there is no one here that fits. Aunty Marva died and Pony is in Australia.
First game in the Madison Trophy round on Saturday.
