What a great experience watching the Auckland Nines.Great footy and a crowd that was really with it Really enjoyed it!Actually the game wasn't a sellout like I said.Around 44,000 attended the game each day, bad weather must have detered the roll up crowd both days.There was at total of thirty one games with the final being a really cracker. Got a couple of positive comments on the Dogs jersey and if I say so myself I think it stands out well against all the Aussie and Warriors jerseys.
You guys in the UK seem to be obsessed with the likes of homophobia and political correctness.Make no wonder the place is going down the gurglar and fast.Just hope it's still around when I visit next year.As for Hardaker he is far to slow for Internationals.
Buford,whether Kear has lost the dressing room or not,is debatable.Personally I think he is to shrewd for that.
We had a good run with Kear last season.Although we lost a lot of players from last season we started this campaign in great style.Although it's disappointing to lose games against the likes the Whitehaven, give the coach a fair go instead of bagging him and I bet things come right.
If anyone was going to write an article on the state of the game and what was required to try to fix it,then DSK has hit the nail on the head. Despite some of the comments in regard to his post,some of the clubs are sailing close to the wind and will find no financial backer riding to the rescue.So what's the choice? Answer.There isn't one, only amalgamation.
