Re: Boat Ownership in NZ (and the Rugby World Cup !)

Piri Weepu the NZ half back missed 3 penalty kicks tha would have added another 9 points for the AB's.

Quade Cooper was born in NZ in 1988 and went to live in Aus in 2001.

Yep - I followed that the Kiwis won the Rugger game, I was alluding to the fact that they got smashed in the League Test.

League in NZ is an also ran sport, not many young players, the Rugby guys go over to League for the dollars but rugby union in NZ is a religion. So now we play France in the final of the RWC next Saturday. France has been a nemisis for the AB's but they seem to have overcome their hang-up and it should go the AB's way Saturday. I think France is still overcoming the stigma of going down to Tonga 19 - 14 in the elimination round.

The best league I find are the NSW games, they are more than passionate about the sport there. However here in Mexico it is almost impossible to get and rugby be it union or league.

Re: Boat Ownership in NZ (and the Rugby World Cup !)

Union is the thinking mans game. League is the meat-heads game.

Converted to CF lingo.

Sailing is the thinking mans game. Power boats (scarabs, cig-boats etc) is the meat-heads game.

Re: Boat Ownership in NZ (and the Rugby World Cup !)

Played the both games have you?

I have played both - at a reasonable level (wing/centre), there is stuff all thinking for a winger in Union, Forwards barge, Halves play for a penalty wingers stand out getting a a cold. As a player I certainly enjoy both, its the whole team sport thing, but league was more satisfying - and as a spectator, if its not running rugby it gets boring very quick. The whole, play for a penalty thing in rugger is not what I like, e.g watching the welsh go through about 30 phases of play against the Froggies, hoping the the froggies would impinge and give a penalty, instead of having a bloody go themselves and trying to score the points. That sort of negativity made me happy to see the French win.

But this discussion is a bit like the mono/multi dichotomy, where one has to be better than the other in most peoples mind, I simply noted that the Kiwis may have beaten Australia in the rugger, but they got their posteriors comprehensively handed to them in the League test. Either game is good, I certainly dont subscribe to the meatheads/thinking man bullshit, they both need physical skill, aggression, courage and tactical nous.

Re: Boat Ownership in NZ (and the Rugby World Cup !)

The type of rugby played at world cup time is always different to what you normally see, The AB's versus Aussie was the one of the better games though. Both codes have their moments of brilliance, and not, SBW got sinbinned for doing a league type shoulder charge in the dying minutes of the game, should have known better, it can be a problem when you get a cross over. Warriors guy trying to hit Lockyers jaw with his elbow was over the top as well. Just so long as the best team on the night wins, you can have your xxxx, I'll have my Lion Red.
