Haha - who was refereeing out of interest?
Thought the New Zealand vs Scotland game yesterday morning was a better spectacle than Hong Kong and entertaining but the All Blacks will be slightly wary of their infringing (though partly due to Barnes' obsession with blowing his whistle in the first half) and inaccuracy at times. Defence was very good though and they took almost all opportunties on attack, which were surprisingly few, so I'm sure they'll be pleased with those aspects of the match. BTW does anyone know what they were trying to achieve prematch by turning the lights off? Whose bright idea was that? Get it...bright idea...haha maybe not.
And Mathewson called in for Ellis apparently.
