    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Sadly, I won't be in NZ for most of the All Blacks' games. Will watch the NZ v Tonga game for sure - just working out plans for the others...

    Will be at NZ-Tonga.

    North Otago, where I worked until recently, have a lot of Tongans in their side. Kilifi Fangupo is quality first five who should be in the Tonga team but they are a bit of a mickey mouse outfit and ignore players like him.

    Pretty easy group for NZ and France. I can't see there being any upsets here.

    Was Big T there when you were? How about Barry Matthews? - I had a 100+ run partnership with him for Valley last summer.

    Big T? Not sure. Unless you mean your former colleague Dan, who I see is leaving. And no, he was on work experience for a couple of weeks when I was there, but that's it.

    Barry was involved with the Valley rugby club when i was there, but largely on the periphery.

    I think Kilifi injured himself a couple of weeks ago too - not sure how badly though.

    Meant Tevita Fifita, the number 8. Probs only work who called him "Big T" actually, never heard anyone else call him that.

    Kilifi had some injury problems during the club season too.

    "Big T" was still overseas playing when I was in Oamaru, I think - they had Joe Mamea at number 8 during my two years there.

    Is Piri Weepu the best Hakaist ever? Bloke looks so intense - genuinely intimidating imo

    Great showing from Sona Taumololo. Was a real standout for the 20 minutes he was on.

    Kaino very strong for the All Blacks. Kahui and Sonny Bill looked good. Thorn, Cowan and Ali Williams were below par, I thought.

    Really clinical first half, and then Tonga just held the ball for the Second (mostly).

    Think Tonga faired alot better than most people would have thought - myself included. The Tab here was giving them a 60 point start!

    Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.
