Man, was that a great game - both me and him indoors on the edge of our seats (couch, at home) despite neither of us being real fans. My Welsh heritage was very proud of those boyos, who played incredibly hard and nearly beat the world champs. Pleased that the whole experience was good - all reports in from friends are that the games have been great places to be so far - kids and all. Granddad is taking Mr 9 to North Harbour for Sth Africa vs Namibia next week. This RWC thing seems pretty good, so far. Auckland buzzing all weekend - flags flying, people everywhere. Love it.
Nice story, Haydn.
Aside, so you recommend the Tab? Been considering one....
How did you find the coverage ?
Great story about the jersey. I missed it the first time round.

It's pretty good. If you like Android (and some people don't) then it's a great tablet. I can give you more advice later after I've used it a bit.
+1 nzlemming, both this and the earlier piece are really great reads. Another of the innumerable examples of why PA is one of my favourite places to hang.
I was at the game - My Telecom phone worked fine throughout, not that I could hear the calls!
I thought it was a great game, somethings I noticed that I don't pick up at home
- at Welsh restarts the Bok Forwards were paired off with a Jumper and a Lifter and spread across the park - looked a good tactic
- The infamous penalty kick that missed, well there was a wind and the ball did curl and the linesman was straight under the post - his view would have been better than anyone elses, I think a TV replay would have been misleading
- The Box defence was brilliant, lots of time the last man made a crucial tackle.
I was supporting Wales and they played with passion - but - they seemed to want to do endless phases in the Bok half and look for penalties, not a lot of penetration. In the first 5 minutes the Boks attack was awesome, they never approached that level again.
