  • kmont,

    and a thrid person who just drinks and points to the meat every now and again.

    That is clearly a job for me.
    And you are right Hayden in keeping with the spirit of the occasion, laydeez on the grill, men on the salads and drinks.

    Daleaway, we may need you on the field you do own rugby programmes after all.

  • InternationalObserver,

    Anyway I/O what are you going to contribute? Got any pom poms...

    As may already be apparent, I have very little to contribute that might be of any use (just ask my wife!). Considering everytime I see the words 'pom poms' I read it as 'porn poms' I think the best contribution I can make is to stand in the corner and await my just desserts

  • merc,

    Physio surely? Now, who gets to design the jerseys? And people, you will need sponsors.
    Tongs, the NZ tongs were the first and are the best in the world, my French sister in law told me. Apparently in France, kitchenware is made by prisoners, true.
    Also this could be the XV's first game if I may be so bold, a prison game, then against those parliament cry babies, but hey, I'm not CEO, or manager or anything, I'd quite like to be an usherette...

  • B Jones,

    unless you can work it into a Liz Phair song we don't want any of that...

    I realise eyeliner is out, but is it ok if my eyelashes sparkle like gilded grass*?




    *Apologies if I got that wrong, googling Liz Phair lyrics at work is apparently not a good idea.

  • Joanna,

    Would Coach still be vacant?

    Coach? COACH? We don't need no stinking patriarchacal system to bring us down. We'll play by committee, of course.

  • Danielle,

    Eeep! Who has the sweet and slippery lips of a cherub's bare wet ass, then?

    (I think we should all find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale, too.)

    Daleaway, I feel your pain. I tried in vain to get away from my mechanic yesterday. All I wanted to do was pay for my warrant and oil change, but no. I had to have a 30 minute monologue about the failings of the NZRFU....

  • Rob Hosking,

    Perhaps its the people I hang out with, but I have far more difficulty imagining women doing a barbie than I do imagining them playing rugby.

    I guess its because I've actually seen the rugby thing - worked as a groundsman at Uni Park in Auckland for a while - but not the barbie thing.

    And on the Liz Phair lyrics - thought the line was about "your eyelashes sparkle like you did grass". (It's the only Liz Phair song I know, btw).

    You obviously haven't seen the indomitable Janice and Sue from Caffe Astoria in action then. If they've prepared the menu, no one is entrusted to work the chargrill but them.

    They'd fail dismally at the beer drinking bit though. Would have to be wine or a cocktail.

  • Russell Brown,

    If that wasnt half obvious from the post (especially the itemised hot links) then thats because it was read from a perspective we in drug policy sometimes overlook... not everyone figures this stuff out for themselves, it has to be spelt out for them. Its like dragging someone over 'hot coals', they resist and resist until then suddenly on reaching the otherside and learn 'it didnt hurt at all'.

    Thanks for getting back Blair, althogh I confess I still dn't understand what you're saying.

    Also -- free wi-fi at Welington Airport! How civilised.

    And .. awesome thread! I was biggin' y'all up when I spoke at the Access and Community Broadcasters conference today.

    Bonus: got to meet Anjum, who's on the board of the Hamilton access station.

  • daleaway,

    Joanna, I apologise most humbly for seeking a leadership role. That was thoughtless of me. It must have been all that stray testosterone that sneaked under the ward partition last night and got into my drinking water.

    So let me humbly volunteer to help in some menial role on the coaching committee, taking minutes perhaps. Or making the balsamic reduction for Haydn's asparagus salad, if he can bear a woman in his kitchen.

    Oh dear. Just catching up with my email and here's this piece of vileness from popbitch:

    Rugby World Cup humour:
    Q: Did you hear about the new All Blacks bra?
    A: it's got great support but no cups.

  • Jeremy Andrew,

    I heard Ritchie McCaw found a cellphone outside the stadium after that fateful match. He immediately and gallantly returned it to Wayne Barnes who asked how Ritchie knew it was his. Ritchie replied by pointing at the screen, it said "15 missed calls".

    "I apologise most humbly for seeking a leadership role. That was thoughtless of me. It must have been all that stray testosterone that sneaked under the ward partition last night and got into my drinking water."

    So leadership is a male domain?
    Helen Clark is a man?

    Just giggles - someone always gets power drunk on committees anyway.

  • Margaret B,

    Ah, sadly I fear that I have come to this thread too late to put in any kind of creditable bid for second five. Alas.

    I'm happy to sit on the reserves bench and run up and down the sidelines in my tracksuit every so often, throwing the opposition into a substitution speculation lather, though.

    I'll admit I know a bit about the game, and I used to love it with the same passion as my dear ol' Dad. But years of seeing All Blacks treated like demigods, particularly in relation to their misdemeanours (someone already mentioned wife-beating I believe?) has seen me disengage from the Cult of Rugby, whilst still retaining an interest in watching actual games.

    And can I humbly suggest that the PA System Women's First XV look at breaking away from black for the jerseys? Black is so last season.

  • Deborah,

    There's always that yummy beige that the cricketers used to wear...

    Purple could be good. In crepe de chine?

    And .. awesome thread! I was biggin' y'all up when I spoke at the Access and Community Broadcasters conference today.

    can confirm, and it was great to meet you too russell. also got to meet jane clifton in the afternoon, so a pretty good day all round...

    re our first game: i suggest we have a rule that no-one on the opposing team can be more than 7 years old. stacking the odds in our favour? of course! we're playing to win, aren't we? aren't we???

    I think we should make drop goals 25 points and just shoot it out...oh that's the WWC already.

    WWC, what the heckler...RWC, the game of The Boredom Lords, England.

    I am afraid I have to veto beige, or footless tights for that matter!

  • merc,

    OK, the trend in hot countries during seasonal cross-over (heh) training, was to wear actual stockings under your shorts to avoid getting grazes from the hard ground.
    Yes, rugby players are fashion victim gear heads like everyone else. Now they wear lycra.
