I'm so grateful I've got the All Blacks, because otherwise I support Wellington in anything.

Ian knows what I mean.

Ha yep. I think Wellington and Auckland are in a perpetual heartbreak contest.

Pull the other one! My entire childhood was Auckland thwarting Wellington's rugby hopes and dreams. The Ranfurly Shield still stings.

True enough.

Now we're a joke. I was there the day we were unbackable favourites and the Shield went to the Bay of Plenty.

Should have stayed in Pukekohe and been a Counties fan. I can still claim it given I'm in their territory.

Oh and don't we in Wellington love Auckland being a joke. But there's always this feeling in the back of our minds that "they'll rise again soon and fuck us over somehow, probably Otago-style in a Super Rugby final". At least that loss to Otago didn't hurt as much because they were the other straggler for so long and we could bond with them about it. But if Auckland beats us? There's an open wound for the next few decades.

At least we have the NPC.

or rather at least we lost the first division final and not the second.

Black Caps definitely not having the flashest day so far today.

But there is somebody in the crowd with a great sign: DAVID WARNER LIKES NICKELBACK.

Well that started bad and got worse. Fair play to Australia, better team in this one.

On to the next one.

Australia have a much better middle order but New Zealand the superior bowling attack. The final ODI should be a cracker.

Strangely, in Tests the NZ middle order comes good but the openers fall apart. Come on guys, could we at least have consistency in what we need to work on?

Ah, consistency, the elusive hope of every Kiwi cricket fan. All the more reason Kane is already in the New Zealand sporting pantheon.

Didn't see the game but it was weird that we won it with Mitch Marsh and John Hastings. Can't imagine NZ being able to win a game six down.

Milne's catch though, phwoarrr!

We literally did exactly that a couple of weeks ago.
