And see the Reds beat the Force?
Is it my imagination, or do the Force always (by which i mean this year and last) wobble horrible towards the end of the season?

Probably not your imagination. They got six wins and a draw last year, of which five of those wins and the draw came in the first nine weeks. We're in week ten of this year, and in week ten last year, they got smashed 53-0 by Canterbury!

Speaking of the Force, one bizarre thing about them is that most games they've won in their brief history has been away from home. This year, of the five games they've won, four have been away games!

I think the Chiefs game involving them last year was funnier - what was it, 63-36 or somesuch?


And to think i had a mate who was planning, last year, to make the trip from Perth to Auckland for the S14 final

Warriors Premier League team, the level below the NRL.

I'll start regularly going to their home games when they're playing at their regular home ground.

Yeah, some scoreline like that. One hell of a high scoring encounter.



I love how far the Bulls have fallen this year ...

What do you think of the new one on the Gold Coast? Looking from where my mother lives, it looks like a fucking marshmallow or something.

Their involvement in the NSW Cup (aka Premier League) was organised really late, so i'm presuming that the regular ground, Mt Smart Stadium #2 was booked for athletics carnivals for the first few home games. So far they've played at Henham Park, Otahuhu (twice) and somewhere in Glen Eden/Glenora.

But once they're at Mt Smart #2 i'll be there often.
