Can't get enough of the black milk! :)

Have we played yet? So far I've heard South Africa was beaten by Japan - which is akin to a change in the Earth's axis!

(I'm not a TV watcher these days, I getting my news from Radio NZ or the Net, and not an ardent rugby fan.)

You may find this movie interesting, if you've not seen it...


(It's free to watch there.)

It's about the controversial 1981 rugby tour of NZ by South Africa in the days of apartheid. It's seen from the protesters' point of view, they trying to stop the tour, so it's a partisan view, but gives you an idea of what New Zealanders can be like when they get riled up about something!
