@Tim I get the impression that Mahuta’s goal isn’t so much better governance, or even a better deal for Māori people, as much as it is about establishing a ruling dynasty. Aotearoa’s own version of the Gandhi family.
Tim Perry.. of all the players who had multiple starts for the Blues he was the worst. Second place is miles behind him. Think of all the crap players that played for the Blues over the decades Tim Perry was number one. Well done.
Managed to win three super rugby titles though!
Didn't really watch him at the blues but he was decent for the crusaders and ultimately managed to push crockett out of starting his last final.
Not to mention a fairytale end to his career winning the M10 Cup with the Mako in his final match.
On Schmidt joining AB selection panel, and where it will take him, I have just finished Steve Hansen's book, he's pretty good mates with Schmidt. He talks of mentions how much trouble Schmidt was having with the pressure while coaching Ireland (had read that before) and though he was NZR's preferred choice to take AB's job he needed a break away. Hope he just takes it easy coming into whatever roles he does and builds from there.
@Kid-Chocolate actually I used to work for the owner of the winner (didn't back it though), folks on here who know racing might know how rich this farker is, but I had 26-1 on Dark Destroyer from a bet way back, I know the owners of this horse very well and was set for this, a soft track I think I may have had a huge day ..alas not to be
LOL first time ever I've had the 'this topic looks old' message on this thread. Over the last 6 months I would have been to the gym 3-4 times, including today! Alive and surviving but not exactly thriving. Especially on the exercise side of things.
We two-scooped C4 and trained for two hours. Hour of legs then the rest - was mean as to get that pump again. Arnie isn't wrong ha ha.
I will be ruined next week but it was worth it. My training bro is about to become a new dad, so we'll have to see how his life changes.
@majorrage has there been a problem with GPS or did they reach an agreement with the EU over the satelites?
Regards discrimination, most of my foreign pals are outside London (and some are far north England) so that may be a factor.
Talk on that has gone quiet since the deal was signed, so I suspect this was included in that.
No doubt location is a factor, but I should point out, I'm not in London.
I'm currently reading the books. Got em on Kindle so it has merged all 5 books into one which physiologically makes it a tough as you don't feel like you are making much progress. Have got 69% of the way through.
They are freaking awesome though.
The detail on the houses the families is fucking amazing isn’t it.
