Otaaaago 6-0

The only sign of any build up to last night’s rugby game when we passed through Dunedin yesterday afternoon was a lone car painted in Highlanders’ colours and playing the Highlanders’ song.

There was none of the usual excitement about the match against that team from the wrong side of the Waitaki which usually engenders strong support from both sides.

However, from what I could see on TV, it looked like a reasonable crowd so perhaps the southern fans responded to the come-to-see-us-or-lose-us  message from Highlanders chief executive Richard Reid.

It might have been a good crowd though not a record one, but it was a record score – the lowest in the Super 14 history: Highlanders 6 – Crusaders 0.

    I know people who went to the game mainly for the entertainment as the band Shihad was playing. Great score though!
