Satorially black and blue

The expansion of the Tri Nations to include the Pumas in the Rugby Championship is good for the sport.

I don’t think I was alone in getting a bit bored with New Zealand playing Australia and South Africa so often and the addition of Argentina injects fresh interest.

It will also help the team.

The Pumas started as the under-dogs but their draw with South Africa in Mendoza shows they are competitive.

If they were playing any other team tonight I’d be backing them.

But when they play New Zealand my affection for Argentina takes a step back and black trumps blue in my emotions.

Sartorially though it’s a bit tricky because while like most New Zealanders I have a lot of black in my wardrobe I also have a lot of blue.

That reflects how I feel about tonight’s game.

The blue shows I hope the Pumas play well, the black shows I hope they don’t play too well.

    One thing Los Pumas have with the home matches is using grounds that are narrower than what most international games are played on and that suits their forward dominated game.
    It has given the ABs some moments in history.
    I agree the tri-nations had done its dash and expansion to include the blue and whites can only be good.

    The ABs will win but one thing is certain at 10pm they will know they played a game for sure.

    looking forward to the game BUT the weather could make it a farce .. mind you, one of the AB’s best games, v Aust, was played in appaling condistions in Wgtn
