Two finals tonight

The Highlanders meet the Hurricanes in the final tonight.

Once the Crusaders were out of contention several friends from Canterbury told me they were backing the Mainland team.

That’s a fair return for all the times those of us on the right side of the Waitaki have backed the Crusaders when the Highlanders have no longer been in contention.

While rugby has been getting a lot of attention, there’s another big final tonight – the ANZ Young Farmer competition.

    Thanks – your support is working. 13-8 at half-time. But we win a lot of first halves so it’s too soon to get too excited, although now it’s 18-8. . .
    And Matthew Bell has won the Young Farmer competition.

    I note another media person on state TV committed the massive doctrinal error in suggesting Lord Mcaw of Haka was born in
    Otago.

    On another contentious matter, imeho Otago is on the Left Bank as one should face the mountains from where inspiration and the mighty Waitaki come, not facing the sea where everything ends up.

    Richie was born in Oamaru hospital on the true right of the Waitaki which is taken facing the same way the water flows, i.e. with the water not against it.

    So, who let Don take Margaret and that baby back to the Haka Valley, clearly some treachery right there, needs investigating before all the witnesses disappear and we are reduced to “oral history” for the record.
    With a new Bridge It can only get worse as refugees flee from your right side to mine.

    Never turn your back in the lower Waitaki, there are signs warning of unexpected flood surges in the river, I met a man once who was swept of his feet in such a rapid rising water event, worse he lost the blimmin fish and it has been getting bigger with every telling.
