Carn the Tahs!
Woooo! Super Rugby is back...well, it was back last weekend but WOOOOOO!!! The Tahs are back. Loved this from Peter Fitzsimons:
Tonight’s the night! Oh yeah, verily, although for too long we Waratahs supporters have walked in the shadow of the Valley of Death, tonight, as the Sky Blue warriors of our own fair land play the Redmen tribe who live in the scungy flatlands north of the Tweed, we will see the Promised Land! That is, we will see a smart, tough, forward pack with as little interest in collapsing scrums as they do in advancing the ball five centimetres at a time, because what they really want to do is first get the ball to the cougar backs who will swing it wide like mad things, to break up the defence, and then the forwards can thunder ahead like thirsty wild elephants who have just smelt water up beyond the try line. Linking superbly, elephants and cougars, cougars and elephants, time and again they will stomp and savage the Redmen into submission, as the scoreboard ticks over. Together, the whole Waratahs team will play with a combination of wild joy at the privilege to be able to play in such a game, and desperate passion to win it! They will do us proud.
