Oh so close yet so far ! The Blues rugby team lose again to the South African Sharks. With a disjointed crown of aprox 10,000 watching ; the Black Friday curse struck again . We Lost !!!
There is going to be some serious blood letting within the coaching team and the Auckland Rugby Union Board over this malaise . It is now at the stage of being embarrassing to the public that support the team. Lost 6 games…..won 1.
At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we had guests that watched and although most didn’t understand the rules they were enthusiastic . Shades of the RWC fever from last year. I even saw war paint on some of the supporters. Here’s oping that the ANZAC League Test next week between New Zealand and Australia goes better for us
