I wasn't expecting that

All Blacks finally fronted up and started to play rugby at the kick off. Instead of just standing back and seeing what the opposition had to throw at us, they hit rucks, they smashed into the tackle and they did everything they could to actually get the ball in space to their potential game breakers

Winter Olympics - a complete shambolic shitbox of a competition

Lets start with the location. Bei fucking jing? Competing on a manufactured slope with a backdrop of cooling towers. I've spent a bit of time in Beijing and never ever in all my times there (across 4 seasons) did I ever think it would be a great place to hold a Winter Olympics.

All Blacks v Springboks I

Had to take an hour break after that to get myself together. Frustration doesn't even begin to start the way I feel about it.

Lions vs Springbok II

Firstly, it was a match of two halves. Neither half will please the Lions fans. Half one was every single thing that is wrong with modern rugby. It took 65 minutes, there was pretty much so no action, it was an absolute drudge fest.

What a day
