    Sorry about that game :p, you guys played really well, I'm stoked you northern hemisphere teams in general are starting to play expansively, shame about england though.

    Another kiwi bolt supporter is Piri Weepu (all black halfback, injured at the moment).

    How do u know about Piri being a Charger fan?. Wow that is cool. Real sorry to hear about the miners out west. We played well (esp considering the performance the week before) but we still are not as 'natural' as you guys. We make too many simple errors e.g. drops, knock ons etc. You guys are different class. I so hope you win it all at home next year. Met your Paddy O'Brien on the train back from Limerick last week (went down to see Munster beat the Aussies). Sound guy. Told me he spends 5 mths out of the year in Dublin.

    I saw him in a chargers jersey during a hurricanes game when he was injured. Thanks for the condolances, the nations pretty upset about it all.

    The naturalness will come, the only reason we appear so natural is because from birth we're all about the razzle dazzle, we hate playing 'tennis' and only really kick in our 22. Its only really come on since the start of the super rugby.

    Paddy O'Brien was a great ref and I'm glad he's got the top job.

    Who are you guys playing this weekend? We've got wales and I think after Fiji drew with them that they'll either be smarting and give us a real run for our money, or we'll just have our way with them. We've picked a big XV so I expect us to take the same direct approach that fiji did. I'm stoked that Scotland beat South Africa, what a game (well not really, but what a result!)
