HIGHLANDERS Brains Trust

Well, it was with bated breath last week that we awaited outcomes but this week we were left positively gasping – and this all for free! Super shout out to TSN. The CANES/BLUES contest was of an even higher standard than last week’s SADERS game and leaves one with the impression that anything is possible. As it transpired, this was mere, hors d’oeuvres for the ensuing ‘LANDERS/CHIEFS match! Both contests resulting in last play-of-the-game wins by two points, conducted with breath-taking skills. The critical turning points occurred from sheer happenstance and bad/good fortune. I am amazed at the quality of the halfbacks that are playing at this top level in NZ, orchestrating scintillating attacks from anywhere on the field. Anyway, if you have not watched it yet, there’s more to come this weekend. The final word goes to the referees who continue to be almost faultless. Never thought I’d say it!
Meanwhile on the Home Front.
