What ever happened to the grubber? You know flat opposition defensive line quick ball to 2nd five (think Mauger) who taps ball ALONG THE GROUND ball goes end over end twice and pops up as if on a string either back into the arms of the kicker or one of the outside backs screaming through at pace who then goes over for a try, also extremely useful when wing has little room down the touch line and only opposition wing or fullback to beat... (eg Goldie), surely a better option than the chip over the top as it is much harder to bend down on D and intercept or get a boot in the way especially when you are playing against mountain men such as the likes of Botha et al.
As to the downward trend of support for rugby in NZ how about buying back broadcast rights to the Air NZ cup and returning it to free to air?
Thanks for the clarification re: conscience votes, still, none the less disappointing...
Also very disappointing the Nats can bloc vote on a "conscience" issue.....
If I grow my own cannabis for my own use the only person or people I will "harm" are dealers and gangs so where is the crime?
Prohibition creates "criminals" surely it would be cheaper to decriminalise cannabis than to stack prisoners in shipping containers (people don't stack as well as frozen romneys either).
As per the CiR i guess there are no so called "average mother"s tied to right wing evangelical groups associated with NORMAL who can instigate such?
Another question: can someone explain to me what exactly Annette King did or didn't do that causes so many people to unquestioningly accept and support her so much?
Would it not be possible for you to do your own homework on that one Eleanor? She hasn't exactly been in hiding for the past nine years.
Well to tell the truth verbwrangle I must agree wholeheartedly with Eleanor. I have been a member of King's electorate for the past two government and am aware of absolutely nothing that King has done as my supposed Government representative either for my electorate or the wider community - other than as the outgoing Minister of Health tried and failed to introduce the the very misguided and unpopular ANZTPA.
Then as Police Minister blamed the moon on an increase in violent crime (during summer when naturally there are fewer moonlight hours), plus the "Guerillas" in the misty Uruweras saga,.....
BTW no I didn't vote for the Right........
