It's Friday again, and that means that it's time to talk sport; and there's another big sporting weekend ahead.
The All Blacks face possibly their most significant match since Cardiff in 2007 when they take on the South Africans in Soweto. We'll have a proper preview tomorrow, but this match looms as hugely important; rampant All Blacks versus wounded Springboks; we can't wait! In there meantime, there's a feast of ITM Cup rugby to be enjoyed, and it's only a week until the Heartland Championship kicks off, with the mighty Wanganui chasing a third-straight Meads Cup - bring it on!
The A-League is in full swing now, as is the Premier League in England. The Phoenix hosts Central Cost on Sunday, and they will be hoping to play football and not water polo this week. Conditions last week at the Ring of Fire were reminiscent of the 1975 test match against Scotland at Eden Park (which we attended), where BeeGee Williams walked on water! The 'Nix will certainly want a win this week.
The Warriors head to Brookvale Oval to take on the in-and-out Manly. A win for the Warriors should wrap up playoffs footy, and if they can keep winning, a home semi is still on the cards. We're picking a narrow win.
