Sometimes watching history taking place is not what it is cracked up to be.
Last night I watched history being made in the Super 14 as the lowest score ever was recorded – 6-0 to the Highlanders over the Crusaders.
That said even in such a low scoring affair and against an under strength Crusaders side a win is a win and must be enjoyed! Not only did we beat the Crusaders but we also became the first team in Super Rugby History to hold the Crusaders scoreless – an amazing feat in itself.
As a Highlanders supporter since day one, life has been pretty tough – we had a great couple of years in 98/99Â but since then nothing much has eventuated and it was the Crusaders themselves who denied the Highlanders their only title chance.
One of my friends is a Crusaders supporter who has had one up on me for a long timeÂ – I can just hear the excuses he’ll be making about last night!
However, aside from a low scoring game, the biggest irony yesterday was that 3 games of rugby were played in New Zealand in glorious conditions – why therefore can we not get a full one day game of cricket played against the Indians!
