Rugby

Purely a diary photo as this day was beset by both a crippling back problem and great highlights of three good rugby matches two of which were held in the Indoor Stadium in Dunedin.
My iPhone does not take good photos.
To be thankful for:
Being inside this stadium as we heard downpours of icy rain thundering overhead! It was only 6degC in there!
Sorry to hear about your back. I know the cold weather doesn't help it any either

@grammyn Thanks, Katy - inside is nice and warm and also a hottie helps!

Take care of your back. I find that I like a hot pad on my back versus cold.

Not a good thing to do perhaps on a cold winters day sit in a cold stadium, should have been at home watching on the TV with a warm cushion in your back & hot chocolate! Always good to be actually there though...hope you improve quickly, sore backs are a miserable experience!

@happypat I'm working on it thanks, Pat! Taken all sorts of pills and one has actually relieved the pain. Mind you, I feel kinda spaced out!

After yesterday's Bledisloe Cup debacle I don't think I want to know about rugby. 😢

Hope that your back issues are soon resolved.

@golftragic Sorry about that Marnie - NZ are good at some things!

Lots of spare seats at the game.
I've never seen a rugby game live but quite enjoy on TV. The loud crowd would be a bit much for me but perhaps I should try and get tickets for one of the Scotland games.
Go gently with your back and hope it improves.

@sarah19 It's quite different when sitting on the sidelines - you have all the youngones yelling and screaming and chanting - but the roar of the crowd when there might be a try is quite exciting!

@maggiemae As a born-and-bred died-in-the-wool AFL girl, I have zero interest in rugby (union or league), but I do take some interest in our various national teams' endeavours. Gotta admit, you Kiwis are better than Oz at rugby. Mind you, only two of our states can be called rugby territory, the rest of Oz is AFL. You deserve the Bledisloe Cup, pity our lot were so bloody pathetic.

@golftragic I don't know if many kiwi's could spell what AFL meant! However all those guys in short shorts running athletically around would bring winks from the girls?
