I know there’s only two games in town for us Kiwis. This weekend it’s all about the Warriors.
But apart from rooting for the Irish (not literally) in Dunedin tomorrow night against Italy, I’ll be paying attention to another grand final today.
Collingwood (Magpies) plays Geelong (Cats) in the grand final of the AFL late this afternoon at the MCG (from 2.30pm Aus time).
I don’t imagine there’s many AFL fans out there, but I lived in Melbourne for 8 years and you can’t survive in that town without supporting an AFL team. Collingwood fans are pretty notorious. I’m one of them.
And then tomorrow night the Warriors play Manly Sea Eagles in in the NRL grand final
So Go the Pies and the Warriors and the Irish this weekend.
