After I saw this guy play for the Maori I reckoned it was a small percentage that was needed.

Spoiler!



Canada ran out poorly again this past weekend.

The Lions completed dominated the Maori All Blacks. There is still hope for a competitive series.

I was amazed at the Lions fans in Australia four years ago. I can imagine New Zealand being a smaller country feels completely swamped.

Also a bad weekend for Australia losing to Scotland. The fans here are very angry and are calling for major changes. I'm not sure anything can be done however barring major sporting cultural changes. Union is a niche sport played in private schools and the only reason the national team is competitive is from poaching League players.

First Lions test is on, 13-8 for NZ at the half. I tuned in late but it's been pretty intense from what I've seen. Lots of red in the stands too.

All New Zealand in the second half, 30-15 the final score with the Lions try coming at the very end when the result was already sealed.

The All Blacks win 30-15. It was an amazing match between two great teams and on a completely different level than the Australia Italy game I watched earlier.

Canada drew with the US today and play them again on Saturday for the berth in the RWC. It's hard to say whether they would be better off winning. A victory puts you in for sure, but the pool would be England, France Argentina and whoever Oceania 2 turns out to be.

A loss would mean they play Uruguay and if they win then it would be Australia, Wales, Georgia and Oceania 1. Neither group sets up well for Canada, so maybe you just work for the win, but I think that second group would be easier than the first.
