a day of two halves

Wales were beating the All Blacks at half time yesterday, then things started to go wrong.

First news started to drift in that Ben's rugby league game at 11am had been cancelled, then New Zealand came back to beat us. Without the Rutlish game to draw me out of the pub, we also stayed to watch England beat Australia fairly soundly on their tour. Google timeline has me in the Charles Holden from 8:19 until 13:23.

Later the day began to turn around. The opposition's no-show seems to translate to a 24-0 win which leaves the boys firmly entrenched at second in the league. In order for North Herts Crusaders to pip us for it they will have to beat us by 137 points at the last regular league game next weekend and we would still be in the play offs even if they did.

Follow that with Wales' win over Slovakia and England's draw with Russia leaving the boys in red sitting pretty on top of UEFA Euro 2016 Group B.

Not a bad return on the day, all in all.
