There seems an obvious answer to the question of who might
invest in a 49% stake of the Highlanders franchise.
The All Blacks can't scrum, they have not put together
convincing back-to-back performances in ages, Richie's too
old, Dan's too injured, everyone's getting a sabbatical, and
world rugby is not really strong right now.
Dare to dream. Oh.
A New Zealand sporting crisis is when Richie McCaw decides it
is time to retire.
Yes, I agree. With Liverpool doing reasonably well, and the
Red Sox in the World Series, and North Otago in the Meads Cup
final, it is a GREAT time to be a sports fan.
Sport is so cruel.
Well, it's over.
OPINION: The first point to make is that it is not
necessarily a bad thing that the Highlanders are going
through a mass exodus of players on a scale with any period
in their history.
