Well Dad, you would have been stoked tonight watching the All Blacks beat the Wallabies in the first Bledisloe Cup game of 2009 - final score was 22-16. The Wallabies will be keen to atone for their narrow loss in the 2008 Bledisloe Cup and bring the cup back to their home soil, but the mighty All Blacks showed them that it was not going to be easy - we want to keep the cup on NZ soil and we're fighting for it!
Dad was a very keen rugby fan. He used to make comments to the TV screen about the mistakes the ref and players made - got right into it. He particularly enjoyed ringing up the Aussie son-in-laws to rub it in when their team lost (of course that went both ways!).
