The Holy Head Is Watching

With creaking and cracking heard throughout the room the Holy Head of Antelope turned upon all those gathered.Someone will die tonight.

Air NZ Cup (ex-NPC) fixtures now loaded into the rugby calendar

I have put all the fixtures into the Rugby Calendar as happening on a Thursday (yep, Thursday kick-off's from now on) but not the actual times or venues as they're not known yet.

My comments on the revised format and fixtures:
  • Good to see it's been simplified
  • Seems a wee bit fixed that the "top" sides don't play in the round robin stages
  • Two games at the same time on Friday is dumb - couldn't they have managed that better?!
  • Sky TV (here in NZ) is obviously a huuuge player and influence on the NZRU, I wonder how much it's influencing the 2011 World Cup planning
  • Quarter, semi's and final on the same weekend as the equivalent World Cup games is gonna make for some huge weekends of rugby
    (October weekends 6th/7th, 13th/14th and 20th)
