As to my earlier blog bemoaning Dan Carter not playing. I heard a rep from the NZRFU on Scoreboard ZB yesterday stating it was Dan and the Canterbury union's choice, not the NZRFU. That being said, I withdraw that earlier comment criticising them. As it was, Canterbury did not need him, slogging out a good win, just.
Nice to see Hosea Gear in the AB's, he deserved it.
That being said, he should have played. Go the Kiwis! Go the Silver Ferns! Go the Phoenix!
