    The decision to take a scrum in that situation was fairly ridiculous. Particularly when keeping in mind how stacked the Highlanders bench was with forwards. They were always going to try dominate up front. Tap it, take the line out, take the 3 points. Anything but scrum.

    Our decision making all night was pretty meh. It was quite obvious Barrett wasn't 100% and he's one factor in costing us the game. He was hesitant to kick and didn't kick when he should have, got isolated etc.

    Some fucking dumb penalties from us too. I am so disappointed. That was probably our worst performance bar that Saders loss, all season. Atmosphere was good though. Quite a few Landers fans there too. All I can say is I got out of that stadium fast. That was our year to win it and tbh I can't see us winning it for many years to come now. With the departures and the Savea's, Barrett, Vito etc. probably playing sevens next year, our side will definitely lose some fire power but who knows still a year away and no doubt there'll be some standouts pop up in the ITM Cup. Still a Canes fan (always will be) but my golly I may have been on an emotional ride with them for years but this has gotta be the lowest I've been (after such a good season too) - comes to nothing now.

    Easily the best ever season for both the canes and the highlanders.

    Only thing that can come close to rectifying my disappointment this year is Welly winning 2nd div in the ITM Cup, Manawatu winning 1st div and the AB's winning the RWC..............maybe I'm just getting too caught up about it all but fuck this is depressing.

    Yeah I was a bit gutted... wasn't convinced of the try either and when Savea spilled the pill on the line I wondered if that was a sign they weren't gonna win... but hey if you were gonna choose a side to lose to why not the Highlanders - my 2nd favourite team!

    Gutted for all the old guys at the Canes as the Highlanders will just get better when you look at the young blood that is doing so well there.
  6. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Yeah if I could choose any team to lose to it's them. It was the Canes year to win though, as you'd feel the Landers would do better next season. Gonna be interesting with the sevens taking a few guys out from various teams.
  7. Rego RS Hutchinson

    On to the ITM Cup now.

    This is like the AB's losing to Ireland at home or something. Should never have lost we had soooo much more class :'(

    Agreed but that's rugby. The Highlanders were always going to be tough. I was getting pretty annoyed at people completely writing them off. Just think back to the RWC 2011 final.....was a pretty quiet ride back home on the train.

    @Hurricane the atmosphere was amazing. It was probably helped by the fact there was a decent amount of Landers supporters there too so people got more into it, and it was a final. When I arrived in the concourse there was a deafening chant of "Waisake Naholo" followed by "Jerry". There was no faulting the atmosphere. A guy sat next to me seemed quite knowledgeable and we passed a few comments throughout the game, which was nice as the person I was with, was there just so I didn't have to go alone haha.

    The two tries one allowed and one missed were the pivotal moments...

    And the goal kicking.

    That highlanders lad has a huge future!

    Yeah I nearly volunteered to keep you company when you said you were desperate but I had already been invited with my main crew, and I couldn't turn them down and then go with someone else, plus I knew you would find someone in the end.

    One day if we can get Heef interested the three of us should head into watch a Lions match especially if they can put a good team next season.

    Still can't believe the Canes lost. X_x
