Re: Rugby Weekend (16/6 + 17/6)
Weather update :
AB's v Canada, a little bit of rain in the last couple of days will mean the ground may be a touch soft, but all in all pretty good. What u have to remmember is this is a night game here (7.30pm). If it was a day game I would be unloading on the AB's. At night especially right now in the middle of winter alot of dew sets in, making conditions with the wetness tough in terms of ball handling.
If the forecast was bad I wouldn't have bet the AB's as in really wet conditions 72.5 points is alot to cover. That is not the case conditions will be pretty good other than the cold and dew.
Jnr AB's v Australia A
Dunedin has had alot of rain the last 2 days. More than for the AB's game in Hamilton. However today conditions have been good blue skies, allowing the ground to dry a little. Very cold, with it being a day game here it allows for a more expansive game. Ground will be soft and a little wet but not too bad. Doesn't look like raining again today.
