You'd think with the entire global rugby TV market cornered, they might have capitalised on the opportunity and gone for time-zone friendlier kick-offs. A prime-time evening start over there would equate to a very pleasant breakfast here.
Ah well, I'll just set the alarm. Word has it there may even be fans ...

Tickets on sale Wednesday: premier.ticketek.co.nz/events/HIGHWAI20/.../EDND2020773/tickets
(not that I suggest flying over in the Clan Jet or anything, but it'll be good to hear some people shouting who haven't been pre-recorded)

I always suspected the NZRU read my posts. Good work lads (and congrats on licking that virus thingy ... for now).
8 am Saturday start is a lot more achievable. Might stick to the 10am re-run on the Sunday.

I was really looking forward to real crowd noise. But after three months, I'd forgotten that in Otago, crowd noise principally consists of people singing along to the hold music they play during breaks in play. I mean, they're in fine voice and all, but the Pulp Fiction theme, seriously, it has no lyrics ...
Ah, it's great to be back complaining about something.

The Aussie edition kicks off on July 3rd. More alarm-clock-friendly starts around the 10am mark, though one game is on a Friday so might require an extended morning tea break for some.
