Lollies for future-cows.
I’m pretty sure we latched onto rugby as our “national game” for the same reason as every other country chose theirs: it’s the one “we” actually win at most often!
Statistically though, in NZ now there are many more young kids playing soccer than rugby (worried cosseting parents), so rugby may decline in a couple more decades.
Currently the pastures around here are looking fantastic, best growth so far with ALL the rain, yet still warm Auntumn days like today.
This is down a track behind my across-the-road neighbours – so I’d guess, looking due-South.
Because I always kind of think of my triangle of land as a compass-needle, with the pointy end of the triangle due-North.
(note: I haven’t actually tested this theory with a real compass yet!)
