Took my nephews on Friday night. What can I say except Margot Robbie's arse saves the day. I have to ask don't the DC film writers understand humour or do they just take themselves too seriously. At least Marvel has a sense of humour and irony.
Hurricanes finally win the Super Rugby final on their third attempt. Not the greatest of finals due to the rain but good solid game. A Maori Jack Mormon friend of mine is seriously working on the "mother of all hangovers" at present. Two weeks till the Rugby championship and the Bledisloe Cup games. Would be good to see an annual North EPCR v South Super Rugby hemisphere championship game involving the respective winners. Could be played in the respective hemispheres on...
