Last DayI thought I was here for another week, but it turns out this is my last day here in 'N'. The only loss is the week's pay, but for me that is fairly substantial.
I'm heading down to Sydney on Sunday to spend a few days there, and will probably be back in Brisbane Thursday night.
I had an epiphany the other day, but I can't remember it.
I would also say more about my time here in 'N', but at this stage that would take more introspection, reflection and general thought than I care to exercise at this particular time of a Friday afternoon. Perhaps tomorrow or next week.
Good luck to the Wallabies in the Bledisloe Cup. I think they'll actually have a very good chance if Chris Whitaker starts for the injured Gregan. Gregan may be a good captain, but Whitaker is the better scrum-half, by a mile. Anyone who saw the difference he made coming on against South Africa in last year's Tri-Nations would know that. The speed of his pass out of the rucks and mauls changed the whole momentum of the Australian backline, and literally, you could see the difference. It may not have been noticeable on TV, but watching from the stands, that pass was burning. For the positive impact Whitaker can have on the game, the sooner Gregan retires the better. Just looked it up online, and it looks like Whitaker is the man. It's good to see Chris Latham getting a starting spot as well, just too bad it has to be at the expense of Joe Roff. At least Jones had the sense to put Matt Burke on the bench, but I can't believe he still makes the squad. He's over the hill, and seeing him continually start ahead of Latham in last year's World Cup infuriated me no end.
Alright, I have nothing more to say. Adios.
