Weekend review..

Some observation from the first round of the NRL competition.

Most impressive - between the Wests Tigers and St George. I thought Canberra were impressive too even if they didn't win.

On the Warriors - at 0-8 and 20-22 I thought that the game was gone. But the Warriors found a way to win. I think it's the first time a  number of years they have won their first game of the season.

Super Rugby
The Hurricanes have started this season well two wins and scoring over 70 points in both games. Next week should  be tougher with  game against the Chiefs.

Second last week of the pre-season, and it was good to see the Swans get a win. Looking forward to their first game of the season in two weeks. 

Was a great weekend in the Women's AFL.  The Giants got their first win, and every game was decided by less than a goal.  The game between Adelaide and Brisbane lived up wot the billing, with Brisbane winning, and are favourites to host the Grand Final. S


The second test is now underway in India, and Nathan Lyon showed his class taking 8/50 on the opening day. It is great to see Steven Smith show some more faith in Lyon. Not at all surprised by the cricket so far. Was surprised how many people wrote Australia off.  They haven't won yet, but they are certainly in the box seat at the moment. 

Wasn't a good weekend for the NZ cricket teams, but the Men's and Women's team lost the final match in the series, against South Africa and Australia respectively.  In spite of the final results, there was some great cricket played. Meg Lanning and Amy Satterthwaite  were excellent. 

The Men's team starts their test series against South Africa this week in Dunedin. Hoping for a great contest.

The weekend was great for Australian tennis - stoked for Ash Barty who won the ATP Malaysian Open.  Nick Kyrgios showed why  lot of Australia s frustrated with him. He displayed his potential with a straight sets win over Novak Djokovic It was a reminder of his exceptional talent and frustration that he sometimes seems to be wasting it.
