I used the rollar skating ring out Manakau way but only because my sister and her husband used to own it.

Best wishes.

As a matter of interest, what era were you at Kelston/Glenora - Lonergan, Fuemana; Hepi or Hiko?

I remember Glenora had a good U18 side with Lonergan and others. You remember that team?

Yea. From memory they were unbeaten it may have been from U16's. A relation played hooker in the squad. He always has fond memories of Lonergan banging with the best.

Seems these guys may have been a bit older than NU.

Who were you playing for at the time?

I was always a Glenora man. I can remember Lonergan packing out the gym with his boxing displays. A little before my time yes. I had a couple of Deans team mates as coaches back then though. Allan Cumming was one of the coaches. He was a halfback, his nick name was cuddles because he was such a good tackler.
A few years later i Maurice Watene as a coach. He was the sax player in Herbs. Anyone remember Herbs? Legendry Kiwi band!

I played down the road at New Lynn before moving onto Glenora - not that side as older than me.

There was Redvers, Sopo, Deano, Hiko, Mann, Hutchinson plus others.

Well this is the only rugby union thread I could find through the search function but.....

If you like rugby in general, a lot of analysis from both games apply both ways... sort of


This guy Squidge rugby does really , really good analysis videos.
Maybe some of you would be interested that's all I'm saying.
You could start a new thread and call it something like "The ABs are totally overrated, I've seen less handling errors in a game of u8s league".

I have not seen a game since the World cup in South Africa.

I was thinking I should watch modern Rugby, it will be better than the game I walked away from because their backs didn't know how to set up the best attacking player in the world J.Lomu.

Did my head in watching him get used like a battering Ram, what a waste.

Dude had wheels.

Glad I didn't see the last two games then, I would have felt Jinxed!
