I actually forgot about this series of photos I took during Sunday’s Ranfurly Shield match between Otago and Hawkes Bay. Following last years unbeaten campaign, the Otago Spirit marched around the ground with their championship trophy at halftime. I meant to go back and process these photos later after the game, but I completely forgot about them until a message popped up this afternoon. FYI – if you’re following the Spirit (and you should!) their next match is against Wellington on Sunday 18th October, 12:05pm

This is the Eels as they arrived at Forysth Barr after warming up across the road at the University Oval. I remember thinking at the time, they look like they mean business. Then, 1 minute into the match after University had hardly touched the ball Taieri’s Kori Rupene bumped off two tacklers to put his side up 5 nil after winger Marc Rooney put him into space. 39 minutes later, Taieri had piled on 33 points and held a 21 point lead with 40 minutes left in the season. http://tapebootsandbeer.com @tapebootsandbeer
