8th June - Taranaki

Well original meeting place "Galbraiths Alehouse" was aborted very early on in the session, only 30 people there (all reading their papers and looking boring) and a sole 17" screen with the volume turned down, but hey The Kingslander in Kingsland was rocking... check out http://www.thekingslander.co.nz/

Terrible refereeing from the touchline meant The Lions were down at half time, but the "you can stuff you naki up your arse" tune was soon if full flow as The lions took control and slaughtered the naki.
Different uses for Union Jacks were found throughout the night, bullfighting being the most obvious use...  Another good time was had by all (well Lions Fans)...
