Aisle be Back: The Rugby Championship kicks off

22/07/2019

By Kevin McCarthy Argentina should be kicking themselves for not finally nailing the All Blacks on Sunday. Facing a deliberately weaker visiting side, it really was set up for them. Not that the All Blacks will ever surrender easily and so we saw. There was a ton of starch in the defensive effort and just

Aisle be Back: Hurricanes v Crusaders (review and wrap)

04/07/2019

By Kevin McCarthy I’m writing this on a Thursday so that’s like Day Five after the game and the coulda shoulda woulda froth is starting to subside. Just to get it out of the way. Sam Whitelock did cheat. But it does not follow that we would have scored. You can rage all you like,

Aisle be Back: Hurricanes v Crusaders (Semi-final)

27/06/2019

By Kevin McCarthy As you’ll know, the season probably ends this weekend in Christchurch. On probabilities, the Crusaders will be too good for the Hurricanes. But of course probabilities aren’t certainties. The probabilities are built on what makes the Crusaders so difficult to beat, particularly at home – a world class pack, a world class

Aisle be Back: Hurricanes v Bulls (quarterfinal)

20/06/2019

By Kevin McCarthy It would be a cruel heart which was not sorry for the South African cricketers this week, who having dug themselves into a hole, then proceed to keep looking in the bottom of it for a way out. I personally was sorry for them. But then after about 10 seconds, I thought,

Aisle be Back: Hurricanes v Blues

13/06/2019

By Kevin McCarthy  Never say Never but it’s hard to believe that Beaudie for the Blues is anything other than the sort of stuff that comes out when a player is off contract and trying to get the best deal. A move surely wouldn’t be about greater opportunity or moving out of another’s shadow to
