Seems to me that those 'rugby boys' have to be a lot tougher than our padded and pampered american footballers...(MEN-IN-TIGHTS vs MEN-IN-UNDERWEAR!)...If it were a game of good ole fashioned 'whoop-ass', I think I'd have to put my money on our south-of-the-equator brothers (350 lbs USA linemen, not withstanding...he he he ...please don't kill me!!!).

Was going to ride the bike into town today to get its warrant of fitness but not in these conditions, a one in 50 year cold snap across the country.

Built it myself invader, just kidding, good old kiwi ingenuity (after all a kiwi split the atom) and brought it from a local shop and works well on various vehicles I own.
