Titans Tame Toothless Tigers

On Friday night we went to the Titans v Tigers match. It was the last of the home and away rounds and with both sides needing to win for the chance to take the coveted second position in the finals series a stirring, high quality match was expected. The Tigers team and officials travelled on the same flight from Sydney on Thursday as myself and should not have been suffering from jet lag but in the event they played so poorly anyone would have thought they had come straight to the ground from an around the world flight in cargo.

The final score was close but this only flattered the Tigers.

The home team, Titans, are sponsored by the airline company. Perhaps they nobbled the visitors? The airline used the match to promote it's 'destination of the week' encouraging the spectators to wave banners proclaiming that destination and also awarding one 'lucky' spectator two free return tickets to said city. Which city you ask? Well, twelve hours later that promotion looked a little unfortunate with news of a severe earthquake hitting Christchurch.
