Because I feel the need to crow on my blogsite about my unparalleled genius.
So please indulge me as I get this out of my system.
TOLD YOU SO! TOLD YOU SO!
Yes, that does feel good.
In this case my crowing is over an entirely trivial matter - the All Blacks team.
When the selectors announced the team for the Northern Hemisphere I was dismayed to notice the absence of a third hooker in the squad. Especially when one of the two hookers selected has had a series of injury problems over his career. I made my opinion known on a sports blogsite, and then waited. And waited.... and waited...
And then this morning this.
The All Blacks insist their gamble to pick just two hookers in their rugby tour squad hasn't backfired as a Corey Flynn hamstring strain saw Aled de Malmanche rushed in from a Bali holiday for a potential bench spot against England.Graham Henry, next time you pick a team, please call me. I could have saved you a lot of bother.
Flynn was rated doubtful for Sunday's (NZT) test at Twickenham after suffering the twinge near the end of yesterday's session.
(See, that wasn't too unbearable, was it? Wait... where are you going? Come back!)
