This will be my last Sunday post of tweets for a while. I’m finding it very difficult to keep up with this every day, so I’m going to take 2-3 days off each week. I’m not quite sure which days I’ll do yet, but, of course, I’ll let you know.

Also, on those few days where I do a “proper” post, I won’t be doing a tweets post too.

The good news is the All Black have just won another match! We played the Pumas (Argentina) at Estadio José Amalfitani in Buenos Aires and you can see the score!

It was a bit of a sloppy performance by the All Blacks, though several players had excellent individual games. Davil Havili got a try on his debut, which is great for him. There was some talk that the All Blacks were disrespecting the Pumas by the quality of the forwards they sent. However, the forwards were dominant over the Pumas forwards despite their skill.

A bad tackle saw our captain get a yellow card, which is not good. He was lucky not to get a red card. There was no malice in the tackle which is perhaps what made the difference. A Puma also got a yellow card earlier in the game.

This match is part of a four-way tournament that also includes Australia (Wallabies) and South Africa (Springboks). Before the game started, NZ was already the winner of the tournament as we have won all our games so far and have a lead that can’t be beaten.

We still have another match next week though, and it will be a matter of pride to win that. It’s against South Africa, in South Africa. They will want to make up for their big loss the last time we met, so I expect some fireworks. (Come to think of it, that game will be on a Sunday NZ time, so I might have to do another Sunday tweets post!)

These Pumas fans enjoyed the try they scored! (I wonder if that Massachusetts librarian thinks this hat is racist?)

 

NZ captain Kieran Reid scored two tries for the All Blacks.

 

There weren’t many NZ fans in the crowd, but the camera did find this one:


The All Blacks got into the local culture while they were in Argentina. Here are three of them trying out their language skills.

Why is anyone still surprised at the tone-deaf reactions of the US president?

Religion Tweets

Excellent news!

I have very little time for NZ political party NZ First, but they do have one policy I support – the repeal of our blasphemy law.

 

 Architecture Tweets

I think I said before  I want stained glass in my dream house. This example is not what I want, but it shows why I want it.

Science Tweets

It’s cool being a continent!

 

Now there’s an answer to the algebra question I never thought of!

 

Science is so cool!!!

 

Scenic Tweets

Wow!

There are lovely places like this all over the Pacific. Many even have hotels where you can get down into the ocean through the floor of your room.

Bird Tweets

Dr Andrew Digby was a great find on Twitter! Here are some more Kakapo chick pics and videos from him. Fantastic! (The first four tweets are the chicks from yesterday’s video in the Bird Tweets section.)

Isn’t it cute?!

 

Not what you want to find when you go to the bathroom! Beats finding a spider in the bath!

 

Where are its eyes?

 

Dog Tweets

This dog would make a good rugby player with that slide-stop. All he needs is a ball and he could be scoring a try!

Cat Tweets

Genius cats!

 

Look at that moustache! (Yes, that’s how we spell it in proper English!)

 

What a cutie!

 

This is in the Cat Tweets section because the cat is clearly in charge! The poor old dog looks rather resigned to his role as a cat bed. Like humans, he’s knows that getting up is not allowed in these situations!

 

Now that’s a moggy!

 

More adorable kitties.
