Well, the kids got me out of bed NICE and early, so at least I can say I’m wide awake for this one.

Today is a special day for Sharksworld and for our team… we’re fortunate to have the whole country pulling together to support the SHarks and scream with one voice for a black and white victory. The guys in Nelson are focused and are going to deliver a classic performance today – I just know it.

I’m going to be watching the game at home, as usual, behind my laptop to do live updates and tweets. What about the rest of you? What special plans do you have for today’s game? Let us know – even if it’s just a quick comment to say that you’re here and as excited/nervous as we are.

A little pre-game banter never goes amiss either. Where’s that Megatron fella?

  • got to channel the spirit of that great 96 game… they showed us the way to win an overseas knockout game.

    Anyone got a team lineup for that one?

  • Crusaders walked from their Hotel to game, cause they could. Cold, dry and firm underfoot.
