Toupe wearers would be well advised to stay indoors

Bummer, I'd better stay home then :lol:

Looks like goal kicking will be at a premium. Lyons really struggled up here last night and he is a good kicker. Let's hope the wind is less vicious in Sydney, otherwise we'll have to score 15 tries to win!

High ball will be going everywhere and anywhere tonight. May also rain. Sydney is NOT the place to be today.

The SFS is pretty good for keeping big winds at bay. It won't be as bad as the U20's game currently in progress at Parra stadium. One team is getting 60m on the dropout, and the other is struggling to get 40m.

Fairly blowy at the Dogs game there, the flags up top were going crazy, the flags on the goalposts were dead still.

I took my 5 year old son and two nephews (14 and 11) to their first ever games. We were all wearing thermals, ski jackets and beanies. We got there about 6:45 and it started raining about 5 minutes before we got to the ground. We were sitting under cover, but the wind was still blowing the rain in. The goal posts were wobbling all over the place.

Still, we had a great view of the 2nd half comeback, as we were in line with the goal line on the left side. I saw Benji's flick pass for the last try so clearly that I was just laughing myself silly.

And despite the cold, we all had a great time and my son can't wait to go again...
