18.03.1999 - 19.03.1999
Another early morning treat of Super 12 - but a disappointing Canterbury performance. We left for Pretoria discussing New Zealand rugby problems and drove initially along good motorways up to the high veld. More fast food was devoured in small town of Belfast before our remaining two hour drive in periodically intense heat to pretty Pretoria streets. Visited the stately government buildings (home to government half of each year) then toured Loftus Versfeld and were impressed by its form and its importance. Landed a 50 metre barefoot place kick with ease on B field during a run around. Got lost on our way to Anton's but enjoyed big braai and catch up yarns.
