Those Squealer guys and gals really do make us laugh. Here is how they saw ANZ Sail Fiji.
So a few days after finishing I think I've got my breath back enough to write a final update for the #anzsailfiji race. Who remembers the 1995 Rugby World Cup Semi-Final between the All Blacks and England? The one where Jonah Lomu ran rampant right through the whole team and scored four tries, including that most memorable [...]
Squealer has pipped Django on the line to get them by 10 seconds!!! Awesome effort by this rowdy bunch from Tauranga. Nice work Squealer! We're all impressed. Now... have you found the rodent?
