In the news: Locks Ali Williams and Ross Filipo relive their childhood as Spiderman and The Phantom, but deny they still collect rare comics and stamps or play Dungeons and Dragons together.
Physio's table: Casey Laulala (concussion), Dan Carter (high ankle strain).
The good: A loss is probably what the Cantabs needed to rev them up for the Blues this week. Stephen Brett may have been scratchy after his injury layoff, but he got through 80 minutes.
The bad: Finally, something to fill this spot. Skipper Richie McCaw looked jaded against the Chiefs and is being counselled this week after suffering from recurring Sione Lauaki nightmares.
In the news: Isa Nacewa escapes, I mean signs, with Leinster for next season.
Physio's table: George Pisi (hamstring), next week; Tom McCartney (hamstring), next week; Joe Rokocoko (wrist surgery), recovery time unknown.
The good: Former Hurricanes wing David Smith is found alive and well in Auckland.
The bad: "We've got a lot of confidence in David, so there has been no suggestion of [change] at all," said Blues chief executive Andy Dalton. Enough said.

-> As an e-friend of mine said yesterday, "attending one ANZAC remembrance service is something one must have lived in one's life for it's very moving". I can't this year (who knows about next year?) but if you are lucky enough to live this moment, feel free to share your feelings. Just to remind people that rugby may be very important in their lives but it's "only" a sport!
-> I will keep publishing the attack/defense articles against Richie but my thoughts are in my remark (published with the first "attack" article, http://richie-mccaw.blogspot.com/2008/04/henry-backs-mccaws-world-cup-leadership.html) ; and if anyone wants to share his/her views with the others, feel free to send it to me and I'll publish it :)
