Practice Blog - Hawkes Bay Trip Day 2

The Test begins

sunny 25 °C

Woke at 5 AM and went for a walk around the streets of Tokoroa for 45 minutes - later told I was barking mad by Aucklanders but hardly a soul to be seen and certainly no problems

Two hours drive including the Napier - Taupo Highway. Foggy but 12 degrees Celcius when we left Tokoroa and got down to 5 degrees Celcius on the highway before climbing back up to the late teens as we got into the Hotel at Hastings. Omahu Motel highly recommended ... what ever we needed the owners tried to oblige .. met the Taits who had stayed with family Friday night but would also be in the hotel and headed down the road to Napier for the start of the Test

Great start to the test .. NZ on top, Tim Southee on debut striking with the ball .. didn't last to much longer though.

Back to Hastings for the obligatory beers and restaurant meal at the the Corn Exchange ..
