                                      Flooding in Victoria


Who: Victoria people

Where: Australia, Victoria

When: posted 3rd December 2017

What Happened:
The flooding going on in Victoria has prompted more than 1500 calls for help to emergency services. Heavy rain continued to fall across much of the Australian state. Authorities prepared for possible evacuations. Melbourne the capital city of Victoria has missed a lot of the rain however one owners luxury ride in a Maserati was ruined in the storm. The car was found underwater beneath a railway overpass.

My opinion:
I would hate to be in a flood like that and I wonder how they are feeling now?

                                         All Blacks Beat Wales

Who: All Blaks and Wales

Where: Wales

When: they played on the 25th of November

What Happened:
The All Blacks have beaten Wales 33-18 in their last game of 2017. The win means NZ have beaten Wales 30 consecutive times. I also means the All Blacks have finished the 2017 Autumn tour of Europe unbeaten. The All Blacks led 12-11 at halftime from Waisake Naholo scoring two tries in the first half. The All Blacks scored two tries in 6 minutes one from Anton Lienert-brown and Rieko Ioane to open up a 15-point gap. Wale then scored again through Scott Williams and Gareth Davies. but Ioane's late try gave them a late fight back.

My Opinion:
I am happy the All Blacks have gone unbeaten in this tour. I wonder if I will be alllowed to watch their first game next year because i think it is at Trafalger park?

                            NZ Breakers Win 8 In A Row



Who: NZ Breakers and Perth wildcats

When: Posted November 13 2017

Where: Perth, Australia

Why: for the NBL season

What Happened:
The NZ Breakers have now won 8 games in a row. Their last game was against the Perth Wildcats winning 88-82. After being down 41-39 at halftime Kirk Penney and DJ Newbill did most of the damage for the NZ Breakers. Newbill was the Breakers top scorer with 20 points. While the lead changed a number of times in the final quarter, the Breakers held their nerve to win by 6.

My Opinion: I am happy the Breaker have now won 8 games in a row. I wonder how the coach is feeling about it? I wonder if a team will break their streak?

   Aussie beat All blacks in the third test of the                               bledisloe cup

Who: All Blacks and Australia and crowd

When: the game was played on the 20th October

Where: Australia, Bisbane

What Happened:
Australia have come out with their first win against the All Blacks in 805 days. The score was 23-18. Australian Reece Hodge kicked a 53-meter penalty goal in the last 2 minutes to seal the match, all NZ needed was a converted try but couldn't get through the Aussie defence. The All Blacks lead by 1 point at halftime. The Wallabies wore special jerseys to honour Australias indigenous players. The All Blacks will be taking on the Barbarians in London.

My Opinion:
For it to be their first win in 805 days is very interesting. I hope we beat the Barbarians. I wonder what Steve Hansens reaction was what he thought of the All Blacks game.

Glossary:
Indigenous-originating or occuring naturally in a paticular place.

                                    Taranaki vs Canterbury

Who: Taranaki and Canterbury

When: The game was played on the 6th of October

Where: Christchurch, AMI stadium

What Happened:
Taranaki have lead themselves to a 55-43 win against Canterbury. The result ends Canterbury's 13-month streak as Ranfurly shield holders. The Taranaki Bulls had a superb second half scoring 4 tries with Marty Mckenzie kicking incredibly. It is the first time the have held the log 'o' wood since 2012.


My opinion:
I reckon it is quite impressive that Taranaki have taken over the shield and I am surprised it is the first time since 2012 knowing how good they are doing this season, but I hope the Tasman Makos beat them in the semi-final. I wonder which team will next hold the shield?
