Letter: Rugby mentality

00:17, Jun 19 2014

I am at a total loss as to the reputation of the current All Black team.

Prior to its arrival there was so much blather and skite from the media and others about how the England team was a second-rate, B-team.

Yet the ''greatest team in the world'' can only just scrape home with points in all the games they have played.

I could say Steve Hansen and his 30 mates should do better.

Especially to back up the comments of the media.

This tells me a lot about the mentality of this country.

Rugby appears to be so much more important than people getting operations for ill health in this country.

After all this is election year. Where do our priorities lie? Health or rugby?

Let the people decide.
