Play with pride
Having watched Taranaki play so dismally against Wellington, and the coach and television commentators telling me that we have a great team because we have so much experience . . . well, be damned with experience.
I want enthusiasm, I want a team I can be proud of, win or lose, that play with guts and determination and not for the money that they are being paid.
I want a team of locals who may still get beaten by the same score but show determination and pride in our great province.
