New Slains Castle - New Slains Castle belonged to the Hay family for 300 years! Redesigned in the 1830’s in Scots Baronial Style. It was sold in 1913 and de-roofed in 1925 to avoid taxes. It has been abandoned ever since.

It is said to have been the Castle inspiration for Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, as he may have been a guest in 1895!

So I almost got a heart attack tonight, thanks to The All Blacks.

At first I thought that this was going to be an easy win.

God, they all looked good. Especially Aaron Cruden :) & Israel Dagg.

I was thinking about how last weekend’s game against the Aussies was so beautiful

There were a few mistakes and not great conversions/penalty kicks from our boy Piri which got the whole crowd like:

Cruden’s injury didn’t help. & then Donald was going to the penalty kick and we didn’t know if we could rely on him, but then it was a miracle upon miracles so we were all like:

But then by the time France got a try, my friends and I were like:

We were preparing for a violent outcry that would have made the riots in England look like a small hissy fit.

But it was nearing full time and the All Blacks had the ball and we kept scrumming and what not and and and and 

FULL TIME!!!!!!!!

That is all. Thanks All Blacks for keeping NZ a safe place.
