Tall Ferns lose by Five



















In what would of been, the sporting acehivement
of the year, the New Zealand Woman's basketball
team just failed to pip powerhosue Australia, losing
79-95.

For years Brendan Telfer, Joseph Romanos and the
New Zealand sporting media have been spewing forth
their BS, about how great our Netballers and are and
our huge Netball is in Australia.

Well that may help their cause, but anyone who follows
womans international sport, will know what an amazing
basketball team the Australians are, and for the Tall
Ferns to come so close to creating history, well it's
worth applauding.

Im kinda guessing though, even if we had of won,
it would of been pushed to the backburner, because
in the New Zealand media you cant have a woman's
team sport that is in the spot light that isnt Netball.

Roll on  the Brazilian match.
