Technical Analysis

2018 Kate Sheppard Cup Final: Dunedin Technical 4-2 Forrest Hill Milford United I’ve written a fair bit about this Dunedin Technical side over the last couple of seasons, in the belief there was something a little bit special about them. Now with the team having put on such a grand […]

Get a grip

The secret formula to getting local football covered by the mainstream media seems to have been unearthed.  In recent days the NRFL has made headlines for the wrong reasons – those being two fights, one in South Auckland and one on the North Shore. At least the diverse locations show […]
