Across the pond, we can take it as read that it’s going to be a pretty, pretty, pretty good day for Brian Murphy, whose beloved Golden State Warriors reclaimed the NBA championship title last night, beating out the Boston Celtics 4-2. We’ll catch up with Brian next week, but today we take a look at how the Warriors themselves were feeling post-victory.


We chat to Shane Horgan, Gerry Thornley and our man in South Africa, Craig Ray, about how devilishly difficult this NZ tour is, if the pressure cooker nature of it will produce a back up outhalf, the damage done to Ulster, Leinster and Munster by their last few defeats and why and how South African teams, fans and media are so into the URC already.
