More cut throat headlines from the cutting edge NZ media courtesy of the NZ Herald:
"All Blacks: Weepu injury scare
New 2:30PM Wednesday Aug 12, 2009
Further injury concerns for the All Blacks after halfback Piri Weepu went down at training this afternoon.
The All Blacks are holding a one-day training camp at the Trusts Stadium in West Auckland today and were practicing taking high balls when Weepu went down. He was helped from the field by an All Blacks trainer, putting no weight on left ankle.A concerned Graham Henry had a chat to the halfback but it is not yet known how serious the injury is.”
It’s almost as bad as last week’s headline in Stuff: ‘DiCaprio dates another model’ or what about this one (another Stuff speciality): ‘Tourist groped Minnie Mouse’.
What will be next? “A leaf falls to the ground.” Is the NZ media the worst media in the world? Quite frankly, I think its up there. As for Weepu – it’s rugby, people get injured, do we really have to read about him rolling his ankle and falling on his wobbly bottom in training?
