Matt- Pack your bags and come on down. Lots of jobs and the NSF does not seem to mind to hire Kiwis. About 10% of our winter crew is Kiwi.
The Senator always look great in the regular season. They need to find a goalie who doesn't break down.
You should see my hockey post a couple of days newer.

Yea, i read that post. Too bad about the hockey beard!

Its hard to follow american sports in NZ bcos of no tv coverage. Even the satalite tv we have only plays selected games.

And hockey over here isnt that great, i think we got beaten by mexico? that was a sad day. :(

What kind of jobs go on down there?
