    LOL I wish. I'd spend a day or two talking to her for free if I thought she'd listen to what I had to say. Thankfully our mate Chris Luxon has her ear so hopefully she's listening to him and hopefully he's not talking about more greenwashing nonsense.

    Do you normally stop at one bottle, mini? If not, it's not a problem.

    Absolute classic.
    I reckon if Megan had of taken her Beagle she could have told it to "sick" the Queens Corgi's and then the fur really would have flown lol

    "The Queen told Meghan that she's 'destroyed Harry' by coming between him and Prince William and Kate."

    On a different note . fantastic that kiwi George Bennett is still 4th on the Tour De France.Anyone know if this is the best that a kiwi has done? he's hanging in there after 5 or 6 days but slipped a little in time from 25 secs off the yellow jersey to 40-50 secs.

    George Bennett still in 4th place after a week. Over 200km and about 5.hours today, top speed 74km. The race is 3460 KM long over 21 days! Winner gets 500, 000 Euro.
    A breakaway of just two guys for nearly all of it, pretty impressive. It gets tougher and tougher from here on and the last week the climbs are steeper and more frequent. Great to hear GB mentioned on the hews today.

    Alot of top riders caught out today as the race separated into 4 groups after surprise breakaways . George Bennett one of the unfortunate ,getting left in the last group with one team member who was no use to him.So he has dropped from 4th to way down the order and cant see him coming back atp. Int though that one of his team (there are 22 teams of 8 riders each) won the stage , a cycle cross world champion on his first tour. there is at least one other kiwi racing, will check out were he is coming.

    He didn't get left behind he was being used as a domestic , going back to get water bottles for the team .... then the peleton split . Why they were using someone so high up on GC as a domestic is a mystery they could have used him if something happened to their other top rider ...... Poor team call this one.

    Thanks for that detail stop loss. I think the timing of the breakout was bad luck for Bennett.Thats weird using him as a "domestic". Am enjoying the commentary on le tour, very knowledgeable and enjoyable former competitors, both?Know who they are?Thanks.

    If you are watching this via sky nz you will have 2 aussie commentators . Matthew Keenan who to the best of my knowledge is just a commentator and Robbie McEwen , who rode TDF 12 times and was one of the best sprinters in his day .
