Waikato 37 Wellington 31

It was a sell out, 25,000 fans in the stadium and reportedly 18,000 cow bells, Wellington never had a chance. What a game, what a night and what a way to finish off a near perfect Waikato season. The scoreline was fair if a little flattering to Wellington but the side that bought their best game won the match and that's all you can ask. It was a coming of age for the Mooloo men and fans alike. The team lived up to the huge expectation the fans had of them and the fans were finally rewarded after such a long wait, 1992 seems an age away. Well done team I for one will never forget Saturday 20th October.

With such a big game you need a meal you can eat on the couch in front of the television. You need a meal that goes well with the vast quantities of beer being drunk and something that will keep you going into the small hours or in our case 8am Sunday morning when we finally called it a night.
We had beef eye fillet left over from a couple of nights ago (purposefully kept for this occasion) and with the simple addition of beef gravy and sauerkraut it was the perfect big match meal.

The beef was thinly sliced and then heated up in the oven with the gravy. The bread is 'tiger' bread from Foodtown. The sauerkraut was from a tin and was spread on the rolls and the meat placed on top. It doesn't look like much but it was absolutely delicious and will definately be making another appearence at some stage.

Thanks Jono
