The New Zealanders next game was against cellar-dwellers Eastern Transvaal, a team they didn't know much about.

Both parents were charged with a number of offences including endangering children. So what is it about drugs that cause can parents to put their children's lives at risk like this? A new study may shed some light on just what happens in the brains of drug addicts, and how this impacts on their parenting instincts. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania scanned the brains of 47 people before and after they underwent treatment for opioid dependence, showing them images of cute babies designed to provoke an instinctual response. And they found that the brains of people addicted to opioids didn't produce strong responses to the cute baby pictures compared with non addicts. One of the researchers, Dr Daniel Langleben, conducted the study.
