Night talk, Mitch Harris opening comments for Monday 27th August 2018.
Tonight: Should the government give the All Blacks money to keep our top players here?
Following the retention of the Bledisloe Cup at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday night, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen made some interesting comments about retaining New Zealand players - including taking the opportunity to ask Sport and Recreation Minister Grant Robertson for government funding (as Robertson and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern were in the sheds following the 40-12 win).
Where do you stand on this debate? Would you be happy if the Government stumped up millions of dollars and handed it over to the All Blacks? Should this money be given to those more in need, like teachers and nurses?
Night Talk with Mitch Harris, 8pm - 12am Monday to Thursday nights on RadioLIVE, and streaming live to the rova app on Android and iPhone.
