A local man says he’s joined the Sith this afternoon, something he said he’d never thought he’d have to do.

But after recent events in England, Mark Coulter says he’s got no choice.

“I’ve had this All Blacks jersey in my closet since 2011 when my mates and I went over to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup,” he said.

“We won tickets to the final, the All Blacks against the French. We were pretty belted the day before and we al bought All Blacks jerseys for a laugh – and we wanted to know what it felt like to win for once,”

“Long story short, I haven’t really worn it since.”

Until now, he says.

The 31-year-old told The Advocate that the jersey still fits, giving him some good news.

“I don’t care who wins, as long as it’s not England,”

“Anybody. I’d even go for South Africa before England.”

More to come.
