Ten years of sportreview.net.nz: The banners

This week marks the ten year anniversary of this blog making the internet worse. Cue a series of unprecedented navel gazing Рthanks for reading, team. 

Regular readers will know poorly conceived jokes and crap photoshopping are sportreview.net.nz cornerstones. The site banner usually contains both.

The first. Clive was an early target of sportreview’s popgun wrath.

World Cup 2006 edition.

Cricket World Cup 2007 edition.

General header. Look how young Richie is here.

Rugby World Cup 2007 edition. Remember how optimistic we all were then team?

2007 turned out a bit shit in the end, if you remember.

First header after moving the site to WordPress from Blogger. Must have been in a hurry with this one.

Never really got over that semi final.


The Subbuteo one, and the best IMHO. I should really go back to this one.


Stephen Fleming’s field for Jeff Wilson in the FICA Tsunami benefit match at Seddon Park.


Godzilla at Hamilton’s Rugby Park, ahead of the Wales v Samoa match in the 2011 World Cup.


This was the Seddon Park pitch ahead of the BLACKCAPS v West Indies third Test in 2013, fact fans. The sinkhole was photoshopped, just FYI.
