Quality sportswriting in the Dom-Post

From an article about the Hurricanes rugby team’s early-season performance. These are consecutive paragraphs:

The worry for Boyd was whether the rest of the side would take up the slack.

Goodes has been a revelation.

He got his chance, when Jeffery Toomaga-Allen’s knee flared up, and took it with both hands.

Shields has rolled his sleeves up.

Woodward has quickly put his poor provincial season form in the rear view mirror, and Gibbins has shown the ship won’t sink without Ardie Savea in the No 7 jersey.
