Si & Gary debate if it's ever ok to use sport as an excuse to bail on something

Si & Gary 27/06/2017

Gary and his wife Katherine have been trying for weeks to organise a romantic date, but with 3 young kids it can be a mission to find a time!

They finally settled on a date night, this Saturday... But the catch is Gary would rather watch the All Blacks play.

Is it ok for Gary to cancel the date so he can watch the game? Gary thinks that if the All Blacks are playing you should automatically be allowed to cancel ANY previously set plans. Naturally, Si doesn't see it quite the same way...
