The unspoken final? SA vs France
SA have the physical game to beat NZ, although I think they have their work cut out for them in the backs to produce the necessary creativity against the All Blacks. SA certainly have the ga...

POOL GAMES - final stats.
So it's over in the pools! Everyone has splashed around, and had their fun; and the usual suspects have emerged. More so:- for the FIRST time ever, the final 8 are *exactly* the traditio...

Glad we are not playing the Springboks next week
After this weekend I think every Wallaby supporter would be glad to be fronting Scotland rather than France but the darkest of dark horses seems to be coming from another source....

Poor ole Rube , every time the AB s don't play well, its Rubes fault,ho hum,mind you, the cries usually come out outside of Christchurch,so funny,no I am not from Christchurch,okay it wasn...

This is just what we needed. A nice hard game. The ABs will be ready next week, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Rubix running around like a headless chook!
There was an instant in the first half where a Welsh player was making a break down the middle and instead of tackling the guy Rubix ran in the opposite direction! That was frikkin' hilariou...

Wales V New Zealand Archives
We Welsh need some perspective on what happened today. Take a look at this Welsh team that played NZ in 1969. Brian Thomas Norman Gale Denzel Williams Brian Price ...

If AB fans can get over their egos..

Hmmm - after Joe Worsley's behaviour today, you can hardly blame the Aussie media for some of their comments. Good to see Woodward gave him a public slap afterwards though. ...

[ZP] Some English results
Round 8 and things going to form pretty well everywhere. The TV game was particularly unusual, in that it kept me from listening to the Bath v Leicester game on internet radio. I...
