Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

Not a good idea to write off the Northern hemisphere teams....just ask the AB's.
Aus and Nz are the standout teams but the pack behind them are not that far off and a team like France or England, or even Wales, could run them close on their day.

Not sure what you are getting at.....Wilkinson said that himself.....
"Wilkinson refused to use any external factors as an excuse and placed the blame solely on his shoulders.

"I'm not going to apportion any kind of blame other than that on myself," said the former Newcastle Falcon.

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

Watched a replay of Ireland and USA, and while the Americans did not look that great, they did look very fit and strong. Imagine if they were professionals and had the skills of some other teams, they they would be scary!

NZ can beat France, so long as Wayne Barnes ain't reffing the match.

I saw it again on the news and you're right - the 2D doesn't help for the viewer from home.

And so you know "Kai Ora" is used as a greeting or an agreement, for goodbye (which I assume you were saying) you say "E noho ra".

Sorry, I wasnt trying to kick anyone on the forum; the Welsh seem to be up in arms about this decision, but hey that's their national pride.

And no, it was meant to be at the top of the post, but for some editing and poor checking on my part.

Oh, and yeah, Canadian in disguise (I just live in Houston).

The Sky Commentary team in the UK seemed to be blaming everything (ball, stadium wind) but the kickers (both the English/Argentinian) for the poor strike rate.

I think this was just during the game as it's such a strange thing to see Wilkinson miss that many in a row.

I am glad that he came out and said he was to blame, although he said he was striking the ball well and couldn't understand why he was missing.

I think he will be on form next game with his kicking.

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

I pick NZ for the win (despite what the Aussies here say).

I hope my Japanese boys do well.

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

Big win for Canada to open with!!!! A come-from-behind win at that!

Canada's in pool A, meaning that they have only two winnable games (they arent taking down France or NZ - those will be pride matches to keep the score close and maybe get a tri bonus...).

Jebb Sinclair and Adam Kleeberger have two of the manliest beards Ive ever seen! Worth a look there - I think those beards are worth at least a field goal per game!
