 Obviously they will win all four.  Will anyone come within 10 points of the ABs?

All Blacks vs. Australia, Hong Kong 2010. It was a fairly sloppy game, but got better as it went on and the last 10 minutes is INSANE.


Full game:






Last 7 minutes:

Thxs Squatdog.

Crazy ending.

James O'Connor was eligible to play for the All Blacks, Wallabies, and Bok's because of family lineage. He is amazing for 20 years old.

Fixed!



I don't know how he finds time for his singing career, either...

The post-match interview with Ashley-Cooper was hilarious, too.

Ian Jones: "You made some good breaks in the midfield tonight"

Ashley Cooper: "Well, I've been watching Christian Cullen videos on Youtube all week..."

Awesome game. NZ needs to fix the lineout before the World Cup. Doubt that will happen.

That ref's scrum cadence was terrible.

Ashley Cooper is a black hole player. Give him the ball and he never passes.

seg that is why the All Blacks aren't playing the kicking game or kicking for touch. That is what they did in the Tri-Nations because they knew they couldn't compete with the Springboks lineouts.

As for the scrums you are so correct. Scrums need to be fixed in some way. You can't have 2-3 minutes taken up of trying to sort it out. These guys are professional and know how to do it. I'm not sure what the answer is but it can turn new people off from the game.

 The ABs game plan is much different than the days when Mehertens wore the #10.  It's all ball in hand now, and quick throws whenever possible instead of lineouts.

Aus needs to settle on a kicker.  I think they missed about 4 penalty kicks in the first half alone.

Give it a couple of days and the full game might appear on Youtube.

Basically, the game starts off at a very high pace, but it begins to drizzle later on and the handling turns to shit.

Also, FUCK Rokocoko.

Looks like ESPN3 is going to stream the NZ / Scotland match at 12:15 EST for those of us that can't get it on regular TV.

They're also going to show the Scotland SA game the following week.  ESPN must have some kind of deal with Scottish rugby.

shut up you cocksucker

The SH teams have all just gotten done playing the Tri-nations, they are in teh zone as far as International match fitness goes.

This was the NHs first internation fixture in months.
Ireland took SA to within 2 points and Wales are totally injury ridden and still managed to make it reasonably respectable against the Aussies.

Who gives a fuck about England

Anyway, arn't you a fucking Yank? And a Fair weather bandwagon jumper at that.

Even a Yank can spot the superiority of Southern Hemisphere rugby. 

The bandwagon jumper statement is unsupported.  I have suffered through the ABs self destruction in World Cups since 2003.

To be fair, all three games could have gone either way.





However, All Blacks vs. Scotland is going to be televised manslaughter.

Ahem.

That was a good day of rugby. Wales threw away an epic win.

I havent seen england play like that since 2001-3. Good timing coming into a WC year

 I think I can watch the NZ / Scotland match on ESPN3, but haven't had a chance to yet.  Hopefully today.

If you British bastards would spend more time trying to help a Yank out and find me a way to watch Wales or England I would gladly do so. 

Ever since Setanta went out of business I can't get shit for rugby on American tv.  BBC America did televise one game of the 6 Nations a week last year.  Hopefully, they will do so again.
