    If SBW plays for the All Blacks it'll be when their in the third tier of competition playing against teams like spain and russia and antartica...that is to say never.

    Good hit though (though illegal) and nice offload to set up the try.

    Needs to learn some rules and stop talking like he's Anthony Mundine.

    Anthony Mundine is a **** fullstop. It will be a great day in Australian sport when somebody knocks the **** out.

    Surprised there hasn't been any talk about the All Blacks game tonight.

    How do you guys think we'll go?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    That was nothing to brag about, but at least it didn't kill the Olympic mood!

    Oh, I dunno - I reckon keeping South Africa to 0 at home is worth bragging about.

    There was a heap of guts in that performance, our defence was absolutely outstanding for one. That win means more than the Auckland result I reckon. As Voltman said, to keep SA scoreless was just incredible.

    Has Carter ever missed 4 kicks in a match before?

    Good result for the All Blacks, though it was a closer game than the 19-0 scoreline suggests. South Africa weren't able to capatalise on their opportunities and made far too many basic mistakes. McCaw was absolutely immense, and Jimmy Cowan played well so I'm happy.

    Haven't commented on the game yet as have had the VCR in overdrive over the last few days with everything on.

    Thought that keeping SA scoreline is MASSIVE and the ABs deserve full credit for their efforts and if Carter had actually managed to kick a few penalty goals, we would've been well ahead. South Africa were unlucky on a few occasions though, with Habana's try that was disallowed and quite rightly so (not sure why it was referred though) and Monty replicating Carter's kicking, along with a number of sustained periods of attack. The All Black's defense needs full recognition for negating those periods of attack and turning the ball over at crucial times. Nice to see Toeava get 50 minutes, was very solid as was Kahui, so with two non-specialist wingers we didn't see to have too many issues. McCaw brilliant as usual, and almost referreed the game at times (wonder if anyone else knew that new ELV rule from drop outs because I had no idea).

    I was disappointed for South Africa and especially their fans. I post at quite a few rugby sites and the South African fans are always very modest about their teams accomplishments - so much so that I wanted them to win the Tri Nations. But they wont now...

    This weekend will be mighty interesting. South Africa played well below what they're capable of again New Zealand, but Australia suck playing away from home... so... it's difficult to pick.

    South Africa vs Australia about to get underway now. I'd give the Wallabies half a chance of breaking their terrible run of losses away from home in the Tri Nations to be honest, with South Africa missing Smit, Bakkies Botha and Habana, and coming off last week's 19 point loss. Hoping for an Australian victory actually which is a little unusual.

    10-0 to Australia at half time, so my prediction doesn't seem too ridiculous at the moment. Pretty inaccurate effort from South Africa though, its hard to believe they're the same side who were so impressive and effective at the World Cup less than 12 months ago. They've now gone more than two hours of Tri Nations rugby without a single point...
