    Yeah I was never fussed about the Nonu incident and I don't think McKenzie is either. He just included it to strengthen his case through weight of numbers of examples.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    That was one of the best Shield games I've seen in a long time. Awesome to see it going to teams and fans that really care about it, too - the crowd at Hamilton when Waikato lost it was pathetic. Dunedin put them to shame, and I expect the same from Napier.

    This could be interesting.

    The Beast and the du Plessies bros should utterly marmalise the Wobblies' front three, but what affect will the new scrum laws have?

    "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."

    Totally, the best game of rugby I've seen in a long time.

    Tonight's Boks/Wallabies game is great as well, really enjoyed that first half. Hopefully the Boks can go on with it.

    Boks far too good and, if anything, more impressive than the ABs against us

    Having said that, the ref's interpretation of the off-side law did us no favours as they were transgressing all night and should have been penalized out of the game

    Certainly was, should be one cracker of a match at Eden Park if the weather holds.

    Personally I think it would be one match too far for the Boks and they'll lose by 10, but with McCaw out who knows .

    Anyone fancy the Pumas over the Wallabies next weekend?

    I think the Aussies will go undefeated against Argentina for the next 2 or 3 years. Basically because they will take them the most seriously because they have the most chance of losing. I think NZ or SA will go down to them in Argentina for their first victory.

    I also make this comment because Australia are ruthless at polishing off lower ranked teams.

    I am 100% confident the Pumas will boss the Aussie scrum like they did to us. Hansen claimed it was a draw last night. But not really we won the second half scrummaging on points - but got monstered early in the game.

    I also think the Pumas will win more line out ball with out that gawd awful hooker they had who thankfully dislocated his shoulder. Look for the Aussies to win by less than ten points. But still win.

    anyone see the shute shield final today? the dominance uni has over the rest of the comp is becoming a farce, how the **** can one team have 1 player contracted to a super rugby club and the other have contracted players coming off the bench?

    Wow, what a match that was. Just superb physical confrontations from both teams.

    Barrett really stood up as well as did Cane. Really showed the depth of NZ Rugby there.

    Lost interest when it became 15 men against 14.

    Don't think that decided the match though, even the Springbox coach and captain admitted they were below par last night.

    All Blacks proved they can't be beaten by trying to go over the top of them.

    The All Blacks are still easily a step above them, and years ahead of Australia who seem to have gone massively backwards since McKenzie took over. They deserved to lose last night.

    The home nations will be licking their lips against playing Australia on the end of year tour. I can't see them beating any of England, Ireland, Wales.

    The All Blacks won the game and I guess that is the main thing that matters regardless of how many men the opposition have and to your point for the last 5 minutes SA had a man advantage so I can see where you are coming from.
