    I think ABs by about 15 points actually. I think our forwards will be too good and starve Aussie of possession

    I'm thinking it'll be more like last year's Test in Brisbane. I'm expecting the Wallabies to defend well.

    Hopefully the Aussies can put up a decent fight however you feel it will have to be through the backs as I expect Haymen & Woodcock may just destroy the Aussie front row.

    Is the MCG in New Zealand now? cos the All Blacks seem to be getting the most crowd support.

    Haha yeah. When Mortlock (?) went to take a penalty shot at goal the crowd booed and when it missed they cheered.

    Scrums have been a bit of a mess so far. Ref's let the front rows know what he wants & they keep trying to jump the engage command.

    & when did booing the kicker become acceptable? Poor show all round for mine.

    Generally don't like booing unless it's at a bad decision/foul. Am all for applauding good play and booing bad play, regardless of who's playing. But booing the opposing team at everything from running onto the ground to scoring pisses me off. Lack of respect and sportsmanship all round.

    Meh, NZ fans will do it when we play there, and any other sports.

    Yeah booing pretty common these days, basically the home fans do it all the time when the away kicker is going for goal.

    Been a pretty scrappy game all round really Carter looks a bit off colour again and the New Zealand defence managing slow down the Aussie although by giving penalties which Mortlock hasn't been able to take advantage of.

    It's a relatively recent phenomenon actually. Before there was always a respectful quiet when a kicker lined up a shot at goal. Except for the French, but they're French anyway. I just thought the hush showed a bit of mutual respect. Seems that's gone now.

    Anyway, Oz have held their own on the possession front but the ABs have made better use of it. The free-kick they gave at the scrum that lead to Gear's try was just daft; if you're on your own 22 make sure you get the basics right.
