    Scotland have been excellent so far considering the mis-match in ability between the two sides.
    14-13 to Scotland just after the break. Im sure my relation Todd Blackadder will have fired them up at the break...he used to be inspirational for Canterbury during half-time team talks.

    oops, 13-12 to Aus...Planet Rugby made a mistake.

    Marc... I really think it's about time you took back what you dish out. You're one of the most bias people on here yet you're always accusing others of it(although rightly so in msot isntances).

    Retirements, fatigue and injuries - but the performances leading up to the World Cup were on the slide anyway from their peak.

    I think I'm actually quite fair and even to be honest.

    No actually leading up they did start to dip, but the experience drove them on.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    ahh yes, the retirements, the injuries....NZ decided to not pick 8 former key players like Mehrtens, Randell, Oliver etc before the WC & we're still managing to do ok without them.

    Now obviously that was our problem that we didn't pick them for the W.C but we haven't really gone downhill since that decision was made.

    NZ seem to have a new trial team everytime they take the field..I wish they'd get some consistency in selection. Im hoping with Henry, Hansen & Smith they'll do that.

    Let's not also forget that NZ lose about 5 or 6 players every year to English or Japanese clubs...hardly any English players leave their clubs because they get enough money to stay.

    Spencer's playing well..but eventually i'd like to see Nick Evans at 5/8 & Carter at 2nd 5/8...that would be a mean combination.
    Luke McAllister is another good 5/8 and I see he's doing really well at the Under 21 tournament.

    Maybe he just supports someone and tries hard to be fair and unbiased, but sometimes it doesnt work...

    I'm so happy when the All Blacks win, really makes me happy and lifts my spirts.

    If there is one place where you do not want to play the All Blacks is at 'The House of Pain' aka Carisbrook, and in all honsety, given NZ's record there, England may well have lost had they been full strength (ie people like Jonny and Robinson etc.).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
