    Rugby : New Zealand All Blacks vs England

    big game tonight people.. the two big superpowers of rugby union meet at carisbrook dunedin.. i reckon its going to be one hell of an awesome game.. although i think our all blacks will take out this one seeing the depth we have from the super 12 and the trial games..

    Im betting on all blacks to win.. whats y'all opinions?

    NZ to win, we're several players light owing to the heavy schedule they've had.

    NZ for sure, England don't have Jonny and a couple of other players.
    Intersting you say the 2 big powers of rugby union, I would have thought it was 2 of the 3 big powers in RU. After all we did beat you in the WC and Eng don't have Jonny for the moment.

    10-3 NZ already - sounds ominous for the English from here.

    Can't even win with good grace - but then again, Nibblet did just protest that people ought to be able to 'trade insults' on Cricket Web.

    Perhaps last year's World Cup still stings a bit.

    I think today's probably a good day to be an Englishman who doesn't like rugby union. I just hope it doesn't turn out to be a good day to be one who doesn't like cricket.

    dam. harsh spiteful comments there luckyeddie. i had to take a quiet walk outside to cool off.

    anyhow, NZ were way too good, 36-3. England were back at their worst, which personally I like to see.

    Not even a rugby fan, but this made me chuckle...

    Damn, looks like 10 years of losing to the USA and Namibia fellas

    England have been in decline for the best part of 12 months and unless you'd noticed, there's a few changes owing to injury and fatigue since we won the World Cup (which incidentally NZ didn't even make the final of)

    I predicted an NZ win before the game because of these factors, and I was right.

    And from what I heard, we weren't "back at worst", just beaten by the better side - I mean it wasn't even a record result...
