    Tri-Nations: Australia v South Africa

    Here's a funny joke I read. And it was actually from an Australian newspaper after last weeks loss to NZ:

    " The Wallabies practice was delayed nearly two hours today after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the field. Australian coach Eddie Jones immediately suspended practice while police and federal investigators were called in.
    After a complete analysis, forensic experts determined that the white substance unknown to the players was the tryline. Practice was resumed after the special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again"

    Yeah, I must admit I laughed at that in the Telegraph on Wednesday (Possibly the only goo thing ever published in that paper?)

    Anyway, this thread is on the tri-nations, not the Daily Telegraph.

    For tonight's match, I'm going to take Australia - simply out of nessecity.

    Well they did win at last.

    By the way, are things that bad for a kicker that they have to use the bloke who created Riverdance?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    well i can tell you what. the bloke who created riverdance didn't miss 1 shot all night. as well as that he's one of the best players in the world. who knows, maybe it's his fancy footwork?

    South Africa were disgraceful & Australia still didn't look convincing.

    I'd love to see the AB's put 70 points on the Springboks and then see how Rudolf Streuli reacts to it.

    He would have to be the most ******** coach in rugby at the moment.
