    Bloody hell.

    Great run from the Senatore from the scrum and wonderful hands from Contepomi.

    Slots the conversion too.

    7-6 Argentina.

    See this post New Zealand...Cmon Lads!
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Is this a bad time to point out that Graham Henry is 0 for 2 in World Cup quarterfinals?

    Thanks Athlai.

    Impressive effort from Argentina on defence, and its certainly prohibiting the ABs from getting much quick ball. Sensational run from their number 8 although Read and McCaw both missing tackles on him was something you won't see everyday. Winning solely through penalty kicks wasn't exactly what I was contemplating.

    Close enough to the end now - so just want to say well played Aaron Cruden - looked as good as any other 1st 5 on display in the tournament.

    He must start next week regardless of Slade's availability.

    Too classy NZ, but kudos to Argentina, they fought so hard there.

    Comfortable win in the end. Pleased that Argentina competed as long as they did, I suppose.
