    Bloody hell.

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

    Slots the conversion too.

    7-6 Argentina.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    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.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    What is Athlai's obsession with crappy first fives? First Donald now Slade.
