    Start times are of great interest to me - as I posted earlier kicking may be more important if handling becomes difficult.

    Now I'm kind of hoping that we somehow lose to France so that our quarter-final and the semi-final are not on sunday nights at 9 pm like the final!!


    so basically if we win against france not only will we probably be playing stronger teams in the knockouts, the games will also be on sunday nights!!!

    nah **** sunday night knockout games. worst scheduling ever.

    As does the Wallabies'. When did they last win there? Must be more than 20 years ago.

    They've won 4/24 at Eden Park and not won since 1986: http://stats.espnscrum.com/statsguru...eam;view=match

    For the statistically inclined, they've won the last 23 matches they've played at Eden Park and not lost there since 1994: Rugby Union - ESPN Scrum - Statsguru - Test matches - Team records

    Yeah, it is a pretty good record, although I'm not sure how much that means when it comes to WC knock-out games. That said, even our loss in 1994 was due to sensational play by France who won with that "try from the end of the earth". It was beautiful, beautiful rugby and everyone in the ground stood up to applaud it.

    If we lose to something like that, again, I don't think I'd have any complaints.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in the venue. I remember about 10 years ago before a game at Carisbrook, the media couldn't stop talking about how Australia hadn't beaten New Zealand there since the 1970's. Australia won easily.

    I think the Eden park record is more down to a bit of good luck with the scheduling (New Zealand often playing the weaker of their tri-nations rivals at Eden) than the ground itself offering a significant advantage. Still, if it gives the players confidence, that can't be a bad thing.
