    Might help even it all up a bit. The best team losing a major player gives the others a better chance. Still think they will win though.

    Worst position for us to lose a player. The backup at first-five is atrocious. Colin Slade leading us to a World Cup win? I can't see it. Weepu will end up getting a lot of minutes at 10.

    Well it would have to be SA to beat you then as nobody in the other half will should you reach the final and the way the Aussies are playing they would get beaten anyway.

    ugh
    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.

    I guess we should call up somebody in injury cover.

    No mate, unfortunately not.

    And I say that as an Australian.

    At WCs in any sport, you want to see the best players in action from every country, IMO. He is certainly one of them.

    I'm not the biggest rugby fan going, personally because over here it's mostly played by private school Nancy Boys born with a silver spoon up their arses, unlike in countries like NZ. But from what little I know, I don't think the ABs can win it without him.

    Thoughts of others on that?

    Mate, I like you, but every second post you're making has this silver spoon remark in it. Frankly it's bull****. If someone was to post about NRL players being wife-beating pill popping lowest common denominator with no career prospects after football and an IQ equivalent to the number on their back you'd prob call me out on it as well.

    Do agree that is a tragedy to see Carter out as you do want the best players playing for every team. Wish him a speedy recovery and best wishes to the NZ economy

    Fair call. Better player than Cruden, I think it's reasonable to say.
