    Edit - I take that back ABs would be foolish to put too much energy into it. Instead of the game.
    should just go with the traditional 'ka mate ka mate ka ora ka ora' haka. (even though i prefer the other one)

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

    Going to chuck a deckchair up on the roof to get a good view of the rioting and pillaging if we lose.

    In 1999 after we lost - I was in Canada and talking to a Kiwi he said "I just feel like breaking something anything" And I felt the same way. Somewhere there will be trouble tonight (if the unthinkable happens)

    I think the difference between 1999 and tonight, is that in 1999 a loss was almost unthinkable and so the disappointment was because the loss was so unexpected. Basically no one picked the French to win but they played brilliantly, particularly after halftime. I think a better comparison is to 2007 where although France again went into the match with little chance of winning, the ABs loss was more a result of their own shortcomings. In terms of the way the match played out, there were a number of similarities to the SA vs Australia match last weekend. Just looking at the way the bets have fallen for tonight's game, it would appear as though theres some advocates for an Australian victory, but I think the main contributing factor as to who wins, as in 2007, will be how the ABs handle the pressure.

    I see your question now

    An outcome that we do not want to consider - not an outcome that is impossible as aussie are a good chance with or without Beale.

    Good luck to your team!

    Joubert has decided to keep a close eye on Pocock, obviously.

    Pleased, tbh, because he did get away with murder versus the Saffers.

    Think we can be thankful we're only 5 points behind after that start.

    Joubert having a blinder so far. Oz collapse the scrum under pressure (standard MO) and, lo and behold, are pinged.

    Weepu's kicking not the best today tho.
