WHAT A MIGHTY PERFORMANCE!!!
HAIL THE ALL BLACKS !!
Fair to say Coach Henry is a tough interview.
Wonderful AB performance - sensational start, good composure and a clinical effort all round. I think Jane was MOTM but the way we dominated the breakdown, in particular negating to our best ability Pocock, as well as better tactics, were the key differences. Cruden brilliant all things considered and compared to Cooper who was woeful yet again, he looked a class above.

Well played All Blacks, totally outplayed us.
Our scrum was rubbish and our backs just couldn't do much due to the excellent defense. The only thing we really got right was our lineout.
Don't care about the third place play-off, not sure why they even have it.
**** me Jane has a broad accent. Most Kiwi man alive.

Edit - just heard the interview - that isn't a "Kiwi accent" it is an Upper Hutt accent. People joke about Upper Hutt English at my workplace. Still maintain that the Sth Island is more classically New Zealand. When I was growing up I used to be able to pick where you were from - based on your accent. Can't do it anymore as I was overseas for sometime.

Just one other point based on the match tonight, I'd be shocked if Joubert isn't the referee for the final. Since the 2007 WC I'd say hes been the best official in the world and comfortably overtaken the likes of Kaplan and Rolland who seemed to be the most highly rated referees about four years ago. The only reason I can see for Rolland getting the gig is his ability to speak french, which I guess comes into the referee appointment but shouldn't be the dominant factor.
Never been prouder of the All Blacks in all my life. Even '87 and the series victory in '96 doesn't compare to how I feel.
