    As far as I can tell that is the major advatnage of being at home in rugby games.

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

    Been a sterling defensive effort from les bleus, but it's really been Weepu's kicking that's kept them in it. 13-0 has a much better look to it.

    Firstly, sensational reaction from the French to the haka - not sure if they're permitted to do that given the IRB wants both sides behind their 10 metre lines but I'm not complaining if they breached an IRB ruling.

    Relying on Stephen Donald to see out 45 minutes in a World Cup final with a five point lead...didn't see that coming. Such a woeful run of injuries to our flyhalves that its become farcical.

    Also wouldn't have anticipated Tony Woodcock being the only pointscorer at halftime, although really Weepu should've been able to extend the lead with some relatively comfortable penalty attempts.

    All in all, think France are playing well and frustrating the ABs with their solid defence. Save for a lapse in concentration when Woodcock found a huge hole in their line-out, and its been pretty even.

    Nervous as hell with a tiny five point lead. Anything could happen from here.

    Stating the obvious but we need to kick better. Not just goalkicking either - some of the field kicks towards the end of the second half were ugly.

    Must score first in second half.

    disappointing 1st half.
    both teams were ordinary...
    weepu , as I inticipated, is having a nightmare...

    it's been a mistakes galore imo.
    we need to score tries if we are to win (actually france don't look like getting any points so we just gotta keep it tight)

    ref's been a bit lenient to us...

    Director conveniently not showing the high tackle again. Must have been a nailed-on penalty then.

    Surprised to see no highlights (on the feed I'm watching anyway) of France penalty miss and Donald penalty - both were very close to upright.

    Well then.

    That 40 point flogging seems a long time ago now.

    Yeah the Donald one looked very close. I thought he'd missed it.
