    38-0 after 20 minutes. Jesus. Can't decide if NZ are that good or Italy are that bad.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Stanojevic's parents run a hotel in Warwick apparently.

    NZ very impressive the first 20 mins before Italy started to actually play. Great intercept try though by Stanjoevic tbh.

    New Zealand too strong for Italy. Our World Cup will start next Tuesday against Romania.

    No. Perhaps not in terms of competitiveness, but yesterday was a mess. So many errors, so much fussing about. So hard to watch union when it's like that. Both sides were far easier on the eye today, and I really enjoyed the second half.

    Spoken like a league fan.

    Today was just basketball Rugby with NZ in the Harlem Globetrotters role. They were clinical, but Italy were woeful for long stretches. Far more to enjoy in yesterday's game; Los Pumas came with a definite game plan (to keep it tight & pepper Haymans with as many garryowens as possible) & executed it pretty damn well.

    It was difficult to gauge anything from the All Blacks' performance since there was barely any structure to the game. Italy didn't give them a match. There were a few positives, however, particularly Carter's kicking game and Leon McDonald having his best Test in quite some time.

    I agree that it was easier to watch than the opener, though. France were awful & Argentina's game plan was ugly. Love those Mighty Pumas though.

    Graham Henry has pretty much said the All Blacks will go soft on Portugal.

    Yeah right way to go about it. Smashing them into the dust isn't going to do Portugal any good as far as their Rugby is concerned. Romania are different basically because they have a much longer history of rugby and their fans aren't going to be turned off rugby by getting beaten by 100 points.

    Nah. Been hearing it from all angles. Got faith, though.
