    Would have liked to see Nikki Walker get a run on the wing today.

    Portugal don't really look as bad as I thought they'd do.

    Especially against Scotland who are meant to be good, not that they've played that badly either.

    A win's a win. Bit loose at times, but dominated for the most part. Portugal looked good going forwards.

    I think the All Blacks relished playing daytime rugby. It suits their style of play. I thought Ali Williams had a very good game would have been my man of the match actually. French media were going ga-ga over the All Blacks after this match.

    Yeah, the words Henry used were something like "We will treat the situation with some sensitivity" which made me laugh. Always enjoy watching these smaller nations play and play well, so I hope they put in a good performance.

    I just hope they actually play their top team

    for no other reason than, id hate to think some players were being told they could not play.
    if i was in the Portugal team, my sole reason for being at the WC would be to play the All Blacks, not Romania

    They won't though, maybe before you play thats what you'd like but once your a hundred points behind you'll be getting a little tired of the game. All the best players will get a run probably but they just won't start.

    Ha as if Tana Umaga is capable of showing sensitivity, I haven't forgiven you lot for what you did to BOD.

    Tana Umaga isn't playing for the All Blacks anymore, how is that relevant? That game was also against a very high quality of opposition, not a team who have just qualified for their first ever World Cup. The BOD tackle/cleanout was an accident, these things happen. We had to put up with the **** moaning about it for such a long time that in the end nobody cared.

    Ha was it **** an accident. Quite clearly deliberate, you don't do that by accident.

    Have you played rugby before? I've seen plenty of those sorta things that happen by accident.

    Did you actually see the 'tackle'?

    I've played rugby for 6 years FYI, and I accept that spear tackles happen by accident, but there is no way on earth that that was an accident, no way.
