    Pretty sure he was making most of that judgement based on one result, certainly he was using the victory as some sort of way to strengthen his argument which didn't sit well with me because of how weak the French were.

    They were a late addition to the poll.

    Although I expect (and hope fervently) that ABs will win it, am a bit disappointed by the performance last night against Canada.

    Would have thought ABs should easily have topped 100 plus... The first half was poor and the intercept pass that gifted the Canadian Try shows ...the ABs are vulnerable...if they did something silly like that in a World Cup Semi against (say France, South Africa, Australia or Ireland/Wales) it will be goodnight ,Nurse...and try again next time once again... I am not sure the ABs have peaked yet....in fact after the last three games, if anything they are far from their peak .....and quite possibly lacking considerable fine tuning, which SA seem to have since their players all played the Super 14....just my opinion, thats all.

    Just as puzzling as "other" having received 5 votes....

    5 voters in this forum believe Romania, Portugal, Argies or even Canada or USA/Japan would win the World Cup....

    As I explained earlier, South Africa were late additions to the poll. Taking that into consideation, I'd say most of the votes for "Other" were actually intended for South Africa, I know that was certainly the case for me,

    This is exactly what our pool games will be like, hence why I don't like an easy pool. Nobody should ever score 100 points in a Test, though.

    I doubt very much that an intercept try would hurt this team in the World Cup. They've been down on the board a number of times in the Henry era and clawed their way back into it.

    i look at 3 things at last night game.
    1. Canada defended with everything they had, and i think they should get alot of credit. They play like that at the world cup - i wouldnt be suprised if Wales get a scare from them.
    2. Bring back, Hayman, Mealamu, Woodcock, McCaw, Soiallo, Rockococo, Toeava for a start.
    3. I think the game plan early on would to have been to try things, when they didnt work, i think we saw a change in the plan for the 2nd half.

    Watching the tri nations game early in the morning, i dont think we ahve much to worry about

    an intercept certainly didnt hurt in 03

    Saffies to win. form simply. dont know how theyll beat the blacks but they will. aus, if another larkham or mortlock style miracle happens in the quarters/ semi. also like wales....only the second XV played in aus
