    I was at the city ground watching Notts Forest get lucky a win against the mighty Hartlepool Utd when suddenly chants of ENGERLAND, ENGERLAND & there was even rendition of sweet chariots when news had spread that England had beaten the Aussies. A pretty cool moment to be honest.

    Haha that England beat Australia and 13-13 apiece at this stage after McAlister acted like a pea-brain sized bogan in getting sin binned and giving away 10 points.

    Oh dear a mile forward that pass. The blacks have really had the rough end from some shocking officiating. A forward pass for the 2nd French try & a terrible decision on the Sin Binning for the 1st.

    This is the most heart breaking of them all.

    All Blacks = England football team. All talk and nothing much else.

    They go out in the knock out stages partly as a result of some dodgy refereeing aswell.

    They were just crap, nothing much else. Refereeing evened itself out, as it usually does.

    Some players need to actually work on playing rugby rather than marketing underwear, etc..... Good to hear a lot of these All Blacks are leaving to France & England now

    Oh. My. God! What a day of rugby! I can't believe the All Blacks are out! I was so torn about wanting France and New Zealand to win! Bad decisions made by the ref and key players injured. I just know the papers are going to rip them apart tomorrow. It's not like the All Blacks are human or anything. Fiji and Argentina to win tomorrow will really make my weekend!

    I'm not even going to ask whether that was aimed at Dan Carter. He had a bad game.. He wasn't helped by the calf injury he picked up. Drives me crazy that when he's playing the awesome rugby we all know he can play, people can't say enough about him. Then, when he isn't playing his best, they critise the hell out of him. He is only human.. sometimes

    You can bet your life savings that McCaw will go as captain and the coaching staff will go too and so they should.

    It's our worst ever World Cup which says a lot about the state NZ Rugby is in I guess.

    Don't know bout the underwear thing (don't really want to tbh ). I thought the pass for the 2nd try was a mile forward & the sin bin was a joke. I got the feeling that the All Blacks also got the rough end of the general decisions a couple of free kicks at the scrums that France got, when the ref didn't know what was going on, immediately spring to mind.

    How the heck do they deserved to get sacked? They are still the best team in the world, thanks partly to the coaching staff. The players are only half the team. I think NZ Rugby is in a good state at present. Yeah, we are out but it doesn't mean that NZ Rugby is going to die.
