Not very often i fall asleep watching the All Blacks but that was one of them.......dont think there was a single line break and i dont think the ref helped the game flow much.......shame the Ab's didnt take that record.
so have the aussies improved or the All Blacks gone down a bit?.......I know its early season but id say the later.......they looked flat to me....didnt have that fire about them i am used too.
Maybe its early season or maybe because most of these players got their arses kicked in super rugby.....Only one player stood out for me out of both teams......the aussie capt.....he was hungry and had belief......The Ab's missed conrad too and no forward domination either.........theyd better wake up by saturday! or it could end inCry......but home advantage should lift them some.
         The one thing that pisses me off.....is when the ball has gone into the scrum has been won  by someone to the back.....the scrum then collapses and the ref blows it up and all the fuss bull**** of setting another scrum takes place.....wtf doesnt the ref just call use it or lose it and get the ball out and carry on.......the scrum has already collapsed ...cant get any worse.....get the ball out...players stand up quicker because the ball is free......if they here the whistle they take their time getting up.....there was a lot of that in that game....too many reset scrums and too long prepping for scrum....with no "Hit" the scrum is bloody boring......since when did players get injured on the hit anyway?.......its a pussy scrum engagement now.

Will Cruden be dropped for good now by the ABs management?
After all,he did miss a penalty that cost the ABs the world record title.
Happened to Beaver in 2010 in HK when he misplaced a clearing kick.
Hansen was on the management team then too.
Peace.Via superior firepower..

Great lift up by the Ab's..........exactly what was needed after last weeks effort.......
another winger who cant fend "Folau" .......can go along with "North" of wales........if the big paw came out....a try would have been  scored.

A true test match, and a very good South African side to beat the AB's
Also good to see the Pumas finally get their 1st win

What a game that was......brilliant escape from the All Blacks but i nearly felt sorry for the aussies........I thought they dominated most of that game.

Yep aussie dominated but they also lay all over the ball and played with it on the ground and got away with it time and time again while the ABs got penalised time after time.. I actually gave up and went to bed after aussie last penalty only to get up to the ABs winning, really against the run of play. Far too many AB errors, knock ons, missed passes etc

The All Blacks managed to up their tempo and play fast rugby at the end and yet still remain composed on the ball......That is what sets them apart from northern hemisphere teams......eg Wales.......when Wales  are playing catch up rugby they try to play fast/urgent but they look like they are panicking(which they are) and then come the inevitable errors.

Simply will and skill - the AB's have tickers as big as Pharlap and the skill to back it all up.

The only reason they lost in SA is because 'someone' lead with the shoulder, the Boks didn't win it, we lost it.

Richie is a living legend, regardless of what happens from here on in.
Aye-Aye cloth eyes.

AB's can't play their game if they don't have the ball. Both games had a distinct and not missed lack of kicking from Aus & SA.

That being said, just gives Richie more opportunities to be awesome at what he does.
A man’s comfort in life can be measured by the quality of the toilet paper he uses to wipe his arse.

watched steve hansens press conference on his squad to go on the spring tour......he gave out a bit of a hint that mcaw will retire after the world cup.........would be a great way to go if they can win the world cup again......Ritchie will be able to pull off something that no other skip has ever done...have heard plenty of people bashing SBW  but i agree hes a hard man to stop and will create chances for others ....plus the poms have some tall timber........i think he will be a handful for Wales....Thats for sure.
