ABs Loss To England
The ABs lost to a rampant England in the early hours of this morning - a side that had recently lost to the Wallabies and the Springboks. The English obviously learnt a lot. It was a great game and both sides played well. The referee controlled the game well and it was a great spectacle - it is good for the game for this to have happened and good for the ABs; it is 10 years since the English last beat them at Twickenham.

Joy to the World
The Wallabies lost to France - Oh Joy - The Pumas beat the Welsh - Excellent - England beat Fiji - Yawn - the Boks from 12-3 down at halftime beat Ireland 16-12 at Lansdowne Road - Cor Blimey that is a massive fightback.

Sam Warburton Red Card Semi
OK wales lost because they did not score more points than France - Wales mised three penalties just one of these would have tipped the game in their favour.

Now onto Warburton - When the tackler need to stay on his feet to contest the ball at the breakdown - tackle area - then this aspect of the game/rules lends itself to this type of tackle.

So tackles must be made gently and one should ask the person to be tackled where they want to be placed and how adn then seek feedback to ensure that he is Ok before contesting the ball.

The problem was also that the Frenchman backed off from the impact having been given a hospital pass and he was wanting to actually catch the ball - this made the tackler have a much greater impetus and energy which was why he was rolled.

A basic for passing the ball is take the tackle and set it up if the person you are passing to is going to be in a worse position than you.

Lets all play soccer and wear women's clothing.

The French will be easy beats in the final.

Quater Final
France put together a good 40 minutes and knocked England out - Didn't see that the French had it in them based on their earlier play in this tournament.

These first two quarter final were great games as one would expect and really there wasn't that much between the teams, which is good for the game.

The Wales France game will be awesome.

It would be great to have Wales make it to the final - they are playing consistantly well enough to get there and if they do make it tot eht final they will play out fo their skins..

RWC - Main Concern
RWC my main concern as long as England don't make it to the final - and then if they do make it that they don't win - what a nightmare - if they make it that far 60,000 odd stadium goers will be bored to death regardless of the outcome.

The ABs (30) The Wallabies (14)
Don't forget it was three tries to two, and that the Wallabies missed all of their penalty kicks in the first half. If they had got them it would have changed the flavour of the game. One of the ABs tries resulted from a knock on the ref missed.

It was an exiting game and both sides attacked well, the ABs had a better defence and on attack ran straight as opposed to the Wallabies who drifted.

When the Wallabies went to the bench they stepped up when we went to the bench we stepped down. Nonu should have stayed out for the full 80.

Tough & Cool & Pink Perhaps

This is an article with a photo of me in my hoody looking tough and cool at the same. I think the photos looks good.

I hurt my knee and my Mum says I can't play in case I get tackled and hurt.

I wan't to wear a fluoro pink hoody but my mum says it should be black so I can get the ABs job.


PS : In a similar post at www.haka.co.nz my PA forgot to include the link - I would fire her - but she is my mummy.

Frogiveness and Divinity
Should the Abs win the tri nations, G Henry and Co will be on their way to salvation.

However, should the ABs win the World Cup in 2011 and also beat the French in a 1/4 or Semi then all will be frogiven.

PS: Note the spelling it is intentional.

The tears of a clown
Peter de Villiers' claims of cheating and that both the ABs tests were rigged to generate interest in the RWC 2011 are an embarrassment; he should be a player coach of a retired clown veteran’s soccer team.

Really he is a talentless hack.

ABs & Aus
That win was cool - in that it was a win.

There was a try apiece and in the end it was decided by luck (penalties).

What is it with the Abs that it takes them 20 minutes to realise that they are on the field.

It's the Lions Tour, and as ever I'm glued to the TV getting my fix of high class rugger. The tour so far has been intriguing seeing how the European players are adapting to the high veldt and the drier, harder grounds. Judging the players by the four games so far this is how I would see the first XV for the first test:

1. Gethin Jenkins. Best loose prop so far - especially as Andy Sheridan for all his size is lacking in stamina.
2. Lee Mears. Belies his lack of size with effective running and mostly accurate lineout throwing.
3. Euan Murray. A problem position this. Murray has hardly set the world alight, but Phil Vickery has largely been anonymous
4. Alun Wyn Jones. Just shades it above Nathan Hines, especially as the no.5 position is taken up by the Captain
5. Paul O'Connell. I haven't been entirely too impressed with O'Connell until tonight against the Sharks. Personally prefer O'Driscoll as Captain
6. Tom Croft. Industrious and seriously quick. Can cover the second row in a pinch as well.
7. David Wallace. Only just ahead of Martyn Williams at the moment. If Williams plays on Saturday and plays his usual effective fetching role, then I believe that he will be a good foil with Tom Croft.
8. Jamie Heaslip. Way, way, better than Andy Powell. No where near as one dimensional.
9. Mike Phillips. Physical and a real handful. Just needs to be a bit quicker at getting the ball away at the breakdown.
10. Stephen Jones. I like Hook, but his lack of experience tells against him and O'Gara is too weak defensively.
11. Ugo Monye. Probably the only person who could keep up with Brian Habana. Hasn't done anything wrong either.
12. Jamie Roberts. Powerful, punching holes in defences and more importantly has good understanding with both Jones and O'Driscoll.
13. Brian O'Driscoll. I'd have to have a lobotomy to even consider any one else here.
14. Tommy Bowe. Looks like he's as dumb as bricks, but he's a heck of a winger.
15. Lee Byrne. Excellent thus far, hell of a boot, and runs well and direct.

Subs: Lee Fitzgerald, Harry Ellis, Rob Kearney, Martyn Williams, Nathan Hines, Matthew Rees (but really needs to improve his lineout throwing), Adam Jones.

With any luck, this lot will give the Springboks a heck of a game!

Low lie the Fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly.
Our love was on the wing
we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

Rugby Quiz show!
BBC Wales have started "High Tackle", a cross between Never mind the Buzzcocks and of Question of Sport, but just about rugby.

You can watch it online here:


Hopefully if enough people watch it they'll expand it to the rest of the country (bear in mind it's the first episode of the first series, it'll get better as it goes on).
