 :'(  Ok .. what can I say... my sharks got "munched" but hey I will support them through thick and thin!  Just glad SA is doing so well in the WC.  I watched the game against England at Peddlars and boy was it festive.... there was one lone POM walking around mouthing it off... but he was silenced very quickly!!

Wow . . . the bokke nealy made this new Canadian poop in my pants . . . geez 30-25 against Tonga is almost as bad as a loss.

Still rooting for the lads, after 12 years away!!

Say no more Keith  :-[ - but a big wake-up call - according to the papers today they are fielding a much stronger side to play the USA -warm - up for the quarters and semis!

Thanks Oppie,

And my best wishes to you, Debby, Brad and Meghan . . . (hope I got the kid's name right . . . I'm going senile, boet!!)

Go the Bokke . . . they should wipe out the USA, because even Canada gives them a slugging!!

Looking forward to seeing the Bokke in the semis . . .

Keith.

Two teams I do not like played today - Australia v England and we all know who won.

Serves Australia right for thinking of the semis before finishing the quarters.  :D

Concrats to England you out played Australia in the loose and scrums and it prooves to be in a difficult pool play off.
I wonder was England really k#k against SA or were wee too good? Yes we were too good!

The All Blacks next week are a different ball game or did they also have a easy pool?

Maybe SA v England final?

"Did they also have an easy pool?" as I quoted above.

French 20 v NZ18. What can I say, but well done to the French!  :o The runners-up have turned the Word Cup upside down. No more South V South final!  :-\

I hope the Bokke take notice and play each game as a final and stick to the game plan. This is a wake-up call!

What happened to the All Blacks? Chokers? Where was their normal game plan?  ??? Play rugby not ping pong!

Looks like the French coach took some tips from the Tri-nations, using bokke game plan - defend like shit and when the opportunity comes attack? French 124 tackles to All Black 36 tackles!

Bokke rattled the All Blacks like this in some games - All Blacks go to pieces if their plan does not work, cannot operate under pressure.  ;D

Who are the All Blacks going to blame now?  :'(
In 1995 they blame food poisoning - look at the sports section in todays Sunday Times and read the article "In NZ, All Blacks are all-mighty" - in the article it mentions -quote - that they might blame the French for purposely choosing the Dark Blue jersey to take away some mythical power inherent to the All Black's black jersey - a sort of polyester kryptonite? The NZ media seems to think so.. - unquote.

When will the All Blacks learn?
You can be the best in the world, walk over all teams, have number 1 ranking at the World Cup, have  impressive try scoring records against mino teams (Ausralia the same), but if you do not have the Web Ellis cup all this does not count!
Too much hype  - no play! Rather be an under dog!

I do not want to be a All Black going home today - will have to creap into the land of the long white cloud, via the back door.  ;D
May be in 2011 (World Cup in New Zealand) the All Blacks will win because it seems they can only play under pressure at home - 1987 -20 years ago their last win was in New Zealand.

Enough of the slay ting - getting as bad as the Australian and English teams.  :D

Bokke play hard - watch out for mino teams - Argentina th Dark Horse!

Go Bokke!
