    That second game was alright, plus the score was probably closer than it should've been. As for the Aussie game, I thought they might be a threat due to their trouncing of the French last week, but now not so much. Only saw like 20 mins, but they kept dropping the ball - as long as we shut down Folau we'll be right.

    That first half was certainly interesting, some great rugby. Did anybody see the head to head odds prior to the game at the TAB?

    Hasn't been much of a week for English sports fans

    Head to head at the TAB was 1.20 NZ 4.00 England.

    Their cricket team is doing quite well against SL so they can smile a little
    Something I picked up somewhere:

    The England team visited an orphanage in Brasil today. "It's heartbreaking to see their sad little faces with no hope" said Jose, aged 6.

    Bye bye Blues.

    Poor commentators, some of them really struggle to say anything positive about the Crusaders.

    Hopefully Slade's ok, that was a big hit!

    Fingers crossed a NZ team can take it out

    Wasn't much positive to say about them (or the Blues) in the second half.

    Hope the Blues beat the chiefs now

    And the BRUMBIES beat the Force by more than seven and don't let the Force score 4 tries (ie no bonus points for the Force) ....or vice versa

    Know what happens then? Yippee

    Any predictions for Saturday Crusaders v Warratahs?

    TAB would have us believe Warratahs are the favourites.

    Make sense, however, the Red & Blacks put on a very good display last week, hope they can go all the way this year

    I know, I know, "our" outfit looked promising, better than last year, but not consisitent, but I can justify it by considering it NZ v Aus, and therefore I back NZ

    Bugger aye. It was a good game to watch regardless. I used live betting at the TAB and got a safety bet on the Warratahs at $2.20. Interestly though the Crusaders were paying $2.50 or something later on when they were still very much in the game... meaning you could've put a dollar each way and either way been a winner. Does anyone know if the TAB let you bet on each team on live betting like that?

    Oh well, hopefully we can beat the Aussies in the Bledisloe. How are the Aussies playing ATM anyone know?

    Was very nerve racking, between watching that and the Silver ferns against England, it is a wonder I have any nails left.

    Hopefully we can beat them in the Bledisloe, they are improving but by how much not sure.

    Well done All Blacks! That was a brilliant game to watch, some great running! Shame it wasn't the case the week before.

    So much for the theory of the All Black's having lost their touch

    Yes, a brilliant game and a great win!

    Incidentally, although the consecutive win record has gone no-one has mentioned the prospect of an unbeaten run in tests -whatever that is these days?
