    All Blacks looked incredibly average however I'm excited about our young 17 yr old skier Alice Robinson winning her first world cup race in Austria, that's a huge achievement.

    Compare and contrast how quickly she tried to insert herself into the win against Ireland last week - https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/...oodhues-mullet

    "After the All Blacks' 46-14 thrashing of Ireland in the quarterfinal, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern weighed in on mullet-gate, throwing her support behind the contentious hairstyle. "And that's a brilliant win ... for the All Blacks and mullets everywhere," she wrote on Instagram with a photo of Goodhue after the game."

    Mulling what to write and say after her highly tax-payer paid PR team have mulled the implications through - that's our grubby political-anything-for-votes Jacinda.

    So gutted for them that they cannot join sweet Jacinda to bask in the glory of the ABs winning their third RWC in succession.

    Well, that was their plans anyway - the hijab wearing one had her flight booked.

    Sums it up. Better team (by a country mile) won.

    All Blacks were an embarrassment, even Aaron Smith thinks so https://www.msn.com/en-nz/sport/rugb...cid=spartandhp

    England at $3.25 for my dollar. No loyalty when it comes to betting!

    And I am excited that basketball now has more players in schools than rugby. It is a great game.

    Yeah right. Only up 25 cents having lost my dollar on Ireland and South Africa. The writing has been on the wall from early in the season.
    But you often jump.

    Not a great spectator sport though.

    No just mean that its a bit on the nose in gambling circles to crow about wins after you have them. Its better to place your bets before the game starts in the interests of transparency. I could have gotten England at $4.00 but that was on Betfair.com which always offers better prices than the NZ Tab who are rip off merchants.

    Hansen,Gatland and Schmidt all the end of their tenure

    None of their teams made the RWC final

    Seems to suggest something

    Soccer has the most youngsters in NZ playing but until there's a proper set up and structure in place to popularize and commercialize the sport, rugby will tend to always reign supreme.

    Likewise, basket ball.

    $6.20 for Wales to win against the ABs - almost worth a punt.

    $2.50 for the Boks to win may be a better bet though.
