....Phenomenal drop goal by Carter .....

Being proud Boks supporter I'm quite enjoying the fact that the difference in points in semis wasn't so huge by a large margin compared to today's final against Wallabies.
The Boks played better in the quarter than the Aussies in the final.

The Blacks played better in the final than in the quarter. LOVED that final try! The grin on his face..... on all the Blacks faces...

Carter was gooood and changed the direction of the game. *deep sigh*

The Aussies had some very painful looking injuries to good players. Poor buggers.

That Sin Bin episode was full deserved and embarrassing. I guess the adrenaline of the play got the better of him.



Once you go Black, you never go back

Great Southern Men on all teams. Are there any Argentinians here? I think that they were around as well

Kia Kaha.

Here's hoping for some sensible female executives at the respective airlines

Qantas and Air New Zealand in rugby World Cup final wager


The initial suggested wager involved repainting the entire fleet.

The national airlines of Australia and New Zealand have agreed a wager on the outcome of the Rugby World Cup final.
Air New Zealand and Qantas shook on the agreement following a humorous exchange on Twitter ahead of Saturday's game.
Qantas crew will have to wear New Zealand rugby jerseys on Monday if the All Blacks win. Air NZ pilots, however, will have to announce Australia's win.
It followed an earlier suggestion that the losing airline repaint their fleet in the opposition colours.
Air New Zealand began the exchange on Twitter by sending the Australian airline a digitally altered photo of a Qantas passenger plane painted completely black, with slogans including "team All Blacks" "bound in black" and "simply the best".
"We've been thinking about this wager. How about you paint your planes like this?" the airline said.
Qantas responded with their own image of an Air New Zealand plane in bright Australian gold, saying they "think it needs a golden touch".


The wager was well-received by rugby fans - prompting a more realistic re-think.

Air New Zealand responded: "We wouldn't want to slow our planes down … with all that extra paint", to which Qantas quipped: "We wouldn't think you'd be in a hurry to get here when you lose."
Qantas planes usually fly in a white-and-red colour scheme, while Air New Zealand usually fly white aircraft with a black tail.
The exchange was well-received by rugby fans and Twitter followers, prompting both sides to suggest the more realistic wager on the outcome.
"How about this? On Monday in the air, your crew wear our jerseys," Air New Zealand suggested earlier today.
"It's on! But let's not leave the pilots out!" Qantas agreed.
Both companies then agreed to "take this offline" to formalise the bet.
Neither have said if they are still considering repainting their entire fleet by Monday.

Source
The crew of Monday's Sydney to Auckland flight wore All Blacks jerseys, honouring a bet born on Twitter.









Good Sports

Re: Rwc 2015

This was a fantastic gesture by SBW

At first, I thought it was a pretty disgusting act by the steward, but then again he may have reacted instinctively to someone rushing towards the players. Good tackle.

I can imagine if Australia won they'd probably help the steward beat the kid or something equally nefarious.

That's porsch, trolling. He's hoping to rile you with the aspersions he's casting upon the fruits of your ancestral loins, Carlos & Paddy. At least, I'm pretty sure it's you he's talking to.

In the mids of the final's squabble, more refined stuff takes place. True sportsmanship spirit between real rugby fans ...

Re: Rwc 2015

As so the saga ends. Burgess back to RL.

And to think Eng management sited "disruption" as the reason not to bring in Armitage or Abendon...

Is this not a tad more disruptive. Bad to bring him in, bad to play him in centers.

Mistake all round. I don't think Burgess comes out if this much better than Eng tbh.

So much for selection based on his bringing something special...

Re: Rwc 2015

Now that Australia and NZ are 1-all in World Cups this year, 389/2 seems a decent riposte to last weekend's result.

Heh heh.. Looking forward to the rematch! The way England and Australia are each going at the moment, Glenn McGrath's traditional 5-0 prediction for the 5-match series will fall woefully short.

Can't remember the last time England decisively won the Ashes. You know, like 5-0, but that must be virtually impossible, right? (Didn't realise you were such a strong England supporter, Porsch. )

416/2. Lol!
