Not sure breaking our duck in such a meaningless game is even worth it.

Hansen has pretty much said he will throw on everyone who hasn't had a game yet, so hopefully some nice running rugby. A bit of fun, throw it around, and then the two teams can have a big piss-up and singsong in the dressing sheds afterwards.

Could be Wales best chance to beat an unmotivated ABs side, or an absolute thrashing. Depends what attitude both teams turn up with.

May as well use this game to farewell all the retiring players, which means Read, SBW, Crotty, and B Smith should all start. Couldn't really give two fucks about the team apart from that.

Sure the ABs will win. Wales will probably be looking to get home and recover. The regions will be tapping their feet impatiently to get their players back.

A bit of fun, semi serious and a contest for the less cripply challenged.

In concussion years, about 73.

Hang on. I just realised it could get worse for us.

Imagine being the outgoing coach and captain that got utterly pasted by the English, then become the first All Black side to lose to Wales in 140 years or however long its been.

One not to bother too much about missing. Still, I guess the rights to show it have been sold so someone has to turn out.

So glad this didn’t end up being the 100th meeting between the Boks and ABs.

Honestly, this dumb game is like getting a reach around from a hot babe after you've already blown your load 2 minutes earlier to some foul porn you're ashamed over. No one wants this game. Why is it even a thing.

Did I see some bright spark post on this bored last week insisting that we need play offs for 5th to 8th place? All that would do is give all quarter finalists two more games and one team would end up with three successive losses. What an achievement that would be.

So there is an upside to losing this one: it would piss off the Irish.

Time to select the rest of the Barrett family. Grandpa Ted should be good for the last 20.

If Wales win this I don't know who'd be pissed off the most the Welsh or the kiwis.

They are basically Irish so playing them would be a win for us. You are in trouble either way

I’ll tell you this for nothing, if Wales go balls out expansive and earn a scintillating win, I’ll not be fücking happy. The only way to bow out is to kick the shit out of the ball until it comes down with fücking snow on it.

Not quite that long, but I get the sentiment. On the plus side it might provide a small amount of motivation for a game that no side ever really once to play in.

So when we lose to Wales we drop from 3rd in the rankings to 5th.

Sorry, I meant if ... if we lose to Wales.
