Re: 4th June 1989.

I remember thinking at the time of the handover "50 years of one country two systems? Yeah right, they'll be lucky to get 10" so quite surprised they got longer tbh. It's always been just a matter of time, though.

Best of luck, naki111 - stay safe, bro.

Re: How did you learn about the PR Forum?

Bumped into an old Kiwi friend I hadn't seen in ages at a wedding in Taipei in 2003. It was the time of SARS so masks were optional. We ended up watching a couple of the RWC games together at the Brass Monkey and he told me about the bored.

Re: All Blacks: Post mortem

A post mortem requires a body. The All Blacks are not dead, if last nights game is anything to go by. I was thinking about results in RWC tournaments. The All Blacks, in 9 appearances, have 3 golds, one silver and 3 bronze. England have one gold, two silvers, and have never won the bronze medal. Wi...

Gotta say , we could have buried Wales tonight . A couple of tap penalties and some really unnecessary substitutions ( especially in the centres ) and we really left them off the hook .

As a tournament tough, the Japs smashed it out the park. Probably helpful to have a friendly timezone no doubt but even then it's probably the best one yet for me, and should be hard to beat. Hugely successful Asian tourney all round and I'm probably a bit miffed I didn't jump on a plane to take so...
