Interested to see what tricks Shag pulls out of his sleeve for this one. Thinking of the last QF the ABs played. France were the victims. Hope for something similar.

Just hope the All Blacks aren't too passive the first 20 minutes... they cannot let Ireland get a sizeable lead...

Could someone quickly ask Boris to promise an All Blacks win come what may?

Lol. That's a rookie thing to say. A pro commentator should at least know who will be doing the goal kicking.
In fairness, i don’t think he was saying that, think he said he wouldn’t trust Barrett to kick goals in a clutch situation. He followed it up by saying Barrett would be first choice 10 if not for Mo’ungas kicking (which tbf in itself is probably a load of old bollocks too)

Decent insight


Stating that team to be Ireland would have been great insight

Will be watching both QFs in a pub with friends, so probably won't be back on here until sometime tomorrow.

So in case I don't get another chance. Here's hoping for a great match, with no controversy, injuries or cards.

Whatever the result may the congratulations be heart felt and the gloating good natured. The sun will come up tomorrow regardless.

Enjoy the game everyone.

GO THE ALL BLACKS!!!!
In the pub. Bump for the game.

Enjoy everyone!
