I didn't expect that.

Hard luck Irish. Just wasn't your day, but your still an excelelnt team. Maybe is Carbury's [sp] time now.

Bizarre PT and yellow for Todd. I think Nige was in freebee mode, or something?

He deliberately obstructed the base of the goalpost to prevent the Irishman from touching the ball against that aforesaid base.

I saw it in real time and had a chuckle.
He did. It was quite cynical. But he didn’t break any of the rules in doing so, it was completely within the laws. One of the few wrong decisions of Owens career.
Off his feet, out of the game? (I don't know enough about the laws though; farked if I know)

Very cunning of Hansen to lull Ireland into a false sense of security by losing to them twice

4 more years boys.


Heaslip was saying he wouldn't have any Allblack over an Irish player before the game.


Irish media are a bunch of cheerleaders.

We were concerned for him, he was off form and obviously so, but I don't think anyone called for him to be dropped.

He's been bloody good this trip, though, aye!

Well done NZ. So clinical, I don't think we were actually playing badly to start off with, but any minor mistake was punished.
After that point we crumbled though.

The match against England is the final IMO

I'll hold my hand up in admitting I haven't actually read the rulebook, but isn't "being on the way" the fundamental base of defense?

He was preventing the ball being grounded, you can use any body part. Base of the post is considered in goal.

I agree, it's not so much that the Irish were so bad, it's just that our boys were on fire tonight.

Don’t agree, you were very good but we were very poor. Way too many unforced errors.

The YC for Todd was an absolute homer for Ireland. Todd was onside and since when has falling down and defending your line been a YC?

Terrible call from Owens that’s Stains an otherwise good game
