Fair enough. As c69 notes it could get ugly if the traditional 3rd/4th chuck about happens

Cant watch anyway because of work. Probably for the best.

I'll just act like it never happened.

Many more changes than injuries. He’s just giving everyone a game. Treating this game with the respect it deserves.
Wish we’d gone home already, preparing for club rugby.

I hope so, if we throw the ball around and win it will just prove Gatland’s game plan has been completely wrong for 11 years. I’d hate for him to leave such a legacy.

It would drive you (collectively) mad and your thread would reach 750 pages in days.

But you're right. "Unlikely" doesn't really capture it

It might be a bored norm to ask for a Gavin Henson option, but that's a very impolite way to go about it.

5 of the 9 changes are down to injury (North, Francis, Parkes, Halfpenny, Wainwright).

The other 4 arguably strengthen us... maybe. Worryingly if we had made the final the team that's playing tomorrow is pretty similar to what would have played on Saturday :uhoh:

This is only a pointless exercise if ABs win comfortably.

I guess defeat will mean little for Wales ....but think of what Victory would mean?

Alternatively what if an All black reaction to a defeat was another defeat by Wales? Im pretty sure they would be less sanguine than they have been.

I`ll be watching it. But, there again, I`m an Osprey supporter so I am quite hardened to what I expect to see. :(

NZ TAB odds

NZ - $1.05
Wales - $8.60

:shock:

That is almost worth chucking $50 on Wales purely for the chance of the ABs getting 10 injuries in the first 20 minutes.
