      Having to play a semi final the week before is a good one.

          Predictions then?

          I can't see past NZ. Yes, it'll be an almighty battle at the breakdown, but if, and when they get the ball I think the Blacks have to much out wide.

          Let's hope it's a good one.

            Bookies say NZ by 6 points and they are rarely wrong. If Hoop-Cock can play two massive games they have a chance of an upset, hard to see it though

              I was hoping it would be Henderson - and to an extent he did.

              But Milner Skudder is certainly one of them. Sure he went very well in the past S.15 Championship but he has really had some great performances this RWC.
              Yes. The AB coach had the balls to select an inexperienced bloke, cap him just before the RWC then pitch him in as a first choice, rightly based on his outstanding form as a player, and bugger the safety first route. Little lad too. Would it happen in Ireland?

                Happened with Conor Murray.




                NZ to win for me. Think they will and for €€€ reasons I hope they do.

                  .
                  who selected him?
                  "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                  Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                      Any Coach would have selected him imo . . .clear talent. Same as Robbie Henshaw.

                          Thats pretty incredible from Oz, three of the top five defensive ruck players. Could they spring a surprise?

                              That is incredible from Oz... big shout out to Agustin Creevy...
                              He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                                Fardy is very under-rated.
