Love me some Union. That was super entertaining. A shame about Wales though. Gonna try and get myself along to a few Melbourne Rebels games next Super 12 season.

Hahahaha, and he was born in New Zealand too. Thanks, Robbie Deans and Quade Cooper, you've served your country well.

If there's a Melbourne vs Wellington game, I may well head down myself. Except I'll be cheering for the Hurricanes.

(I may consider the Rebels my third team though. I have a soft spot for Otago and cheer for them when they aren't playing Wellington.)

I only really watched the start, and it didn't start well.

The not-totally-paranoid part of me knew we'd won the game right then and there at the kick-off.

The paranoid part of me, even when that scrum was awarded with half a minute to go, still feared the worst would somehow befall us in a bizarre twist of fate. I even turned to Charlotte and said something like "never trust in a victory over the Wallabies until they're dead".

okay, because i'm a girl (lol) i figure i can get away with asking stupid questions.

one thing i've noticed with watching the rwc games is this noise they make during the restart kick or whatever after points were scored. do they do this at every rugby game or is it just a world cup thing? a minor thing, yeah, but the noise amuses me so i was curious.

THAT NOISE IS IRRITATING THE SHIT OUT OF ME.

Whoever thought it up needs to be shot and I hope it doesn't become a "thing" that they keep doing post-Cup.

So, Australia manage to get the bronze by defeating Wales. Shame. The Welsh deserved it, but without Warburton, Priestland, or Adam Jones, their attack seemed to just founder and they were totally let down on the kicking front. Oh well, they're a young and improving team right now - give them four years and they should be fairly imposing at the 2015 Cup.

I woke up unnaturally early this morning because I'm so excited/nervous about tonight. I can't recall anticipating a rugby game this much.

Since this is pretty much the "Axver talks to himself about rugby" thread, I'll keep going! I must admit, I'm getting a bit nervous ahead of the big game tonight. Statistically, we're due for a loss to France; we win one, we lose one. 1987 win (grand final), 1999 loss (semi), 2003 win (3rd place play-off), 2007 loss (quarter-final), 2011 win (group stage). And they are the last team to beat the All Blacks at Eden Park, back in 1994. So they probably think history is on their side.

But then we'd never beaten Australia at the World Cup until last week. (Though the two teams had only ever met twice before at the Cup. - in the semi-finals of both 1991 and 2003.)

Haha we were all "so that's what Bieber will be doing in fifteen years".

And oh for fuck's sake, 1. WEEPU YOU ARE NORMALLY SUCH A GOOD KICK WHAT HAPPENED?! and 2. OUR FIRST FIVE-EIGHTHS ARE CURSED. I can't believe we're down to our FOURTH CHOICE first five-eighth for the last 43 minutes of a goddamn World Cup final. Sweet jesus, I'm so nervous, the French are fucking up for this and I think they could do it if we make just one too many blunders. Need more tries. Need to fucking get our kicks.
