Oh come on, the sinbinning of McAlister and awarding the final try off the final pass clearly had a HUGE impact.

But yeah, the team was terrible. I blame the selectors more than the players. What the fuck were they thinking? Especially in the backs. That was bad.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a pity New Zealand are out of it.

Awesome, NZ and AUS are out of it! Argentina (or Fiji) for the win.

What a great day for International Rugby. Just edged ahead of cricket in the competitive credibility stakes.....

Not sure the point about this being good for world rugby holds. It would if Australia and NZ had gone down to Fiji and Argentina, but England and France? They're hugely established powers as it is. I do hope the Argentines manage to pull off the greatest unexpected Cup win ever, though. THAT would be amazing for world rugby.

I'm still really fucking crushed by the All Blacks loss though.

Indeed, that was the wrong way to go and it galvanized the french, picked their pride up... they had nothing to loose and everything to proove. Maybe they just wanted it more...
Just be careful now not to think the hardest part is done.

From an european point of view, it was a really sunny day to see two of the "real rugby world cup" nations going down to 2nd zone nations

after the two favourites yesterday got deservedly beaten by a brutal and brilliant england and france, i now have no idea how the rest of the this world cup will turn out. after englands annihaliation by SA 3 weeks ago i never thought i'd see us in a semi-final. never. and the all blacks going out in the quarters as well, couldn't believe what i was watching (especially when when that forward pass decided the game). i won't even bother making any future predictions. there's no point.

there are quite spooky parralells between the all blacks this year and brazil last year. both crashed out in the quarter finals to france and both were overwhelming favourites for the tournament. and both didn't face particularly testing opposition until this stage.

Mind you, it could be argued that Australia were severely unlucky to lose 2-nil to Brazil. The reffing was horrendous in that group F match.

Brazil won the World Cup 5 times, they are not the world champions of friendly games.

The English team is amazing too
