yes i agree with your last point

as i've stated many times before, a plate/bowl competition would be excellent for teams like Argentina, Italy, Canada, Samoa, Fiji and the USA who put in great performances but finished in 3rd/4th positions in their groups

I think New Zealand may prove your Australia point wrong next week though

Colin Charvis - apparently third sexiest rugby player in Wales, if BBC report is to be believed.

Earlier this year Colin Charvis was deemed less popular than Osama Bin Laden by one opinion poll.


But the Wales captain has returned to favour, at least amongst female supporters in the Principality.

Charvis has been voted the third sexiest rugby player in Wales in a survey of 800 women.

"Am I? Brilliant," he said on being given the news as he arrived in Brisbane ahead of Sunday's quarter-final against England.

The survey also revealed that 82% of women thought Welsh rugby players had sexier legs than their English counterparts.

sorry I am back after not having the net 4 a few weeks.
Already into the semi-finals!
I was gunning for the rish, until they got licked by the french.
Now the All Blacks are gunna kick aussies... atleast thats what the buildup is suggesting.
Does anybody agree with me that rugby is realllly "soft" now.
I mean players are basicly not allowd to ruck now... I mean a really good protest would have been to wear tutu's or ballet skirt thingys and play in them, and kiss the oppositions hand, a bit disrespectful to the country u play for, but it would have given the world cup organisers a bit of a shock and embarressment and really make them think, but that's what it's almost like now.

rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen

unlike football/soccer, which is a gentlemen's game played by hooligans

The Aussies didn't beat the All Blacks - rather the All Blacks lost; cos I don't think the Aussies played that aggressively. I can't believe how shit AB played, when they were fabulous throughout the Cup so far. The whole game was no attack, just defense, and they hardly got the ball. But whenever they got the ball, they passed it to a Wallaby!

:shakes head:

New Zealand versus Australia match summary: I nearly cried and I could've thrown up. That referee was USELESS. He penalised NZ so many times and missed so much the Aussies did.

Ah well, NZ still has the Bledisloe, Tri-Nations, Super 12, Women's World Cup, 7s World Cup, and Under-21s World Cup, and we are easily the best rugby team in history, so I guess I can hang on until 2007.
