Muddled thoughts of a concussed prop
Yes sports fans, we’re getting set to watch a match nobody wants to play in, and nobody really wants to watch. Yup, that dreaded losers playoff for Bronze.
Hansen's recent record
When I see people explaining away this loss - the manner of this loss - by talking about how great England were and how good Hansen has been, I don’t get it.
What hurt more, CWC or RWC?
It's funny, if you'd asked me what would hurt more, the All Blacks or Black Caps coming up short in the WCs, I'd have said the ABs all day long.
The risk analysis tragedy at the heart of the All Blacks
This may be severely tainted with my bitterness about walking out the stadium last night, at these fluffybunny Englishmen bleating about wonderful they were and how shit we were. And they were right, I had nothing to say except that they were, and are, worthy winners and deservedly favourites for the WC
Having just watched it again, I still think people are underestimating how good a coaching masterclass this was by Eddie Jones
So by this time tomorrow we'll know if we're still in the comp or if we've reverted to 1991.
NZ fans overconfident?
Last time I saw this much confidence here was just before the Aussies smashed us to bits.
