Baie geluk aan die briljante MR Richie MccAWESOME, die All Blacks, Nieu Zeeland, al die kiwi ondersteuners, Antjie, Antibok en KiwiMate! Jul is die welverdiende Wereldkampioene vir die volgende 4 jaar! Aan die ander, ‘another four years boys’!
Die Franse was briljant vannaand en was dalk die beste span op die veld. Maar eerlik waar, daar is ‘justice’ in vandag se lewe en die IRB se vlagskip is wenners en waardige wenners van die ‘holy grail’!
The French can only blame themselves tonight. Bad coaching or defensive pattern is to blame for Tony Woodcock’s easy try. Your scrumhalve should be behind your lineout players. This rubbish that you have your no.9 in the tremlines and your extra forward at the back, is an elementary mistake ‘Mr Watson’!
Piri Weepu, reckoned and glorified by many kiwis, were found wanting; and almost lost it for the All Blacks.Overrated and carried by good teams!
I’m not going to try and take away anything from the All Blacks win; but these two other factors helped the All Blacks, (to obtain something that took them 24 years, were as it took the Springboks 12 years); HOMEGROUND ADVANTAGE & CRAIG JOUBERT!
The last time the All Blacks lost at Eden Park was in 1994 vs the Frogs! The last time the All Blacks won the ‘holy grail’ was in NZ. I said it numerous times before, homeground advantage is HUGE!
I’m a big Craig Joubert fan; I think he is the best referee in the world. However; he was ordinary tonight. Richie McCaw, again came away with daylight robbery. Brad Thorne, should have been penalised a couple of times for early jumping in the lineout. The French were nailed for offside at the rucks; Morgan Parra (left because of a McCaw knee to the face) went early, detracted and didn’t have an influence on play, got penalised; but, the kiwis were not penalised for the same thing. The scrums, we know by now, is a lottery….the lucky numbers went to the All Blacks!
OK, I’m very happy for the All Blacks! They are not just the best at the tournament (the only unbeaten team), they are not just the number 1 IRB ranked team; they are and have been the best and most successful team of any sport and by any team, over last 100 years! Enjoy; you deserve it as no other team has ever deserved it!
PS: even Bok supporters must know acknowledge that I told you for years that the Boks won’t win it with John Smit, Pierre Spies, Bryan Habana and Morne Steyn. Those ‘old aged home’ team was not good enough!
PS: Graham Henry het ook ‘n groot fout begaan. Hy moes vir Sonny Bill Williams baie, baie vroeer opgestuur het. Ma’a Nonu, was baie goed intoom gehou, en nie ‘n faktor nie. Anyhow, die All Blacks het gewen.
