Most likely. Ref can't be blamed for giving those however. We are all on the wrong end of those close calls at times.
I think it was still marginally forward but you'd have to let that one go in the context of the game.

I've noticed that most NH posters (save Notch and a couple of others) seem to want to talk about the ref and the rules.
Us southerners seem more interested in the game itself... for all of its little imperfections.

It's a fair point loaded, but when you're English, and your team got dumped out of the tournament, playing crap you feel you have the right to sow misery on someone else's party.

Can't agree with the OK in the context of the game bit though. It was forward, clearly, they had half a look and then let Carter decide!

Notch, I'm surprised with the result, I truly am.

I didn't know which AB team would turn up. The fumbly one or the catchy one.  This result is very significant for us for a few reasons. We are taking this RWC seriously.

I see the French team is doing a lap around the stadium to thank their fans.

Presumably, All Black players and supporters are going to ridicule them for doing so in the same way they did to England after Old Trafford in 1997.

As was said on television, the boo's seemed to be when St. Andre was being interviewed on the big screen.  So may be not aimed at the players.

Picamoles deserved yellow for putting his fist into McCaw's face (he didn't hit him, if he had R McCaw might still be unconscious). But the whole issue arose only because McCaw, after being blown for one offence, then deliberately clung on to the ball to stop the French s/h taking a quick pen if he chose to. In other words he gained an illegal advantage in a frustrating and illegal way. In the heat of the moment, Picamoles gesture was 100% wrong but understandable For having provoked the whole thing before and after the whistle, McCaw deserved yellow too, while the penalty should still have been reversed for Picamoles' foul play.

SH posters may jump on me here with howls of (?self-righteous) indignation. But there is an important gap between the letter of the law and the spirit of the game. It is surely wrong that a player who deliberately breaks the rules then does so again after the whistle somehow gains an advantage from his actions.

Only you would know - but you did. Pity, because the England team were actually performing a lap of thanks to the Manchester crowd who, having been given a rare chance to host the national team, had responded by coming in large numbers and giving loud support to the England team. It had nothing to do with the result on the day.

Once upon a time it was all about which France turned up. Nowadays it's always the same France.

Well done NZ.

No side would have lived with that. That was a real game designed to end the bullcrap about the French and All Black rivalry. It set out to humiliate the French and I guess it did a spectacular job.

The World Cup looks suddenly a very hollow affair though as 'contenders' revert to 'survivors for now'.

Before this game i thought Australia would be the team to beat....Having watched this game though i am not so sure any more.

I do think it may come to Australia v New Zealand final.

Personally I was disappointed in France this morning, they were too soft in too many areas, in that second half they gave up, which doesnt really do the ABs much good, as South Africa is going to be a lot tougher next week.

As a Kiwi, I do enjoy watching ruthless rugby being played when supplemented with skill and pace, it may to some just look lethal, but its about blowing the opposition off the park with a full range skills, can they do it again in this tournament, Im not so sure. But I'd love to see them try.

Very impressed tonight with the ABs lineout, but again SA will bring more options and contest more.

Also like the idea of leaving Reid in the middle of the park for his defence, let Coles run the tram lines as SA will run at Carter all day.

Great display by NZ.

Looks like a couple of posters went 'full special' tonight.

I tried to explain to people how poor this France side were, noone would listen, and too many were holding onto a past myth of french flair.

Couldn't agree more. It's not pretty if you want the element of suspense in a game, but you just have to sit back and admire the way players naturally fall into the right attacking shapes no matter what the scoreline.

People didn't think NZ would destroy them? Huh? I'm not sure who you have been talking to.

I tried to explain that the All Blacks were laughing at the headlines they were getting through their pool, and quite a few laughed at me Wink

This was much more a story of New Zealand than it is one of France.

Sad to see Freddie Michelack hobble off a very great French player.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

It seems if you post a legitimate point of view against Richie McCaw or the New Zealand rugby team, you will be labelled as 'bitter' and a 'troll', from people who seemingly have very little clue about how to conduct a discussion beyond pathetically resorting to insults.
