This weekend I’m hating on any Frenchies. Yes even French forum members.
Let the All Blacks layeth the smacketh downeth.
France has always had a damn solid team and I was surprised by Wales. Holy sheet! Should be a good match.
Honestly, I was hoping to see Chabal be a beast again. Sucks he was left out. =(
I want to see this kind of tension again!
I’m watching it with beer in hand and fist pump at the ready. Funnily enough we have quite a cohort of French postgraduate students in my dept, and they are watching it with us.
AB’s are looking awesome but it’s not over ’til it’s over. Wales vs Australia, shiiiit that was a manly push by the Welsh at the end, what an epic 85th minute converted try!
As a BIG Springbok fan I feel obliged to remind you won that game
I’m still pissed off at how South Africa was cheated out of their place in the semi final…but I think the All Blacks are going to DESTROY the French
We’re having a RWC final party here in the middle of the U.S.! We’re even waiting for it to be available for download so we can watch it with proper kiwi commentators. I can’t take rugby commentary seriously if it’s in an American accent, and I’m American…
Yeah the NZ commentators are hard case sometimes… And it would piss me off to hear an America commentator mispronounce every Maori name, which they no doubt do.
Honestly, anything worth watching should not have American commentators.
Yeah, having lived overseas, it annoys me that Americans are so proud to be World Champions in sports that only we play. At least the US women’s soccer/football team made it to the Women’s World Cup Final this year but lost to Japan.
American commentators do screw up a lot of Maori names, (Jerome "Kai-ay-no"), but what bugs me most is that they try to make a rugby tutorial out of every play by relating it back to the NFL. "New Zealand lost Dan Carter… That would be like the Colts losing Peyton Manning!" Arrrghh… STFU!
OMFG! Got up at 3am to watch the final. No spoilers here, but suffice to say I have no fingernails left!
New research has shown people are more likely to have a heart attack while watching an important rugby match. <—- NZ agrees.
ugh i miss playing rugby! Green your a lucky bastard getting a chance to see the all blacks play all the time.
That was WAY too close for comfort. Well done NZ!!!
As for the French…to lose by 1 point to the mighty All Blacks, at Eden Park. Say no more.
Wicked wicked game. It was havoc in town. We rocked up to get a spot in a pub 5 hours before the game started. When the game finished everyone just floaded the roads cops had no show. I have a video on Facebook of Courtenay Place, insane.
I turned up an hour before kickoff at our University Staff Club, had to battle to make room for a seat aye. Town was pumping, people everywhere screaming and every car tooting, was ridiculous. I bet the waterfront in Aux was complete and utter mayhem! I headed home for a mint sleep though, and had IM to do, sad. Money doesn’t sleep for the world cup final!
