I'm torn. Can they both lose ?

A three all draw with several red cards for each side?

All Blacks v. Springboks on Saturday.

NZ hasn't lost a game at Eden Park since 1994 (they were beaten by the Yaapies). The Springboks are on a 10 game winning streak and look the form team.

What's yer pick?

Dreadful officiating by Romain Poite. Boks had the measure of them. Even the commentators were saying there was no foul on BOTH yellow cards for Bizzie. Disgusting.

In other news, his application for New Zealand citizenship has been fast tracked...

I like Poite and surprised if he had a 'mare.

I've come down to Sandy Park for my first match of the Premiership season this afternoon; Exeter Chiefs v Wasps. Looking forward to it. Going to try to get to as many away matches as I can this season.

they are long over due for a Sanzar scalp.

Boks extreemly hard done with the two yellows on DuPlessis. I would havd tipped the Boks had Poite not cocked that up. good to know the Kiwis are just about as fed up with Nonu as we all have been, if anyone deserved a red today it was him.

What a marvelous, marvelous game.

I actually still haven't watched the last 20 minutes, but up until then it was close, it was intense, each team seemed like it was on the brink of busting it wide open.

I think the 50 minute substitutions of the brothers duPlessis was the turning point. I never understood why you'd sub someone after they've just had a ten minute breather. Injury, yes, but if you're going to sub them so soon after the break you may as well sub them during the half.

The progression of the Boks has been remarkable. They still lack New Zealand's rugby IQ at each position, although that gap has narrowed a lot. The Boks still miss more tackles, which is ironic considering how they try to play "hard man" rugby. In physicality, overall South Africa is better, but "ball sense" is All Blacks in every position but maybe hooker (Bismark) and Jean deVilliers. And that was the difference. And JdV is such a class act. Habana was sensational.

Well played both teams. Games like that are good for the sport.

Bravo New Zealand. Worthy champions.

Indeed. Habana easily a hat trick had his hammy not blown. The Strous for BDP sub was puzzling. Tell your boys to keep their team sheet right...wtf world champs can do proper paper work?

I just caught the end of the Maori v. Canada game.
Good crowd which, judging by the racket was right into the game.
