    Sadly I might not make Tokyo for Quarterfinals - not looking good.

    I have tickets to QF 2 & 4 games - 2 tickets to each game - this is Pools A & B.

    If I can't swing it - anybody interested?

    always easy to blame the game's officials. Your team just didn't rise to the occasion.

    :rofl

    Strangely the try scoring seems less important to Kiwis these days. What are you blokes becoming reliant on field goals and penalties... Gawd help the game if that’s the way it’s going. I mean even the Blacks didn’t drop until Carter let a few go, now Rugby is better because a side kicks field goals instead of running you say ... interesting

    not enough though... I mean they didn't win... tries, penalties, conversions.

    The AB's have lost a more than a few over the years with a higher try count and not enough kicking. But like you, I prefer an open running game where ties count the most...

    The shorter answer would be to explain what is right with it and that is not much :p

    Penalties and drop goals are worth too much imo. A team with a good kicker can just wait for a penalty or get inside about 30m and set up for a drop goal. It would win a lot of games, but it would be boring as watching paint dry.

    The argument that penalties need to be worth 3 so people don't infringe to stop a try is bullshit. Just be stricter on yellow cards and it will stop pretty quickly.

    Bullshit.
    The offering depends on a decent home IT setup.
    Actual help line call: "...it's dropping out and fuzzy..."
    Spark "...try moving your router nearer the TV"
    Customer "Perfect"

    With a decent fibre to wireless setup we have no issues (and we're 15km out of town).
    Most of the problem is with silly old cahnts that couldn't stream to a device if I held a gun to their head...
