Rugby World Cup

thought ireland were certs to win .. some performance from the all blacks , dont know where they dug that up from ,,
 
Great game!

Thought Ireland had a 20 min spell in the 2nd half, where they went away from their game and tried to force it a little too much (thought Jonny Sexton was the main culprit).

BOD nailed it pre-match.......The breakdown battle was crucial and the All Blacks just shaded it.
 
Not unexpected. Some display by New Zealand. Incredibly defence at the end to defend 35 phases without giving away a penalty.
Really thought this would be the WC we’d deliver on our promise but not to be.
Frances to lose now.
Not at all.. S.A. and N.Z. are seasoned teams.

England not so much.

Ireland were so good to watch tonight. England are so slow in comparison.

I thought Ireland would win as well, but they were never certs - nobody ever is against the Blacks. They haven't been at their best recently, but their highest level is stratospherically high - they once went over two YEARS without dropping a pass in training.

Are they now favorites?
 
Ireland bottled it. I’ll be very surprised if this New Zealand team win it.
Winners of France South Africa clear favourites.
 
What a load of shite

You must have got caught up in the emotion.

So many poor decisions, so many mistakes.

New Zealand played as good as they can and it was just enough when we played well below what we are capable of.

If we were anywhere near our best we’d have won. In the cold light of day, we underperformed when it mattered most on the biggest stage yet again.

Even if Sexton had kicked a routine penalty for him, we could have won it with a drop goal at the end. Pressure got to him like a few others uncharacteristically.

Credit to NZ they flew out of the blocks and even when we clawed our way back into it against 14 men, we couldn’t hit the heights we have shown in this tournament or over the last two years.
This team deserves more of a legacy but we 100% bottled it.

Hard luck everybody. :vamp:
 
The Irish fail again. The hype and expectation brings pressure. NZ coped better as, of course, they live with expectation constantly.
 
The way the French started, thought the South Africans were going to be blown away, but credit to them, they're still in the game!
 
So many mistakes in the last 5 minutes ... boks really not on it ... going to take something special to get back into this ... don't see it
