Grreat win by the All Blacks. Aussie really only looked dangerous when they were up a man, and of course it too 14 minutes for Aussie to score twice with a man up. If Smith had come back on at exactly 10 minutes that 2nd try might not have happened, that's whyt I was so pissed when Milner-Scudder tried to get a long kick in instead of making sure to kick into touch. Smith had already been of for 12 minutes by that stage.
ABs let Aussie back in, though Aussie also played themselves back in. Buyt in a 15-15 match up Aussie never looked likely to take the NZ boys down. So massively relieved to finally get that back to back win and 3 time champion achievement. Would have hated 3-time champion to first go to a country where Rugby is a 4th string winter sport. That's just not right!
And, excuse the French, a big FUCK YOU!! to the Aussie and England media for being complete and utter fucktards in the way they wrote about the ABs this week. Everyone actually involved in the tournament from coaches to players to supporters to organisers have been brilliant, but the fucking fuckers from the Aussie and British media really lowered the tone and they should be told to stop being such fuck heads. The fucking fuckers should just fuck off!
Also, no one should ever adopt the not saying the name "All Blacks" approach again. It doesn't work. Sure I accept Michael Cheika's personal approach of always using the country name, but this was an edict from on high in Aussie telling players who normally do say "All Blacks" not to use the name. It was a silly attempt at mind games that only actually played with the minds of the Wallabies, negatively.
