Right, let’s talk facts. Not to sound like a whining little fool, but that English ref did the All Blacks wrong. Two clear examples – that pass to Michalak was forward, and play shouldn’t have been allowed to continue. Secondly, when NZ was pressuring the French line at the end, French hands in the ruck were not penalised.
Of course, NZ didn’t do themselves any favours. Richie MacCaw looked disjointed in the second, and at this level you should be hitting every penalty and drop-goal you try. In the end, I’m sad it’s over, but all I can say to the All Blacks is this – thanks for the memories. Too bad you choked again, but I’m still with you.
This World Cup has just lost it’s best team, to a side that’s really not that good. Come on Argentina, and God forbid the fecking kudus win it.
On a happier note, Rock Down Harare was pretty good. With watching the rugby at the Scud we only got there after eleven, only to find they had erected a BIG SCREEN next to the stage, and it was showing the rugby!
We also just got there as the Rusike Brothers were finishing their set, it was a bit of alright, although they’re looking a bit on the veteran side 🙂 They were followed by some young punks, doing only covers, notably a couple of very weak Metallicas.
Final impression? These boys know how to throw a party, sound system was awesome and there are some very pretty young white girls out there!
