    I'm nervous about this one, England look really, really good.

    I just went and signed up with TVNZ On Demand to watch this and it's been so long since I've watched NZ television that I didn't even know they had a 3rd channel called Duke. Anyone know who the commentators will be?

    Don't they? I just saw that you can watch TVNZ live online and figured it was just a mirror of the normal channel. Like I say I haven't watched NZ tv in years so I really have no idea. If that's the case I'll just watch it on ITV again.

    Edit - yeah it's not, just checked their guide and it's not available on demand, oh well, ITV it is.

    Hilarious ! ...Eddie Jones is even more of an idiot than thought raving on that the ABs are spying on their training sessions, anyway as mentioned before it's only possible to come up with very small changes to try & surprise teams, to win a match it basically comes down to when you have possession how well you use it & how good your defence is.

    The biggest worry is anything can happen in a one-off knockout game, but really confident ABs will win comfortably, we have too many x-factor players, class & speed overall for them & have the better varied tactical kicking game, if we clean out consistently well on our own ball again we will run them off their feet, Poms have improved over the last few years but still find them pretty predictable.

    England got cut up by Aussie a lot, especially in the first half, Aussie were just **** ups and couldn't convert, we will.

    First half Sinckler was left headbutting the ground pretty much every scrum.

    That quick pair of tries really changed everything. But tbh in the first half I thought Aussie looked the better team. They just also, at the same time, looked like the worse team.

    Second half England suffocated them out. But there was enough in the first half to see that we can rip them apart.

    **** if we play like last week we could rip anyone in history apart.

    It's been a big if though lately hasn't it? Who knows what All Black team is going to turn up? The one that beat Argentina by 4, drew with SA and lost to the Wallabies this year? Or the one that had the near perfect Bledisloe match against the Aussies, humiliated Canada and pulled out one of the best performances of the tourney to beat Ireland? The way it's been lately you could flip a coin as to which one of those 2 teams we're going to see turn up on the day.

    Hope they do the original Haka instead of the new one.

    No point trying to compare this team to the team that beat Argentina by 4 when the personnel is so different. That team had eight different starters compared to what we are rolling out now.

    This team is a new beast that has been growing and flourishing.

    It was like the people talking about us losing to Ireland recently like it mattered that a team with like 10 different players lost a year ago to a team that had slumped since.

    It's the World Cup, they're going to play the top team and of course they're going to front up for it.

    Would've preferred Coles to start at hooker, with Todd out reckon it was a good idea to move Cane to the reserves so we have a specialist 7 to come on later in the match, Scott Barrett will go well at 6 also adds to our lineout height.

    Coles coming off the bench offers a good burst of speed late game. Worked well last week.

    Already read about Scott starting at 6 and moving Cane to the bench before the team was named, seems like a good plan.

    Weather forecast is currently good for Saturday, so doesn't look like the English will have the rain to help them out.

    That's a hell of a team. So this means Reiko is definitely on the outer for good now?

  16. Post
    Barring injury, for this tournament at least it would seem - the Crusader players also have had the benefit of playing together all year and winning a title.

    Coles is our best hooker though & adds more steel in our front row at scrum time than Taylor as well.

    For good might be a bit of a stretch given he's 22 and signed a 4 year big money contract with NZR last year.

    Hadn't savea signed a big deal as well when he got dropped?

    Was older and Savea could have been around longer if he wanted to put the work in and fight for his jersey back. But he didn't, he had ongoing motivation and fitness issues even when he was firing.

    If Ioane drops off the map at this age it will be because he doesn't fight to keep himself on it. Again he's 22.

    I don't like Cane out of the team. He's a great defender and adds a bit of mongrel with his big hits.

    Faith in Hansen though. S.Barrett will do a good job I'm sure.

    Cane isn't out of the team, just coming off the bench - Todd is out injured.

    Hmmm. I would have gone with Ford over Slade too. Suggests we think the only chance is to get the ball up the other end as quickly as possible. Lots of kicking for the corner.

    O. Farrell back to center, interesting to see what they have planned.

    Sucks to see no more Rieko by the looks of it, I think Rieko has better strides with his running, when he's in form hes quicker, flashier and hard to stop - still a fan of the guy. No clue what has happened to him, maybe overall poor season in Super and Bridge has the favor over him this year.

    What I've noticed between the two though is that Bridge is more gutsy, stronger and bolder, their speed is about the same imo.
