Totally Dera.
That's started to grate with me.
Yessssssss we won a scrum.
Whoopy fecking do.

All in all still as you were with England.
They can win a one out arm wrestling dirge fest but they are not equipped to deal with sides that can apply tempo.
They better hope it's monsoon season in Japan during the world cup.
Or that the Curry twins turn out to be the next Hooper and Pocock.
Mind you in the eyes of their media they probably already are.

But it was never a result change decision .

AB backs were to good on the night and were passes didn't go to hand last week the errors were fewer .

See this is where we disagree rum.
New Zealand win those key moments and small margins that define them.
Momentum changers where they kick on from and the opposition heads drop with a whiff of familiarity.
In a tight game you'd be amazed how many decisions they historically get from officials over the years, be it a dubious try, a card, a penalty whatever.

If you suspect I might be imagining things, dwell on this statistic.
The last player they have had sent off before SBW v the Lions last year was Colin Meads in 1967.
This from a side that have had the likes of Richard Lowe and Keith Murdoch in their ranks.
It's not just players that are intimidated by the black shirt as Lacy becomes the latest offical on a long list to assist them to victory.

Even the NZ commentators who aren’t famed for impartiality said they have come out on the wrong side of the balance of decisions in all three tests. Can’t say they would have won all or any but the refs went a long way to ensuring the world order remained unchanged.

Certainly France are heading in the right direction.

Lacey is an arsewipe.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

Didn't say I agreed with Lacey's decision but could understand why .

There is little doubt New Zealand play the game to their own rule book and get away with it .

There is the occasion their No8 lingers on the wrong side of the ruck 5 metres from the line only join the next ruck closer to the line .Making no attempt to get behind the ball before the pick up just joins the next ruck .

The fact is he is getting in the way of defenders on the wrong side of the ruck .

A special word of detestation must be heaped upon the commentators of the England /South Africa game . A swim in a shitshifter tanker load and they would still smell better than yesterday's commentary .
