Good performance by France but Australia not totally disgraced by the 41/17 scoreline.

I have learned that the full name of Leicester Fainga'anuku is

Leicester Ofa Ki Wales Twickenham Fainga'anuku
... His father Malakai Fainga’anuku played prop for Tonga in the 1999 Rugby World Cup. During one of the games during the World Cup, in which Tonga beat Italy, at Welford Road Stadium, Leicester, England. Malakai named his son after the city in honour of the game. Wales was used as one of his middle names as the hosts and Twickenham was named after Twickenham Stadium where Tonga were due to play their next match. ...

I did not know any of that... ^:)^ ;)))

I lived in Leicester for a short while and played club rugby for Oadby and Wigston (Oadby Wyggestonian RFC). My father taught at Leicester University for a number of years, and all my English sisters were educated at a school in Oadby, famous for having Brian May, later a member of Queen as a pupil.

More Brendan Nel...



Personally I think that the All Blacks will come back stronger than ever, and will be up for winning the World Cup. They have the depth, and the bruised pride to do just that!
