There will be a lot of debate and criticism after the national disgrace of the last two matches! It looks like the opposing teams have trained and worked hard at countering the All Blacks' methods of play - it might not have helped having Ronan O'Gara as coach of top NZ team Canterbury Crusaders. Whatever, they have a lot of work to do now on rebuilding the team with new tactics, sorting out their best new players and dropping any who are over the hill or just not up to scratch. They are still a great team so this shouldn't take away from the great Irish and French performances. :YMAPPLAUSE:

Pure coincidence that the referee who sent off the England player in record time is Ffrench ~X(
When all else fails, read the instructions.

Twas a good game. Now England can go and win against the French next weekend and Irish eyes will be smiling.
