Congrats JohnBull...though there would be few looks of surprise on most Kiwis faces...we have been saying for some time now in this country that the
All Blacks would lose to England as they have too many new players and quite frankly the All Blacks are a second rate side at the moment.
Felt so strongly about it I placed $50 on England to win...so yay!
But don't let that distract you from the pleasure of the win...given that it must be a rare occurance - this being of course only your 5th win ever
against the All Blacks since we first met in 1905...
Above all - and I had the chance to watch it at 1 a.m. on satellite- a great game: All Blacks (even with all the flak ever since the Aussies
annihilated them) as strong as ever and Lomu amazing.
Jonny Wilkinson indisputably world-class to and a plague on video-referees.
The rugby League gane was also, apparently, very good.
Veil of silence over cricket, gentlemen,please.
However, those familiar with Estragon's theory of Divine retribution and the Kylie Minogue factor will know that England's winning anything may well
be the prelude to a time of immense cosmic upheaval.
Expect magnetic poles flipping, plagues of frogs, the Thames running with blood and the worst ever Christmas records
Good point about Great Britain as the Rugby League side, JB -hence to be ignored by all Englishmen.
The strength of the All-Blacks is controversial; but I work with a couple of Kiwis who insist that the controversy is all media hype.
I'll just settle with the observation that it was the best game I'd seen for a long time.
WE get premiership soccer all the time out here but actualy getting to see Rugby is a rare treat.
