Springboks put out their most experienced side ever!

Some wag was quick on Wikipedia tonight:
"The Japan national rugby union team (often known as the Cherry Blossoms or more recently the Murderers of Springboks)"

They were AWESOME!  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked   Shocked.   I watched England on Friday night and wondered what had happened to the modern game. I was bored rigid, and started channel hopping and playing on my iPad.  I put the TV on this pm after a trip to the shops, and was hooked,. It was electrifying. They were liike a pack of hounds harrying a bear, fast, relentless, fearless.  An amazing performance which should not be downplayed by arguments about the Springboks being past it. The Japanese absorbed their best shots and kept coming back for more. The most impressive Springbok on display was Francois Pienaar, who was a model of what we hope Rugby
 turns out, a true gentleman. Maybe this tournament will be worth watching after all. Undecided

Followed up by a dull slugfest between Les Bleus and The Azuri..... The Northern Hemispheres game is well behind in skill and panache.  Sleepy

Agreed, an absolutely cracking game. Well done to Japan for tenacity, guts, flair and attacking play. Next game against Scotland on Wednesday which could be interesting...

Japan game was amazing - just saw some highlights on TV.

I hope the AB's don't have an extra seat on the plane* when they come home, else they might end up being denied entry back into NZ  Wink

* when Team NZ won the America's Cup in 1995 the cup was so big that they booked a separate seat for it on the Air NZ flight back from LA.

The Webb Ellis trophy is very small in comparison - I'm sure Ritchie McCaw can hold it comfortably in one hand during the flight home - says Pierre with fingers crossed  Smiley

There are going to be a lot of upset gamblers here in NZ Angry

The TAB (official betting organisation) is offering $1,000,000 if you can pick all the results of RWC correctly
