    After that they’re 3rd. The kickback for us now is that Argentina are now 8th, and a win over them would have previously done nothing, if we are to win we will probably jump up to 5th

    "Thank you Fozzie, thank you, that'll be all..."

    What a moment for Arg.

    Fantastic defense.

    NZ hammered away Route 1 for the full 80 and made ZERO fucken impact.

    There was no plan B.

    Just rely on some Beaudy magic and if that doesnt
    pan out just keep running into the defensive line.

    Not a good AB vintage. Not 1998 but maybe 199.8

    Fozzie you get on that fucking phone to Razor and YOU FUCKING CONCEDE.



    FFS YOU MAY AS WELL GO LOOK FOR KEITH MURDOCKS OLD HUT IN THE OUTBACK AND FUCKEN STAY THERE FOREVER YOU HOPELESS PLACID IDEA-LESS GRAVY TRAIN F***********

    New Zealand looking fragile this year. Sure they won two games well, but they led them from the get go. Whenever they've actually been tested, they've failed.

    You could make a strong case when Ledesma left the Aus set-up Aus got worse.

    Cheika and Ledesma forming quite the partnership.

    I think we need to adopt some short kicking to get around them.

    Yeah. Fozzie's slap the Argentineans to rattle their discipline is up there with Richard Graham's kick the ball so the crowd will boo in terms of wank chops tactical decision making.

    I'm going all Shiggins here but god Gardiner's refereeing at the breakdown made my teeth grind.

    Meantime Argentina's decision making was excellent, drawning 4+ ABs at a time. It basically forced NZ to keep going hammer ball or giving it to the pods, playing into the Argies' hands etc etc

    I'm waiting for the day a kiwi, any kiwi will give team that totally outclasses the All Blacks in every facet of play the credit for a win. Not just aw shucks, we played shite.

    That was a proper test match. There were virtually no try scoring opportunities in the entire match. Time in the oppo 22's was what, a couple of minutes for each team?

    It seemed like the NZ players were "trying" but were not at all confident as to what the game plan was. Or even if there was one besides run it up at them and they'll fold and quick ball and unleash the backs and boomfa. When it didnt work at the coalface they... just kept trying to do it because there was no plan B.

    That is fucking garbage coaching.

    Establishes the blueprint to beat these AB's. Slot your kicks. Stop them at the coalface and make your tackles. All of them. That's all Argentina did and all they had to do against the pre-programmed automatons that disgraced the black jersey today.

    Except they have heaps of gas, they haven't played all year. Confidence and momentum go a long way in sport. Write the Pumas off at great peril, the Kiwis did. Remember the recent losses we had to them?
