    None of it. Even though you guys beat us much more often than any other team except Japan, I always look forward to NZ-SA games much more because AB fans don't tend to get as cocky and rub it in our faces as much as other teams' fans do - there is respect to both sides.

    And calling the All Black camp arrogant at the moment is delusional.

    It'll save me from your miserableness for sure, that's all that matters.

    OK. I'm a homer. Still don't pretend to understand what it means, though I get the condescension.

    Just looking at that AB's side - one thing that both teams this weekend have had through the tournament is a consistent first choice lineup, with both teams only having forced changes at LH prop.....

    Must be one of the easiest to pick AB sides ever.

    All Blacks outlook has gone from modest to smug. Its a statement of observation

    I try, but so far can only knock out sardonic facial hair.
    Ain't getting inked.

    Same for the Wallabies barring fitness concerns.

    From a neutral perspective I'd say it's going equally both ways.

    Agreed. If Sio and Izzy are fully fit then they'll start. The rest of the team picks itself and so does the bench. Let's just hope it's enough.

    Seriously? Most Aussie fans are claiming parity at best.

    I'm probably one of the most optimistic Aussies, and I've continually said that New Zealand's a better team, and that if we win, it'll be against the odds.

    Unless even the contemplation of Oz winning is "smugness". :rolleyes:

    None of the players are. But Hansen.....yes. He needs to be reminded of how he went in Wales from time to time.
