    Jesus.. just read Dwyers column. Week of a big game..Dwyer out right on cue to throw shit out of his adult diaper. When can we have Campo also write or say something ridiculous? It's just a churlish cheerleading at best, or simply whinging.

    Not sure what the message is? That pic of the All Blacks was taken after their loss in Sydney, when the Wallabies clinched the Rugby Championship.

    That NZ team is vulnerable at scrum time, at the breakdown where they lack mobility (relatively speaking) and a real jackal threat, and NMS under the high ball. I expect all will be targeted, but the breakdown is where we can have the most joy. The more phases NZ go through, the more likely of a turnover.

    Folau could be a game breaker and still want him in there even if he cant get off the ground as well pre-injury.

    Sio and Kepu really have the beating of the AB scrum. Re-watched the Bled 1 and we had them on toast. Not sure that Moody is much of a difference for them at all.

    Actually that makes more sense. It was in WR's interests for England to progress through as host nation, hence the extremely sympathetic scheduling. But once in the finals, there's no motivation to bias the result. It's not like they'd make more money out of an England win. The amount of money they make out of it is the same as long as England make the finals.

    We might have the upper hand in the scrum but they will do us in the lineout.

    They don't have an out and out fetcher but they do have forwards who are good over the ball. They actually pilfer more ball than we do. And I have never noticed a problem with their mobility.

    Sometimes I think all this guff about a deep and enduring respect between NZ and SA rugby would be different if there were 650,000 Kiwis living there and you were separated by a short flight.

    It's all a bit academic when Bokke and All Black fanboys are circlejerking on the Internet.

    Of course we respect the All Blacks. They are arguably the greatest sporting team in the world. Our (my) problem rests with the fans and I'm sure the sentiment is shared by my cousins across the ditch.

    No surprises in either team. Hopefully Sio isn't too undercooked, but I said that about Poey last week and look at his performance! Cane and Vito are some energetic fresh legs.

    I'd back both Sio and Folau to lift. If the ABs try to target Folau it could backfire immeasurably so I doubt it's on the cards.

    Interesting that the ABs are out to $1.47 on Betfair. It's predominantly UK money on there .
