    How about this.
    Scores tied at full time.
    Ten minutes of extra time. 1 try apiece.
    Ten minutes of Sudden death. No points scored.
    Kicking competition. Carter, Barrett, SBW, Fekitoa, Foley, Beale, AAC and Giteau all slot theirs.
    Last players up, Charlie Faumauina knocks his over, winning the RWC for NZ and instantly becoming a rugby god to all front rowers everywhere, for all time.
    To be fair, I would be a gibbering mess if it came down to a kicking duel.

    Woah, I had to have a sit down after reading that. What was he thinking writing that.

    HA! If Charlie Faumauina wins it with a dropped goal I'll probably cheer too.

    What we don't want is a Dunning situation when either team is four points down at the death!

    If that's how it goes down I'll laugh ironically to myself and buy the nearest Kiwi a beer. You could pretty much stop playing RWC's after that, no way you could ever top it.

    Yeah it's not a great record but it's the second best record against the AB's (South Africa has the best).

    So using the same stats I can also tell you that both teams in the final are playing the team that they have their second worst loss rate against.

    NZ lose most frequently to:
    1. Sth Africa
    2. Australia

    AUS lose most frequently to:
    1. B&I Lions
    2. New Zealand

    You can use stats to prove anything. 27.5% of all people know that.

    It was so good though.it's what I'll console myself with if the All Blacks (sorry New Zealand) lose.

    Actually this game could unofficially decide both of those. Forgetting bonus points it's 1-1 in the Bledisloe and 4-4 in the RC (counting last week's games).

    Winner takes all!

    My productivity levels at work have plummeted in the last couple of days, i have clicked on the GAGR forums every 5 minutes just to check if there has been any update.
    I'm fairly sure I'm about to get a warning from IT about misuse of companies internet policy... I've just been summoned to their offices.

    Worth it.....
