Some choice examples:

"James Pandaram if you were facing me on the rugby paddock and you made remarks like this into my face mate you better run away hard as all you stupid reporters do nothing positive to the Australian teams in any team sport. The ABs will play to the rules and do make mistakes also but do not remark on it to anyone after any game but look for positives ways to fix all mistakes. even if they lose. And that's how team sports is played mate not in a office making stupid remarks like you do here and other texts you have made in the past. So all I am saying may the best team win next weeks final of the RWC okay ?"

"mate. What is this article? Richie mccaw is amazing and forever will be known as one of the greatest rugby players cheats of all time.
NZ will win the world cup #gotheABS"

"Aussies are constantly slamming us for our amazing play in sports BACK OFF OR WE'LL KICK YOUR @$$ .. We've done it before.
Kiwis all the way"

Nah wrong thinking Sully as if you are 2nd best in the world you want to play against the best and believe you can beat them! We have a chance to beat the AB's and bring back the Bill.

Time to cut this sort of negative thinking and believe we can and will win the RWC..

Time for us Aussies to be more glass half full..
It's not negative thinking to acknowledge how good the New Zealanders are. In fact you'd be crazy not to. Of course I hope we win and I will be screaming as much as any of you. But they beat us more often than we beat them. That's a fact not negative thinking.

Start living in the real world. Acknowledge the mountain we have to climb, acknowledge how good the Kiwis are and if we manage to win it will feel even sweeter.

The contrast is striking.

To be honest, Bullrush, you're cherry-picking. It's commonplace to find sledging of Australian rugby in the New Zealand press. Look at the treatment of Quade Cooper. Both sides are equally bad.

Pandaram was making a joke. Some people didn't get it. Some people chose not to get it. Some people accepted the invitation to get wound up. Plus ça change.

I may of not read too much press at the time, but I recall the odd article about Cooper, but wasn't that stuff more "fan" (and I use that word in the faintest sense) driven? All the stupid booing etc.

Some of the OZ media/commentariat turned on him as well after the toxic comments and "facilities to facilitate" episode.

Anyway that's by the by. I wouldn't be reading too much into what most pundits are saying this week, it's the silly season turned up to maximum volume.

One area where the Wallabies will need to be accurate is the restarts. Probably the ABs greater comparative advantage. If the boys manage to catch it they'll need to be very careful with their pattern of taking it wide before Giteau or AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) kicks it, surely Hansen will have noticed this exit strategy.

The ABs also play a two-hit exit system from the deep kickoff, do they not?

i agree some witty banter is par for the course, but its getting f'ng tedious, "the my dicks bigger than yours" stuff.

I find the banter the best part, provided it's in the right spirit. Wittiness is in the ear of the beholder.

If people don't like the badinage then perhaps we need two threads. That's what Planet Rugby does, although the more serious spite there could never be posted here.

unfortunately perhaps getting to time for me to butt out of rugby forums for a few days, I find it ruins the enjoyment of coming in with all the rubbish!

yeah might have to take refuge in my Battered Foreign Prick Wife 3-Man Threesome Wife Shelter until the national sterotype bullshit abates a bit

Didnt sign up to a foreign prick rugby forum to deal with foreign pricks.




Haven't quite worded that right now have I.

Yeah, nah with regard to taking our cue from PR.
We'll have to live with not going feral.

Geez this thread contains some utter shite!
The All Blacks played 3 tier 1 nations en-route to the final. The average tier 1 ranking was 6. (3,7,8) The total average world ranking of all opponents was 10.8 (3,7,8,11,16,20)
Australia played 4 tier 1 nations with an average ranking of 6.75. (4,5,8,9) The total average world ranking of all opponents was 9.2. (4,5,8,9,10,19)
The above is based on ranking at the commencement of the RWC.
Pretty bloody similar if you ask me.
Both teams had their share of easy and tough games, admittedly at different stages of the tournament.
Both teams have played some fantastic rugby and the two best teams have made the final.
So FFS time to cut the pissing contest and talk rugby.
This forum is better than the last few days suggest.

Interesting numbers. 10.8 vs. 9.2 is quite a gap, actually. An average of 1.6 places higher per opponent, if I understand correctly.

Lies,damn lies, and statistics.
But their average tier 1 opposition was in the other direction by 0.75.
Their overall average was a lower ranking due to playing 16 and 20 whereas we played 10 and 19.
Their higher ranked opponents averaged more than ours and their lower ranked opponents lower.
Pretty even I'd say.
