    Go Kiwis :smile: great start to the real sporting deal this year.

    Obviously Wales will win this tournament like every one before, but I would like to thank everyone else for turning up and making it so much fun. :biggrin1:

    Wales Japan did the best of the Minnows week one, i think
    all did well tho, gave the top teams a good shake up
    if not a decent training session ie gave many of them the shits

    has been a success from the outset mateys..
    country & vistors ALl enthused
    Have to praise the Aussie organizers for the opening ceremony.


    Go Wallabies GO' ha

    NZ Culture
    70s-80s when a Local Dairy Factory in Patea shut down.
    Performed in the vacant premises

    Same region ofTaranaki where
    USA 13 vs Russia 6 played in the City of New Plymouth last night
    Russia performed Very Well considering it was there first everTest at a RWC.
    Canada beatingTonga (25-20) the previous night was a first for a supposed Minnows team.
    ALL enjoyable listening ...like ye ole days ha

    These not so well known teams appear to be much more enthralling.

    Did the US notice that they had beaten Russia?

    I find the US soccer and rugby teams great ambassadors for their country.

    Japans 7
    far more impressive to me..
    than the ABs rampant scoring
    So they SHOULD have a high score.....or even Higher than that

    see how methodically the Wallabies dispatch there adversary tonight.

    You didn't deserve the Wales game, but it looks like business as usual against Fiji. I'm not putting my money on the Boks. We'll see.
