    Default The better team of the day loses again!

    Wales Vs France

    Wales - 8
    France - 9

    I wanted the French to win.
    But the Welsh surely deserved to win.
    Yet another disappointing 'the better team of the day loses' scenario.

    It was South Africa Vs Australia all over again.

    No, no, you have to think of the big picture here.

    Australia isn't going to beat the All Blacks and Wales has NO chance against them, where as France does.

    SO, in order for a team other than NZ (boring) to win, you need to have a team who has a chance of beating them. Like France. It makes for a more interesting World Cup.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    That game was TOTAL BS! It sickens me that France won that.

    God knows why any ref would hand out a red card in a finals match (or anytime really) without ABSOLUTE certainty that the player acted with malice. This is especially pertinent after what happened at the last World Cup. What a way to ruin the game and undermine the result entirely . Wayne Barnes is currently welcoming Alain Rolland to the despised ref club.

    Poor Wales!

    Edit -

    Sorry, I misread your post.

    NZ are the best Rugby team in the world. Sadly they have only won one world cup.
    But then again, France has been in two world cup finals (this being the 3rd) has never won a world cup.
    The French are the Dutch (in football) and the English (in Cricket) of Rugby world cup finals.

    So I would like to see the Kiwis beat the Aussies, but wouldn't care who wins the finals if the Kiwis get through.

    Go Wallabies.

    Wish they had a split screen during the haka.

    Go black! This game answered so many questions.

    1. The stage is not too big for Cruden.

    2. This loose forward trio is the best in the world.

    3. I'm not very good at making lists.

    OMG! NZ is in the final!

    The ABs played incredibly well! I was so frickin' scared before the game that they would choke and the Wallabies would crush them.

    A noble effort by the Aussies. It's a travesty that France made the final and Australia didn't.
