Re: Rugby Union 2013 Thread

All Blacks won against France with a much improved performance in Christchurch last night, 30-0 at full time, the first time we've held the French scoreless in 53 tests, apparently. Three tries were scored, the second, from a charged-down drop goal attempt just after half time, was certainly the most satisfying, and both second half tries were started from well inside the All Blacks' half. One test left against France, and I wouldn't be surprised if they came out guns blazing this time after the media has written them off, again. Did they learn nothing from the 2011 World Cup final? All in all a very satisfying test for this Kiwi, only areas I would still like to see improvement in are ball security - the French pilfered away all game - and handling, it actually could have been even more of an embarrassing scoreline for Les Bleus as we bombed at least two more try attempts.

Also watched the Waratahs take on the Lions last night, 17-47 to the home team, and the final score favours the Lions as the Waratahs were very much in the game for the first hour or so, not bad for what was admittedly the Waratahs 'B' team!
