The All Blacks crush the Wallabies in Bledisloe One in Sydney

ABs will also be concerned that they conceded 29. Last year they turned around a 27-19 win in Sydney and pulled off 22-0 in Auckland the next week. They'll need to be more careful about their kickable penalty count and clean up the malfunctioning line out.

McKenzie may be glad to get his two AB games out of the way early in the honeymoon then build for the next twelve months.

Chris Masoe finds new role as touchjudge after assistant ref injury

Oh I love rugby. Assistant ref goes down with a nasty injury and still walks off. Not sure about that medic though, supporting him on the wrong side, looked painful.

The Top 5 Finals Moments of All Time

I actually really like all of the extra non-rugby moments. Everyone complaining that Jonny's 2003 droppie wasn't included is missing the point. Buzzer beaters happen all the time, exciting but not necessarily as quirky, interesting or rare as a swarm of bees, random fog, a drop-goal off or a nation united. #2 was obviously just there for the Aussies.

Anyone missing Jonny's goal can go watch the buzzer beaters vid again

The Magic Of Bledisloe, featuring the George Gregan miracle tackle in 1994

Nice tackle but even better...

I'm only 6 years late but that link above about Gregan ruining Jeff's holiday is sooooo effing funny. My girlfriend raced into the room thinking I was having a seizure

Schoolboy suffers horrific double break below the knee - Injury update

Get well mate. A friend of mine had the same injury in school, playing soccer of all things. He was eventually back on his feet and became a pro cyclist. Don't let this stop you!

Crusaders look ahead to another Semi Final after crushing the Reds

Please don't paint us all with the same brush. Plenty of Kiwis are embarrassed by the booing, me being one of them, and I'm in good company with RM, DC, and Israel Dagg

Crusaders look ahead to another Semi Final after crushing the Reds

Pedro it sounds to me like you're as cocky as you claim Cooper to be. How exactly would you expect him to earn your respect? It's been two years since he did anything wrong. Does he need to come around to your place and mow the lawns or wash your feet? Get over yourself.

We never heard years of booing for Bakkies, Hartley, Greyling, or Higgenbotham, or Mealamu, Thomson or Hore for that matter. Why Cooper? He screwed up, we let him know about it, time to move on.

And btw, we usually call the other team the "opposition" rather than the "enemy".

Rene Ranger shows the finger after high tackle by Bundee Aki

Surely it wasn't aimed at the touchie on the far side. It happens before we even know it's just a penalty and no card so why would he flip him the bird?

Ok, lack of class or sportsmanship but maybe there's more to it than we know. Could be that there was already some niggle leading up to it. As long as it wasn't at the official then I don't think it's worth worrying about and certainly less of a concern than head high tackling.

Sharni Williams dubbed Woman of Steel after brutal double knock

Come on guys, give RD a break. There's a reason that we don't play mixed rugby and it's not to protect the men from the women. Maybe fairer s.e.x would sound better but probably wouldn't make it past the moderator

Wallaby skipper James Horwill cleared and free to play in deciding Lions Test

Even better than a panel, what about a jury of his peers? Oh and we could get a different celebrity each week on as the judge (do you think Mr T is available?), film it, and make it into a reality show so we have something rugby-related to watch during the week.

Sorry, not a very useful contribution, I got a bit carried away :)
