The Rugby World Cup 2015 Pools drawn and IRB awards given

You can consider a lot of teams as TBC.
Ireland is finally starting to bleed new promising young players into the national team, for instance.
And if you compare the French group from the last RWC and the group for the nov12 tests a good one year later, you have 20 players from the RWC group who are not in the Nov12 group; because they retired from international duty (Bonnaire, Servat), or they're injuried (Dusautoir, Medard, Palisson, Harinordoquy...) or for some reason.
Add to that the teams in progress like Argentina (thanks to the Rugby Championship) and Samoa (thanks to their players playing in Europe).

In short, it's unpredictable at the moment.

Ca te derange d'ecrire en anglais, meme si c'est pour dire que le lien que tu proposes est en francais ?
Je suis evidemment d'accord avec Raoulito, la personne qui a ecrit ce blog n'a pas l'air de connaitre les competitions de haut niveau.

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

Pretzel:
"I feel sorry for the next team that has to face NZ, I fear that they will feel the full brunt of an angry NZ team looking to get back on a winning streak, albeit next season. "

Don't say that to me :) If the June tests are the next international games, they have France in Eden Park as their first match.

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

Sure, i agree with that. I was not thinking about the bout of illness. I was thinking about all the talking about Richie McCaw last game before his 6 months off, and the record of (matches) wins in a row. I believe they were thinking too much and England caught them cold.
That's not usual for an AB team to miss 16 tackles, for instance.

The great thing about this result is also that every team now is going to improve, like Leadbitter said.

Sure, I didn't mean to undermine England win. It's just i'm feeling it this way. But that removes nothing from England great performance.

Get over that finale, please ! It was more than one year ago and French website Le Rugbynistere has an analysis which proved Joubert was not one-sided, he made mistakes against both teams equally. Analysis validated by the now world boss of the referees, the French Joel Jutge.
And yes, i'm French too.

Congrats to England, although i think it's more an All Blacks defeat than an England victory (if that make sense to you).

RFU Championship XV vs Maori All Blacks Highlights - November 2012

Browner, where are you from ? Don't you know there're several Hakas in the Pacific Islands ?
This one should be the Timatanga.

KIA WIRI!

KIA TINA!
Tina!
Hui e!
Taiki e!!

I TE T?MATANGA
KO TE KORE*
Ko Te P?-nui
Ko Te P?-roa

Aue, aue, aue, hi!

Start quivering your hands!
Stand sure,
Be firm!

Get together!
Intermesh with each other!

In the beginning
there was nothingness,
then great dark forms
in the long night.


The separation of our parents**
The binding together of mankind
Young warriors
Noble warriors

Aim for the mountain
to arrive at the plain,
and also for the sky
to arrive at the hilltop


Keep on climbing
via the pathway of wisdom,
to achieve excellence
spiritually,
mentally,
physically.
