Richie McCaw knee on Morgan Parra, Donald kick, Rougerie eye-gouge, and more

If NZ deserved to win the cup because of form then why bother having the final at all? We in Europe could have stayed in bed. Aaron Cruden's knee would still be intact and the Kiwis could have engaged in their onanistic orgy a week early.

What part did didn't you like about Bryce's reffing? The bit where JP Pieterson puts JOC off his kick by charging early and Lawrence ignoring it? The bit where Bismark charges down QC's drop out, crosses the 22 as part of the charge down and Lawrence fails to ping him for being offside? The part where Burger repeatedly rakes Pococks face and nothing is done? The bit where South African players repeatedly went off their feet and nothing was done?

Lawrence was poor but he missed crucial calls for both sides.

SA have lost to Australia 6 of the last 7 times mate. If you can't win with 70% possession then that isn't the ref's fault.

Watch from about 2:10:00 onwards... http://www.itv.com/itvplayer/video/?Filter=283295

Half way through the interview the crowd arcs up and Desautoir is drowned out.

At about 2:11:00 onward, Steve Rider notes Desautoir's dignified manner in contrast to the massive circle jerk going on in the background.

I don't know if you can access ITV player, it might now be available to people outside the UK

Kick was in.

McCaw was probably negligent but no less guilty of recklessness than, say, Warburton. Yet Queen Ruchie doesn't even get a reprimand.

Rougerie needs to watch himself and probably lucky not to have been cited.

Joubert's refereeing of the breakdown, in particular, was appallingly one-sided. He reffed Pocock out of the SF while ignoring Queen Ruckie's blatant indiscretions. Re: the 50/50 calls, Lawrence Dallaglio made the exact same point several times while calling the game for ITV UK.

The haka fine is a joke. It seems that post-colonial guilt complex is well and truly entrenched at the IRB.

Rugby dump is impartial.

A couple of other points:

Quade Cooper has an air of arrogance, yes, but the treatment dished out by the Kiwi media and the droves of Kiwi drone bogans was absolutely disgraceful. The fact that it culminated in cheers and hisses when QC busted his knee was both appalling and unsurprising given the level of hate being whipped up.

Richie McCaw's and Graham Henry's victory speeches both failed to mention the French or any other team in the tournament. It smacked of a total lack of grace and complete arrogance. The decision by the ABs to perform a haka while Desutoir was being interviewed was the cherry on the icing on the cake of self-absorption.

I will never support the All Blacks in any game, ever again and that includes ones involving...urgh...England. They and their fans are arrogant, ungracious winners and even sorer losers.

Radike Samo's big hit on Bryan Habana in RWC Quarter Final

Bitter Zandberg? There's not a single ounce of dirtiness about Samo's play, ever.

If your boys have 70% possession and cannot put away an opposition than there's only one to blame and it ain't the ref.

If you all want to start talking about dirty play, why don't you go and watch Schalk's ophthalmological work on Pocock's face starting at 57:10 and lasting for about 15 seconds....

Bryce was rubbish but it was bipartisan rubbish. Learn to accept the ref's call, it's part of rugby. Otherwise go and play soccer.

Rugby World Cup Daily - Wallaby rout

Give yourself an uppercut mate. Yes, I'm serious. Replace two (yes, two) backs with a seven and another back.

Bad luck for Horne and McCabe. If either get sent home and Deans doesn't call for Beau Robinson or Matt Hodgson, it'll be concrete proof that he works for the NZRFU. The decision not to take a specialist backup #7 to a RWC is possibly the most stupid squad selection decision I've ever seen. It'd be like a national soccer side turning up to the soccer world cup without a spare goalkeeper.
