By the way Mick, dont you think the All Blacks will bottle it again in the semi or final? The pressure and expectation is going to be MASSIVE and I think they’l miss Umaga’s leadership when it comes to the big crunch.
I can only assume this is meant to be tongue in cheek because surely everyone must be sick of saying (and hearing) the ‘same old shit’ comments like this one.
Tana was a fantastic captain but there are plenty of ‘leaders’ in the ranks. Both McCaw and So’oialo have shown their leadership abilities time and time again not to mention other players who would be just as good.
As far as cracking under pressure…You should check out Allblacks.com and look at the test match statistics. Although you will have to pull your head out of your arse to be able to see the screen.
Mick - Good to see you back! Will PM you soon.
Now i’ll let you get back to your 6 Nations ballet recital.[/quote]
Ha ha, Sounds like I hit a very raw nerve there!
I hereby promise to revoke all statements questioning the mental toughness, leadership qualities and bottle of the All Blacks Rugby team
once they actually win the world cup in France. Until then I reserve the right to wonder why such a talented rugby playing nation hasnt been crowned world champions for 20 years?
And I’ll enjoy watching you crack under the pressure again!
Billy Whizz is out of the game tomorrow unfortunately and is being replaced by Dave Strettle, what a game to make your debut in! I used to watch Dave regularly playing for Rotherham and am very excited to see how he gets on tomorrow. Big shame about Robinson though.
