Just got the chance to write this blog as I’ve got a bit of spare time. Sunday’s game was awesome – well the All Blacks were.
The Haka always gets the hairs on the back of my neck standing on end, but the play shortly afterward kept them there. The All Blacks were simply outstanding – right from the kick off they were showing their superiority and the pressure showed with Quade Cooper making dubious kicking decisions.
Over the weekend he must have thought it would be better to perhaps not have picked the Wallabies instead of this home country. The intensity and the physicality was at some points jaw dropping and in one instance I had to replay a couple of hits just to see the impact.
However, none, in my humble opinion, match this one that Chabal is famous for against Amon Armath.
No doubt the final will see New Zealand show their superiority again but they have been known to bottle it before.
Here’s to the weekend!
