Why oh why are we playing a 3rd v 4th in this day and age ??? Its humiliating to both countries and as meaningless as a 15th v 16th.Can't the IRB get the cash they're after in less obvious money groping ways ??

hope they choke against the Welsh as well!

you'd think that our little baby brother new zealanders would have a far better understanding of the word 'choke' than nec is exhibiting,let me help it's about the BETTER team on form and in roster losing with a bumbling performance thru lack of steel...remember now ?

Haha! What`s this I heard about Quade Cooper causing a tanker to crash in NZ? (lol!) I too think a 3rd place game is stupid. Might be a spirited game, and probably closer than the final, but who really cares!

What's that ya say aussie? dont ya like being labeled as chokers, keen to give it out but dont like being called it, the aussie team got choked by the all blacks, and the aussies choked last week end, deal with it, you're the chokers now .

GO WALES

You'll have every kiwi backing you on friday night boyo go for it.

I don't think Wales are playing New Zealand.

Aussie are this decade's chokers, that's for sure!

In London, they should ditch the Bronze Final, and instead play an all star game with players from different countries, coached by a guest coach. Winners get 30,000 dollars each, losers get nuthin. IRB is so boring for a professional sports organisation.

you kiwis get an idea about the meaning and symptoms of choke for goodness sake.. you just cant pass the word on like a relay baton...its either in your blood or it isnt..unfortunately you lot picked up the gene...1 win in 20 years doesn't cleanse your history of world cup humiliations..it's dormant ...till this weekend ? London ?It's there...

Yeah and aussie have choked for the last 25 years at eden park so whos the chokers then mate?

Aussie Aussie Aussie Choke Choke Choke

Oh and by the way isn't this game being played at EDEN PARK hahahaha even ireland thrashed the aussie chokers there lolololol

You'd think the aussies would have learnt some humility after last weekends through destruction at the hand of the all blacks, if the team that you call chokers demolished your aussie team like that what would that make the aussie team? WANKERS?

Hey EE nice trading sledges with you !.....This was the 1st time you've ever ,repeat ever,beaten Australia in a world cup game wasn't it ???I understand the pent up frustration that has suddenly found a release valve after all these years..don't lose sight of that whilst flapping the pie hole.. you really should wait a few more days as the French have pointed out you haven't won anything yet...ABs couldn't possibly choke again in a final.........thats all dead and buried ......right ?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

ee..demolished Australia ?? the best team in the tournament smashed us 1 try to 0 and a couple of dubious penalties..no doubt the best side won on the day but that 1 solitary try in 80 minutes says more about your inabilities than capabilities

0 ( +1 / -1 )

calm down

for sure mate nothing better than a bit of banter with an aussie speciall over rugby.

so in in the last 14 games aus and nz have played how many has aus won>? 2? we thrashed you ten in a row mate you keep banging on youve beaten us in all the world cups but thats in fact only 2 games.

How about we havent won the cup for 24 years but aus hasnt won at eden park for 25 years and not only have you lost every game there in the last 25 years the irish beat you there, man you must be sh!tting now its the welsh's turn to embarass you.

You're right we havent won anything yet except the semi final between aus and the ABs (Man that was great we'll take that as a world cup win if we lose to france haha) and watch on sunday you'll see the All Blacks win again, they'll go though this tournament (like a hot knife through butter) un beaten something you aussie boys no nothing of for years.

The most winningest sports team ever in the history of the world!!! Speaks for itself !

85% win record (all balcks all time ) is alot different from losing 12 out of 14 games mate. Keep it up I love the banter, watch the game on sunday, I will be , if we lose so be it but I think the odds on that are on the TAB or paddy power who has already paid out on the NZ team winning , hows that !

GO BLACK

actually in australia rugby is not a popular sport. It is probably ranked number 5 or 6 in terms of popularity, so for someone from New Zealand trying to prove how big they are it doesnt make much of an impact on most of the population.
