Brave Blossoms yesterday, backing blue today

Headline of the day: Brave Blossoms no match for All Blacks.

Is this the first time in the history of the English language that that adjective and noun have been used together?

There was no surprise in the All Blacks win last night, but Japan deserves credit for improvement and it’s a good sign for rugby that the game  didn’t end up with a cricket score.

Today I’m backing blue again taking the Pumas in their game against Romania.

It’s a bit harder to choose between the Wallaibes and Ireland but I’ll go for our southern neighbours as I usually do unless they’re playing us.

I’m sticking with neighbours in the other game too, backing Fiji against the Springboks.

    Ele, what do you think of Argentina’s claim on the Malvina’s(Falklands)
    Was in Brazil about 25 years ago when some of those Argies tried to send three NZers back to the USA because they didn’t have correct documentation – a hang over from that stupid war.
    Argentina should be one of the wealthiest nations in the world but it still can’t get its act together. Corruption in the political gentry,like Mrs Kircher currently, find the nation a basket case.

    their scrum and lineout was pretty good so a worry for us.

    What is a Cricket score Ele, New Zealand were skittled for 26 when I was a lad.
    They turned it around soon after and beat the West Indies for their first Test win.
    The Japanese were still competing at the end and showed improvement in that the number of foreign born were fewer.

    I wonder where rugby will be in 10 years when the financial resources of Russia and Japan start to kick in, they will have Talent scouts watching Interschool Rugby If they are not already.

    Neil – that’s a complex situation and I don’t know all the history. It’s not just about the land but potential oil reserves.

    Whatever the rights and wrongs the people who live their generally feel more positive towards Britain than Argentina.

    Cricket scores can vary GD but when applied to rugby it usually means more than 100.
