Backing winner to lose later

The Silver Ferns beat England 53-32 in Invercargill last night.

The Black Sticks beat the Kookaburras 3-0 in Hobart.

Here’s hoping the All Blacks give us a third international win tomorrow (difficult as I find it to say that when they’ll be playing Argentina).

Tonight Ireland meets Wales in Wellington and England meets France in Auckland in the first two quarter final rugby World Cup games.

The winner of these matches play each other in next week’s semi-final and the winner of that will meet the strongest Southern Hemisphere team in the final.

I don’t have an emotional attachment to any of the four remaining Northern Hemisphere teams.

I’ll be backing a winner to lose when it gets to the final where all fingers and toes crossed they will . . .  no I can’t bring myself to write it in case it doesn’t happen.
