It wasn’t so much the loss, as the way the All Blacks lost that made last night’s Rugby World Cup semi-final such a disappointment.
Last week the team was on fire against Ireland, last night they looked like they’d lost their spark.
My heart has been backing Wales to win this evening but I’d rather face them than South Africa in the Plate match for third so might have to go with my head.
In other news North Otago won the Meads Cup, and this afternoon the Silver Ferns will be doing their best to beat the Diamonds in the deciding match for the Constellation Cup.
The Silver Ferns 50 – 49 win over the Australian Diamonds, earned them the Constellation Cup and their first series win in eight years.
How did I manage to overlook the build up to yesterday’s series decider between the Australian Diamonds and the Silver Ferns?
Did I not notice the interviews with players and coaches, the commentary from experts, the media coverage of fans who were travelling to support the team or how they’d be gathering to watch at home, or wasn’t there much to notice?
For the record, the Diamonds won the game 44-41 in Melbourne last night.
This was their second win in three matches which gives them the Constellation Cup.
That, following the Diamonds’ World Championship win last year takes them to the number one ranking.
