We had Kiwi commentary which was appalling, so biased and incorrect. And read this morning that they were using a "new ball". Does that account for Jonny's inability to score? The Kiwi commentators mentioned nothing about the new ball... pfffft.
The thing that pissed me of about the commentary was that when the ref had something quite lengthy and interesting to say (helps one understand the rules better) the commentators just kept going on and on and on...Ariston?

Looks like the rugger buggers have taken a leaf out of the footballer's "England At A World Cup" guidebook.

Wobblies game is live I think, not sure I'll get to watch it, I was out all yesterday afternoon/evening on the booze so some housework needs to be done to redress the balance if I'm a hope of watching the F1 later

Plan B: As above.

Surprisingly this time I'm not receiving the world feed commentary, just local Kiwi comms aided by the likes of Smithy & Grant Fox - let's see how hard they are on the Aussies today.

I thought they were fair during the Argentina match.

Which channels in Oz are showing, Foxtel plus which other?

Channel 9 ... The "Home Of The Queensland Bulls" apparently, never actually seen them on Channel 9 but there you go ...

Are they playing with the same shaped ball that England had a go with?

I think I'm too stressed (after the English match) to watch anymore today. Think I'll have a lie down.
