So very southern Hemisphere. Bleurgh.

We'em be supporting the best team and all the teams from now on in, being rugby fans n'all. Bit tough trying to support the ABs though, given what is pouring in our ears daily. It seems the NZ'ers are actually betting on the Aussies though.

Heading to Caulfield for a day at the races then down to The Station in Prahran for the rugby. The Station is probably the only pub in Melbourne that has shown every RWC game live, even on AFL grand final day. Should be a cracking atmosphere!

Hoping for a Wales v Australia final

My Kiwi FIL says a lot of NZers want the aussies to win as they like their coach and think he should have been coaching the all blacks. I find the bit about wanting aussie to win rather hard to believe.

I think they have a better run against the southern hemisphere nations...but I'm still going to go with the home nations....plus it'll make the 6Nations more interesting, when we win it, again.
