Love the look on Pocock's face every time he's been pinged by the ref for not being on his feet. It's as if he's filthy with the ref not letting him get away with Rugby Union murder like Lawrence did last week. Just goes to show what the difference is when you have a semi-decent ref. He should have been done for that at laest half a dozen times against the Boks and got away with all of them.

I am enjoying this. Not sure how the Aussies are only a try and penalty behind.

Well done NZ...hope they go on with it. NZ seemed professional but slightly subdued...not the awesome running/passing rugby I'm used to seeing from them...have they played like this the whole tournament?...hopefully they bring it out more in the final.

Woohoo, the Aussies weren't even on the same planet in that game. If England couldn't win it then the All Blacks were second best. I hate choosing when those 2 play

The way they started was great. It got them a try and put the Wallabies in their place. From then on it was containment and make the Wallabies make mistakes.

I did enjoy Cooper getting smashed at the end.

Well Done NZ!!!

As the team said in the studio, the score line flattered the Wallabies.

They were out of it.

I missed the first half, sounds like I missed the best bit.

On another note the commentary was a bit flat. Used to be far better with whats his name on the other channel. C9 should stick to league.

The first half was non stop and far better than most of the 2nd. I watched about 20 minutes on 9 then just had to switch to Foxtel, it was shocking.

They were shocking. Many reckon 9 bought the rights to stop leagues rating decline.

Lucky for the Aussies Dan Carter wasn't playing, it would have been 40-6 or worse.

Wonder if Channel Nine will even bother showing the finals.

It's probably the defining factor of this whole world cup, total lack of consistency by the refs, shame really
