22 phases leading to the last NZ try. What is the record...must be close. Pete :cheers:
Can't answer that one, but being a Welshman, I do know that the record for us repelling/defending a try was against Ireland and that was 32 phases...

That was something, wasn't it :clap: :clap: :clap: SAF vs ARG later on may be a yawn in comparison, but maybe not. :D Pete :cheers:

^ Seems the weather's been crazy all around - the south of the UK (Cornwall) was hit with huge floods recently also.

Anywho, back to rugby! :thumb:

The Rugby Championship is comming up again in some 4 weeks or so :dance: , and as such I've started (yet) another HHF Pool! :oops: All those who played previously should have been invited by Email, but if not, and for those who have not played previously, but are interested - details below: -

http://www.superbru.com/rugbychampionsh ... p=11724875

Pool name: HHF Rugby Championship 2017

Pool code: yenshuff


:cheers: :cheers:
OMG, I've just realised I wasn't entered into the pool - at least it's given a few of you a head start :wink:
League 1 - Plymouth Argyle....0 Portsmouth....0 :dance: :dance:

Points 64; Position 6

^ Christ, sorry BB - so used to you being in the pool I hadn't noticed...... :oops:

Had you actually applied? Couldn't see anything on SB.....

Yes, but it didn't happen - I guess I should have checked. It was only when I received this week's reminder that I decided to check my pool position - I wasn't there :cry:

Today's Round #3 matches. (Your Time) equals Thai time. Both games should be on Setanta, True channel 669. The SAF vs Australia match may be the better of the two, if Australia still has the fire they had against NZ.

What's becoming apparent to me is that every match is no longer a walk in the park for the All Blacks. They're the benchmark and every team that plays them seems to have greater motivation and another gear they don't usually have. I don't know what their schedule holds after this Championship but I would expect much of the same when playing some European teams. The games are decided after 60 minutes and that's good for rugby, and great for us spectators. :D Pete :cheers:

I agree, but they are still the only side able to find that little extra something when all is not running smoothly.

They head to the northern hemisphere in November, disappointingly not to play England though. :(
They play Barbarians (in London), France, Scotland and Wales. :cheers: :cheers:

Ps, congrats on the share of the wooden spoon in this game week :thumb: :laugh:

Frightening, absolutely frightening....... :shock:

8 tries (4 in each half), 57 points to NIL! :shock: The Jarrpies absolutely destroyed by the Blackness in the heaviest defeat in their history.

After the 1st 10-15 minutes or so, far and away from the result I was expecting. The AB's making uncharacteristic errors, the Bokkes pack seemingly well on top certainly in the tight. Then it all changed...... The AB's got into their stride (and how :bow: ) the Bokke lineout was somewhat of a disaster area and the AB's simply pounced on each and every error......

Yet another Championship title coming up...

I'm sure that England play NZ at Twickenham on 10th November 2018. The BBC say so anyway.

They steamrolled the Boks, and the best ref in the world had nothing much to do, but let's see how they do north of the equator.

Probably steamroller the Baabaas, Scots, Welsh and the French too. :wink: :mrgreen:
