Not sure how many are interested but for those that are here is an opportunity to share your wisdom:P

Sep 15, 2023, 18:58

50 point win, anything less and I won't be happy.

Sep 15, 2023, 18:59

All Blacks by 60

Sep 15, 2023, 19:00

Hopefully showing cohesion and a strong forward pack.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:06

Wow, Roigard scores his second try and he's barely played.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:08

Abs playing in their 22 and of course there is a penalty.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:11

Well got the start we wanted.

Sti) not reading to much into a big win in this game.  Agree just win, need to show some cohesion and some smart rugby.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:12

Roigard for his second in this game and 3rd as an AB. Scrum looked really good!

Sep 15, 2023, 19:16

It's Namibia, you should win by a 100...

Sep 15, 2023, 19:16

Smart play from Roigard nice dummy

Sep 15, 2023, 19:16

LF is a threat if he's any where near the ball!

Sep 15, 2023, 19:17

Roigard is a poser...:angel:

Sep 15, 2023, 19:17

True Draad but the way we have been playing I will take 50

Sep 15, 2023, 19:19

The sooner fozzie fucks off the better as far as I am concerned 

Sep 15, 2023, 19:20

Pity we probably gonna get you in the quarters...would have preferred a Bok/Allblacks final.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:21

Good maul

Sep 15, 2023, 19:22

I think Maties 1st XV will probably put 20 on Namibia...

Sep 15, 2023, 19:23

Another technical problem in the lineout.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:25

Sorry to see a bad injury.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:35

DMac kicks arse!

Sep 15, 2023, 19:38

Wow! LF is a powerful guy with good moves!

Sep 15, 2023, 19:43

Slowing the game down, the usual tactic.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:50

Great skills from ALB

Sep 15, 2023, 19:51

mmm...not everybody plays it luke NZ likes to believe it should be played...and if you can't prevent Namibia from slowing things down, you've got problems...as NZ scores!

Sep 15, 2023, 19:53

Who said roigard looks like he has lead boots?

Nice try that

Sep 15, 2023, 19:53

Roiguard making a good break and McK takes it over for a try

Sep 15, 2023, 19:54

Nice try DMac...Roigard getting away with too much...

Sep 15, 2023, 19:55

All Blacks looking good. 

Yes it's only Namibia but they are playing with great accuracy in difficult conditions.

Think they'll get close to 100 here.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:55

No point to this game

Namibia and Romania don’t belong in this comp

USA and Canada would have been better opponents

Sep 15, 2023, 19:56

Last week when he scored his try some said he was slow. He certainly has a quick brain. lol

Sep 15, 2023, 19:58

Considering the conditions we are showing good hands but like you say it's only Namibia  not reading to much into this.

Sep 15, 2023, 19:59

"USA and Canada would have been better opponents"

Then they should qualify next time.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:01

"He certainly has a quick brain. lol"

Not too sure about that...are we?

Sep 15, 2023, 20:02

"Considering the conditions we are showing good hands but like you say it's only Namibia  not reading to much into this."

Bit harsh on players like Fainganuku (sp?), Roigard and DMac who are all having blinders and could have played their way into the A team if it was against a stronger team.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:03

PS, he's probably better than I give him credit for...he's certainly got a nose for the try line...but I just don't see the "next big thing" angle...sorry.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:04

ABs are practicing getting the ball out wide and it's working thru kicks and skip passes but they don't have the pressure they will get from the top teams.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:05

Roigard is on steroids.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:06

Yes, the All Blacks are using the kick pass to catch the Namibians out of position. 

Sep 15, 2023, 20:06

Good to see we have some real talent coming through at 9, Roigard  and  Hotham look like good replacements for Smiths.

Pity Fainganuku is off to France  he has a big future in the ABS. Thankfully he only signed a 18 month contract. Expect him back in 2025

Sep 15, 2023, 20:07

Ja, the Desert Yarpies aren't a real measure...lots of heart, but not really top tier...still the score is lower than I would have guessed before the match.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:07

I think the ABs have to find a way to get Fainga'anuku on the field with the first team. He's got it all.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:12

We really need to stop giving away penalties, esp in their own half.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:24

Well you have your 50 Cruz.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:25

Good score!

Sep 15, 2023, 20:26

After watch this preformance from Namibia I am uping that to 80 lol

Sep 15, 2023, 20:26

Here's for hoping Nam can score 1 try...

Sep 15, 2023, 20:33

Roigard is not slow, it was the conclusion I reached watching him score that try against the Boks

He is big for a 9, not nippy but looks handy

Sep 15, 2023, 20:33

Bloody hope not 

Sep 15, 2023, 20:34


Sep 15, 2023, 20:35

Without a good 9 and 10 any team will struggle,  think we have got enough talent at 9, 10 is a major concern going forward.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:38


Sep 15, 2023, 20:47

Whats the verdict on de groots yellow/ red. Went to the bog and missed it

Sep 15, 2023, 20:47

A try here will taste like victory...

Sep 15, 2023, 20:49

probably red by the way things are going these days... not ideal...

Sep 15, 2023, 20:51


Sep 15, 2023, 20:52

good try, but NZ should put 100 on Nam every day of the week.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:53

another horse shit red.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:53

Let's hope the red card doesn't keep him out of two may games.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:54

Well, no injuries but the red card is like having an injury.

Sep 15, 2023, 20:56

Apart from the red (still waiting to see it) I will take that

Sep 15, 2023, 21:06

ABs don't need him before qters

Sep 15, 2023, 21:28

Metres gained: All Blacks 705 Namibia 195
Possession: 64% Namibia 36%
Territory: 46% Namibia 54%
Tackles: All Blacks 67/78 Namibia 113/156
Penalties conceded: All Blacks 12 Namibia 7
Turnovers conceded: All Blacks 13 Namibia 10

Abs need to play more in the oppositions half. When they don't the good team will punish them with penalty kicks. 12 penalties is way to high also.

Sep 15, 2023, 21:48

12 penalties is way to high also.

llongstanding AB flaw

Sep 15, 2023, 22:13

So the Rhoid had a good game?

Sep 15, 2023, 23:15

Ahem, roid had a great game??

Sep 16, 2023, 08:26

Yes when you have fair refs the ab penalty count always jumps! :'(

Unfortunately they   used to get away with murder in the Rugby Championshion.

Sep 22, 2023, 10:05

:D As usual Beeno tries to have the last word:D Don't know what you are talking about.
