    NZ to put 30 plus points past this over-rated Irish team…

    Geez some of those Samoan’s are looking a bit long in the teeth…

    Looking forward to seeing Hendrie Fourie play (having never heard of him and then seeing such glowing reports)… looks like a Tiaan Strauss/Wahl Bartman hybrid with the tutelage of the original open-sider Neil Back…

    16-all Wales/Fiji… with Fiji looking awesome ‘and’ with parity in the tight-loose and LO’s… they simply didn’t fade-away like they used to… and this in the NH… impressive stuff…

    Fiji held on for the last 20min but were blowing hard and the team was riddled with cramps etc.
    They did not even play well last night IMO but on their day IMO they can beat anyone.

    They held on… kept the Welsh score-less and then nailed the last 3 pointer… first half they looked a more rounded ‘test’ team than I’ve ever seen them…

    Could just be that Wales was hond-kak…

    Some might say a win is a win… but one was a narrow one against the 9th team in the world and another narrow one against a team that drew with the 10th team in the world…
