LETS GET IT STARTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!​

My last pre match predictions.

This game wont be a blow out. it will be within a 4 point difference, theres too much pride in this kiwis team to be blown out so take that out of the books right now.

We will live and die by this team selection, as fans we just have to trust our team and trust in the coaching staff.

THe game i believe will come down to one on one match ups but the units will make the most impact.

The forwards must live up to what people have been saying that this is the best pack, they got shown up last week but they have one last chance to prove a point.

The right edge will need a huge night, shaun sbw whare and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, we need points down that side,

Big games from everyone but mostly these people - Foran, Manu, Luke, SBW, these guys must step up.

Defensively we must contain Parker, he does the cheapo offloads when he turns his back into contact then offloads, needs to be wrapped up. I believe the centres have to prove themselves, i want our wings hanging on their man, live and die by the centres making one on one tackles.

Bench must make an impact.

NO errors, get into the grind, ride it out until they crack and they will, just keep it tight.

It will be a similar scoreline to last week, Kearney coached teams against the kangaroos struggle to score points so if we win it will be with 3 tries and a penalty, so im going 21-20 with kevin locke to get the winning drop goal with 2 seconds on the clock.

Lastly SBW, if you want to put your name into nz sporting legend and with your face on the mount rushmore of kiwis all time greats, tonight is your night.


COME ON KIWIS!!!!!!

The Aussies will be all up in the business of the right edge. Shaun Johnson, SBW, Whare and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will be wrapped up, but it will leave Manu, Goodwin, Mannering and Foran the space to play. SBW will contain Inglis, but will only be able to play a defensive game because of it. Goodwin will stun us by handling the Hayne Stain, and Taylor will outplay Parker. Our FB will play the flair while theirs struggles to contain us. Our big boys will be unstoppable, giving Luke the platform to show Smith how we roll. Our bench will be the icing to our World Cup cake.

We will have the ascendency the whole game, and they will throw everything at us but fall short. There will be no disputing the winners. There will be no miracle play to win this. We will lead from start to finish, and their best won't be good enough to bring us back. But it will be close through-out the game.

The best Australian team EVER will again be undone by the underdog.

Worried about Taylor, Goodwin and Whare on Inglis in those matchups. even their bench looks better than i thought

I'd feel a lot more comfortable with:

11. Glenn
12. SBW
13. Mannering

17. Eastwood

And I'm not just hating on Taylor, but when it comes up to a selection like Taylor vs. Eastwood vs. Glenn for two spots - I know which one I'm choosing. I would have perhaps dropped FPN, but with Pritchard out that's not really an option.

fpn has been one of our best imo. he has been able to make the hard metres better than jwh and kasiano i reckon

i reckon they should bomb boyd early and have manu destroy him when he hits the ground (if they are on the same side of the field)

imo boyd is a cocky fuk who doesnt react well when things arent going his way, hit him shoulder to head, body on body, put the arms out to make it look legit

Australia's sense of entitlement is sickening. "We are the best playahs EVAH! and it in not fair we didn't win last time so it is our turn now!" Fuck off you Aussie turnips!

I hope we get them to that place where we see the fear in their eyes. I can't wait!!

My players to watch out for , Elijah Taylor will cut in off Johnson and surprise everyone with one of his Try's.
Frank Paul will storm over under the posts and go close to bagging two...held up over the line.

Dean Whare and Sonny will rip Australia apart in the same vien that Richie Blackmore and Mcraken did all those years ago....Williams will be heavily marked and inspite of this he will fend two and shrug one off.

Bryson Goodwin will score the winner diving on a Foran Kick in the in goal.


That's the dream...the reality is I am praying that the Kiwis play fast. Aussie always used to face us at two different speeds , their fast pace and our slow speed.

They don't cope when we play fast right back at them.

Note the gold colour for the Kiwis and the silver for Aussies. Hopefully an omen...[DOUBLEPOST=1385820512][/DOUBLEPOST]

I'm picking an early try to Aussie from a classic blackline move. Then a hard fought first half where Aussie are up three tries to two. Then NZ comes back with three unanswered tries to win, after another early Aussie try after halftime. Tries include a Johnson special, a Locke offload, a SBW line break and a Mannering try assist.

Nice find bro.....good to see Awen take the lead in the build up , he's inexperienced but doesn't need the theatrics because he's played !
