It has to be pointed out that the 24 years drought was as a result of them not being very good :P

Just woke up from a very long night yesterday. What a close match !!

The atmosphere was awesome !!

After been here for almost a year now, I can really understand how the Kiwis felt with all the trials and tribulation that they have gone thru from Christchurch Earthquake to Pike River Mine Disaster , Albany's Tornadoes , Exceptional Wild Weathers and now the Rena's Oil Spill at Bay of Plenty , one can only sympathize and understand what does it mean to Win the Rugby World Cup after 24 years.
I have gone to all the AB and Wallabies matches. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The two months no pay from work was worth it. Every last penny of it.

Well Done All Blacks !!

Damn , had to go back to work at Christchurch next week .

Yeah I don't get it MS. The French have a record of being TOTALLY here or there. You never know if they're going to be 100-0 down or VV.

I only caught the game from the 2nd half. Can't say I found it that rivoting (I found the very open play of Aus vs the dogged mauling of Wales on Friday much more engaging)

p.s. the tournament should have been hosted by Japan and not NZ in my opinion. Old-boy back-scratching to the detriment of the game. What a shame...

For me the best game would be between Ireland vs Wallabies. Second would be Walabie vs Springboks, third would be All Blacks vs Wallabies. What a cracker on all these games!!
Yeah for the final, the players succumbed to the pressure winning the Cup after 24 years The French brought their playing boots that night. If not because of Piri Weepu missing the three penalty kicks, it should be a done deal before half time but yeah but if you had been here watching the game you can see live at Eden Park and feel the passion this country has on this game.
You have got to give it to the Kiwis. Their SAS soldiers killed in Afghan, their credit rating got slashed by Fitch, S & P and probably by Moody too, the Kiwis fruits infected by disease, Measles Outbreak in Auckland.
The bad news just keep on coming !!
How bad can it gets no one knows hence winning this cup is like a pressure release antidote. Very resilient and approachable people these Kiwis
A stadium of four million and a team of four million
