  • Speaker: Players to Pray For,

    And yes, I think the All Blacks will run right over France in Cardiff. It won't even be close. Apart from the relative merits of the two teams on the field, there will be the crowd.

    I'm very nervous about playing the RWC hosts, especially after seeing the crowd up in Edinburgh. Despite the tide of black heading to the game, there seemed to be more French than there were of either Scots or Kiwis. And they definitely know how to cheer for les Bleus, and know the words to La Marseillaise inside-out and backwards!

    When it comes to the crunch, les Bleus know how to lift their game, and there's no bigger deciding match than against the ABs in the quarters.

  • Southerly: Late for What?,

    I'm all for original names, to a point. It does get confusing when there are 31 Daves or Davids at my (admittedly large) work. I did a quick check and there are 33 Steves, 24 Andrews, 17 Richards, Pauls and Chris/Christines and in my department of 10 people there are 3 Catherines.
