What better way to start a Saturday than with a Tri Nations deciding match between top opposition. And what a cracker of a game this should be with both teams eager to add another Tri Nations victory to their names.

The All Blacks, after losing to South Africa in South Africa last weekend, have come out with an almost completely changed team and will be at full strength to take on Australia in their own back yard. Richie McCaw is back to lead his team, and the magician that is Dan Carter is back in the pivot position to make Quade Cooper’s life hell again.

Quade had a torrid time against Carter the last time these two met in an international, somehow fading into the background as Carter player a truly magnificent game. This time Cooper and his team mates are on home soil and in the last match before the World Cup, will be eyeing a confidence breaking/boosting (depending which way you see it) victory here.

This game is a hard game to call, but I will have to say that my heart says that the Wallabies will surprise and take the Tri Nations title. The game kicks off at 12h00.

Australia: 15 Kurtley Beale, 14 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 13 Anthony Fainga’a, 12 Pat McCabe, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Radike Samo, 7 David Pocock, 6 Rocky Elsom, 5 James Horwill, 4 Dan Vickerman, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Sekope Kepu.

Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga’a, 17 Salesi Ma’afu, 18 Rob Simmons, 19 Ben McCalman, 20 Scott Higginbotham, 21 Luke Burgess, 22 Rob Horne.

New Zealand: 15 Mils Muliaina, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Zac Guildford, 10 Daniel Carter, 9 Piri Weepu, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (captain), 6 Adam Thomson, 5 Samuel Whitelock, 4 Brad Thorn, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Keven Mealamu, 1 Tony Woodcock.

Replacements: 16 Andrew Hore, 17 John Afoa, 18 Ali Williams, 19 Victor Vito, 20 Andy Ellis, 21 Colin Slade, 22 Isaia Toeava

  • The final round of the Tri-Nations – the decider for who wins the trophy although the trophy that really counts will be contested in about 2 weeks time, there is still a trophy to be won.

    Who do you think is going to win? I say New Zealand by 5.

  • @bergshark (Comment 177) : Going to be interesting to see what happens. Though I won’t be holding my breath.

    If it was someone in a Bok jersey doing the kneeing, I have no doubt a 8 week ban minimum would have been the result.

    But this being our conspiring antipodean inbred cousins, you never know. :twisted:

    So to summarise, I think it was intentional. But proving it is going to be tough.

    And kneeing someone in the head, or anywhere else, should be met with a very lenghty ban.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 202) : Only half watching, trying to watch the Kwasse & Staat at the same time. :mrgreen:

    But seems to be your typical northern hemisphere game.

  • NZ fans must be so damn anxious now… The pressure will feel like mountains on the backs of the players. There were definitely some poor selection calls made, Thomson imo played his way out of the jersey… Kaino is a valuable player, don’t think he’ll be dropped again… Hosea Gear was missed today, he must be shattered… But, one thing, I love the passion, the team vibe and energy the Aus team has, far more approachable and fun team… Very connected to their fans… Bravo Australia, new skip Horwill – take a bow!
