[quote author=dallas alice link=board=general;num=1065599532;start=15#24 date=10/13/03 at 14:43:43]this is a shitty situation - in addition many world class players from places like fiji cant afford to loose pay from their western clubs if they elect to play in this tournament. many more are poached by the likes of australia and NZ and givin citizinship if they take up nationality and play for em. <br> [/quote]<br>Yer right mungo, life sucks for the islanders. The IRB is a bunch of toothless wimps who wont stand up to the euro clubs, even though they have the rules in place.<br><br>With the many millions they make, they could easily compensate the poorer island nations, or pay their players, so they dont have to pass up playing in the cup.<br><br>As usual, the rich get richer, the poor get the picture.<br><br>Anyway, i'll have a bet with you. I bet england beat south africa by more than 10.<br><br>are you on?

I enjoyed Japan v Scotland too. The most impressive team is England I think. Only NZ can beat them. Maybe France but it's unlikely  :-/

What a shame :'( Even Vanuatu and Fiji received radiation and they are very far from Polynesia. The jerks who decided nuclear tests would be done in these atolls should be prosecuted. Well the survivors, because de Gaulle, Pompidou, Mitterrand are dead. Is the word "sorry" appropriate?<br>And the Rainbow Warrior... a man died because an idiot thought Greenpeace was loaded with KGB spies.<br>Our politicians are hopeless. Chirac should be in jail. There are many reasons for this.

It was sad to see Umunga (one of my favourite player's) go down in the first round. Italy really had a taste of the 'mongrel' in that game.  (Good Stuff!)<br> We are still waiting on Mauger and where he stands in th back line...<br> Option's there...<br><br> As to Fiji imports...Rocokoko , has been a NZ citizen since he was 5..(and now they want him back?)<br> I genuinely thought ,Georgia had a great game against England,they're paid miniscule amount compared to there conterparts..but they still show up and play with huge hearts..<br>The French..well, they be my 'untoosure' card...,will they or wont they?...futhermore ,..in Pasifika.., we never forget.<br> This week , the Pom's and Boks will know a little more,which brings us to our host's...<br><br><br> Go Ireland..<br>Image<br> <br>

Its de rigeur for any self-respecting country to do so. Nuclear testing in the Pacific and Rainbow Warrior are a big part of it. Luckily though, we don't include you in these festivities of bile. You and your family are cool with us.  ;D<br><br>But mungo, while the engish will do well, they wont win the cup. They've shot their wad already. They always peak between cups. All Blacks are my bet, unless my mob improve dramatically, which needs a couple of team changes for that to happen, but Eddie's not listening.<br><br>Gregan should be dropped for Whittaker, and Turinui needs one of the centre positions. But will they listen to me? Noooo.<br><br>Its a bummer about Umaga stride, you're right. A great and exciting player.

bernie - the blacks have a few players of individual brilliance who cant be betterd while the whole england team play as a unit and any one of em can play in  in any position - might as well take the numbers off their shirts. it will be a close thing if those 2 meet in the final. meanwhile we have many games to go and the whole thing is still open - france, SA  and australia can win this thing too - an upset wouldnt surprise me in the least - and ireland can definitly get one over on any ( well not NZ or england id say ) team on the right day. <br><br>mungo<br>

whats this doing on page 2 ? anyway, <br><br>NZ 64 - CANADA 6 - i think<br><br>hey stride yer mankey old ewe abuser - whats the deal with sicking yer tongue out and pulling funny faces - all the kiwi crowd seem to be doing it from what i see of the tv footage ? anyway - you lot need to find some serious forwards and pretty quick if you are to stand a chance - the maple leafs had NZ on the back foot for much of the match - back play is ok though suffering from the england cricket team syndrome - you need to catch it see.<br><br>mungo
