Prediction for Saturday...

Post by russ.. » Fri, 14 Jul 2000 04:00:00


Australia to dominate possession, look to work around the sides of the rucks.
NZ to hold on, try and keep the play as close to the centre line as possible
and look for turnovers in lose situations. Counterattack to be prime method of
attack, especially in first half.
As game goes on, expect to see increased ABs forward ***, perhaps
restoring 50% possession to the Blacks.
From this, higher emphasis on classic backline movements against a more 'tired'
Australian team, perhaps Lomu making a 20 minute high intensity burst before
being benched.
Cullen to be the difference.

33-21

To whom?

Don't expect to see the Wallabies getting tired before the last whistle.

I expect a close game - thrust and counter-thrust; resolute defence on both
sides, innovative counter-attacks yielding tries both ways, but not enough
for bonus points.

Cheers,

Ken

To be honest, which I am not, I thought it would go the other way.

Wonderful to read about Gerber and Serfontein still being on top at their
ages. I thought all old players never died, just drank their Beers into
oblivion. 2 of the Greats.

Super to hear about JPR still going strong. Didn't know he was a specialist
in sports injuries. This fiery FB caused enough sports injuries to SA teams
in his halicon days   :-). Good to see him repaying his debts to (rugby)
society.

Probably also the only full-back who won junior Wimbledon as well. He is
most certainly the only Welsh international to hitch a lift back to London
with us from the Rhyl 7s (he was a doc at St Mary' at the time) tolerating a
broken minibus window, a piss-soaked seat (it was a drunken attempt to empty
the bucket out of a closed window, see..), a diversion via Aberavon so our
own Welsh Gareth could say "look who we've got in the bus Ma" and the less
that subtle drunken piss-taking of the rest of us 9 Englishmen.

I went to a corporate do - "Dream Lions", attended by all of my personal
gods - and doing the rounds afterwards I mentioned that we'd given him a
lift back from Rhyl 17 years ago - he remembered it with crystal clarity and
with a degree of fondness that I probably wouldn't if I were him - truly a
legend.
