Tri Nations

Post by Iain » Mon Jul 17, 2006 12:53 pm

The Tri Nations is under way, who is your tip to win it? Can the All Blacks be stopped? Are the Aussies signalling their intent? Have South Africa lulled the rest into a false sense of security? As they play each other three times from this season anything could happen.

Don't think the All Blacks can be stopped to be honest - and I tip them for WC 2007.

saturdays win (and performance) will put a spring in the australians step and they might be something of a surprise package.

everything else points in the all blacks direction though, so they get my vote.

Hard to see past New Zealand to be honest. Australia have a chance, and i really cannot see SA pulling back from their poor performance against the Aussies
Donncha O'Callaghan and Bruce Reihana are the best players that ever lived. Don't even bother to argue with me.

And - however good Imanol Harinordoquy is, he is still an idiot

New Zealand all the way. No one could stop them at the moment. Too good in every department

Why sadly? They're a good team to watch and they can play some exciting rugby.

id love to see saf take the win but looking at the weekend performance i dont even think they deserve to call them selves professionals

when a bunch of young lads put up a better performance than one of the best teams in the world it makes me laugh

New Zealand, I think they will be a force for the next 5 years. I love watching them play, especially McCaw, who im just jealous off, ooops better stop drooling :D

And the results are:

New Zealand
83% [ 20 ]
Australia
12% [ 3 ]
South Africa
4% [ 1 ]

Predictably the overwhelming majority think the might of the All Blacks will be too much for the Springboks or the Wallabies.
