NZ have some cracking talent coming through. Nothing new there. I was really unimpressed with the two Ulster players starting today. I don't know if Rea was carrying an injury, as he was subbed at halftime, he was miles off the pace but certainly not the only one.

Stewart was a mix bag. His short passing game is good but if required to pass more than a few metres it can be a bit wayward. Hopefully Dwayne will be a good influence on him.

Both second rows were decent enough. I read elsewhere we are getting Regan. Could be good in a few years.

Do they keep playing until we win it?

Everyone is a winner. Millennials can't cope with defeat.

Well, baby blacks won it and stuffed England in the final. There are a number of unreal NZers coming through. Asafa Aumua the hooker will be a future all black. Great ball carrier with the pace of a winger. Also Caleb Clarke and the capt, Jacobsen were excellent.

Multi skilled brilliance from the Blacks.
Surprisingly Aumua only made 8 carries in the final before being taken off at 65 minutes.
For a small guy he's an electic mix of Samoan strength & Fijian speed.

The No. 9 delivered wonderful long range fizzing passes.
The No. 15 Jordan is a wonderful 2 handed skipping runner in the mould of Ben Smith.
The Blindside flanker made a 60 metre clearance from his own 22 in the second half!

Caleb Clarke (the wing man/man child) made 110 metres in the first half almost as many as the entire English team (118).

Jonny Stewart was excellent tonight in Bordeaux scoring a great opportunist try.

We wouldn't know. RTE don't think we're Irish.
