RWC: No Hayley, results and "bleedin' obvious" statement of the week

All Black fan hopes of being able to hit the high notes during the National Anthem have been dashed as Hayley is replaced by a CD ... boo, I say!

With the Wellington Phoenix playing their first league game at the Stadium today, this ad with English rugby player Josh Lewsey tells more about why I'm not a soccer fan than I ever could.

In other news - seems the Welsh are up against the French and themselves as the Irish struggled home (23-20) against Italy and the Scots were soundly beaten by the Boks (3-27). The Islands were out in force, Tonga beating Edinburgh (26-14) and Samoa took down Sale (26-7). And finally, the Pumas beat .. Belgium!?!?! (36-8)

A wee review of the 'easy ride' the All Blacks have to the Quarter Finals ... will this be their undoing? No.

And I leave you with John Connolly, the Aussie coach, with the finest 'bleeding obvious' statement of the whole build up so far:
"I guess everyone who goes to the World Cup wants to win it,'' said Connolly.
