Another Spectrum

Personal ramblings and rants of a somewhat twisted mind

We Won!

4 Comments

I’m not particularly sports minded, and I didn’t set the alarm for 5:00 am this morning to watch the World Rugby Cup (RWC) Final between the All Blacks and the Wallabies.

The RWC became something of an anti-climax for me at the end of the quarter-finals, when I realised no northern hemisphere countries would be represented in the semifinals. Somehow it’s easier to feel more pride, when we come up against our larger northern hemisphere rivals and win, than against our southern hemisphere neighbours.

It was a great effort by the All Blacks: the first team in RWC history to win back-to-back finals; and the first team to win the cup three times.

We can’t take anything away from the Australian effort. The well deserved their place in the final, and as usual they proved worthy adversaries.

  1. Congratulations!

  2. I have not watched a lot of it. I want England, Scotland and Wales all to win- I have priorities when they are playing each other- and I am pleased that there is one Irish team, rather than North and Republic as with association football. Hakas are always fun to watch.
