Yep, very happy. Good match, too. The Wallabies were good, but not nearly good enough. This AB team has only lost 3 games in the 58 they've played in the four years since claiming their previous world cup win. I think we can put to bed the "chokers" taunt, and the "can only win at home" one as well.

Watching this world cup tournament has made me realise how different our rugby experience is compared to the Northern Hemisphere. We take it for granted that a team plays Total Rugby: that players 1 - 15 have skill and pace, and that the team can change from one game pattern to the next between games or even during a game. Northern Hemisphere teams, by contrast, struck me as a shade one dimensional.

I saw the game Sunday, and yes, it was a good game.
Opera was good. I'll post about it.
