Yes, The All Blacks won again as predicted. Didn't need to get out of 2nd gear to be fair. The Englanders were dreadful.

We both got it wrong, but my prediction was closer. No way were the ABs going to beat England by 30-40 at Twickenham. But you're right that they didn't need to be at their best and probably should have won by more.

All that matters is The All Blacks made the Englanders look like 2nd rate cannon foder.

Just trying to find a big enough piece of paper to write the Scotland v All Blacks winning margin spread down on.

A weak All Blacks squad on the field tonight, so AB's by 21 to 30 points.

The Scots show a little backbone, but still not enough to beat NZ B team.

All Blacks coach needs to stop playing with his selections or one day they will get beat.

A good effort by Wales for 65 minutes of the game, then the All Black fitness and superior skill took over running out winners 34-16.

The All Blacks showing once again, why they are the Worlds best Team of any sport.

Fair comment. Thought for a moment that Wales might finally break the drought but nowhere near good enough in the end. 5 tries to 1 says it all.

The Welsh making the most of a NZ coach there. A good showing at the World cup likely from the Welsh... the dark horse?

It's possible if they get out of their group. I can see them beating England but they always lose to Southern Hemisphere teams, whereas England have a decent record against Australia in World Cups. So I think they'll all beat each other and it will come down to bonus points. Wales and Australia may have the edge there as they play a more expansive game than England.

The French making sure England don't overtake the Paddys at the moment

Yes.

6th v 2nd in world rankings, though home advantage would over come a chunk of that.

5th v 1st would be Wales v NZ, so you'd have to say it was an upset.
