Bledisloe Cup:) whos gonna win...and how much by...................

NZ win by 20 or more would be great but i think it be a 0-10 point margin with nz winning...

what do u all reckon?

and i leave you with this...

Former Wallaby skipper Nick Farr-Jones says a loss in Saturday’s Bledisloe Cup decider could be just what Australia needs.
I don't see us winning this game - the All Blacks are too on song and too superior at the moment," Farr-Jones told BBC Sport. "But I don't think defeat would be a bad thing. If anything, a win would prove a setback for us."

What planet is he on? A win being a setback???????
He must be a school teacher, where winning is frowned upon

47-30 to AB's

I think it'll be a high scoring match (as long as its fine)
yeah - wot is the weather currently like in auckland??

24-17 to ABs.

That's my pick :)

6-3. 2 dropped goals to a penalty.
Showers in Auckland here right now, should clear before the match, though.
Australia want to lose because they want to learn as much as possible for the world cup.
So do we, We need to learn how to keep winning again! :-)

Really?! :O

This site (http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=auckland) must be full of BS then. Though it has got the weather at my place fairly accurate.

Actually it is typical Auckland weather today - I have had sunshine with blue skies, which was quickly followed by rain squalls, back to the sun again and now semi-overcast. Pretty normal.

Oh, I forgot to add my score ...

28-15 ... to the Aussies ]:)

The weather is supposed to be a shocker so 18-12 to AB's. Lets hope its nothing like the boring 6-3 Otago v Auck. Almost fell asleep & knocked my pint over :-)

Was I closest?
Do I win a prize?
I picked the AllBlacks by 3
We toppled the Auusies by 4

Great game, equally played, in the end the better team won.

I reckon the score would have been a lot higher for the All Blacks, had Carlos Spencer's conversions/penalties been more accurate. (Bring back Daniel Carter!!)

but overall, great game, haven't seen a more exciting game!

Well, chris, I've only just started watching rugby :P

Not that I'm actually interested in it, I'm just watching it so that I know what everyone else is talking about...

Still a soccer girl at heart :)

Have to agree - it was an excellent match. I also wish it was drier, because I guess that we would have had a slightly more convincing result based on our superior striking
