    I've got tickets to the NZ v Australia game though apparently my tickets are "restricted viewing" so I'm guessing some part of a pillar or other stand is blocking my view but oh well.

    I'm also thinking about flying to Wellington for the quarter final :D

    I have strong feeling that not 'fight hard for dust' would happen this time. New Zealand have always shown their best performances in world cups reaching semis most of the time and getting pulled out when the trophy is one less step closer, without converting all the semi final chances into final. Now, they would not be the so called giant killers but would be the favorites for the world cup title?

    ...or some one. Me. It's me. I'll be wearing a mexican hat and holding an umbrella for no reason. Got tickets for a bunch of NZ games in Napier and Hamilton. Can't wait!

    South Africa have this World Cup in the bag already, but I'd be genuinely pleased if it was a NZ/SA final. There's every possibility we'll make our usual Semi-Final spot though, we've got a pretty decent team. Quietly pleased we're not viewed as "underdogs" because that's an annoying title and underdogs are for teams like India and Pakistan that really don't have a show this time around.

    Solid victory, momentum continues in our favor. Stay the course, lads. England is next on the menu, Wellington is a bit of a booby location for us at the moment... Good thing England haven't shown up to the World Cup yet.

    Well that was a lot closer than it should have been... Hopefully just a sleepy-day for our guys, expect Hesson will put a rocket up them before England.

    I just hope they don't peak too early. In 1992 they were the favourites to take home the trophy until the Inzi storm hit them. SF has always been their World Cup curse and I have a feeling that it may end the same way this time round too.
