Rugby World Cup 2011 Fourth Weekend – A Glimmer Of Hope

The RWC - Causing 4 million Kiwis to simultaneously cry every four years since 1987

Dan Carter - the world's second best fly-half and owner of a torn groin

ALL BLACKS 79 CANADA 15

ENGLAND 16 SCOTLAND 12

AUSTRALIA 68 RUSSIA 22

This completely rubbish World Cup continued in the same fashion as it did in the last few weeks.  Scotland lost in the final minutes to England after leading the whole game, Australia beat Russia but conceded 22 points and lost Drew Mitchell for the rest of the tournament.  Even the form teams that were expected to give the All Blacks a run for their money like South Africa were struggling to beat Samoa.  It looks like it should be a comfortable stroll home for the All Blacks to pick up the William Web Ellis trophy.

That is until this morning where the world woke up to the news that Dan Carter pulled his groin during training for the game against Canada and has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament.  This one set of torn gonads might well tip the balance of the World Cup in the Wallabies favour.

UPDATE: The quarter finals are now locked in.

The way that things have worked out, there will be a North/South divide for the knockout stage of the competition.

ENGLAND vs FRANCE

IRELAND vs WALES

AUSTRALIA vs SOUTH AFRICA

NEW ZEALAND vs ARGENTINA

  1. What is a fly half and how is Dan second best at it? :)

  2. I remember when you used to be a kiwi. You’ve strayed horribly!
