Well as the Topic Description says this will be talking between the Poms, Aussies and Kiwis.

Poms being British, Aussies being Australians and Kiwis being New Zealanders.

Hope a lot of people will comment on this :thumbsup:.

I seem to remember that the Poms could not beat the Springboks?
The Aussies have one more Game to catch up to the other two.

Sorry about the Chart, it diddn't turn out as I had hoped.

Aussies and Kiwis are at it again.

1 each in the Bledisloe Cup two to go! This year they play a 4th Game in Hong Kong to introduce China into the Sport if they can? Hong Kong is in it, but I think is all about attracting interest from China. Be wonderful to see the Chinese get involved in the next World Cup.

Bledisloe Cup
This year's Bledisloe Cup encounter will see the Qantas Wallabies meeting their Trans-Tasman rivals the All Blacks four times. We will be hosting two of these matches in Sydney and Brisbane. The series will extend to Asia this year with a fourth Test to be in played in Hong Kong in November.
All times are local times and subject to change without notice.

26-07-2008 8:05pm Qantas Wallabies - 34 v All Blacks - 19 ANZ Stadium, Sydney
02-08-2008 7:35pm All Blacks - 39 v Qantas Wallabies - 10 Eden Park, Auckland
13-09-2008 8:05pm Qantas Wallabies v All Blacks Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
01-11-2008 4:30pm Qantas Wallabies v All Blacks Hong Kong


There is never much difference between the Kiwis and the Aussies results, Mate, we flog them, then they flog us. :thumbsup:

Poms get their occaisional Moment of Glory, as do the Springboks.

Can we include the Boks, (meaning South Africa) here too, we all are the Best of Rivals and Mates in a lot of Sports.

BTW, I would love others from all around the World get involved in this Thread, let's keep alive a Spirit generated by the Olympics and just enjoy some Nice Company that likes to have a bit of Fun. That is what the World needs I think.

Look at the thing about Rice, (Aussie) and Phelps, (Yank) ? Two Champions that let their hair down together. That is what it is was all about and could still be untill the next one, if we let it?

:flowers:

Yep we should include the Springboks, I know they are South Africans :thumbsup:. Will change the Title if I can.

Yes but we got to the Final of the Rugby World Cup and had a go at the Springboks, you went out in the Quarter Final :flowers:. The Springboks lost that Coach forgot his name a moment but they don't seem to have been same since they lost him, they couldn't get him to sign another Contract I think.

Edit: Looks like I can't Mate, Less than 24 hours and I can't change the Title. Hmmm wonder if I can get a Mod to change it for me.

:thumbsup: Bad Luck.

Nice to know you think that, I will take the part after your first comma :flowers:. Yeah we do vary at times but make up for it in the Big Occasions.

Half our team may have retired since 2003 but we have Youth coming through at a Good Rate as well wish it was as good for the England Football team.

Oh just sent a Message to quietman7 about changing the Thread Title. We were including the Rugby Playing Nations and Cricket.

Maybe the Title Description should read "Other Members Welcome" instead of what I told Quietman thinking about it now and having seen KoanYorel post.
