Default It's a (All) Black Day

You guys in the US and Canada might not know it but we (NZ), the greatest rugby team in the world, just got knocked out of the Rugby World Cup by France.
It was the Pommie referee's fault and the world will never be the same again

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Geordie,

That's too bad... It's a real bummer when something important is changed by an Official's mistake.

We don't have Instant Replay where calls can be challenged in Baseball...
We are currently in the playoffs to see who will play in the World Series...
There have been several Official errors which have changed outcomes...

I think we will have Instant Replay in Playoffs and World series games real soon... If we don't, we should have.

Perhaps your Rugby Cup games should also have Instant Replay where important play calls could be reviewed to be sure of accuracy?

Have Fun,
Joe

As a Brit expat, all I can say is nah nah nah
Can't blame us Brits, if you'd played better it would not have been a close call
There's always next time

I'm staying well out of it as an ex-Pom.

Thanks for the sincere expression of sympathy, vapochilled.
It's wise you're staying out of it Harry. The Poms did for the Aussies too

You're right, vapo. Now the shock's worn off I have to agree that we didn't perform on the day. Ah well, Allez les Bleus!

Dead right it'll be tough. The Boks are physical players and play more of a running game. My money would have to be on them unless England can shut them down and kick their way to another win.
