Eff Them all! Eff Them All!

.

In less than an hour, the frogs will be playing the Argentine Pumas for 3rd placing.

Last week, the Pommies went head-on with the Frogs for the fourth time in Paris, Stade de France in the World Cup Rugby semi finals.

The two arch rivals also met in the 1991 quarter-finals where the Poms won 19-10, the 1995 third place play-off (Frogs prevailed 19-9) and the 2003 semi-finals, where the Poms again won 24-7 on that greasy wet pitch in Sydney.

So when the respective captains, Raphael Ibanez and Phil Vickery, lead their teams out last Saturday morning, little did I realize the humiliation the host were going to face.

The frustrating thing was watching the frogs played with limited imagination and a non existence ‘garlic flair’ that won my admiration in the past, watching them kicking away possession when they could have utilize their hard running backs. The much needed punch they had the week before when they defeated the Kiwis was grossly missing!

The Poms just took 78 seconds after kickoff to score their brilliant try with winger Josh Lewsey racing past his opponents and pouncing on the hesitant Damien Traille. After that, anybody who thought that the score would herald 78 more minutes of running rugby were to be left disappointed as the boot and staunch defence ruled.

Apart from conceding silly penalties within kicking range, the frogs could only convert 3 of them.

(a dejected French supporter)

Three minutes to full time, Wilkinson found himself in the pocket after a massive drive by the forward pack and slotted a magnificent 35-metre drop kick that sealed their victory.


Final score: England 14, France 9

Damn the Poms! They are in the finals….and I lost money. Perhaps the All Blacks parody best describe how I felt that day.

Never mind. I look forward to a repeat of the first round humiliating 36-0 defeat of the English by the Springboks tomorrow night.

Thou shalt not gamble.. just view the game for the love of the sport and in the spirit of sportmanship.. as in how horse and camel racing here is viewed for their speed and stamina. But you may be allowed to take part in competitions that involves selecting the top 3 winners and win attractive prizes...

*winks*
 
damn the poms! serve them right for not winning the cup!

Ah Yi Kat...I gamble small only lah.
Hahaha!! You actually fell for that camel & horse race thingy ah? The arabs also bet like anyone else lah.It's a universal thing.

kyh...Oi! They won in the last world cup. This year give it to someone else la.
You also a fan of rugby ah?
Yeah, it was disgraceful of them. Losing in front of their home crowd, loosing their cool etc.
This must be the lousiest french side I've come to know. I really admired their predecessors.

Khengsiong....Yay!!!! It was a well fought match but the level of refereeing was damn shitty. In fact this world cup, I find the referees not really strict enough and that's why there were so many ugly incidents involving the players.
Final I didn't bet leh. Belanja teh tarik ok anot?
 
You, as a member of the OK-Something Klan Choir, have been TAGGED!!
