7's rugby final australia south africa

Wow what a game

after a horrible few minutes South Africa leading 17 Australia 0

Refs missed South Africa knocking on in goal as they were awarded a try

A try before half time by Australia made it SA 17 Aus 7

Australia score 2 tries after half time to take the lead then South Africa hit back with more tries.

Saffies miss a converstion from right in front :astonished:

Final try goes to the Aussies…

Final score 26 - 22 what a game

Good thing I recorded it for Bismarck…

New Zealand were thrashed ny Samoa earlier on in the day.

Not necessary. I watched. Good game, pity Samoa didn’t flog Fiji, though…

How did the lineman miss this clear knock on. Now Saffies are allowed to score air tries after knocking on… damn

Yes but overall wasnt it nice seeing the Kiwis not getting any decent result in New Zealand.

The All Blacks can emulate that in next years World Cup Rugby :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Indeed, it was satisfying, but there’s not much chance of them losing the RWC in New Zealand. If they do, they’ll never live it down. Also, the entire team will probably be axed and exiled, the coach put in front of a firing squad and the Prime Minister and his entire government will have to resign following the inevitable riots in the streets and general wailing and gnashing of teeth of sheep shaggers* all over both islands.

Obviously meant as a SANZAR term of endearment. I’m not implying that NZ’ers actually shag sheep.

Well there were riots after they lost 22- 10 against the Walliabies in the semi finals 7 years ago. New Zealand had prepared streamers and ticker tapes to welcome home the WRC champions. After the team arrived they had to be escorted down a back road to avoid being savaged by the press and rugby fans, the stock market droppped 15%, and the suicide rates went up. Kiwis especially hate losing to the Wallabies in RWC matches and they fear playing the French in any Semi Finals.

You and I will be selling our favoured items on the streets of New Zealand next year. Almas John has said he will buy up 50% of our stocks for his family, friends, and all the rugby clubs in NZ.

After all it’s been 24 years since the All Blacks have even made it to a WRC final.

Not so. They made the final fifteen years ago and got stomped by the Springboks 15 - 12. There’s even a movie about it. With Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon even!

Edit: Joking aside, I’m backing them to win RWC 2011. I think it’s about time they got another one, because I couldn’t take it if the English (horror of horrors!) won it again. I still haven’t forgiven the 2003 Wallabies for gifting them that one. In Aussie, no less!

Yes my error I meant WON a RWC final. I was living in Taichung ad we had a bar full of people watching on the Thai satellite at the time.

Saffies kicked 5 drop goals in one game from all over the place if I recall correctly.

South Africa has never been the same after winning at home. A win at home for NZ would actually be a disaster. :whistle:

Well, we’re the current World Champions (and Tri-Nations and Super 14 Champions) having won in France. :smiley:
btw, that 15-12 RWC 1995 win wasn’t all drop goals. I think both sides had three penalties each, with NZ getting one drop goal and South Africa two.

The game with 5 drop goals by S.A. was when South Africa thrashed England… wasnt referring to the final

No I meant South Africa ( as in country ) hasn’t been the same since.

That was in the 1999 RWC. Jannie de Beer single handedly handed England their asses. Awesome game.

Nothing to do with rugby, though… Although many would argue it’s better. And in some ways it is. Just a pity about the crime…
