Really dissapointed in their performance. Yet another World Cup slips by them. They've been pretty dominant in the tri nations series over the past couple of years even regaining the Bledisloe Cup when hammering Aus by over 50 points in Aus the last time they met. Credit to Aus though, much as I'd hate to say it, they played bloody well - like champions.

What odds on Aus - France final ?

fantastic defending from the aussies, and they really put the n.z. defence under pressure, and thoroughly deserved the win.

tomorrows game should be equally tight, but i reckon whoever wins that will beat the aussies.

funny hearing "sweet chariot" sung so loudly today, usually followed by boos and "waltzing matilda".

don`t know if that was England fans in the ground, or if the aussies have adopted it; or even if the new zealanders sung it to wind the aussies up. good anyway.

There only looked like there would be one winner from start to finish. I was disappointed NZ couldn't get going, but the Aussies did play well.

C'mon England!!!! Get to the final and gain revenge for 1991

Let's hope they are the only chokers.

If England get past France, and that is not a formality, they will probably be more stressed than the Aussies.

Rugby union is not that big a sport for Australia and they have won it twice before - so no great pressure on them.

Home advantage as well.
