Sorbos World Cup Blog, Thank Fuck Its Over

 Pretty good final eh? not what everyone had expected (well as my bet proves I did) but it was a close as fuck final. But why should we be surprised it wasn't a blow out? its not that often in a final of any sport one team wins by a large margin. With this in mind I put $10 on New Zealand by 1-10 points at $5.50, thank you TAB.

Stephen Donald
All the sudden dick sucking from his haterz is getting annoying, made a crucial kick and defended well throughout. He didn't have to do that much and as I said when he was announced in the squad he had lead us to victory against Australia in a Bledisloe game he could do it here.

Piri Weepu
Poor game kicking at goals, went down in the warmups with an injury but still played pretty well in the rest of his game.

Thierry Dusautoir
Massive game from their skipper, scored the try and made many big tackles and strong runs. Deserved MOM and player of the year not just off that performance either.

Match Analysis
The French didn't "dominate" us in the second half cause we didn't let them, they for sure had the most possession. But the only real reason for the try was Nonu not picking up the ball from behind the ruck when it was clearly out, France kicked it out caught our defence out of position, try.

The New Zealand forwards didn't dominate like they did against Australia and thus weren't able to have many try scoring opportunities themselves. The French tight five in particular had a massive match, really strong lineup performance and at times looked really good in the scrum.

Smart kicking game and strong defence is what won it from New Zealand, we kept playing smart avoiding any stupid errors in our own half.
