    Great win; France actually suprised me, thought they were going to be beaten by a good 30 points, but they played really well! NZ deserve the trophy though, they were by far the best team in the tournament!

    Look for a strong showing from both England and Wales next time - honest!!!

      Like ya thinking Simey and wow didn't Wales step it up! ALSO Ireland gave their all.

      England well they jinxed themselves with those black jerseys..hee wink


      Loved the passion of the USA- who apparently a whole town adopted in New Zealand, mind you Todd Cleaver is kinda cute...

      Just for you  Randy (might have the USA/Russia clash)

      USA have improved their world ranking which is exciting to see,but disappointing that USA Media gave them scant coverage.

      Having said that today Sunday 10/23/2011 NBC will screen the FINAL between New Zealand and France 3pm-6pm.

          LOL I am biased and an Englishman living in the US! It's actually the biggest growing sport in schools and colleges in the US and if people started watching it and learning the rules they'd probably really enjoy it!

          It's exciting, tough and very fast!

            I agree, Simey.  I think many sports are being understood better these days because of the ability to see them via televised worldwide broadcasts.  Just what I need, more sports to watch on TV.  smile
