The mighty pack of Wolves isn't a school, it's a team in the rugby league

We won the challenge cup last season

Not only that, but we recently won the league title for the 3rd time. In 1954-55 to be exact

As for whether or not I'm a fan of the thing in general, I detest the male groping sport. However I have been to 3 Warrington Wolves matches and have a signed leather egg, also known as a rugby ball, somewhere amongst the cobwebs of my garage.

New Zealand secured their second successive bonus point win in the 2010 Tri-Nations with a 31-17 victory over South Africa on Saturday.

Ma'a Nonu, Mils Muliaina, Rene Ranger and Israel Dagg all scored tries for the All Blacks, while flyhalf Daniel Carter, who had a poor
goalkicking performance in missing five attempts at goal, slotted two penalties and a conversion.

Piri Weepu also added a penalty for the home side, who had beaten the Springboks 32-12 in Auckland last week.

Danie Rossouw and Schalk Burger scored tries for the world champions, while Morne Steyn added a penalty and two conversions.

The Springboks, who had Bakkies Botha sinbinned early last week, again fell foul of the referee, with Rossouw shown a yellow card in the fourth minute for kicking All Blacks' captain Richie McCaw.

The New Zealanders took advantage of their extra man, with Nonu and Muliaina finishing off sweeping moves that had begun inside their own half.

Carter, who had missed an early penalty, missed both conversions and the All Blacks had to settle for a 10-0 lead while Rossouw was off the field.

The flyhalf slotted his first successful penalty in the 31st minute before Rossouw barged over in the 37th minute after the Springboks had got field position from a penalty against Ranger for not using his arms in a tackle.

Steyn converted to make it 13-7, while Carter missed another penalty attempt into the swirling southerly wind in the final seconds before halftime.

The Springboks flyhalf added an early penalty in the second half but Ranger managed to dot down in the corner after a long pass from Muliaina to give the All Blacks an 18-10 lead.

Weepu, who temporarily replaced Carter as goalkicker, slotted a long-range penalty to extend the lead, before the All Blacks were forced to soak up immense goal line pressure from the Springboks.

Dagg then produced a mercurial run down the left touchline, turning four defenders inside out to score his first test try and Carter finally found his kicking boots, slotting the conversion and adding a penalty.

Burger added a consolation try for the Springboks late in the game, with Steyn converting to end the scoring.

Scorers:

New Zealand:
Tries: Nonu, Muliaina, Ranger, Dagg
Penalties: Carter 2, Weepu
Conversions: Carter

South Africa:
Tries: Rossouw, Burger
Conversions: Steyn 2
Penalties: Steyn

Rolland: Bok 'wrecker'

Cape Town – Alain Rolland is the latest referee to find himself public enemy No 1 in the eyes of the South African rugby public and commentators.

Make no mistake, New Zealand were good value for their second thumping of South Africa on the trot in the Vodacom Tri-Nations at Wellington on Saturday.

This time the margin of victory was 14 points, rather than last week’s 20, so it remained worryingly clear-cut.

But the Boks were better at the soggy Westpac Stadium, if that is any comfort -- and their task was not helped at all by Rolland’s all too clearly jaundiced showing in favour of the home side.

Perhaps the very dubious “legend” of Bakkies Botha means John Smit’s side are going to suffer for a while, whether consciously or not, at the hands of some whistle-men tarring the rest of the troops unjustly with the Botha brush.

But Rolland made a crucial, match-influencing decision as early as the fourth minute which rocked the revenge-seeking Boks right back on their feet.

Having awarded them a kickable penalty which would almost certainly have meant the morale-boosting lead in the contest, he promptly reversed it after what seemed a reasonably innocuous altercation between Danie Rossouw and All Black captain Richie McCaw, simultaneously giving the disbelieving Bok lock a sin-binning.

What followed was a 10-point turnaround as the gleeful hosts ran in two unconverted tries before Rossouw’s return, and it was always going to be a tall order from there for South Africa to turn things around despite some flickers of fightback promise.

Just as galling for Bok supporters, though, was that Rolland appeared no less well-disposed to the All Blacks for the remainder of the match, often penalising the Boks at the rucks and in the tackle when there was clear evidence he should have acted the other way in identical situations.

Indeed, fetcher McCaw got away with murder, in terms of skirting his own yellow-carding, getting a “no more” warning from Rolland on one occasion and then, remarkably, being handed what was termed an “official” last warning to save his bacon!

Rolland also took no yellow-card action when Rene Ranger blatantly shoulder-charged Bok fullback Zane Kirchner in the 35th minute.

During SuperSport commentary on the game, former Bok captain Bob Skinstad was moved to say: “He’s (only) reffing one side here.”

And afterwards there was animated studio discussion, with national flyhalf icon Naas Botha saying: “He’s blown like a home-town ref: he kept on ‘warning’ the All Blacks and it was obviously frustrating the Boks; you could hear them talking to him about it.”

Ashwin Willemse, the former Bok wing, said Rolland’s decision-making had “made a major impact on the game” and added that “interpretation” was making things too easy for referees at times.

“He made it very clear he was going to give the All Blacks the benefit of (any) doubt.”

Anchor Darren Scott weighed in on the Ranger high-tackle matter: “If that had been Butch James he would have been sent to Siberia.”

Captain Smit was surprisingly diplomatic in the pitch-side interview after the final whistle: “I was very happy with our set-pieces … (but) we weren’t allowed too much fast ball.”

He didn’t need to say much more.

The various experts’ comments were likely to have struck many South African chords in living rooms … but they also shouldn’t disguise the fact that the Boks have mounting problems, Rolland or no Rolland.



so p**s*d at this result....Ref was a joke ....wtf IRB? next week the Wallabies better not play this cheating brand

Thanks for the video, San Pato. Brazilian tv is too pussy to broadcast it and I can't find a stream. Keep uploading this thread, please. Ignore the ones who don't like it.

The All Blacks seems to be crashing everything they see in front of them. Holy shit! Are they that good or the Springboks is kinda disorganized?

And why there are only white guys on Springboks? Didn't the black people started to be more interested about rugby after Mandela's support or this manager is biased?

And check out the All Blacks' jersey number 4. Badass!

I think its a mixture of bad refereeing ,Bad springbok play and great AB play .....hate to always blame the ref ,but the decisions he made and the way he whistled the game was Sh!t....he didn't blow according to the law ,thats okay ,but the thing that was even more disappointing was the lack of consistency for both teams ....it didn't help that he was hooked up to a microphone which could be heard by the whole stadium....the key decisions he made during the game would've changed the game in either team's favor and we all know who won....

Nah dude there are enough people of color in the squad ...some are injured and never traveled with the squad ...and the number of Black people that play rugby are far less than those who play soccer ....although if you look at the under 17/18/21 sides there is more variety in races etc

Is the referees allowed to use the tv or it's like football? The players don't seem to complain too much about the refereeing. Seems to be way more easy to whistle than football.

Why did they form a ruck after John Smith's tackle? Springboks advantage because the All Blacks let the ball touch the field?

Riots on rugby is way better than football, haha. Big badass guys pushing each other and no Xavis and Iniestas diving.

Anyway I think that Springboks could be better if black guys got even more interested to rugby. In american football they run like bullets, no one can stop them.

They are allowed to use tv ...but it's mostly limited to tries(goals) being awarded or not ...for foul play ..etc they are cited and have to appear in a sports court to sort it out ...some get banned for 9 weeks etc

rucks are usually formed after a tckle .....Fights are always better in rugby :





gotta love the french

The thing about south african blacks is that they are more on the slender side ...and don't have the build to make it in rugby ...+ the skills required to tackle prop etc etc ....but like i said there are some very promising youngsters coming through the ranks

It's awesome how no one can stop them to fight, hahaha.

Isn't it a difference between ruck and scrum?

Sometimes there's a ruck without referee interference but in this case, the referee stoped the game before the ruck. Why?

The All Blacks guys took the ball and was running before the referee stops the game. Was he trying to cheat?
