New Zealand 108
Portugal 13


The first match of the day is already over. Although it may have been over before it started. This was a big of a mismatch as there was in this RWC. The #1 team in world rankings against a team that had never before qualified and claimed the final place in the tournament in a repechage playoff against Uruguay. The All Blacks should cruise to 1st in this pool while Italy and Scotland are fortunate to have drawn one another in a battle for 2nd. The Romania v Italy match frankly stunk and Portugal is happy to be here. The All Blacks would have liked at least one decent match before the quarter-finals and surely won't get it from this out-classed lot.

Up next:

Saturday 15th September 2007
Wales v Australia (it is 32-13 Oz as I post)
Ireland v Georgia

Sunday 16th September 2007
Fiji v Canada
Samoa v Tonga
France v Namibia
