Shock and Awe

The only words one can use when describing the results in the Rugby last weekend. I’m quite willing to admit that Australia hasn’t looked like a serious contender in the last year or two, but England has looked much worse. To go down in a similar fashion to the 2003 world cup is just horrible. Still, Australia losing was conceivable. What amazes me was New Zealand choking against France!
While I lived the dream that it would be the Aussies winning the world cup, if you looked at their form over the last 2 or 3 years, you’d say there is little chance it could be anyone other than the All Blacks winning the cup! I didn’t get to see the game, and I am not sure I want to.
To top it off, the Springboks almost got done in by the Fijians. I decided to watch the first 10 minutes of this game and ended up staying there for the whole thing. It was awesome to see such a little nation schooling the big boys for so much of the game. It was one held-up try that kept the momentum from taking the fijians all the way.
On the other hand, it is good to have a Southern Hemisphere super-power still in the running. SA should account for Argentina, then it doesn’t matter who they meet in the final. Hopefully the cup will come back to the right side of the globe!
Other news? I guess there isn’t much. Still sorting out work for next year. I think we have it sorted, but you will have to wait till next monday to hear the result. Had a meeting for a wedding shoot in December. I need to get my head around a wedding shoot that I have this weekend too. Lots of stuff on!
So there you go. I still have these assignments hanging over my head, so I better see to them.

  1. Yeah it would be great to get the cup back to the southern hemisphere…..but I just can’t support South Africa, I just can’t.
    Even if in a compeltely unjustified twist the English make the finals V Sth Africa…I’m going to be wearing the white and red.
    The sth africans bite too much, eye gouge too much, and cheat too much.
    Am I unaustralian for not supporting the southern hemisphere?
