The raptourous delight of the ab fans gives it all away

Seldom has one witnessed such overflowing delight.nz oaks up in the early hours of the morning telling us all how wonderful the abs are.
If we look at it realistically the abs were poor at the world cp and should have lost to a very average French side. Now they are made to look good by plaing an injury hit Oz side and came off second best agaisnt anvery new Bok combo in Dunedin. I appeal to all nz oaks to keeptheir feet on the ground. Fortunately the delusions of grandeur will continue for a while longer.
Reading it all I could only conclude that they were incredibily releived and were addressing so muh of their remarks to themselves as means of much needed reassurance!! As Mike said ReUnion had acknowledged that the Boks should have won the Dunedin test. So in terms of the rugby played it was one all even if the socreboard didnt reflect this reality - so I appeal again to all nz oaks and apologetic genuflecting saffas (radtad and co) not to get carried away.
Strangely the home sides did not play well in ether test and one wonders if it was the pressure. However the Boks did show periods of such dominance inthe forwards that at times it looked like men agaisn boys. All very promising stuff but of course there are wrinkles to iron out as one would expectr given where we are right now.
