THIS WEEKEND 29 JULY

This is a quiet weekend around the world at the international level.

 

29.07.2006

New Zealand 13, Australia 9 in Brisbane (Bledisloe Cup & Tri Nations)

New Zealand won by 4 points. I predicted New Zealand by 12.

 

An exciting encounter played at break-neck speed throughout. Fantastic defence by both sides, New Zealand just keeping Australia out at the death. New Zealand must now be hot favourites to retain both the Bledisloe Cup and the Tri Nations trophy.

 

Last Five Encounters:

08.07.2006 New Zealand 32-12 in Christchurch (Bledisloe Cup & Tri Nations)

03.09.2005 New Zealand 34-24 in Auckland (Bledisloe Cup & Tri Nations)

13.08.2005 New Zealand 30-13 in Sydney (Bledisloe Cup & Tri Nations)

07.08.2004 Australia 23-18 in Sydney (Bledisloe Cup & Tri Nations)

17.07.2004 New Zealand 16-7 in Wellington (Bledisloe Cup & Tri Nations)
