thirteenthman 30-6 (margin 24 points) to Australia; MoM J Thurston; 1st Try B Morris
Bourbon Rat 24-12 (margin 12 points) to Australia; MoM Cronk; 1st Try M Scott
G Las D 28-14 (margin 14 points) to Australia; MoM J Thurston; 1st Try B Morris
Southstander 22-10 (margin 12 points) to Australia; MoM J Thurston; 1st Try B Morris
1st Try Scorer None of us correctly predicted the first try scorer, but the player Bourbon Rat nominated (M Scott) did supply the pass to Cronk who scored it - I call that the closest call there.
Man of the Match: Cameron Smith - none of us picked him out - we must have been either mad or spoilt for choice.
Final Score: 32-12 to Australia - none of us got that spot on, well what were the chances of that??? All the same thirteenthman was closest to the winning margin for an Australian victory (+4points), so he wins that one.
As for the poll, I'd call that a comfortable win in the end for Australia. It would be unkind to call it a thrashing as I reckon the Kiwis being 6 all at half time and having a lot of possession and initiative early in the second half deserve credit for that. You'll have your own view on that.
Those predicting a comfortable win for Australia were: Dennis Bloonock, Bourbon Rat and G Las D
thirteenthman and jascksy may disagree on that one.
