Shame, Ha, Ha, a new low for the Wallabies  rotfl 

Mind you the All Blacks of 2002 (aka the Cantablacks), derided by the Wallabies, Springboks as well as some Kiwis as only a provincial side won the Tri Nations beating Australia once (loosing the second game by only 2 points) and beating South Africa twice. Perhaps Wales should field a side full of Osprey players.

I just hope the All Blacks can deal it to the England this weekend despite only playing Carter from the bench

Something about the Aussies losing, especially to a region/province. Especially, seeing as much of the Welsh international Osprey players didn't play due to them being in the Welsh squad for the Autumn Internationals.

Seeing Australia lose is similar but nowhere near as good as seeing England lose!

Had this been a full strength side, the result would have been very different.

Yes, a full strength Ospreys side would have bet the Wallabies by even more!  Wink  rotfl

He's been at the Ospreys since 2004 I think. Getting on a bit now, but he's excellent cover for Fullback and Wing. He also seems to have a good way with the media in fairness.

Wow. Way to go Wales.

England 20, NZ 41. Not a bad game, could have been alot more tidy on both teams behalf. The AB's let in a few soft trys IMO
