Hi fellow multi-screening tragics.  This is our post for the night.  Just respect the people in Backchat – no rugby talk, no scores, no final result.  Not even when the game is over, just in case someone’s watching later.

Bragging rights are back up for grabs:  get your scores in before the game starts.

    AB’s 32- SA 15

  • Wasapilot

    38-12 to the AB’s

    Been a beautiful day here in Christchurch, and still not a cloud in the sky now, so looks like the weather gods have smiled on us.

    • Carl

      Where’s HP. (snigger)

      • Wasapilot

        He might have come up to the game carl.

      • Wasapilot

        Just seen the. Anterbury Manawhatu result, so I hope he has not done anything silly, if you are reading this HP, ring lifeline or similar agency.

        • Blueburd

    • Hailstormers

      Totally agree Nige. ABs will break biggest winning margin record tonight (32). So I’m expecting a thrashing and I pick 59-13

      • Sally

        Miss Lizzie.

        • Nige.

          Seriously? She looked like she was about to fall over!

          • Wasapilot

            Dehydrated and has pneumonia perhaps

          • Nige.

            Come on. She’s a bit of a leftie but she’s no communist

          • XCIA

            I have all the intravenous re-hydration drama if you want;-)

      • Wasapilot

        Lizzie marvelous

  • Carl

    I hope dear Lizzy donates the money she gets paid for singing the national anthem by the NZRFU which covered up the Chiefs so called scandal to a womens refuge.

  • I like that Haka

  • Lux

    Here we go …………..

  • A 90 second test match?

    Oh,, 92nd test match.

  • Lux

    Huh 90 second match lol

  • Lux

    Keep booting the ball Savea !!!!!!!!!!!

  • Some fairly flat passing…

    …we have a heck of a history of having intercept tries scored off those.

    • Nige.

      We’re working out the ref

      • No kidding. I’m puckered up that he’s going to be featuring a lot.

  • nellie

    Camera work is awful so far..

  • Lux

    Come on .. no free kicks please.. thats illegal ..

  • Lux

    Ok a free kick for us .. that’s more like it ..

  • XCIA

    Gatland is staking his reputation on “his” Lions on thrashing the AB’s at Eden Park. There are a few tickets left at c1-1.5K…..

  • Dan

    Since I am watching by braille (no TV or radio, only various apps.)You guys enjoy the game while I keep an update on the predictions:

    From 25 predictions: Average = 41:15 to ABs. Range of scores: ABs 23-65; Boks 0-24.

  • Lux

    Yes we are on the board ..

  • AB 3 – SA 0 after 9

  • Lux

    3*0 to us ..

  • nellie

    I agree with Pete, the ref is dominating at the moment.

  • Dan

    If the average score of 41:15 comes about – Jafarma (40:16) will have bragging rights,

    • Jafarma

      The Boks are allowed to get 2 more penalties

  • Lux

    13 minutes gone and still 3 nil to us..

  • Lux

    ohh fumble by the boks .. and a push by the Ab’s .. now a scrum ..

  • nellie

    Really poor defence there.

  • Lux

    Damn this is getting a little dangerous ..

  • Lux

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NO!!! O

  • Whoopsie

    AB 3 – SA 5

  • XCIA

    1st try to SA. I guess if it had to be anyone, I’m pleased it was Habana……..

  • CheesyEarWax

    Nice try Habana.

  • Lux

    Come on guys..

  • AB 3 – SA 7 after 20

  • Oh man, this ref is going to feature a lot

    • Lux

      it makes the game so boring ..’

  • Lux

    YES DAGGGGGGGGGGG BABY !!!

  • CheesyEarWax

    Too easy.

  • AB’s respond

    AB 8 – SA 7

  • Lux

    damn ..

  • Beauden Baby is still Bollocks at converting

    • nellie

      Should let Izzy kick

    • Lux

      all I could summon was damn ..

    • CheesyEarWax

      He needs to learn to take his time.

      • No botty wiggles you reckon’?

        • CheesyEarWax

          yes, and the Johnny Wliksonson hands clutch,

  • nellie

    Oops Habana is hurt.

  • Lux

    Whowee SAVEA BABY !!!!!!!!!!!

    • CheesyEarWax

      Nearly a botched try.

  • Lux

    YES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Dan

      There is one of your Savea tries Lux. One to go.

  • Jude

    Nice first try for Julian against South Africa!! Well deserved

  • Lux

    Here we go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lux

    15-7 after Barrett converted the try !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DeplorableHungarianPhrasebook
    • Wasapilot

      See what happens when little is away

    • CheesyEarWax

      It wasn’t me.

    • PhantomsDoc

      DHP, if you hadn’t posted it on here it’s likely nobody would have noticed it for months (like their policy releases).

  • AB 15 – 7 after 29

  • Lux

    Come on !!!!!!!!!!!!!! just about there 22 metre line ..

  • Lux

    Damn and now knocked on by someone shonky ..

  • Junior

    Ref is carrying on as if he’s from the Northern Hemisphere… and our commentators are too damn soft on him.

  • Lux

    Ab’s 15-10 after the boks got a free kick , 36 minutes gone

  • Jude

    South Africa are more competitive than Australa were against ABs! They are making tackles that count

  • Lux

    Now a scrum under the Boks goal line

  • Lux

    WE need a try before half time guys !

    • Jude

      Yes they have the ball but those Boks are tackling well

  • Jude

    Come on ABs ! Los t forward😔

  • Lux

    39 minutes gone

  • Junior

    What a boring half… thanks Angus.

    • nellie

      The commentary is really boring too. Might have to listen to the SA one instead.

  • Lux

    the hooter has gone for half time

  • Lux

    ok take toilet break.. they are to your left after you walk outside the orb, then climb down the ladder a couple of floors if you cannot make it down ..

    well spillage is.. well wet .. and climb back up ..

  • XCIA

    Some half time entertainment……..A rival for the haka perhaps? Khukuri dancing – A traditional Nepalese dance.

  • Dan

    So 15:10 at HT. Nic C won’t want any more bok scoring.
    The WO Expert closest to the differential is Richard’s miserly score (but at this rate – likely) of 23:19.

  • hookerphil

    Thank you for your concerns, it was all part of the plan. Waikato to beat Taranaki then joke Canterbury to yet again win the Shield. You heard it here first

  • Lux

    We kick off now for the second half. The score 15-10 to the Ab’s

    • nellie

      And already a penalty. I think it’s 1 every 4 minutes.

      • Lux

        It better be even more to get my score!

  • nellie

    I’ve tried to keep quiet – but geez I hate scrums

  • Lux

    Joe Moody is off, I missed who is replacing him sorry ..

  • Junior

    I’m with Nelly on this. I hate scrums. Sorry Hookerphill.

    • Wasapilot

      At least rugby union scrums are hard, unlike oansy league scrums.

      • nellie

        Hard to understand yes.

      • CheesyEarWax

        League scrum is a cuddle.

  • Lux

    46 minutes gone .. still no real action
    the crowd is booing

  • nellie

    Must be due a Mexican wave. Be more exciting than the game…

  • Lux

    Ben BABYYES !!!!!!!!!!!

  • AB 20 – SA 10, AB’s looking a bit more organised.

  • CheesyEarWax

    Ardie Savea, good run and setup the try.

  • Jude

    Ardie Savea woo hoo! Nice they are playing together so well😉

  • Lux

    22 -10 to the Ab’s

  • AB 22 – SA 10 after 50

  • nellie

    Retallick should get Lasic.

    • Junior

      Tab should run bets on whether he loses a contact in a game. I’d be up 3 to nothing.

  • Lux

    51 minutes gone

  • Lux

    22- 13 after the boks got a free kick at goal

    • nellie

      It’s called a penalty Lux.

  • Lux

    Jerome Kaino off for the night due to injury, he looks a bit beaten up .. poor luvvie.

  • Blueburd

    Haven’t seen much barrett magic tonight

  • Jude

    Savea!!

    Ardie

  • Lux

    SAvea Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Junior

    What is Marshall going on about?

  • AB 29 – SA 13 after 57

  • Jude

    16 point gap to ABs who is closest?

    • Dan

      On margin: Sally.

    • Dan

      Hailstormers and Cambo with correct bok score

      • Jude

        The game has run away from the Boks. I think the level of fitness and skill of the All Blacks is going to challenge all other sides.

    • Dan

      And YOU of course closest ABs score

  • Lux

    57 minutes gone .. 29-13 to the Ab’s

    after the try converted ..

  • Jude

    Ok little kick but there you go! SA throw in

  • Jude

    These SA are big and strong players. I can’t watch

  • Lux

    Ardie Savea off

  • Jude

    I hope our players are just a bit more fit and talented 😉

  • XCIA

    We need to go to the bench for the last 10

  • nellie

    Coles final pass again.

    • Junior

      He’s had 3 solid try assists. Great game from him.

  • AB 34 – SA 13 after 64

  • Lux

    Whitelock BABY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a Player !!

  • BB Baby does another booboo

    • Junior

      Just as well he makes up for it in the rest of his game.

  • Wasapilot

    Dane Coles baby for man of the match?

    • +1 from me

      • Jude

        Ditto from us

    • Junior

      He had a cracker. He was key assist in at least 3 tries.

    • Lux

      Dagg has been pretty special ..

  • Lux

    Hmm damn that would have a cool try

  • Blueburd

    If it stayed this score I was close with 34=12…. but I want more tries

  • Lux

    No Try

  • Lux

    5 metre scrum ..

  • Blueburd

    Lima!

  • 12 minutes to go

  • AB 39 – SA 13 after 70

  • Lux

    TJ Perenara !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BAby !!

  • Blueburd

    Interesting watching our halfbacks running tonight… haven’t seen much of that

  • AB 41 – SA 13 after 72

  • Lux

    BB BABY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Blueburd

    streaker

    • Lux

        It was Savea too Lux

        • BWAHAHAHA

        • Lux

          Hahaha LOlol you are so BADD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love it !!

        • Blueburd

          is that who it was, I thought there was an eclipse

        • Lux

          I had to go to the loo, I was trying to hold off .. and all the real action happened..

          I will learn from this .. :-)

    • sandalwood789

      (Bok with Afrikaans accent) – “I’ve never seen such a toiny bit of biltong hey……”

  • nellie

    Oh look another penalty (from a scrum).

  • Minute left…

      NZ now on 20 points !!

  • Brian Dingwall

    Thank you all, been watching the game and the chat, most entertaining both.
    No comments as texting family in other centres….not enough hands.
    Thank you Pete

  • (pics)

    • rantykiwi

      That’s a funny points table – I always laugh, half in embarassment, when one team has more points on their own than the rest of the competition.

      • Unless the Argies win WITH a bonus point, the ABs have it won.

        • rantykiwi

          That’s not out of the question either.

  • sandalwood789

    “Deeze Bawks…… nawt enough biltawng hey…….”

  • Jude

    Special that two brothers score tries for A Bs in same test match ! Savea woo hoo!

  • Lux

    So .. who won the bragging rights do you reckon?

    • rantykiwi

      Not the blokes in the green jerseys.

  • Dan

    Closest differential predicted by ME!
    Exact Bok score by Hailstormers and Cambo
    Closest ABs score by Jafarma and Pete.

    Winner is. Pete with 42:12! Very close.

  • Dan

    Special mention in dispatches to Lux for predicting both Savea bros scoring tries.

    • Lux

      My secret weapons !!

      Edit to Add: Thank you.

  • Junior

    So, we staying open to watch the Argies beat the Aussies?

    • rantykiwi

      It’s a bit of a foregone conclusion so probably not worth the effort.

    • Wasapilot

      I will see how the game goes, if it is boring I will flag it. Go the Pumas 18-12

      • nellie

        Aussies got more than that after less than 10 minutes.

        • Wasapilot

          Mmore scrums needed

          • nellie

            Haha. I think there’s only been 1 -:and that resulted in a penalty.

    • Junior

      Looks like I may be eating my words.

  • Let’s just say there isn’t much of a chance that Argentina will win. 21 – 0 after 12

  • nellie

    Ooh some argy bargy

  • XCIA

    Woo hoo the Argy’s score!

  • XCIA

    21-13 to Aus at 44:10

  • XCIA

    33-13 to Aus at 64:37

  • XCIA

    36-20 to Aus, full time score.

  • ex-JAFA

    I picked 41-23 in the dinner party sweep I was at last night. Even though someone else picked an aggregate score closer to the result, I won the $30 because I got the winner’s score spot on.

    • Wasapilot

      You are a class ACT ex-JAFA.
