New Zealand v Wales Game 3

nhjaft5pc3

Please keep the rugby related chats and scores out of Backchat, even when the game is over.  Some people may still want to watch it delayed so let’s not spoil their day.

As per usual, guess the final score before the game starts, and if you’re closest, you get bragging rights for the week. 

Wales are letting some new people have a run tonight, and with the series beyond them, they are expected to chuck in the kitchen sink.  It should be a good one to watch, even though the final result is already known.

All credit to Wales for coming to New Zealand and playing entertaining rugby by taking risks.  The scoreboard, as a result, has not reflected their hard work with the All Blacks using the bench and the last 20 minutes to making it all look a little more flattering than it really was.

Perhaps a little moisture during the game, but it shouldn’t shut it all down.

    AB’s 42-22.

  • Nige.

    A reminder to pay extra close attention to the lovely lady singing the Welsh national anthem who the kids in her school class know as “Miss Thomas”.

    Having said that…. This week I am a true believer and think the all blacks will smash them out of the park for 6 with a 66 – 29 spanking.

    • Raibert

      More than a point a minute! International test rugby doesn’t often go there. I’m still picking somewhere around 34 – 9, think both teams will really come to play.

    • Wasapilot

      Great Rugby quiz tonight Nige.

  • Cadwallader

    No matter how much rain there is in Dunedin tonight, provided there are no holes in the roof, there’ll be no affect on the game. Does anyone here know how long ago is it since the ABs lost a test in Dunedin? How many losses have there been in Dunedin? I think the Lions in 1971 won there….

    • Carl

      We lost to France in 2009 27-22 and Sth Africa in 2008.

    • You’ll keep. lol

      I still live in age of the House of Pain

      • Cadwallader

        You mean the erstwhile “House of Taine” and/or “House of Rain.”

        • Yes. The one you’re not still paying off in 2080.

  • Raibert

  • Lux

    Captain Kieran Read has won the coin toss and decided the @AllBlacks will kick off.

  • CheesyEarWax

    Ditched Sky a few months ago. So streaming and WO it will be.

    Go the ABs. Savea to score 3 tries then replaced at half time.

  • RockinBob625

    Perhaps a little moisture during the game, but it shouldn’t shut it all down.

    Do the words “Dunedin”, and “roof” ring a bell?

  • Lux

    It’s heating up in Dunedin

  • Jafarma

    ABs 50 – Wales 14

  • Lux

  • CheesyEarWax

    Bigga dance

  • Lux

    First points! Dan Biggar slots it to give Wales the 3-0 lead after 6 minutes.

  • Lux

    forgot the pic ..

  • Right, made it to the commentary box.

    AB 0 – 3

  • AB 3 – 3

  • AB 3 – 6

  • Lux

    Damn .. I turn my back for a few minutes and all hell breaks loose..

  • Crowgirl

    Well TSN made finding this game on tv tonight harder than it needed to be. I hate when they switch channels on you.

  • Lux

    whaoa… ben smith !! go man go

    • CheesyEarWax

      Good run, Barrett made space.

  • AB Try? TMO needed

  • Lux

    WhOOhOOOO TrY !!!!!

    • Don’t think so

      • CheesyEarWax

        Yeah nah.

        • I wouldn’t have given it

          • CheesyEarWax

            I though hitting the corner flag is out, must be a rugby league rule only.

  • Lux

    BEN SMITHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • AB 8 – 6

  • Lux

    YesSSS

  • No conversion

  • Lux

    jees that was a great run whoever it was

    • CheesyEarWax

      Goerge Moala

      • Lux

        excellent runner

  • AB 11 – 6

  • Lux

    Yuss .. better first half than last week .. come on guys you have to get 88 points !

  • CheesyEarWax

    Moala botched it!!!

  • Hmmm, selfish run may have stuffed an AB try.

  • CheesyEarWax

    Ben Smith is having a blinder, all the balls going to his side.

  • I would give this one

  • Lux

    It was down ..

  • TMO suddenly gets his tough undies on. No try

    • CheesyEarWax

      Hes making up for awarding the last try.

      • I suspect you may be right

      • Lux

        They need to make up for not awarding a try in the first match ..

  • Lux

    Damn

  • That was a try had Moala passed it as he should have. He had TWO players on his left.

  • So, 11 – 6, 8 minutes to go in the first half.

  • Lux

    The TMO rules that Moala has lost the ball over the line to deny the try.

  • TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • CheesyEarWax

      No TMO required for that one.

  • The AB’s have come to RUN

    AB 16 – 6

    • Lux

      It’s a much better game when they run!!!

  • Lux

    TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!! WhohooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOO

  • OMG, a conversion. I need a lie down.

    AB 18 – 6

  • Lux

    They are on Fire !!!

  • jcpry

    Great to See Israel Dagg back in top form. A real pleasure to watch.

    • CheesyEarWax

      Good run from Dagg, a confident run.

  • Wales have a sniff of the line…..

  • Advantage Wales…..

  • 5m penalty to Wales

  • Wales choose a scrum.

  • 2 minutes to go

  • Wales fumble it after a huge amount of pressure

    • CheesyEarWax

      Bad execution.

    • sandalwood789

      Whew….. that was close! Good defense by the ABs.

  • Half time 18 – 6 to the ABs

  • Lux

    Phew!!!!!!!!! time to have a break and come back and win another million or so points AB’s !!

  • Skydog

    This is centre combination of Crotty and Moala is looking good.

  • (pic)

  • Aaaaaand, we start the second half.

  • It would be good for this game if Wales scores a try soon.

    • Lux

      Only after the AB’s get to 88 .. “-)

      • Of course. What am I thinking.

        • Lux

          They have one eight on the board .. it’s feeling ok for now .

          • Yes, only 70 points to go in 37 minutes. That’s realistic, I’m sure.

          • Lux

            yes well.. ya have to think BIGGGG

  • The All Blacks certainly look like they are on the same team. Combinations are working and there is a lot of flair and energy.

  • NZ 23 – 6

  • Lux

    Ohh my lord yyyyy TRy !!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Only 9 converted tries to go.

      • Lux

        Just take few minutes now they have their try pants on ..

  • Beau gets to convert his own try

    NZ 25 – 6

  • Lux

    This more like it ..

  • CheesyEarWax

    The flood gate is going to open here.

  • Ref sends Sam Cane off for 10

    • Lux

      10 minutes is up .. is he back on yet?

  • Lux

    Sam Cane is yellow carded for repeat infringing at the break down. Chance for Wales to come back at 25-6 down.

  • Lux

    Moala is off .. damn ..

  • Jude

    Touching moment for our centre whose parents are watching their first All Black test. Congrats to Naholo family!

  • Lux

    George Moala comes off with an arm injury and is replaced by local favourite @wnaholo

  • Jude

    And another All Black family celebrates their sons first test! I love they are able to watch live:) ?

  • Lux

    ab’s keep fumbling the ball

  • Lux

    DEBUT! @TuungafasiO becomes @AllBlacks number 1150 as he comes on in place of Joe Moody.

  • 25 minutes left, and still 25 – 6. All 15 are back on.

    • Lux

      about time .. now get ya kicking running legs on ..

      • 56 points to get in 21 minutes

        • Lux

          that’s cool.. they will just turn it up a notch or so ! ..

  • BRILLIANT try from BB.

    30 – 6

  • Lux

    TRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!

  • BB converts another one of his own tries

    32 – 6

  • Lux

    Beauden Barrett maybe man of the match?

    • Hard to avoid…

  • Lux

    another tRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Converted try AB 39 – 6

  • Jude

    Our Hurricanes players are scoring well for the All Blacks?

    • They must have won the Super Rugby then?

      • Jude

        You will keep! We score when it counts most. Think of the entertainment we bring!

        • They’re playing your song!

          • Jude

            I know how exciting is that! I must bring good luck I reckon?

    • hookerphil

      Jude, it may be 1.00 a.m. when I am reading this – but really.

      • Jude

        It is bloody true?!

        • hookerphil

          You’re up – we had people for tea so had to watch late and now the Wallably game – half time will read on and see if can go to bed.

  • Lux

    Yess .. another few points until they reach 88

  • Lux

    Great handling from Dane Coles as he goes over to make it 37-6. The @AllBlacks putting the hammer down now.

  • Lux

    The All Blacks lead 39-6 and the capacity crowd of 28,276 is loving the action in Dunedin.

  • Jude

    Would like Wales to finish strongly. It adds to the competition. I need to type as fast as our wings run! Game is running away and now they play my song?

  • Lux

    Damn .. just about

  • I just have to say that the drizzle doesn’t seem to have affected the game much X-)

    • Lux

      Funny that .. and no breeze

    • XCIA

      I wonder if all those who tried their best to stop the stadium being built stay home to watch these games on TV?

  • Getting a bit messy and stop-starty now.

  • Lux

    he took it over with his legs..

  • Jude

    3reset scrums. Tolerant refereeing

  • Lux

    I love the Welsh announcers accent ..

  • Lux

    Come on, get one more try in the last few seconds please..

    • Jude

      A stuttering finish. Would have loved the Welsh to leave with a try.

      • Lux

        same here .. they played so much better in the previous tests..

  • Well, it kind of fizzled out there, but Captain Darling runs in a final try.

    All Blacks 44 – 6, conversion to come.

    • Jude

      I had just wished the Welsh would finish with a try and look what happens. I think it is healthier for the sport that the All Blacks have strong competition. That may be England , South Africa and I am not discounting Australia either.

  • Lux

    OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! excelltnt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Beau converts, and it is Full Time. AB’s win 46 – 6.

  • Lux

    Excellent Game !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • True, first 60 was very entertaining.

      • Lux

        They were just about there ……………………..*-)

  • I’m giving it to KGB, unless someone wants to argue with me.

    AB – 45
    Wales – 19

  • JEL51

    Thanks guys, I had only radio, so you all helped paint the picture. :)

  • Lux

    FT: @AllBlacks WIN 46-6 and take out #SteinlagerSeries 3-0. Thanks for the great series @WelshRugbyUnion

    • Yes, great tourists. Thanks for giving it a try rather than grinding out trying to get penalties.

      • Lux

        penality only games are so boring ..

  • (pic)

  • I’m hanging around for Australia v England.

    =============================================================

    • Wasapilot

      Normally I want both. These teams to lose. However tonight I really want England to win due to recent EU events. Go England! (That was not easy to type) ?

      • Lux

        Has England won the last two games?

        • Wasapilot

          Yep, two zip to England.

          • Lux

            I love it when Australia loses .. :-)

          • Jude

            I normally would want them to beat England but after the referendum I quietly would be okay if England had a clean sweep. It will make a tough Bledisloe series with the Australians having nothing to loose though.

          • Lux

            Yes, it makes the games with them, worthwhile, and very dramatic.. Us, clutching the arm chair stuff, and them watching us, laughing..
            The AB’s have to get a lot better at passing and running and maneuvers..

          • Lux

            Ohh and kicking ………….

    • Jude

      Ditto but I might crash before the end.

  • Lux

    Here we go round two ..

  • Jude

    Love the God Save The Queen sung with passion. Interesting with this series the Aboriginal people welcome visiting teams on to their land.

    • Yeah, I don’t like the trend. Next they’ll import a taniwha and then it will be all on.

      • Lux

        A taniwha can be anything.. I dressed my niece as a taniwha for her school and she won the competition ..

        • Clearly they were scared not to give her the prize

          • Lux

            She did look amazing for a three year old ..

  • Jude

    Nice a Welsh referee!

  • Eng 5 – 0 under the posts, so

    Eng 7 – after conversion, 11 minutes in.

  • Jude

    Their Dan Coles does not look as lean as our Dane Coles! Well done England regardless ?

  • Australia strike back, but it may have come off a forward pass or a knock on….

  • Jude

    Forward!

  • Try!

    • Jude

      I think they may have been lucky .

  • Converted. 7 – 7 after 13 minutes

  • Australia look like they’ve come to play

    Aus 12 – 7

    • Lux

      about time ..

  • Jude

    1st test try to Aussie in his first test match. Promising for them!

  • Jude

    Enjoyed your company Pete andLux ! I am having a moment to recharge my phone. Catch you in a mo:)

    • Wasapilot

      I am lurking in the shadows Jude

    • I might not last. I’m nodding off….

  • Lux

    12-10 to Aus I think it is ..

    • Lux is doing the scoring now. I can hear my bed calling

      • Lux

        I’ll do my best !!

  • Lux

    15-10 to Aus

  • Lux

    Fight !!

  • Lux

    head tackle

  • Lux

    come on dudes .. settle down .. it’s just a game :-)

    • I thought you liked a bit of biffo

      • Lux

        I do .. I was being sarcastic ..

        • Ooooh… like when you say you’re really good at bacon now

          gotcha

          • Lux

            come on .. that was a low blow ..
            and i am a sitting duck ..

          • I withdraw and apologise

          • Lux

            no way .. i was taking the urine .. never do that!

          • I just watch too much Question Time and I consider the Order of the House.

          • Lux

            Mister Speaker .. chuck him to the gallows !!

  • Lux

    TRYYYYYYYY

  • Lux

    15 Alll

  • Owen Farrel is a tidy kicker

    • Lux

      love yeer accent

  • Lux

    that big screen in front of the goal posts must be a bit off putting?

  • Lux

    opps 15-17 to England winning

    • 4 minutes left in the 1st half

      • Lux

        Its different watching a game you have no care who wins ..

        • I watched a lot of Aussie cricket over the years simply because it was good to watch

  • Jude

    It helps to switch the plug on when recharging!

    • Lux

      lol thats so funny !!

      half time peeps .. bathroom break ..

  • Lux

    Just about .. can they?

    No ..

  • Aus 18 – Eng 17 at half time

  • And that’s it from me. Enjoy the 2nd half kids.

    • Lux

      Thanks for the fun !

  • Lux

    Half time score : 18 *17 Aussie winning ..

  • Lux

    just about a score but not after 43 minutes ..

  • Nige.

    Coome on Aussie come on. Come on.

  • Lux

  • Lux

  • Jude

    Wow England well done!!

  • Lux

    Ok now .. 18 aus .. 25 England a penalty kick from Owen Farrell.

  • Jude

    I would normally cheer for our cousins but this time , I am happy for an English clean sweep. The Bledisloe is going to be a challenge for us . A test of character .

  • Lux

    here we go .. foley and some one else .. close to try line .. the babys panicked .. while going through the gap ..

  • Lux

    One two … scrum .. It’s foley .. close to line … a skeleton.. Aus are coming back .. A TRY ??

  • Lux

    This third loss to Aus, in Aus is not a good look .. but they have a try finally

    30- 28 tho Aussie

  • Jude

    The English goal kicker is one to watch! Aussies just get a try , what a game that most are sleeping through!

  • Lux

  • Lux

  • Lux

    cheer the boys on ..

  • Lux

    Farrell is a good player and catches the ball lots..

  • Lux

    someone got off the bench 39 times ..

  • Wasapilot

    I keep nodding off, for 10 minutes at a time.

    • Lux

      I’m trying to stay away until the end .. and amusing myself.

      • Wasapilot

        Just scrolling down through the comments Lux, you are doing a great job ?

  • Lux

    Aus 35 – 41 Eng

  • Lux

    8 minutes to go ..

  • XCIA

    You would think the Aussies would want to hang onto the ball………..

  • Lux

    People are excited .. there is no such thing a loser in this game .. and then just about a try ..

    yes for both sides .. they both missed booting the foot in front of them .. come on ..

  • Lux

  • Jude

    England have won !! Whoop whoop . I lose my picks but am actually ok with that. The poms leaving the EU pleases me very much. Well done England!

    • Wasapilot

      I wonder if that was extra motivation for them Jude. 3 zip, congratulations England.

  • XCIA

    Michael Cheika might feel a little heat on his rear end.

  • Lux

    Aus a Try !!

    • XCIA

      Toooooo late!

  • Jude

    I think the All Blacks should not take the Wallabies for granted!

    • Lux

      or the English .. they both have wonderful kickers

      • Jude

        Am a little nervous that our young side might actually be more challenged over there than we want to believe.

        • Lux

          I’m feeling the same as you.

  • Lux

    Final score Aus 40 .. England 44

  • Wasapilot

    Night all. SWMBO is sound asleep in her chair, so I have put a blanket over her, and leave her to her slumber.

    • Lux

      sweet dreams to all ..

      • Jude

        Ditto me too?

    • Lux

      tiptoes outta room ..

    • XCIA

      Will she thank you in the morning with all the neck and back pain ;-)

      • Wasapilot

        She woke up and came to bed at some time this morning, she is still asleep at 0840. The fact that I did not get woken up by a slap around the ears when she did wake up means I should be safe.

  • Lux

    So did England win every game over Aussie this series?

    • XCIA

      Yes! First time Aussies have lost a series on home soil since 1972……..

      • Lux

        The press will ignore them and/or grind them down ..

        • Odd Ball

          The media tend to build them up, but most Aussies are quite despondent about their own side.

    • Odd Ball

      Yes, the Aussies are quite confident, but this doesn’t match their competitiveness.

      • KGB

        Now the English will be very confident, but it won’t match their competitiveness. ?

  • waddupdoc

    This Whale Oil site is reputed as a top-class blog yet the biggest article, discussion wise, is about rubgy. Says a lot about kiwis.

    • Jude

      I have learned you never judge any article by up votes . Read the other articles and comments before you judge and comment .

    • Nige.
