    Geez what does one say.

    Would love to be on Wales, cheering for an All Black choke, however, that would mean the French are World Champions, that does not sit right at all.

    Go the All Blacks.

    C'mon AB's.

    Hopefully by plenty as well. Like Mr A alluded to, the world cannot allow the French to be champions at anything.

    The French should be world champions in one thing only, being cowards.

    Mate - they're muppets! They don't play good rugby and shouldn't have made it to the final. It's going to be bad enough hearing how they think they're the 2nd best team in the world and that they deserved to make the final. On top of that, they're French and they are located in the northern hemisphere!

    The french style of football is actually far more exciting than anything AUS/NZ can muster.

    its just THIS team is playing a conservative style of football.

    They are capable of playing the most beautiful rugby in the world... 20mins of true french flair can destroy ANYONE.

    thats what i fear the most this weekend... we need to get away early... to keep us safe from any possible french fury.

    Whilst you make a fair enough point in that the French can destroy anyone in 20 minutes, I don't think the AB's have much to worry about. The French played their final against England. The AB's are awesome from 1 to 22. The AB's are the best team in the world and deserve to be RWC winners which would be the proverbial icing on the cake. If the AB's lose it will be because they lost it (not because the frogs won it). Israel Dagg for man of the match!

    Not only that, the AB's need to keep getting points (or attempting to). If you try and close out a game it may just play into their hands.

    If the AB's have a 15 point lead with 15 to go there would be some very nervous people. The French, when they want to, can destroy any team. I don't think this French team can though.

    AB's by 20.

    The French hate would be more due to them losing 2 pool games and Warburtongate. Still can't have the ABs winning so France it is.

    After what they did in 1999, which I still haven't forgiven (worst day of school in my life!) I'd never support them. Heaven forbid if Australia had won yesterday I'd definitely have been picking Australia ahead of France.

    I'll never support the Northern Hemp teams I have a dislike for their style of play for years, and one of the reasons I believe those teams improved is because they've had influence from past and former players from NZ and Aust who are the best at bringing a free-flowing style game and making rugby what it is.

    GO ABs!!!!

    what the french did in 1999 is part of what makes french rugby what it is... utterly poor and magnificently divine in the same game.

    all NZ fans treat the French with the highest respect...

    the try from the end of the world... right on the final buzzer..... the last team to beat the All Blacks on Eden Park.

    Cedric Heymans against the All Blacks... the last team to beat the All Blacks at home.
