    They are now sponsored by one of the American companies directly involved with the global financial crisis and its beginnings. I wonder what the people of Canterbury think of this choice of sponsor?

    why would the people of Canterbury care? AIG don't do domestic insurance in NZ, only commercial and travel.

    IAG on the other hand own NZI and State......

    Yep. Sad reality of modern day sport. Firstly, its now a business. And as with all businesses, to remain competitive and ahead of the pack you have to spend on R&D. Ice baths, GPS tracking, slow motion cameras, climate chambers, video analyst team, etc. Plus with the ABs parent company, the NZRFU, also responsible for the players wages and domestic game its not a cheap organisation to run. Sadly, one day all players Jerseys will resemble the side panel of a NASCAR with 15 logos all fighting for space. Hope Im gone before then!

    Aussie will rue those missed chances in the first half. All Blacks have not been great at all but are some how leading at the half.

    All Blacks will rue not capatilising on the sin bin. Forwards are too error prone at the moment but you can see them building nicely.

    How good is Israel Folau...

    Brodie Retallick needs to take the tackle sometimes always looks to throw a short pass. Would work much better if he only throw the pass on occasion.

    I didn't realized the Wallabies relaxed their international eligibility rule until I saw GIteau and Mitchell back. So I googled it and found that they have. So they're finally realizing that they don't have any chance without the good players. The All Blacks will never do that.
