All Blacks 29 - Wales 9

A great day today for New Zealand sport. The Kiwi rugby league team producing the upset of the century by defeating Australia and winning the Rugby League World Cup. Yay - we've won a world cup that isn't for lawn bowls. Awesome and well done to Steve Kearney and his guys.

The All Blacks followed up with a comprehensive final score against a spirited Welsh side in Cardiff this morning - but the score did flatter the ABs who were pants in the first half. The naughty step award could have been shared by Carter and Cowan who both had off nights.

Highlights? Great plays by Mealamu, McCaw, Kaino and of course Rodney (does he ever have a bad game?). Awesome too Joe, and even Sivivatu was OK. But the biggest highlight was definitely the haka stand-off. Now that's the way to issue a challenge. Brilliant!
