The All Blacks had some worries as they boarded their flight to London
today, with the suspensions of Tony Woodcock and Sitiveni Sivivatu and
a calf injury to Dan Carter putting a serious spanner in the works
ahead of the Welsh test.

YAY! Zac Guildford will surely get the starting spot in place of Sivi.

Big blow losing Woodcock though, those Welsh props are beasts.

DC hopefully will recover, if not Donald!!! OH NO!! (I'd rather Delaney but that wont happen)

Yeah, losing Woodcock is a worry - we'll find out the hard way whether Crockett is up to it (I don't think he is - but hope I'm proven wrong for the sake of the win...) and losing DC would f$%k us up big time. Guildford gets a well-deserved shot though. Sivivatu did well (his 'tackle' was just moronic and careless - certainly not intentional, but calling it 'bad timing' is really minimalistic (what's the opposite to 'exaggerating'? Smile)) but was hugely outshone by Jane (man that Nonu/Smith/Jane line is dangerous...) so will be good to see some enthusiasm in there.

You can't say what Sivi did certainly wasn't intentional! To me it looked very intentional. He lined him up, wrapped his legs and held on until he was in a very dangerous position. There was no attempt to go for the ball

I think the term most people are using is that it wasnt malicious which is fair enough. Certainly dumb though. Some refs would've even given a red so he was lucky in that regard.

Read today that Cory Jane had a bit of a go at him the media, calling him a silly kid. He's probably right but given Jane's barely out of nappies as a test player, perhaps a bit of discretion and respect for his senior partner wouldnt have gone astray.

Yeah read that and thought it was a bit dumb of Cory - he certainly doesn't want to appear to be so cocky...
