Now the All Blacks have continued their domination of Bledisloe and Trinations rugby its time to focus on our 3rd Grand Slam. With the recent form of the ABs we should win all of the matches. Wales after winning the 2008 Six Nations should be our toughest opponents but I think the final game against England will be the closest.

Here is the tour fixtures below. (NZ times and dates)

09 Nov New Zealand v Scotland Edinburgh 6:15 am

16 Nov New Zealand v Ireland Dublin 6:15 am

19 Nov New Zealand v Munster Limerick 8:30 am

23 Nov New Zealand v Wales Cardiff 6:15 am

30 Nov New Zealand v England London 3:30 am

Do you think they will acheive another Grand Slam?
Who will be toughest opponents?

Yeah we should get the grand slam and i think england will be the hardest game mainly because it is last on the tour.

Good to see hika elliott got the call up this morning he should have been there from the start much better than cry baby flynn

Yea so stoked Hika got in there, he will be lucky to get much game time though, maybe against Munster and a bench spot against the Irish or Scots. I dont know why they pick bloody Flynn above him, Hika had a much better Air NZ cup and is a big up and comer, Hika will be number 1 hooker in NZ come RWC 2011.

Yeh Hika will certainly do the jersey proud.

Have to feel for Hore though - 5 minutes into the first match and his end of year tour was f**ked.

Id back us to do the slam this year. A bit gutted that we're not playing France though to be honest.

Wales and England should be the toughest matches. And id expect European Champions Munster to put up a decent fight hopefully. That will be good to watch. Dougy Howlett coming up against a few of his old mates!

True I forgot about Dougie that should be interesting, Yea Munster will put up a bit of a fight as we will probably use a "B" side.

Yeah i feel for hore i would rate our top 3 hookers as
1. hore
2. elliott
3. mealamu

with flynn being nowhere he will probably leave and go overseas next year but a t least he can earn more over there as an ex all black

Kiwikid what do you reacon about them chosing Andy Ellis over Alby Mathewson, I think that is a ridiculous decision also. Ellis is crap especially when he is wearing a black jersey

Yeah i think if you take 3 players for a positon why not take someone to learn because he will probably not get a game anyway except maybe a few minutes against munster.

Got to build depth so yeah they should have taken alby for the experience i personally think they have it right with cowan being the number 1 and weepu being the best bench half as he can play 9 and 10 a bit like preston used to.

Yea definitly agree with you there. Cowan has been performing well this season and his form in the ABs has been exceptional. Weepu on the bench is key to, he can come on and make a big impact.

Carter did ok at halfback.

Wayne barnes tried his best to ruin the game as well. BUt still a win three more to go for the grand slam.
