I prefer Backs, no idea why, just do. Probably because I'm a new rugby fan (been watching since 2006 or so) and it's a lot easier to see what the Backs are actually achieving. Trying to work out what's going on in a scrum, or breakdown, ruck, maul etc is extremely hard for a new fan. I still go 'WTF' when the whistle blows half the time. It's a very complicated game, and I think unless you play yourself (I played in secondary school, but not too much) you won't ever fully grasp all the little technicalities.
I prefer forwards. Loose forwards to be more specific. The way they turn the ball over half the time is incredible and requires incredible core strength. And sometimes they get crazy turnovers. Like Richies when he was on the Australian centers back on Sunday. And forwards are more hard hitting most of the time. I also played as a flanker for about 10 years so it's fun to watch somebody else playing the position.

sorry I gotta hate on the all blacks here, craig joubert backed up my theory that he was biased towards the blacks in this tournament starting last week with the aussie game with pockock wrongly being penalised by winning the ball and mccaw always and I mean always cheating, he steals balls off his feet, he holds onto tackled players in rucks, he doesn't roll away and no penalty. I think that's outrageous, credit to every all black player not named mccaw the cheater who ruins games and wins them that way.

Haha come on, Richie got penalized plenty of times last night. I reckon Craig Joubert is the best ref in the world and reffed an almost perfect game last night. And I thought the penalties toward Pocock last week were perfectly fair apart from maybe one of them. But that's just my opinion.

I stayed up late last night to watch it live on a little computer screen, then remembered they were showing it in HD on NBC here this afternoon. An 11 hour delay but so much better to look at. Great match to end a great tournament and the French did much much better than anybody thought, congrats to the All blacks. Couldn't believe how lucky Donald must have felt from coming so far in such a short amount of time.

france did pretty good for what they had, they could have won if they didn't go for a 49metre goal and instead the lineout for a try or close penalty or drop goal
