Australia - oops
New Zealand - oops

Just leaves 2 SH teams.

Hopefully Scotland can do the biz and get rid of one more

Do the Argies really count as a traditional Southern Hemisphere team though? Admittedly, they need to be admitted to the Tri Nations now.

Totally agree. If the Italians can be allowed in to the Six Nations, it is a no brainer that the Argies should be let in to the "Quad" Nations.

They deserve it, not only on this tournaments performances, but on their general results over the last ten years.
They also have a better than evens chance of getting further than Australia and New Zealand (guffaw)

Think of all the Fray Bentos that you will be able to stock up on. How many hours difference is it to NZ ;-)

Deep joy at the result and to top it all I will have a number of Aussies working for me this week - of course I wont be taking the pXXs!

Any truth in the rumour that they are changing their name from the Wallabies to the Wannabies?

To be fair, Tommy_Cooker, loads of Jocks, Taffs and assorted others congratulated England on the other thread. Hopefully we'll be doing the same for Scotland in a couple of hours!

Loved today's Sunday Times headline- "Winning Poms"!

There is a problem though. The game in Argie land is amateur and their union will not allow it to be pro, hence all their top players play for European clubs. As the tri nations do not have same playing dates as the 6nations there could problems getting their squad together.

From the NZ Dominion post:
Ten reasons why the All Blacks' 20-18 loss to France in the Rugby World Cup quarterfinals ain't that bad....

Richie McCaw's freshly cut hair put in a great performance.

They only won by two points.

Only one person lost $A5 million ($NZ5.89 million) by betting on us winning.

France could still lose the final.

We could have lost to Georgia.

Blue will never look as cool as black on a uniform.

What doesn't kill us can only make us stronger.

If it wasn't for the ref, it would have been different.

You can still drink your beer stockpile on New Year's Eve.

The French have never won an Oscar for best picture.
