Not the way I expected!

New Zealand 34 - 36 South Africa. New Zealand win a bonus point, South Africa do not.

New Zealand could have won the tournament in this match, but instead, all four teams still have a chance. Australia v Argentina coming up. The team that lose, are out. In the event of a draw, Australia need to win the bonus point to stay alive. (A draw with the bonus point would be unusual under the new rules, but it is a possibility.) Argentina can stay alive with a draw, without the bonus point.

Actually, I think there is a scenario in which Argentina can lose the match that begins in a few minute, and still stay alive, but it requires them to lose by seven or less, and also to score three tries (or more) more than Australia. This is a theoretical possibility, because Australia could get a lot of points through kicks; it doesn't seem very likely there.

So there are scenarios where all four teams are still alive two hours from now, but they're not very likely. Most likely either Australia or Argentina will be eliminated in this match.

Ach, they were away to the second best team of the league, so it's a strong draw, and the foutl that led to the final penalty was really stupid.

VfL Wolsfburg 2 - 2 Hertha BSC

One storay below, Fürth continue ginving the league a run for their money:

SpVgg Greuther Fürth 4 - 1 Holstein Kiel (it has to be said: We scraped by relegation by a point, Kiel were beaten in the promotion play-off only Wolfsburg, a mult-million band. So this victory is kind of upset)-.


Played 37, Won 22, Drawn 10 Lost 5.

Both at the top of their leagues; truly this is a very odd season. Only Ross Chuffing County to check in.
