In just over an hour the All Blacks have a shot at redemption. The way the media has been portraying it, if we don’t win the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will be following shortly behind. Yeah right. It’s just a game and if we lose that’ll suck, sure, but if we play like an All Black team and still lose then I can handle that. We’ve obviously just been beaten by a better team on the day.

So what do I think will happen? Well the weather’s shit here in Auckland so there is a temptation to believe it’ll go like last week with even more handling errors. I don’t believe it will. We’re at home and the All Blacks will be hurting. I expect us to rebound from last week. The best thing going for us – Richie McCaw’s back. That gives our defence AND attack some starch. The second best thing – no Lauaki. He was a mess last week and hopefully we won’t see him in a black jersey again. One puzzling selection is Kahui on the wing. Have they lost faith in Tuitavake and Wulf? Weird. It just show’s how much they miss Rokocoko.

My prediction: All Blacks by 6.
