    Yep, they would love an all NH final, esp a top 6 nations one Im sure

    (Not suggesting bias just business. Rugby is number 4 code un australia so wr dont care, and will always be number 1 in nz and sa, so the growth $$ market is NH)

    I think, other things being equal, WR would always prefer a North v South final

    Dont know about that. Australia rugby is a niche sport that peaked in the 90's that 4 out of 6 states dont know exists and will probably never win another wc, NZ is a country of 4m where rugby is already king.

    Dream final would be USA v China but thats a way off

    That may depend on the outcome of tomorrow's SF. Not tyyhat he doesnt deserve it on merit. But WR wpold be creating a place he cold be hung out to dry. which is unfortunate.

    Good question! Tactical advantage surely?

    The advantage they wanted was to make it dead

    Dead = advantage gained
    Not dead = no advantage

    See, it's not the kick it's the outcome of the kick (we are seeing this more and more)

    But I think the question is should we?

    The decision was correct
    No territorial adv (kicked backwards)
    No tactical adv (didn't go dead)

    But normally from a ko adv, being able to play without being under pressure is normally advantage gained.
