Peter Bills RWC Diary: Play-off games are for losers
I shared a panel on TV here in Auckland the other night with former All Blacks coach John Hart and that great No. 8 of yesteryear Murray Mexted.
Whilst we were waiting to go on air, we talked about this Friday’s 3rd place play off match between Wales and Australia.
Now I don’t know about you, but if it were me and I’d just lost a semi-final of the Rugby World Cup a few days earlier, the last thing I’d want to do is play some meaningless game against another beaten opponent just to make more money for the organisers.
