NZ on an unbeaten run

New Zealand might have lost the rugby, and the cricket is clearly immoral, so the unbeaten run of the New Zealand Falcons in the International Cup of Australian Football in Melbourne is very timely, and, as AFL is clearly the world's most libertarian sport, highly moral and worth your support. :-)

NZ's Falcons under the captaincy of Andrew Congalton have now beaten Great Britain (photo of the game right), Spain and now Japan in their last three games, and are on track to meet favourites Ireland in the final to be played at the MCG on Saturday.

Before getting to the final however they face their biggest challenge in the semifinals against either the athletic PNG, or a resurgent USA, and they must beat Samoa in the last of their pool games. The semifinals will probably be the first time the Falcons face any real pressure, but with Ireland going down to the USA, NZ now top the ladder with a huge percentage, and are being given the favourites tag.

Watch this space...

[UPDATE: After beating Samoa in their final pool match 98-27, the NZ Falcons are now through to Thursday's semi against the USA.]

Unrecognised sporting prowess perhaps?
