Take Two

Sir Clive has named his team for the second Test. Never been sure about Moody as an open-side - expect Dan Carter to kick a few penalties for offences at the breakdown. I'm also very surprised to see Jason Robinson keep his place, although apparently he played well yesterday morning. The lineout is still a worry - Thompson is capable of being at least as erratic as Byrne was last weekend, but one hopes they've been paying special attention to that area in training this week. Glad to see Lewsey restored to his best position, and Peel keep his place - I think Dawson would have been a major step back.

All in all, I expect to see a better performance, but I don't really see anything the All Blacks will be frightened of. New Zealand to win by two scores...
