    Nice of you to remember, but in the same year that we've beaten Scotland and one year after defeating les Bleus(in France), that was hardly an upset.

    People forget the 1987 World Cup when Wales beat Australia to get third place!

    Certainly. Australia was favourite to reach the finals, and ended 4th. Great welsh display; a good spirited team.

    Must be cause I'm a Kiwi but the final in SA in 95 seemed a little differnet than I expected.

    Actually it is cause I'm a Kiwi cause I'm think every world cup since 87 has a certain result.
