True, but it was a cracking match If someone could just knobble Beauden Barrett before the Rugby World Cup, we might stand a chance because they still looked very dangerous ball in hand, even with 14 men.

For our American viewers, rugby is the ancestor of the NFL. Just before they removed the skill and talent from the game

Google Christian Wade's debut appearance for the Buffalo Bills - first touch and a 65 yard TD. Wade played for Wasps and England in rugby union before trying his hand at NFL.

Not quite as expected Crab, thanks for bringing it up. I thought it was a yellow, but a red was harsh. That said, most heart I've seen from the Wallabies under Chieka.... they'll get smashed next game though.

Very probably - your boys were just as dangerous with one man off the field. Red vs yellow? It's a world cup year and the refs have been told to clamp down on such play - if a Wallabies lock had done the same to a All Black I suspect your viewpoint might be different.

Looking forward to the next match as our local team, Exeter Chiefs, have helped develop Nic White into a world class 9.

Another marvelous game today, throughly enjoyed it.... but as we all know anything can happen when the Northern and Southern Hemisphere teams meet....

This one was quite interesting, thanks to Mr Johnson CBE and Mr Wilkinson CBE


Remember this our Southern Hemisphere friends!

Obviously sometimes what is written doesn't come across quite as it was meant.

the only thing i can add is that for the last two RWCs we didn't manage to win the tri-nations/championship in the same year, so i hold out hope for a good result for NZ. I think any of the top 7 countries could win and being in Japan its anyones game.
