QANTAS A380 landing incident at YSSY

From the Daily Telegraph today:
Video: Qantas plane lands with tyres on fire - Telegraph
Another total non-event? They blew a couple of tyres on landing which resulted in some pretty impressive pyrotechnics given that it was at night. The A380 has 20 wheels spread across the main landing gear. Two blown at that landing weight shouldn't have been a problem.
