    USA just pipped by Ireland credit goes to the ref. We ran well and actually played some. I dont expect Ireland will get past Canada.

    I thought everyone loved to hate the French, but the French? Hard to dis the Kiwi's for that. Especially with the above reference.

    One thing is for certain, their rugger's are the strongest battle unit in the country.

    Tonga V USA pure shit show. Backs cant get anything productive going. Eric Fry plays like he is wearing oven mitts, poor scrumager and even worse if you happen to pass him the ball. Zee Ngwenya just doesnt bring it when wearing a Eagles jersey. Better squad than what Sullivan had but Tolks just cant get them to play as a unit.

    So has the All Black kicking game.
    Very accurate.

    France a little lucky I think, to be only 10 adrift.

    ABs about as impressive as I've seen them for a while. Textbook precision on the basics and a good kicking game.

    Unbelievable! I hope this doesn't mean that the margin of victory in next weeks game will increase by another 20 points.

    Should have taken Trinh Duc on tour; no shape without him just Picamoles charging and Fofana dodging.

    USA scrum is a horrible as it has ever been. Japan pushed the srcrum all over the park...38-20. We looked good in attack and at this point I dont care if Z ever suits up for us again after watching Hume.
