Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

More heartbreak for Ireland in NZ. We should have won that game but we just lack the killing instinct required to get the job done. 10-0 up and then we go on to make silly error after silly error. Much much better effort than last week and we did well to get back level but it's a HUGE chance missed.

Wales must be gutted, losing with the last kick of the game. Fantastic kick though.

England just got battered for the first 40 mins but gradually came back into it. SA look scary good though considering they are rebuilding another side.

Watched the last 2 New Zealand and Ireland matches. Only thing I can think of is how much America would crush if we actually tried at this "sport."

Yet your too busy playing other 'sports' like Baseball and American football.

Aussies 20 - 19 Argentina with 8 mins to go. Argentina on the attack!

Argentina did lead 19-6 at one stage.

Bah, Aussies win 23-19

All Blacks ground it out against SA, winning 21-11

New Zealand to go one behind the record test match win streak held by rugby powerhouse Lithuania (18 in a row, New Zealand currently on 16) in their match against Australia tonight? I think so.

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

Richie McCaw having 100 test wins is mind blowing. Utter dominance.

Mistake ridden game early here. Aussies should have punched that one in though.

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

We are just so weak compared in New Zealand, in that we have absolute no advantage on the park.

When we play some of the Island nations we have a far better pack, and when we play the Europeans we generally have better backs in both quality and depth, but against the South Africans and particularly NZ we just have no area we can really dominate.

Australia deserved to win really. NZ played terribly. If they can´t beat that Aus team they don´t deserve the record. Although the record unbeaten streak is still available.

Australia are at +8 for the match vs England. Am i missing something or is that stupidly good value?

You would expect a response after their performance in France at the weekend. It's what they do. +8 looks good.

Don't follow either form closely - how good is the current English Union team, and how are their prospects over the next few years?

It's a work in progress, there is considerable room for improvement at the moment but a lot of young players in and around the side.

There is a good chance, if the group develops well, that they'll be second favourites (behind NZ ldo) when the 2015 World Cup comes around and that (the World Cup) is the main focus.

Don't expect them to win all the next three games and the grand slam though.
