Bit tighter than I expected for All Blacks vs Italy 13-7 at HT.

First time I've thought that in a while.

Wales were horrendous last night. If they don't improve they're going to get destroyed by the All Blacks

Thanks for the free money bookmakers!

The problem with Wales is their forwards can't turn over any ball for them at the moment and Preistland is a terrible rugby player so wastes all the ball they do get

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

Anyone going to defend Robson's decision at the end? Kick to touch has to give them >30% chance of try imo. I doubt they have 20% chance of scoring from the restart and that's assuming Farrel makes the kick 100%.

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

Worst result in Scottish Rugby History. What a completely joke.

That was stunning from the All Blacks.

I think the kick with 8 minutes left was a marginal, albeit correct, decision with a gap of seven points. Robshaw's decision at the end was nuts. I can see his logic - Farrell will almost certainly score there and then they have time for a drop goal, except they only might have time and almost certainly won't.

Agree kick to touch has a decent chance of a try and they have to take it to win the game. Farrell will nail the kick to touch as well as anyone - the way he dealt with the kick at goal because the captain said so, even though he knew it was stupid decision, was really strong stuff.

What's disappointing from an England point of view is that both games (Australia and SA) were theirs to win. Not sure if they are learning the lessons though.

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

Was going to post about how it was worrying how much more competitive England were against SA than Scotland were and then i seen the Tonga score. Think i might pretend to be Irish this 6 nations because Wales don't look like they're going to get it done and **** the other three.

Ye Scotland are looking really poor. Wales will turn it around for the 6 Nations. They have been using these test to play youngsters instead of playing the best team each week. That and hopefully Priestland will no longer be a rugby player.

Ireland will be fine aswell. I imagine the 6 Nations will be between France and Wales, with France being favourites and Ireland a close 3rd

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

As far as the Eng game goes. Taking the points down 7 with 8 mins to go was standard. Taking the points down 4 on the 22 with 90 seconds to go is lolbad. By the time the penalty is taken and SA kick off, time will be up. So you would be needing to advance the ball ~60 metres with 0 mistakes when SA will be super aggressive in the rucks knowing England have to take a tap penalty if they give 1 away, then if by some miracle Eng to get within range, Boks will nit up and not give any penalty away making England get inside the 22 just to have a chance at a drop goal.

Awful decision, put it in the corner and 15 man maul it like the Welsh since its all or nothing

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread

Plenty of lols to go around this weekend. Lol england, taking the points with the last penalty is a horrible decision. Lol wales, straight from the grand slam to losing six on the bounce. Can't believe Priestland missed two penalties to the corner. Just awful. Lol scotland, surely this must be the end of the road for Robinson.

That was the best first half by England I've seen in a very long time. Pack is completely dominating in all aspects and solid defence from the backs.

That was definitely as good as I've seen England play since 2003. Possibly ever. It basically came from winning the breakdown, we committed a lot of players on both sides but somehow did it without leaving huge spaces out wide.

Its too tough to judge Englands performance since encase you didn't know, the entire NZ squad had been hit by D&V. So to say that NZ were performing at 50% would be generous considering how ill they all were on the day and the days leading up to the match.
