Cracking games this morning, well worth getting up for. Hope tomorrow's games live up to today's standards. Seriously excited for that France-Wales semi-final. How strong was the welsh back row to nullify the irish triple threat? Lydiate made 24 tackles for the game, Warburton 18 and Charteris made 16 in the first half alone. Serious numbers!

Everyone's very excited here in Wales but let's not get ahead of ourselves. France have loads to offer but we can beat them and then it's a SH side in the final and we haven't beaten any of them since Australia back in 2008 (or was it 9?) even though we've played them at home every November. We can beat the Aussies or the Boks but we have no chance against the All Blacks so let's hope one of the other two does us a favour and knocks them out. Saying all of that, as long as we're not humiliated, most people in Wales would take a New Zealand v Wales final even if we lost it.

Somehow this blog entry appears in the RWC links on the right side but not on the front page (whose first post is currently the one about "growing up all black and blue". Shouldn't this post about the quarter-finals appear on the front page? (or I am just weary-eyed and seeing everything cross?)

Still heartbroken but well done Wales. Ireland suffer being the favourites as usual. The Welsh fully deserved of a semi-final place
