England break their Springboks hoodoo with convincing win at Twickenham

This is where I'd insert some sort of 'won't be too long before your next trip then' kind of joke, but England are actually doing pretty well.

I do like the way Eddie Jones is still pretty nonchalant about the whole thing, rating Englands performance at just above average... It has an air of arrogance about it - "beat you even though we were average" but by the same token he is more focussed on his own lot than the opposition. Definitely an inspiring coach.

I wonder how long he'll be with England, where he will go next etc?

I'm guessing that the team in black had either won by a margin or had lost by one as they appeared to firstly be sort of stunned but secondly not appear to give two hoots about chasing this.

I shan't be showing this to anyone due to the fact that it may cause other to try and emulate it... Which is fine in itself as long as they agree to lie in the 'tunnel' at the end of the game and have both teams walk over them should it fail....

Wales edge Argentina for confidence building win

I think we're sadly well on the way to that judging by the UK news. England players getting something like £20k a match, someone suggesting top players should earn £1mil a year...

Don't get me wrong, it's a hard game and you have a limited career at the top, there are also not enough coaching jobs for everyone etc, but that money is a tad excessive and I believe it could start to breed an attitude of "so what I'm rich!" Rather than currently (some) players are doing very well for themselves, but they still require an amount of grace and appeal.

I'd be more accepting of a £20k bonus for a tournament well played or something that may also drive a little incentive...

When I think of the massive sports in this world, soccer, NFL (American but huge), basketball, all these sports have issues with petulant prima donnas whining about the service they assume they should receive... Rugby is still ever so slightly lower down where players are 'just lads', I'd hate for that to change much more than it already has...

England break their Springboks hoodoo with convincing win at Twickenham

I agree with both sentiments above, what grabs me more however is the injury side of things....

Perhaps in the pro game it's not thought about, perhaps they come off the field, reassess and see what's on, or who made it unscathed etc... But it would be a bit heart breaking to see someone get damaged in a freak injury when the game is clearly done and dusted...

But I agree, with the AB comparison, after the kick they'd run that ball right back at the opposition, smashing doors and heads as they pass...

He's such a petulant pleb! Maybe if he spent more time focusing on his own shit than flapping around and squawking like some distressed seagull then he'd actually stop tries like that. He could have done so much more to try and disrupt that, but no he's flapping around moaning. ..

What a dick.

Kuridrani scores late try as Australia break Scotland hearts again

Cheers for the info Jimmy. It's hard to tell sometimes from highlights and from media outlets, especially as even when teams are poor they can produce a couple good highlight moments.

I hope Scotland really do improve, for their sake, and hopefully long before all the current boys in blue retire... Would hate to see them hit their peak just as most of them come up for retirement!

Cheers again.

Kuridrani scores late try as Australia break Scotland hearts again

Unfortunately missed the match. What does the scoreline really say?

We're Scotland a team to contend with? Or did a tired Australian team falter at the start then find their feet?

The usual trend for Autumn/Summer internationals is to mention that the visiting team is tired, but I've not heard that this year.

I'd like to think for rugby sense, that the NH v SH gap isn't as vast as it once was and I'd hope Scotland do become decent contenders in any match.. I tire of the 'we were nearly there, next time' statements. Best of luck to all teams in their next games!
