Yawn:

Scotland in NH - Argentina in SH....

...oh wait, no one counts Argentina do they, or Tonga, or Samoa, or Fiji...unless of course they pull out a win, and then of course it's another victory for the SH...

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

I think Frances' inconsistency is only 'cool' to all us non Frenchmen.... I'd imagine if I was French and donned my supportive t-shirt, Le Coq hat, flag cape and french horn, trundled down to the stadium tooting away on my horn and got my face all painted up and sang La Marseillaise at the top of my voice I'd be thoroughly disappointed to watch my team play like a bunch of headless Coq's - or cocks...

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

....and here we go...

France should have won the last RWC, if not for diabolical refereeing; as noted by experienced players/pundits from many regions (not just France). So stick that one in the NH pile.

SH come up North and beats the NH, so Argentina is included in that racket? and Samoa/Tonga/Fiji etc? Nope, didn't think so...

Which means you're only talking about the 'big 3' - NZ, Aus, and SA...considering Aus has been extremely shaky the last few years, do you think they get comfort, or climb into bed with the Kiwi's and Boks, and enjoy the fact that both those teams won a few games when Aus lost?

I mean they lost to the Lions for crying out loud... only other team to do as badly against the Lions as Aus is Argentina...

I'm not saying that there isn't a gap, but when these teams get lumped into hemispheres it all goes a bit daft. To be honest, you cannot even do that in the NH - Scotland, Wales, Ireland and probably everyone else are cheering for any team playing against England...

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

Second Welsh try looks like an odd move to start the ball rolling, could have easily got called up for blocking...

Thought the outcome was thoroughly deserved in some respect. Wales imo, didn't deserve to win due to their indiscipline. 2 penalty try's? Come on...

Up until now, Williams has shown himself to be a dirty fucker! I think it's a fairly deserved title...

(I will happily change my opinion over time if he changes his attitude)

If it's a penalty right on the line and it stopped a try then it has to be a penalty try, no other call...

It is quite amazing how Wilkinson changed. He has always played extremely well, but in his later years when he started playing in France he actually looked like he was enjoying himself and accompanying that, he looked BETTER than he used to be. I know with experience you become better, but he looked better than experience could make him just by sorting out his headspace.

New Zealand complete series whitewash as Savea gets hat-trick vs England

I am by no means attempting to sound racist, but I remember playing school rugby when we mere infants had hairless legs and schoolboy features (naturally...being at school).. out we trotted onto the pitch and waited for our opposition...

Out charging came the opposition lead by the biggest black bloke you've ever seen (at schoolboy age at least) - legs like great redwood trees and stubble!

It was a long ol' day when the opposition basically played "pass it to the black guy and watch him trample over our team"...

Good point regarding McCaw and his ability to turn invisible to the referees...
