England win in Melbourne to take first ever series victory in Australia

Regarding the errors and possession stats, are they somewhat skewed? 24 errors to engs 10, just over double right? But with more than 3 times the possession you're bound to make more errors?? Just like I've never lost a game of aussie rules....why? Because I've never played it before....

Bok-lash earns South Africa an incredible comeback victory

I'd agree with your odds. Ireland will be battered and bruised and now the boks will have their tails up!

Ah yes, I totally forgot about that 2v1 penalty, it makes total sense to me that 2 penalties should go against the 1, however I guess in the eyes on the law Moores was the last penalty.

As for that block on Farrell, totally agree it was very soft, I don't think (Farley was it?) actually slowed Farrell, and Farrell got his moneys worth by sending the guy tumbling.

I tuned in to see Ireland leading a lot of points to 3 and though "eh, bloody hell" and thought Ireland must have it in the bag, went away, when I heard later they'd lost the game I couldn't believe it. I still don't know the ins and the outs of it, but what a shambles to give away a lead like that.

Well done SA, commiserations Ireland, bet both teams are itching to meet at the 3rd test!

Actually, anther thing that popped into my head. Nonu was clearly having a chuckle in the dressing room, but he was definitely KO'd on the field... do you think this was him trying to convince people he's fine?

He certainly comes across as the kind of candidate for trouble later on in life due to head clashes...

New Zealand seal the series as Wales drop off in second half

At least Gatland and the rest of the Welsh team will get another crack on the Lions tour in 2017...... *rolls eyes*

A beautiful show of respect all round. Tuitavake down on his knees at Nonus side, checking he's ok, then Nonu fist bumping him as he walks off... brilliant stuff...

Tuitavake giving him a tap to the head for good measure as he goes off as well ;) haha

Lessons learned here boys and girls? Respect is massively important....and so is going low!

Erm, also have any of the nutritional staff got notes or a record for Bastareaud or has he some how flown under the radar and been missed? Seems the bloke is hell bent on becoming a sumo wrestler...

Views on Jouberts efforts?

I'm really not a fan of the guy and I thought his lack of carding was highlighted, but then his explanation at one point at how England were 25 minutes without indiscipline, so it was back to a warning seemed quite fair? (In two minds)
I felt for Moore though, he looked at his wits end - I'd imagine England were up to all sorts of things that the referee missed and which he didn't, "the niggle" as it was called definitely seemed to spill over quite a bit, would love to see the tunnel footage!

I was utterly disgusted by Owen Farrell poaching a well worked forward try!

Actually, the forwards in the England side seemed quite handy putting the boot to the ball.

Georgian flanker sent off for kicking Irish player in U20s match

Your English is good. I agree with you that it is not something that is often punished. Kicking a player in the head is not the way to go, however something needs to be done to stop players holding on..
