Wallabies end tour on a high with victory over Wales in Cardiff

He couldn't call advantage because there was a knock on. Also the only reason North scored was because the Aussies (Hooper and Folau) stopped playing after they saw the ball being knocked on

All Blacks claim the Rugby Championship after epic battle with the Springboks

Just wait a few days after the game and usually someone posts the full game on youtube. Just search for South Africa vs All blacks 2013 full or something along those lines and you should find it. Sometimes rugbydump also posts full match replays.

England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

I had the impression that the problem was the pass to TD, which went slightly forward, not his knock on, which was fine since it came off his boot. So they were actually called for a forward pass, not a knock on IMHO. TBH i didn't hear what the ref or commentators said as I was watching it down at the pub, so it might be that Joubert gave a different explanation.

Stephen Donald yellow card for shoving Dan Bowden in the face

Haha did the TMO really just say that he didnt catch the number of the Leicester player? Isnt that what the replay is for?

Kurtley Beale late try snatches win for Wallabies over Wales

Funny though that the best thing Kurtley did was when Barnes played first receiver and Kurtley was shadowing a runner on the wing (as fullbacks do).
Don't think he's a test 10.. Hope someone else will be 10 against the Lions. Either Barnes (despite some of his problems), O'Connor (not really tested), or Leliafano (not tested at test level, though the best flyhalf in Australian super rugby last season)

Kurtley Beale late try snatches win for Wallabies over Wales

Hmm personally never got annoyed by Jonathan Davies, always thought he did an alright job in the games I've heard him commentate. I got really annoyed at the commentator in this game though. Thought he was really biased towards Wales (not only cheering for them, but always criticizing the ref for just about every decision against Wales and saying how he was too lenient on the Aussies, like when he didnt card Palu for his beauty of a tackle). It also annoyed me when he was whinging about Sharpe taking the conversion.

The Rugby World Cup 2015 Pools drawn and IRB awards given

Oh sorry for the double post, but forgot to ask:
Why the hell are they alreeady drawning the pools now, before every team actually qualified?????
Couldn't they have waited another year or two even? Then the groups would've also been fairer, since in 3 years time teams that are good now might be going through a bad phase and vice versa..

Which other coach would you have given it to?

The only other coaches that even deserve a mention are probably Saint-Andre and maybe Lancaster.. Though is it really that much easier to keep a winning team winning than to get a "bad" team and make it better?
Hansen obviously did a fantastic job keeping the ABs focused and doing what they are doing best. Always hard on a coach if he takes over a good side and doesn't get credit for keeping it good (e.g. Barcelona coaches in football).

Was always gonna be Carter or McCaw. McCaw probably deserved it a bit more but then again he already won it like 50 times...

The Rugby World Cup 2015 Pools drawn and IRB awards given

Well during the draw I was saying "don't pick Australia, don't pick Australia" about 50 times when the final group A slot was up, so I guess I jinxed it.
As everyone already pointed out, way too early to make predictions, but based on recent years I think Australia will probably be second, since they are unable to win more than 3 in a row. So I'm guessing Australia will beat either Wales or England and lose to the other nation, hopefully then coming in 2nd.

Should be interesting how Argentina and Samoa keep developing until it starts. Scotland and South Africa might face some trouble there, and not only because of the hard hits. Same goes for Argentina.
