Best Tries from week two of the End of Year Tests

The samoan are capable of worst :-)
Not sure the your second link = yellow. What would be the "legal" ground for a yellow?

And I hate to say that there was a bit of theatre by the french on some occasion. Not real faking as you can see in soccer, but, let s say, not trying to resist and falling a bit quickly. Which can be seen as clever VS Samoa but still, i dont like it.
If I remember correctly, it was vakatawa who kicked and chase once, the samoan defender goes shoulder to shoulder and vakatawa clearly didnt try to resist, but jumped like he was pushed with full force. Maybe it's not that obvious. But I 'd rather have him try to resist and outrun the defender. Surely he was capable to stay on his feet had he wanted to.

Can't say if its due to the lack of rest but its bad news for sure. Wasnt it the first time they had more rest, for once?

Regarding the "vote" its hard to choose. The full running speed of the first australian try really impressed me a lot. Love the romanian kick. The flying japanese. And of course, the last one, from the ABs, is just perfect.

So good to see the french playing like that! They seem to be finally able to play together. At first when I watched the other games' highlights I thought "yeah well, samoa was really poor, the french victory isn't that impressive". Then I had another look at the FR-SAM highlights and... maybe Samoa wasnt playing at its best, but there is nothing to say about those french attack moves. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Let's see how things will go VS Australia. Looking forward!

France bounce back with convincing victory over Argentina in second Test

Agreed on that back row. Well, that's unless someone could clone Picamoles...

France bounce back with convincing victory over Argentina in second Test

Read on Rugbyrama that Noves wants to keep on playing with three n°8 players. He doesn't think he needs a real 3rd line tackler. The idea being "you don't need to tackle when you have the ball".
Well that's a change for sure, Dusautoir being the only certainty in the previous team!

France bounce back with convincing victory over Argentina in second Test

It was pretty hard to find a place to watch that game with all that soccer going on! Eventually, home streaming was the only option! I guess not many people watched it but still i'd like to hear unbiased opinions on that game! It was a real massacre... Two or three other tries could have been scored, and a couple of penalties. Could have been 50-0.
Do you think the Pumas were drunk or something? I'd like to rejoyce but do not dare.
Anyway some really good news for the french with this "B team" performing well. Serin looks like an exceptionnal scrum half.

Scotland come up trumps against France at Murrayfield

Thanks, that would explain it. Forward pass by the french then back to an infringement by the scots (the collapsing the maul thing) hence the touch. That makes sense.

Scotland come up trumps against France at Murrayfield

Oh by the way can anyone explain why Fickou's try was disallowed? Was watching the game in a crowded pub and all I saw was:
- Fickou crossing and grounding the ball;
- Jackson raising a hand;
- a banner on tv saying "collapsing the maul"
- and then a french touch.

There is a huge gap between "clinical" and this drunk surgeons team :-)
