Another look at the Greatest Game Ever Played - Wallabies vs All Blacks 2000

1-Yes you're right, wales v scotland was a great game

2-that being better than this match is a subjective opinion of yours, which I understand and respect

3-I'm sorry, but there is no way in hell this match sucked. It was a great display of rugby, a hard fought contest between the two greatest teams in the world at that time.

Cheers :)

Nice skills. I agree, he played well on Saturday. Hope he gets back in the Aussie colors :)

RD, speaking of funny little things during the game, can you dig up Neil Jenkins' accidental falcon in the Lions game vs Combined Country, after Hogg hits the post on a conversion kick, in the 13th minute? Makes for fun watching ;)

Schalk Brits suspended for three weeks for striking Owen Farrell

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I still have serious doubts on that incident. No video evidence, ref was having a shocker of a game, and 6N interests.
Parisse also didn't play the remorse card in front of the citing commission (which usually plays pretty well in trying to reduce a ban), but he appealed the decision twice and always vehemently denied insulting the official.

Right Stubby, really mature. That's what we need, another Callum Clark but at higher and more prestigious level. Way to promote rugby's image around the world.

I'm sure Sergio Parisse, one of the best players in the world at the number 8 position and since 2008 captain to Italy's team, knows how to deal and speak with refs. And I doubt a light graze on the shoulder can be called a "soccer element".

Hartley on the other hand....but hey, that's OT

Moving on? What's next?...

I do not blame Farrell either, anybody in rugby would take exception to being clocked in the jaw, holding on or not.

I am a bit surprised at Brits, I thought his playing experience would've taught him not to fall in these little bait traps. To his defense though, that wasn't a nothing ruck for him. If you look at it again you'll see he was in great position to try and charge down Phillips' kick, and being held on in those cases is just plain frustrating.
With Steve Walsh there he could've done anything to make him notice the foul, just start banging on Farrell's forearm or call out to the ref!

Perfect call by Walsh, important game or not. As the commentator said, it's not a red card offense.
