Rugby must be in a pretty bad shape when everyone ends up talking about the referee after games. The breakdown needs to be sorted out and refereed fairly or this will continue to blight the game. If you were to use this game to explain the breakdown to a novice you'd give up after 5 minutes. »
I hope the French show up and give them a game. The game needs a good show to sign off the world cup and showcase the sport around the world. Still like to see NZ win it, they deserve it for being the best team for the last four years at least.
Ireland seriously need to improve to have any chance against Australia. They played like strangers out there. The U.S. had no pack, scrum, maul or lineout so instead of pounding through they kept trying to play slick moves in terrible conditions. Ridiculous. »
