Test Rugby Results - November 22nd weekend

Agreed. Not taking away Hansen's achievements, but what Schmidt done with Ireland was like a magic trick.

Referee decisions in spotlight as New Zealand prove too good for England

Well DrugbyD if you've watched as many All Blacks games as I have you'll know that the All Blacks always lifts a gear whenever they're yellow carded. Did you see how the All Blacks were dominating possession and territory during Dan Coles' sin bin (and scoring a penalty goal as well)?

Owens was clearly bribed to assist the All Blacks by yellow carding them at the second half.

Wallabies edge Barbarians in classic BaaBaas fixture at Twickenham

I know Barbarian matches are meant to be adventurous, but this is still better as a lot of actual international test matches. More fun and thrills than the ABs walking over a clearly mismatched USA.

Record crowd witnesses All Blacks in full flight as they crush USA

I wonder if someone with more rugby knowledge can explain this:
Does it appear that the USA defense is always lagging behind at the touchlines?

Many times in this match I can see the ABs relay the ball wide, and the wing (or whoever) ends up with lots of room to accelerate, and the poor Eagles backs have to play catch-up. This is something I don't see them get when they play the Wallabies or the Springboks.

Is it simply because the Eagles players are slower? Or are their defensive lines simply lacking in organisation?
