Brilliant Richie McCaw lineout move first done vs Springboks by Samoa in 2013

Great move. I enjoy mauls too; just different moves, can't really say which one is more entertaining.

Wales cut loose in Rome for unbelievable second half against Italy

Leigh Halfpenny has to stop tackling like that, putting his head in the way of knees, or he might get seriously injured one of these days.

Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

I disagree with your humble opinion on Irish players not supporting their weight. The Argentine commentators of the channel I was watching the game on even said "he had to get one wrong" when he penalized that one time you refer to.

Still, I liked your comment. I could very well be wrong, I once learned the trick of not really trying to steal the ball but putting more of an effort on holding onto the ball and player, and even putting some of my weight on it, to get penalties for not releasing in rucks. It has served me well.

Loved the Uruguay tries, the first one came after a great backs passes, the second after pure forward stubbornness.

South Africa stun Scotland with eight-try romp in Port Elizabeth

I remember at least for RWC 2011 the four group leaders were chosen for being the first 4 in the rankings at some specific point (NZ, RSA, AUS, ARG). It was the same for England 2015 (the same but replace ARG with FRA).

In any case, it is idiotic that the first and second ranked teams don't get a shot at facing each other at the final if they win all their games. To borrow from DrG: the IRB using their brains...
