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

Jeez how good does Pollard look?! On another note... not sure how to feel about the state of Scottish rugby. Too early to write off Vern Cotter because he's got results from faltering sides in the past but I can't say the future looks massively bright.

Midweek Madness - Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

What about Scully?! Hat trick here and was showing up Nalaga when they faced off in the HC this year, had an outstanding first season in the premiership too.

England impress with big midweek win against the Crusaders

Also, whilst I still appreciate the sentiment, it definitely is two mismatched sides, but calling it purely an ITM cup side is a little strong considering; McNicholl, Taylor, Laulala, Tupou, Ellis, Taufua, Tuitavake, Adam Whitelock, Luke Whitelock and Flynn all played against the force a couple of weeks back. Of which I believe 5 have been capped for the All Blacks.

People are gonna get awful pissed off if you keep spamming your youtube channel like that. This is a place for discussion not mindless self promotion.

If you go that route, you also gotta say England 2nd/3rd string dominate ITM cup team.

New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin

I'm liking the look of your pick! Though I think considering Burns' performance in the first test makes him fully deserving of a bench place over Cipriani. Also theres been a couple of hints that Care isn't fully fit.

New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin

The AB's got up to the 110%... for a 20 min period at the start of the second half. Wasn't vintage by either side but even I as an England fan recognise that the points deficit should have been far greater. I just can't work out whether its down to character or blind luck that thats not the case.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

I've never understood this premise. If that player is a fullback, play him at fullback. Its international rugby, no one should be played out of position. I get that its less pressurised to put him on the wing but if he's seriously being looked at as a potential 15, he's gotta be able to show what he can do in that role specifically. Also, to my knowledge he's never been a regular on the wing.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

I would agree that Care is most definitely the form 9 at the moment, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that Youngs isn't international standard by any stretch, I just think at the moment its a mixture of lack of having a break in a while and maybe to some extent complacency about his game is causing him to under-perform. In the past he's shown a far better all round game than Care ever has.
