Wales come from behind to beat hosts England at Twickenham

Incredible how we managed to pull that off with so many players injured towards the end. England didn't help themselves with selection or coaching, Burgess and Barritt were picked for defence and they did well at stopping Roberts crashing through, but when it went wide they were clueless and pretty slow to react.
I felt bad for Farrell because he seemed to be the only English player who stayed composed and calm. Brown really got too fired up and it affected his game.
All in all, guts from both sides but our experience proved the difference I think. England are in serious trouble if they don't step up against Australia.

Josh Valentine knocked out by brutal upright tackle from Taiasina Tuifua

Because that was a complete accident.

England get the better of France with some great tries at Twickenham

Watson's finish for that first try was insane. Can you imagine Cuthbert or North being able to catch that from a standing start? Because I seriously can't. Burgess looked powerful but I don't think he's quite there yet. Slade was a class act though.
Picamoles was an absolute monster for France.

Awesome Argentina upset sloppy Springboks for first time ever

Argentina can really turn on the class sometimes. SA look really out of sorts heading into this world cup.

Ireland cruise to comfortable RWC warmup win over Wales in Cardiff

Apparently it's some reference to gold found in welsh mines.. It just looks terrible and I thought we might get a good jersey for a change.

Ireland cruise to comfortable RWC warmup win over Wales in Cardiff

We were awful, Ireland were clinical. I know we used a young side but come on, at least play like you're fighting for a world cup place.
The gap in class between Tipuric & Faletau and the rest of our team was so obvious to see.

Hooper and Pocock to start for Wallabies in championship decider vs New Zealand

Hooper's face though, he's missing a chromosome for sure.

Mammoth tackle as two giant Polish forwards meet in Cup Final

I'm surprised more teams don't send scouts to check out the monsters over there.

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

Really wish teams would try more moves like these. So much more entertaining than a catch and drive and often, a lot more effective.
