Harlequins pip London Wasps after incredible comeback at Twickenham

Absolute thriller of a game!
Un-questionably the best game in the premiership in recent years.

The game was an epic!, with both teams looking in good form.

The Wallabies snatch dramatic win over Wales at the death

Lets be honest Rhy Priestland has effctivley lost this tour for Wales.
This is highlighted by his poor catch of the ball, where he knocked it on, with the line beckoning as Wales' momentum was building.
Then in the second test he kicked the ball back to Ausgtralia with 2 mins left!!!!!!! All he had to do was to take it in, and keep pocession.
On top of this he does'nt even kick the goals!

The Springboks seal the series win with victory over England

Henkeye Meyer's comments on Englands tries left me annoyed and frustrated.
He stated that all of the English tries came form Springbok mistakes, which is clearly not true as the first ty came from a great break from Ashton, and the third came from a snipe from Youngs after a strong driving maul. Granted the second try came from a Springbok mistake (overthrow) however one of the springboks tries came from a ball going through the scrum (should not have been a try anyway, as it did not touch the props' legs) and the second of which could have been argued to have been held up by Joseph.
Not a fair judgement by Meyer!

The Springboks seal the series win with victory over England

SA were BRUTAL in the first half, I feared a battering,.. but fortunatly England fought back with abundances of passion and grit, a characteristic of which for a young team is very imprssive, and managed to claw back to withing 4 at one stage.
Bismark is AWESOME, unquestionably the best hooker OF ALL TIME! he plays in all postions at the same time! and is so strong.

Englands forward are an absolute unit, especially with Corbisero back! I remember when Jonathan Davies said (during the recent six nations) that the english had lost their forward physicality! how wrong that judgment turned out to be!
Ashtonn and Flood linked up well, back to their 2011 six nations best.

My England team (considering injuries):

1. Corbisero
2. Hartley (c)
3. Cole
4. Plamer
5. Botha
6. Johnson
7. Haskell
8. Waldrom
9. Care
10. Flood
11. Foden
12. Tuilangi (USE HIM ON THE CRASH BALL!!!!!!!)
13. Joseph
14. Ashton
15. Goode

16. Marler
17. Youngs (Tom)
18. Botha
19. Morgan
20. Dickson (Lee)
21. Farell
22. Wade

England can win this one, especially with SA loses, including: Steyn, Alberts and Lambie, all of which have been awesome. 3 form 5, would be an awesome achievment for England, giving them a boost heading into the Autumn internationals. Where I believe that England can win 3 from 4

2 Great teams, in arguably the best test series this summer!

Dan Carter breaks Irish hearts as the All Blacks take series win

Serious respect for ireland (coming form an englishman), you reallly gave it to them, and you achieved what not many SH teams, let alone NH teams, have ever achieved, and that was pushing the All Blacks to the absolute limit, a last minuite drop goal salvaging them a win in their own backyard!.

The All Blacks turn it on at Eden Park with big win over Ireland

Mccaw is Not as good as Pocock (currently)!, Pocock is on another level to any 7 at the moment, Pocock had a huge impact on the game last weekend, and lets be honest Pocock and Genia were the two main reasons for Australia winning that test. I would have classed Warbuton as the next best, however he was outclassed and outmuscled by Pocock last weekend.

The All Blacks turn it on at Eden Park with big win over Ireland

Also in my opinion Richie Mccaw should make way,
as to be honest he is no longer the player he was. I fear that soon New Zealand will be keeping him in the team because they are afraid not to have him in the team, despite the potential dip in his performances, viewing him as a talsiman not a player. Great player, one of the best, but perhaps time to make way for the young guns, as i have no doubt that new zealand have many 7's in the line to replace him, just as good if not better. Its all about looking forward to the next rwc.

Good luck ireland, you'll need it. Its going to be a long series and to be honest out of all the european teams, bar Italy, you were probably in the worst position to face the no 1 team in the world. Get a new coach! because you have so much talent!
