The Wallabies claim comfortable victory over Ireland in Dublin

A similar score? I'm Irish and I'd happily take that!

Sona Taumalolo and Yoann Maestri red carded for France vs Tonga fight

In that incident, O'Connell only did what the vast majority of players, fans and, dare I say it, referees want to see. There are many incidents of players punching Cudmore and only getting yellows!

Sorry, I meant 1st try, not winning try.

New Zealand hold off late charge by spirited France side

Referees and touch judges are usually pretty good with spotting players ahead of the kicker. Strange that they were missed in both the winning try for NZ and the winning try for SA at the weekend. I'm not complaining, I'm not bitter, I understand its part of sport... but given what some referees are holding up play for these days to go to TV ref, these incidents seemed a little strange.

Wilkinson, Giteau and Armitage combine for classic Toulon try vs Glasgow

Don't mean to take away from a great take on the run from Wilkinson, but calling it an "aerial contest" is being kind to the Glasgow player!

The Wallabies run riot in Rosario with big win over Argentina

I think the Argentines have a lot to be proud of over the course of their first two years playing in the tournament. They may be winless, but there have been some very close games (including a draw) and some games where maybe a slightly different mentality or game strategy could have ended in a different result. It's obvious that up against these three other teams, they will be exposed from time to time, as was the case at the weekend. A lot of people were expecting their first win, but the team didn't show up... is it a case of preferring the underdog role?

The Wallabies run riot in Rosario with big win over Argentina

Having watched the entire game, I'd tend to agree that Argentina played crap (and they'd probably not take too much offence at that statement). It's always difficult to gauge how much one team's crapness is a direct result of the other team's performance levels, but my overall impression after this game was that Argentina made it difficult for themselves. I have not seen the official statistics for the game so may be wrong, but it seemed like they missed an extraordinary number of tackles and were guilty of lots of handling errors in attack. The highlight reel doesn't show it, but a number of the Aussie tries came immediately after the Argies were in promising attacking positions and contrived to knock on or throw a loose pass - within one or two phases, the Aussies had scored.

Rory Arnold banned for bite in process of scoring first ever Currie Cup try

Indeed. Try biting your own forearm to see how much pressure you need to exert to leave something that can clearly be identified as a bite mark!
