Rugby World Cup 2011 Team of the Tournament

I don't understand why Kaino has been selected at 6 in nearly every RWC XV. I've seen a few with hum there but I really didn't find him that great during the RWC. He was solid, but that's it. Not particularly great in any aspect of play. And there are so many poor choices and players out of position in those 3 teams there.

Guardian: Carter as 10? He only played 2 matches against poor opposition. Harinordoquy played really well towards the end, but for the majority of matches he was not good. Same goes for Clerc except he didn't play as well at the end. There were much more obvious choices for those positions.

New Zealand Herald: Victor Matfield was average all tournament compared to his usual standard. And there were better options at 8 and 9 than Lobbe and Yachvilli. And I'm an Irish fan, but BOD as the best 13 in the tournament? Don't think so.

ITV: Just more of the same really.

Radike Samo's big hit on Bryan Habana in RWC Quarter Final

Aussies are the masters (greatest overusers) of the inside pass. Probably best not to use it against them.

Also, the Italians played very dirty all match. I rate Parisse very highly, but he was very dirty today. Didn't like how he played.

Russia's Valery Tsnobiladze suspended for headbutt on Sean O'Brien

Oh right, misread that. Would have loved if they broadcast some of those angles.

RD, I was watching the broadcast live and this is exactly what they showed. There weren't any more angles. Why do they not show things like this? Really annoying. People want to see more than one replay angle.
