France bounce back with convincing win over Argentina in Tucuman

France were also not the strongest side, as all the internationals players above 30 were not included, and there were a lot of new players (Buttin, Dulin, Machenaud..) or young players with just a handful of selections (Fall, Lapandry). And first match for Michalak for France for ages.
Good experience for everybody here.

Argentina snatch victory from France with late try in Cordoba

Well done Arrgentina, for waiting for french mistakes. The French were awfull, and both teams were full of young guns (bald Argentinians boys as they played their first match as Internationals against Italy the week before).
I hope the second match sees a better french team.
As for the inclusion in the tri nation, remember Italy in the 6 Nations, they were loosing every game at the beginning, and are now better.
I guess the same will happen for Argentina.
And it will be great to see how the Big Three adapt to the passionate Argentinians on their home soil.

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

Ireland was really great and deserved to win the match, it's a pity they didn't.
Each time a game is close, the referee is blamed. That happens iall the time, remember the World Cup.
Now Ireland has to believe they can actually win.
Only France (and England in 2003) from NH were able to win in NZ, so Ireland, be the next !

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

Lol ! I didn't know this was told about my team. You see, we love collective tries :)

As for the Irish, they miss 3 great players and they have no replacement props. The clubs resolved the issue in taking foreign players, instead of getting Irish players into their teams.

I do hope the Irish play better in the next tests, as the ABs made quite some mistakes in this one, that they won't make again.

Vincent Clerc's incredible try saving tackle on Max Evans

The referee said this was a ruck when he explained the yellow card to the Toulouse player.

Quade Cooper returns after seven months off through injury

Thanks for the laugh, mate. For a non native english speaker, that was brilliant !
And for the issue, as a neutral (not kiwi, not aussie) fan, i hope Cooper will return to his best level. We have Australia in november test here, so let's hope and see.

Carl Hayman suspended for four weeks for Zee Ngwenya spear tackle

According to your definition of a spear tackle, this is exactly what Hayman did, driving him to the ground head first :)

Carl Hayman suspended for four weeks for Zee Ngwenya spear tackle

Agreed with that. IMHO, red card if deserves a ban. IRB claims they want to stop these tackles, but these won't stop with yellow cards.
But more than everything else, when on earth will all the referees make the same decisions for the same tackles ?

Motu Matu'u massive hits and great sportsmanship against the Rebels

I've a medical cert so here is what i was taught.
We learnt you must put someone who lost consciousness in the security position because he can die otherwise, apart when a spinal cord damage is obviously at risk, like in motorcycle accidents when you must not remove the head gear either.
From the video, it looks right to me to do so.
