New Zealand. No doubt. They were practically faultless against Ireland, who are a good team. They have such depth to their squad, players who would walk onto any other national team on the planet are not getting chosen because the competition is so fierce for the all black jerseys.
So good to see a pair of All Black socks turning Earls over into the recovery position after the try at 0:20 on the video. Refreshing to see good sportsmanship is still around, even if it only rears its head occasionally. Massive hand off by Gear, though Earls should know better than to try make a tackle on anyone like that.
That Clermont prop needs to learn how to take a punch. Cullen shouldn't have thrown the punch in the first place but the dive is more deserving of a yellow than the punch in my opinion. Leave that on the football pitch. Too much diving happening in french rugby at the moment, especially from the likes of Para. Man up, take the hit, get him back with a big LEGAL tackle or clearout at the next ruck. None of this pussying around. »
