However, I will be the first to lower the tone and say that, in addition to the quality of the rugby, I find that Harvey try rather arousing. Especially when she throws those steps around the halfway line...

Harvey / Canada for me. And I thought I was going to be the first to say that, but it seems there's an overwhelming consensus on here at least.

Test Rugby Results - November 15th weekend

If I were in charge of Australia I'd definitely have Cooper at 10. I believe he's rubbed coaches and team-mates up the wrong way in the past, but he can't be that much of a tosser! Easily their most creative and dynamic playmaker.

France name unchanged side after five try win over Fiji

Classic Fiji for the last try - bloody love to see that coast-to-coast stuff.
Best moment for me - Tikoritima (sp?) hand off around the 1:20 mark.

Referee decisions in spotlight as New Zealand prove too good for England

Excellent comment mate, agree with every word of that.

Referee decisions in spotlight as New Zealand prove too good for England

I think Nige could hear the TMO and decided to over-rule him based on his viewing of the replay. This in my opinion - based on the fact that Nigel Owens was clearly correct - is good, strong leadership and refereeing.

The fact that Owens has attracted criticism from both sides illustrates two things:
1) On balance he probably got it about right.
2) The game of rugby is very fast following football down the toilet with all the bitching and moaning about refs.

Having said that, I do share the concern over undue influence from TV producers. There does need to be a rational and sensible debate about it and guidelines made. My view is that replays should only be shown in the stadium if requested by the ref and more real-speed footage used instead of the super-slow-mo which often distorts facts.
