We were treated to a great day of Test match rugby yesterday, with some thrilling games and top quality tries. After leading 17-0 then trailing 20-17, Ireland beat the Wallabies in what was probably the game of the day. Argentina also picked up a great win, with victory over France in Paris.
Wales looked like they were about to spring an upset over New Zealand when they led 16-15 with ten minutes left, but the All Blacks stepped up a gear to win 34-16.
England and Samoa battled it out at Twickenham after a controversial week for the visitors. The scrappy match ended with a home win and a great gesture, as both sides linked arms, formed a huddle and had a quiet moment, saying a prayer and showing great solidarity (see below).
Romania 18 – 9 Canada | Portugal 29 – 20 Namibia | Fiji 20 – 14 USA
England 28 – 9 Samoa | France 13 – 18 Argentina | Ireland 26 – 23 Australia
Italy 6 – 22 South Africa | Scotland 37 – 12 Tonga | Wales 16 – 34 New Zealand
More from each game to follow over the next few days. Do you think Ireland are now genuine Rugby World Cup contenders? Have Wales made progress, or were the All Blacks always in control? Are Argentina looking a more complete outfit? Discuss, dissect etc in the comments below.
