Rugby A Game For Gentlemen


#781

Useless twat Cheika trolling the RFU. I am in the EJ not wanted after 2019 camp.


#782

Great start.

Aussie scrum murdered there.


#783

Well they all ranted on about Falau’s try in the first half, but that one from Daly was as good, if not better.


#784

Looks like we have our own Falau on the wing as well.


#785

Monster isn’t he

Great prospect


#786

Desperately unlucky there


#787

Really happy to see Tuilagi back in an England shirt!


#788

Turning into a proper hammering now!


#789

Wilson so unlucky not to get MotM! Sinckler has played well mind!


#790

They both played well.

Pity about the last second try, but very happy with what was a comprehensive victory.


#791

Yep, and a lot of new faces coming through.


#792

I went to the pub for the second half, turned into a good choice!


#793

Wales 20 - 11 South Africa. Tidy.

Shame about the injury to the MotM Ellis Jenkins in the last moments.


#794

Not a very happy visit for any of the SH countries really.

The ABs seem to have lost their invincibility super power, they squeaked past England and were well beaten by Ireland, South Africa beat the ABs twice and didn’t look that menacing here and Australia are looking a shadow of the great teams of the past.
Wales looked good today, but the real test will come in the 6N where they have home advantage against England and Ireland, and will need tp perform well against both to be considered a threat in the WC.
England also looked good today but against a week Aussie team.
Scotland do what they always do, promise a lot, look good but somehow fail to deliver.
Ireland look awesome and must be faves for the 6N

I think results this month are largely irrelevant with regard to the next World Cup. Once you are out of the pool stages, it’s knockout rugby. The form of 12 months ago does not come into it.


#796

Not totally sure about that, I think teams take a lot of confidence with them into tournaments.
For instance I don’t think the England WC winning team really believed they were world beaters until they went to NZ and Aus and beat them both in their own back yard a year before the WC.
Ireland will face the ABs with a totally different mindset next year (if they play them) than they would have done without the Chicago game but more importantly getting a win in Ireland for the first time ever will have instilled belief in to every single player.

#798

Hmm, something wrong there. BBC title is amiss.


#799

Yes, but the key thing is France lost :rofl:

Headline fail.
