    Well Northern Ireland is, and the Irish team is made up of both Northern Ireland and the Republic so they're half UK

    There are still games to play, I think they're saving Crotty and Coles for those (who are both prone to head injuries).
    This has got to be the hottest take of them all.

    I'm actually more excited to see the aus vs eng game. Probably because I'm so confident in the abs, but also because that's a massive game too

    Japan v SA is the most exciting game.

    Good point I actually forgot about that game to be honest

    Irish are already moaning that Nigel Owens will let the game flow too freely and favour the All Blacks

    "Looking at a player's physical ability made it easy to select them too early and not take into consideration the toll the role takes on their "mental fortitude." - Hansen

    Example:

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/...he-wasnt-ready
    Was pretty obvious Isaia Toeava wasn't going to make it at international level, doesn't matter if a player is 19 or 29 it's whether they can consistently show that they have good mental hardness & composure, Super Rugby is an ideal competition to see if they have those qualities because of all the international players involved... in Super Rugby Toeava showed his mental game was a real weakness, he'd make a lot of silly unforced errors through very poor concentration & lack of composure.

    Will be an interesting match, I see the TAB have got England only paying $1.29 for the win while Aussie is up at $3.35, as much as I hate to say it I think they're selling Aussie a bit short. I'm gonna watch it mainly for the shots of Cheika up in the box waving his hands in the air while shaking his head and mouthing obscenities at the monitor every time a call goes against the Wallabies.

    I think wallabies are the better team but we know they sometimes never turn up

    Should be a good game boys!

    Who to support in Aus vs Eng? Smug Northern Hemisphere vs Smug Southern?

    What a game so far!

  15. Post
    Aus with 18 phases on their first go with the ball was impressive. England have been good soaking up the pressure.

    Supporting aussie 100%

    Two very good tries there

  18. Post
    England never offside eh? Or always throw straight ball into the lineouts.

  19. Post
    Those conversions were pretty impressive, that 2nd try sunk the Aussies. Strange tactics from Australia, trying to run out of their own 22 in a world cup knockout match, kicking off down the middle so England can choose which side they want to kick to instead of forcing them to a side and cutting down the angle, very strange.

    Score before and after halftime. All the best teams....

    Yeah sure is.

    Worst part of the whole tournament, video refs interrupting or turfs cutting up?

    Gtfo England Australia. How good is this game?

    Waiting for Skeen to **** it up

    Garces allowing rucks to be slowed down a lot. Working in England's favour.

    Getting over these scrum resets.
