A great game - the best so far, but I think was always going to be. Wales were superb, but The Bokke have the experience and did enough to win. Wales were intense, but leading up to their 2nd try, The Bokke played with an intensity that only NZ, and maybe England, could match.

Well done to Wales. I posted on here recently that they are a shower of shit. I was dead wrong. They're not.

It does pose the question though of what's better:

1. Glorious failure a la Wales

or

2. Play crap but win a la England? ( or SA for that matter).

Agree it was the best game so far, hopefully more where that came from

So what is it about this "new" ball?

Everyone has been shit at kicking...all of them....

The Wales match though, one of the best yet....but that kick, oh how that will hurt...

As the Duke of Wellington is supposed to have said. "Being born in a stable, does not make one a horse". Do we remember him as being Irish or English?

Not so sure about that, but experience paid off in the end. I'm happy enough.

I've never seen Wales play with such intensity. It was good to see. Hope they make it to the QFs.

Yep, best game so far. Nail biting actually. Great to see.

Dunno about the new ball. Don't worry, it won't be a factor.

Who is your worst commentator?

I thought I was rid of Stuart Barnes by moving to Oz, but apparently not.

The Welsh always play better in sheep territories. It's a like a home away from home for them.


....in fact NZ would be like one massive Red-light District for them!

The welsh will get hammered when it matters.

The Boks better pull something out. I think the resting has not given the team match fitness.

How any nation brought up on deep fried haggis and Irn Bru can play sport is beyond me.
