There really was some world class whinging by the Aussie commentators on foxtel

Apparently the ref hardly made a correct decision

Top notch stuff from the Oirish . Just goes to show form guides go out the window at world cups, it means nothing until there is a win (As Kiwi fans know all too well).

The same ref who was blowing up alot in the England game - against England.

I did have a sense of deja vu, have to be honest.

For us poor folk watching GEM it was good to see the Aussie commentators giving credit where it was due even if there was a lot of the use of 'We'.

The history book tells us that barely a point differentiates the two in World Cup matchups...

a cracking game. I love a game where by test teams play ruby and the front row is found out. I like to see tries scored but games are still lost and won in the scrum - the way it should be.
