Loos like cooper has to up his game to stay at test level. Barnes has to be the pick of the Aussies.

I immediately looked at the fixtures on the RWC app on my phone and it said The tournament has finished!!!

Had to double check online.

Yeah, the Oz match, that final belt by Wales was great, but they had a few missed opportunities to take it, so a bit of a shame they didn't.

Still, being a neutral, I still really enjoyed it. Shame about some of those injuries though, Cooper one looked pretty nasty, out for what, 6-7 months they said?

Anyway, the final is on at some ungodly hour down my way, so probably won't be able to get a copy of it till evening time, so I'll probably bow out of this thread till I see the final
