Excellent game this morning

Steve Ganson doesn't get any better for keeping though...........................whistle happy first half...................lost the pea second half and not enough bottle to sort out a bit of biff!!!!

Sounds like the pomsvfrogs game was as dull as ditch water though

Forgot to add the usual innane commentary from Gladys and Stevo

Wish Sky would give the job to Baz and Tez at least it would be entertaining

Just wish Eddie would shut his pie hole,anyone who as watched as much footy as he has should know the Aussies play to the final whistle always!!
I fear a backlash this weekend,England were ordinary,the convicts cant play as bad 2 games in a row.The Kiwis should put 50 on the French as well.

Just going to snatch a few hours shut eye before watching they game. Starts here at 15 after midnight.

Think I will need a few glasses of the old vino to cope with the commentary again

Could be a bit of biff but I think the result nailed on. Just a matter of how many will the poms concede

Much better,showed some balls for a change....at half time i was worried we were looking at 50-60+ tonking.I liked the fact they managed to ruffle a few feathers,Slater and Thurston particularly.Just wonder how much the second half was down to the fact they had the game in the bag.Usual sh1te from Phil Gould over here,Poms are crap,international footy is a joke,why do we bother etc etc,Channel 9 really know how to promote the game of RL withhim and Andrew Voss taking potshots at the tournament and England.
Thought young Tompkins found his feet a bit second half,and Eastmond did well when he came on,Crabtree and Burgess were a real handful as well.
Roll on the Kiwis.......

I thought the Kiwis were a bit ordinary against the French given the frogs were missing 9 first choice players the last 1/4 gave a very flattering look to the score

I was impressed with old Eorl Crabtree the Aussies certainly found him a handful ....and young Burgess against Moimoi this weekend should be interesting...

The English pack took its time to get moving Peacock and Morley had very ordinary first halves..although Morley from 10 years ago showed up after the break ..Kyle Eastmond also impressed ...he had the Aussies on the backfoot whenever he had the ball ....

The Kiwis steamrollered the FRench in the end ...but I for one thought the first 60 minutes proved the French have improved ...and for 60 minutes the French forwards took it to the Kiwis ....in the end stamina took its toll ...give them another 3 years and maybe we will have 4 teams competing

I wondered if i had watched the same game as all the aussies over here because when the 7 news sports report came on they made out they had flogged us and had totally dominated the game it was like they had beaten us by 40 points +, the way things were going another 15 mins and I would have fancied us to win the game

Wifey dragged me to the U.S. and away from 6 Nations. New to this, but ready for the ridicule...how does one watch Rugby Union/ International Rugby Union in this God forsaken country? Could really do with an answer by 9am 7/11 for the England v. Australia game.

Thanks!
