Rugby World Cup 2019
 
All off to an interesting start.
New Zealand battered by South Africa for 20 minutes and 5 minutes later NZ have the game safe.
France had a close shave against Argentina
England came through a tough encounter with Tonga despite some very generous refereeing towards the Pacific Islanders. Lineouts seem to be going the way of scrum feeds if he was anything to go by.
Ireland beat Scotland. Wales up tomorrow.

With apologies to my fellow celts, I'm not sure that Scotland even turned up. Best played a stonker for a 37-year old on his last trip overseas.
England made hard work of Tonga, not the 10+ tries expected - but nowhere near the mess France were in against Argentina.
Can't see Georgia posing much of a problem to Wales........

Who expected that?

The New Zealand commentary team we had here certainly didn't. Aside from the handling errors they thought we did well enough. The pitchside expert said it was humid (with the roof closed) and could have been the reason...that and the fact that England made very many more passes so were more likely to drop the ball more often.

NZ definitely scary though. I saw them a few weeks ago get slaughtered by a not very good Australia. What were they doing, lulling us all into a false sense of security? :lol:

I heard there were lots of complaints about it not being on main TV channels and that for the internet deal, a lot of people's internet wasn't good enough.

NZ were impressive. I saw them a few weeks ago get stuffed by a not very good Aussie team. South Africa pummelled them for 20 minutes and 5 minutes later NZ had the match sewn up after deciding it was probably a good idea for them to start playing. :eek:

True . We don't do fast here.
I just bought it so we will see come Saturday. So far had to rely on news snippets and bits of highlights.

My husband used a VPN whilst in Italy. I was super excited to watch the Rugby.

However, that USA vs England game.. Talk about embarrassment.

New Zealand were lucky they caught Canada on a bad day

England all the way.

Shame about the red card but the right decision.

Opponents targeting Farrell it seems. He needs to get his sights adjusted. Can't afford those misses in matches to come. Nice to see Jack Nowell back :thumbup:

Yup - most unlike Farrell.

One bit of good news is Japan beating Samoa. We in Bristol will now get our Samoans back in time for the start of the Premiership season.
