SO, getting back to rugby...


Big test for England tomorrow but if they can get their scrum going as it should do then they could really give the Aussies a going over. I expect they'll be taking the scrum option 9/10 as opposed to the line out.

Agreed, the Aussies were very poor last week by all accounts, I expect a backlash but England should edge it. Samao with an +11 handicap (Skybet) look a decent bet considering how bad Wales were last week also.

Wales 19 Samoa 26.

Scoreline flattered Wales.

Given how bad they were against the New Zealand 4th XV to night I dread to think what the All Blacks will do to them next week.

England 14 Australia 20.

England appear in a monstrosity of a strip, but pride in the jersey doesn't appear that important as half of the team appear to come from anywhere in the globe apart from England.

With five minutes to go and a try required to win they call for the creative skills of Owen Farrell. His first act is to pass the ball approximately two yards in front of a colleague's boot straps.

Hopeless rabble crushed last week by France comfortably hold on to win.

Despite spending less money than some clubs who are still not in the Premier League?

Does that mean the 5 winners of the Premier League don't deserve their titles because they bought players?


Premier League is an utter farce, so probably.

England were pretty awful yesterday. Aussies would have had more if they had a clue how to attack close to the line. With the exception of France, the northern hemisphere seems to be falling further and further behind. Argentina are probably stronger than us now.

My philosophy is to try and get level first and then try to win next.
That means, unless there are only seconds left, have a go at all kickable penalties.
That's the smart way to win.
Declining a string of penalties is silly. After all, Australia won by kicking three of them in the second half and for the England coach to say it was a case of hindsight shows that he would make the same mistake again.
Another loser with a loser's mentality.
His record is rapidly showing how effective he is.
More pain to come I suspect.
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

Here's an interesting one. 2 games tonight in the Aviva, with a combined total of.. 0 tries :SHIFTY:
We also had such scores as Glasgow 0-6 Leinster in the Pro12..!
What on earth was in the air tonight??

A good effort today by England but no cigar.
They truly have little idea how to craft tries against top sides, apart from trying to barge over.
They have little idea about when and how to pass a ball to good effect.
And yet there must be a myriad of videos of NZ to watch and learn from.
