some fab games today

great win for the Aussies

Fabulous try by Konia in the first half for us against France, and Miller was brilliant. not a win, but Fiji and the US should watch their backs.

and exciting game between the Boks and England

Irish team press conference was today, so coach Eddie O'Sullivan, Keith Wood, Brian O'Driscoll, Denis Hickie. Tomorrow its Namibia's turn...hopefully I get to chat to Rudi Van Vuuren, who's played for Namibia at both the cricket and rugby world cups this year.

there needs to be a freakin' plate and bowl competition

otherwise they might as well just let the tri-nations and england play each other for six weeks

The tri nations and the six nations, samoa and argentina. the first two world cups were 16 teams a tournament which i thought was a good number. didn't make as much money of course so they changed it.

i do feel bad for teams like argentina and italy

they get drawn in with the all blacks and the wallabies with no chance in hell of qualifying

a plate/bowl competition for the 3rd/4th place teams like in the 7s would be great

it's a bit of a waste having namibia, tonga, georgia, japan, and the usa to come and 'put on a good show' but ultimately still suffer an arse kicking

poor performance by the Boks today

although credit to the All Blacks

if Aus. play like they did in the first half today in the semi-final they're out for sure

i love the fact that the battle between the top teams in the world have really close finishes

there is absolutely nothing between the top 6 teams in the world

Australia
New Zealand
England
France
South Africa
Ireland

any of these 6 on their day can beat one another, Australia is top because of their incredible ability to come through in a really close game

what the sport does need to do is to address the loose ends ie the lesser teams of the tournament so it doesnt have the feel of a mere extended 6 nations tournament with teams thrown in there for the hell of it!
