Wales watch out for the Wallabies - you are about to meet your Waterloo!
Oh ye Brave Men of Harlech, it will be way too painful to watch, even your stoutest hearts will tremble before the Might of the Men from Downunder. :D*chr:D

U'mmm Not quite Mark. I think it was a far tighter game than you predicted and I wager you were chewing on your fingernails more than once;)

You deserved the win for your stout defence when you were down to 13 men for eight minutes, our failure to score during that period was our downfall.

A great game of rugby though and we were far more of a test for you than England were:D

Kind regards, Simon

Very true, Simon - You were certainly more of a test for us than England. Of course the game was played throughout our night between 2:30AM and 4:00AM. To avoid a coronary I recorded it but awoke around 3:00AM to see how the game was going. The score was 6/6 and after a few minutes of serious nail chewing I could watch no more and went back to bed. I had promised Sandra to let her crack two eggs over my head if we lost and post a picture of the yolks where my eyes usually are. At 6:30AM I got up and fast forwarded the recording (anxiously watching the scoreboard flash by) until the end 10 minutes - WOW, what a game, and I was able to eat those eggs for breakfast! Now we're up against Scotland next week but this time I'm making no predictions - "just one day at a time" as the Wallabies say. :D

Kind regards,

That's us moving on but lost three good men doing it. Will watch their recovery with interest.

Yes well done Ireland, a fantastic performance. Shame about the loss of the players and Argentina can be a banana-skin for they are no push-over however based on tonights performance I would expect to see Ireland in the Semi Finals *chr

Sorry Ross, it's on Monday AEDT. *yes

But with Israel Folau and David Pocock out through injuries I'm not making any predictions. It's likely to be a close game.

I think it will be close too, not that I'll watch it though, just news highlights. :rolleyes:

You can see I don't follow sports but then my daughter was travelling to Chester (& Wales) from Sheffield the night of the Welsh defeat by the Aussies. :rolleyes:

She's home now so I don't need to worry about any fan reprisals. ;)

No doubt I'll know the outcome from the matches when I wake in the morning. *yes

*chrerm, it was the Springboks who did for the Welsh (and the English ref Wayne Barnes according to Barry John...)

Ohhhh "Scotland the Brave" .. you were so robbed by a 'Bok who SHOULD have gone upstairs :mad::mad:

just cannot believe given the importance of the decision the ref didn't go to the TMO, he certainly wasted no time checking with the TMO regarding his yellow carding of a Scot earlier.

TBH even though I'm a proud Welshman I just cannot help but be more upset by that incredulous decision than I am of our loss to South Africa.

Hold your heads very high you brave Scots, you won that game, but were robbed by a very poor refereeing decision.

Kind regards, Simon

The outcome for the Australia would have to be 'bitter sweet' having won the match in those circumstances but it still sounds like a close match though.

Be that as it may, it must be said that the Wallabies have turned the game upside down
with Australia on top ... (at least for the week! *yes)

'World Rugby' has confirmed that Craig Jubert "got it wrong" by awarding Australia a penalty as the ball came off an Australian player before being collected by the Scottish player. They go on to say a scrum to Australia is what should have been awarded:rolleyes:

Just makes it all the more painful for the brave Scots and hopefully Australia realise just how fortunate they are to be in the semi's.

Don't get me wrong Australia have a tremendous outfit and rightly deserve to be currently 1st or 2nd in the world rankings and I am sure they themselves did not want to win in such a manner but will rightly take it nevertheless. I just feel so sorry for the Scots ( as I would Australia had it been the other way round ) , to 'effectively' lose the game in that way must be both frustrating and heart breaking.

And now to the final against the formidable All Blacks - it will be a battle of wills and skills.

Helped by a forward pass killing the game!!
The Pumas entertained us and kept alive our dream, but yet again spoilt by the lead official. Clearly a forward pass, but why didn't the upstairs TMO say something?
Outcome probably the same, however, but it killed the chance needing two converted tries.

My money's on the All Blacks.

It was a fantastic final and a brilliant advert for RU. The cameras cought Steve Hansen smiling at one stage - he'd make one heck of a poker player!
