After going 19-16 i thought we'd messed it up. What a flurry in those last 20 minutes. Aussies well and truly smashed in their own back yard. Will go down in history. Wales actually have a chance at winning a world cup soon, they've got some real talent there and will be a force in the next tournament.

As with the Olympics, sport has shown just how Great Britain can unite. Wonderful performance.

Yeah so did I, I mean we knew the Aussies would come out fired up for the second half, I guess they tired themselves out getting back into it, Gatland made all the right calls and left an awful lot of us Irish with eggs on our faces, I like Wales' chances myself but can never rule out the All Blacks and the 'Boks winning it again, oh and do you think Gatland might get a Knighthood out of this Lions win?

He'd get a knighthood if he coached a couple more and won more, 1 win probably isn't quite enough despite the score being so emphatic.. The real test is in 4 years against New Zealand which would be beyond amazing to beat those lot in their back yard. Tonked us last time.

To be honest if we only won one test over there I'd be happy, we could send Halfpenny by himself and he can kick over points from ridiculous angles and distances

Great start to the Rugby championship, Aussies well Beaten, Pumas battered.

Dunno what to make of the new Scrum engagement though.

the new Scrum engagement though.

I know this post was posted ages ago, but its the first I have seen off this thread.

The new engagement is obviously there to improve safety, which I suppose you can't deny it of. BUT this comes at a price. The last thing we want is scrums to become like a rugby league scrum (I am a big follower of RL but the scrums, are a waste of time!).

There is nothing better than 2 props smashing each other and I just hope no more alterations will take place.

The one thing I do like about scrums these days however is the Ref Cams! I don't know if you have seen this but its perfect for the scrum area!

Yeah I noticed the ref cams, first came to my attention in the Amlin challenge cup, can't imagine they are to comfortable for the refs to be running around the pitch looks like a bulky piece of apparatus.

On a different note 6 nations start soon can't wait.

First weekend of the 6 Nations done and dusted, Fantastic win for Ireland today without really getting out of 3rd gear, Wales did what they needed against Italy and France pipped England with a last gasp try in a stunning game in Paris.

I thought ENG bounced back really well after conceded after only 32 seconds, but with letting the game get out of their grasp shows there are still a working progress, fielding debutants proved this. Next weekend will be a cracking game between Ireland and Wales, could even decide the championship.

Yeah, England did very well after going behind. I like Mike Brown, Top fullback, but Twelvetree's was poor for me. Aimless kicking gifting possesion back to France on a few occasions and just didn't make an impact.

Long way to go yet, France and England will still have a big say, Fancy Wales next week though, pains me to say it.

If we start as poorly as we did against Scotland, then it's gonna be a paddling. With the strong pack they have, George North and Leigh Halfpenny ready to kick penalties from anywhere past the 50 we could be in for a long day.

Ireland shocked Wales 24-6, France beat Italy 30-10 and England beat Scotland 20-0.

This weekend is Wales v France at 8 on Friday Night, then Ireland v England and Italy v Scotland.

Going to pick Wales, England and Italy. Think Ireland are playing really well at the minute but I think we'll come undone in Twickenham. Hope i'm wrong.

Random bump, but this sport is just so hopeless in Asia that right now the West Asian Rugby Championship is being hosted in Lebanon and it only includes Lebanon, Jordan and Iran. Right now, Lebanon is beating Jordan something like 46 to 3! :lol:

Every time the brave English lions score a try, I shed a single manly tear. They are truly the example of pure English heart.

lmao Everybody that isn't biased knows that All Blacks aren't going all the way. '07 was special but this will be a return to the norm.
