WOW, what a game between Australia and Ireland. :D Perhaps people watching on replay so won't say anything, except that this match-up IMO is the best of the tournament so far. :dance: :dance: :dance: Pete :cheers:

Have to agree - a cracking game. Having been away on site for a while, just catching up on recorded games...... The LHG has given me a pass for a day or so......... she's shopping!

Underdog Chiefs went into the locker room at the half ahead 42-0 :shock: :shock: :shock: Second half was all Highlanders scoring 22 points. Ended 45-22. No bonus point for the Chiefs. Wind was a factor but not a deciding factor. High heart rate game! :D Pete :cheers:

With the exception of the Crusaders, the New Zealand teams are not dominating this year as they've done in the past. I think there may be a reasonable chance to see the All Blacks beaten by someone during upcoming tournaments. Pete :cheers:

Not really Pete, it was expected - at least in Wales. The guy has been knackered physically and thought a year off would work - was always 50/50 at best. I believe he has some decent job/sponsorship offers, so life will be good (perhaps not as good as the Wendyballers though).

Best of luck to him in my book.

Cracking game. Crusaders certainly looking the top club team in the world right now - 2 Super Rugby titles in the past 3 years, 9 now in total. Have to feel for the Lions though - beaten finalists for the past 3 years.

Incredible defense from the Crusaders though and a top class game from the Fly-half Richie Mo'unga, who will surely be challenging Beauden Barrett for his place in the "Blackness" this coming Rugby Championship.
