Scotland are well in the game- would be great to see them keep their recent record against Aus!
I thought a punch to the head/ face was a red but these don’t seem to be given lately 😕
Scots look better with Weir at 10 IMO but he isn’t getting a lot of support in the back line- I guess this is mainly due to Aus running them ragged so far.
I think that the Aus 4’s frustration comes from the 37th minute when one of the Scottish players rucked him in the face. If anyone saw it the Scot could be in trouble in future weeks…Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Scrappy game France v Boks, gifted them a 10 point head start. France never reached the level they did against NZ but I think they’ll be a force in the 6N. Still need to sort out their 9 and 10. Para had a bit of a nightmare and oddly Michelak didn’t come on until 75 mins. Wesley Fofana is some player.Posted 4 years ago
Great start and nice to see some BOD magic still as I feared he was a little past it. Glad to be proved wrong so far, true what they say about class!
AA I was expecting a comment on what is the point of the video ref with the knock on!
I got picked o a few pages ago in the Aussie spear tackle but yet again this weekend there has been plenty of “interpretation” of the rules!Posted 4 years ago
I like the way NO is reffing this. Common sense and keeping his whistle in his pocket on the niggling debatable points (a few accidental offsides, knock on/sidewards etc) maks it much better to watch.
Love to see the classic names of BOD, Bowe, Darcy and Kearney playing so well. Ireland on a roll are a joy to watch. Looking good for a close and competitive 6N.Posted 4 years agoduckmanMember
How intense re the Irish? If this continues it could be very confusing for Mrs Darcy. ” gosh honey; is it Xmas already?”
Best half this autumn, did you see them screaming at one another at half time? We will see if the AB’s are the best in the world,they will have to be to come back from that.Posted 4 years agodannyhMember
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the All Blacks losing so many first contacts. Ireland seem to be standing them up in the tackle, whilst they are cutting the New Zealanders down on the spot.
Great to see a ‘Roy of the rovers’ turning of form on its head from Ireland, though.Posted 4 years ago
