Nothing else on, so how being 54 points to nil at half-time helps Namibian rugby?.


Sesperate note, England played at 8 pm and it was difficult conditions, France playing at 8 pm make it look easy.

Watched the football tonight boys, Liverpool followed by Brighton. Back to rugby this weekend. Lets be fair Jenkins a was no 10. Knew him and in the same class in school as his father Roger. Jenkins the boot we knew him as, and rightly so.

my decision not to watch vindicated - 96-0! For pity's sake, I'd rather watch paint dry
Thank you for the days, the days you gave me.

It looks as though Antoine Dupont's World cup may be over - a fracture to the cheek area apparently looks to a 6-8 week recovery period

Makes one wonder why they risked him, the guy didn't set out to hurt him but 9 and 10 are always attacked.

Argentina v Samoa coming on shortly. Samoa 2nd in the Group D with Argentina joint bottom after their defeat by England. So today we have to see a good performance from Argentina or it could be a very early exit. Interesting.

19-10 to Argentina - much better entertainment than one-sided slaughters.

Enjoyed it, Aussies did turn out worthy winners in the end but fair play to Samoa gave their all. I did notice that while it was close Australia quietly lengthened their lead with some quality kicking. while the Samoan kicking was hot and cold. Never mind, another day today. Cheers.

Wilkinson must be the most depressing pundit, there is no excitement, it one dimensional monotone drivel.

18--18 Georgia better side in the first half with Portugal coming out looking like a different side in the second half with either team close to winning it with last minute kicks. Now. I will start watching the England v Chile game, but how long I will last ?. Until England reach ? points.

Payper is a rubbish ref, on the build up to the third try, Dan laid right down on a English player preventing a challenge, right in front of Payper and he totally ignored it.

Alright  71 -0 and we all knew it was always going to be a huge England win. Well done England. But let us give credit where credit is due, and for the first twenty minutes Chili played really well and were on a par with England. Well done Chili for that. Now for the big one of the day to come. S Africa, Ireland.

Tough one to call tonight, but I'll go for SA by a close score 12-10.
