England Ireland was a really good game. England got up comprehensively at the end but it was in the balance going into the last 10. England were brilliant in defense and their kicking game gave Ireland problems.
Conor Murray had a horrible kicking day and Ireland were pretty bad in the air.
This is a very wide open world cup. It'll be a great finish to the year - I couldn't really care less about super rugby but the international year will be amazing.
It has been noted in a few commentaries subsequently that Off-Side is really more of a suggestion now, than a rule. Both teams were offside the majority of the time in defense and it's making Rugby a defensive game rather than offensive.
I agree that it's anyone's cup to take, though I think if the AB's can fix their attacking issues, and can get back to their mental fortitude, then we are probably on track to see a tri-peat.
