So the team that took on Australia is starting vs SA.

 

Can't wait.

 

Though I'm not sure of SBW being an impact player off the bench. In recent times they used to be fast explosive players ...

I'll take him as an impact player off the bench every day of the week and twice on Sundays!

I'm getting pretty excited about tomorrow. I am not at all confident which is pretty unusual for a pool game. It should be a great contest and while the loser will play Ireland in the quarters they do get to avoid England in a semi final.

France Argentina should also be a really tense game which will probably eliminate one team from the quarters. It's going to be a bid day on the couch tomorrow!

Just watched the first half of Australia vs Fiji. Spark Sport RWC subscription worth it already!

 

I may be a bit biased, but OKeefe seems to have different standards as to what constitutes a high tackle depending on whether you are Fijian or Australian (Fiji being adjudged more harshly) and the Aussie 14 clearly shoulder charged a Fijian to prevent a try.

 

Even if Fiji end up losing this game, Wales have got to be worried with that 40 minutes of rugby South Pacific style.

Nah fiji don't have an 80 minute team in them. Never have, and not this time I'm afraid.

Agree but they cintunie to evolve these days, into a genuine rugby team not just a team of fast strong players of passion.

 

Im liking the commentary actually.

I see one player, Carreras I think was brought into this RWC side 2 days after his Argentina debut. When the commentary team said that tonight, he has had 20 minutes of international rugby experience, very cool story.

Did you guys get a transmission stoppage in the Fuiji-Aus game around 60 min? And another worse one a bit later? 

 

For info, I have a good wifi connection and can stream at over 60 Mbs. 

 

Also saw another glitch at 18 min in the French-Arg game.

 

Good games, though. The Argies came back much better in the sec half.

No re AUS and I had an 8 second low res period in ARG v FRA. One or two others had a freeze instead. Games are good

So many SA players not releasing the ball when tackled, they just getting up and going again even though they are well tackled.

Glad we got the win. Few Clangers both directions by the ref, the AB's got away with a bit, the SA's got away with a bit. I am not sure how the first penalty in front of the sticks wasn't a yellow card and or penalty try. The AB's would have certainly scored if not for the infringement. 

 

I felt for the SA Prop who went off, looks like his RWC is over. That's devastating for him and SA. I really felt for him. 

 

I thought Scott Barrett had an absolute blinder. Bridge, Mo'unga, Tuipolotu and Crotty proved why he was picked. We lost a lot when he went off. Hope Sam Cane is ok. 

 

For SA Cheslin Colby and Faf de Clerk were amazing. FDC had quite a few mistakes and was still excellent. 

 

 

 

The commentary wasn't as bad as prior matches had been though the SS pre-game panel was pretty naff.

That was a good result. Garces was awful. Not biased but just horrendous. The Springbok try was poor defence but not calling South Africa offside when they got the turnover was farcical. He was just terrible.

Aaron Smith is getting back into some really strong form. Mounga had an almost free ride as Smith did almost all the tactical kicking and dominated the decision making. De Clerk has had the better of him recently and he was able to control the game.

Lienart-Brown was really good as well. He set Scott Barrett's try up beautifully. The break was really from nothing and he ghosted his way through.

Our big concerns will be set piece - our scrum was poor and we lost a couple of lineouts as well.

Handle9: Garces was awful.

both teams were great.

 

Refs was too afraid to impact the game with yellow card
