Ireland playing in Black. You can borrow our players and coaches if you like, but when you start wearing our clothes ... YOU CROSS THE LINE!!

I'm not the biggest RU fan, but that Ireland game was a poor spectacle. SA didn't play in the first half, and Ireland didn't play in the second, albeit aided by a much improved performance from the Springboks. Once Ireland found that their pick up and drive, pick up and drive tactic was never going to get them within range of the try-line, they didn't seem to have a Plan B. Unless you count 'bring on O'Gara'. Hardly the best choice when you're needing a try, anyway.

I didn't see it, because I don't have dirty Sky, but apparently the French gave Australia a proper shellacking. If they lose to England and Wales, they will drop out of the top 4, which would make for some interesting WC pools...

I reckon the New Zealand players have been blinded by the Scotland kit.........

Don't think its going to make much difference in the overall outcome of this match, with the AB's cruising at 27-10 with about 5 minutes to go to half time, who look as if they can score a try every time they attack.........

From 10-10 to 10-34 in 15 minutes, All Blacks twice gifted field position from errors at the Scotland restart.

ABs better in most aspects apart from restarts, where they've been abysmal.
