Ireland have been poor throughout this competition. Based on today's performances I don't see England being able to get past the Kiwis although it should be more of a competition than today's matches. Wales will cruise past France tomorrow but I'm looking forward to Japan South Africa.

I think my heart rate has almost returned to normality

Poor game from Wales but we were always in it, France never out of sight. Credit their game today, they were frustratingly resilient

+1 he is like having an extra back row forward. Northern Hemisphere final could be on ?

Congrats to England. I don’t feel quite so bad now that they have downed the Kiwis. A very disciplined and dominant performance apart from that booboo in the line out that lead to the All Blacks try. Gotta be favourites to take the title. You’ve got some monsters in the forwards. Just brutal.

Any win against the Kiwis is going to be impressive but that England performance was sublime. Anyone else think that second disallowed try was valid? I can't see that control of the ball was lost in the maul.

Wales should overcome the Springboks tomorrow but, like Ireland, they haven't really found their game this competition. It would be nice to have a northern hemisphere final.

Based on the fact the on field decision was a try for me there wasnt enough clear and obvious evidence to overturn Nigel Owens decision. Yes the ball seemed to go forward in the mall but did Jamie George have his hand on it all the time ? Difficult to say so stay with on field decision.
Looking foward to Wales tomorrow they have a good chance if they play well.

I didn't agree with either non try calls,but can see why they weren't given. What i couldn't understand was why non of the many forward passes were picked up by the linos, or the offsides,or the number of final,definately the last,final warnings the ref gave to NZ re their penalty count.
