    Pissed off I can't watch this, might try and hook up a radio stream.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I'm not usually a big fan of Australia vs South Africa matches but that one was worth watching IMO. Credit to Australia for finally breaking their losing streak, and they certainly deserved the victory today. Still not sure how South Africa could make so many errors. I don't think it'll be so easy for the Wallabies next week at Ellis Park though.

    Dreadful. Absolutely dreaful performance by South Africa.

    Truth be told I don't think Australia and New Zealand have played all that well in the last two weeks. Somehow the World Champions have forgotten how to play rugby. Their backline is a joke. Butch James sucks. Their loose forward combination isn't working. Worst of all were their handling errors. They're getting the basic stuff wrong.

    Damn it I'm angry!

    The South Africans were no more worthy World Champs last year than they were in 95.

    Truth is they got incredibly "lucky" (if that's what you can call what they did to the ABs in SA) on both occasions and they are being revealed for what they are - average

    This year, they've selected everyone from everywhere and been hammered by 2 sides in the process of rebuilding

    The coach is a hack, some of the "stars" are hacks, and it's about time IMO

    Pretty average test match - the skill level was atrocious. Wallabies the less crap of the two.

    Would agree there. They only needed to beat an awful England team who scarcely touched the giddy heights of inadequacy on a good day. Aside from us it was flat-track bullying all the way: Fiji in the quarters & Argentina in the semis.

    De Villiers is considerably worse than a hack tho; the bloke's a ****ing joke. If he's the best non-white coach in SA the others must be a sorry bunch indeed.

    Played at second five eight when he came on with about 15 minutes to go, didn't really produce anything special.

    Mostly disagree, Argentina were pretty pumped up for the Webb Ellis Trophy. Team of the tournament I reckon.

    I can't decide which is worse -- the Boks or the ELVs. Perhaps it's the Boks playing under the ELVs. God Rugby World Cup 2007 was a joke. They should re-play it.

    It was nice to see a non-foundation country reach the semis &, obviously, France losing to them at home (twice) was an utter rib-tickler, but they didn't exactly further the cause of the art of rugby in so doing. The played an utterly stiffling 10-man game that made England look like a Fijian sevens team.

    BTW, Campo, that was one more tackle than you made in your career

    Good to see Elsom's ban lifted. That was a crock that he was even cited.
