Right, but he was brought to a stop in the tackle and then I thought he lunged forward again with his whole body. I didn't think that was allowed, and the commentators seemed to agree.

Good to see not everyone buying in to the conspiracy theories. (That said there should be some point in winning the pool imo. Maybe add an extra match between 2nd and 3rd? Though I suppose the schedule is gruelling enough as it is, the clubs would surely protest at another week taken out)

Carter's goal kicking has been a bit off target so far in the tournament. Hope he pulls through.
Nonu must be close to being the best 12 in the world.
1) Ross is Boss.
2) See point 1.

France falling apart here
The French have collectively decided not to tackle today, it seems. Who'd have guess they'd be so blatant in trying to lose?
Parra having a Barry Crocker.
That seems a sentence that's on-loan from the NRL thread, eh?
Just on the ref: Alain Rolland is half-French (his father) and a Francophone so he'd be an unlikely candidate to favour NZ.

France have been disappointing this half. In the first few minutes I was hoping we had a good game on our hands.
France are a very passionate team - so in a pool game they were never going to commit to the tackle.
Kaino having a good game.
