    That's why we need a fit Youngs. Only scrum half in the country with a hint of something about him.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    So many missed penalties could have taken this out of England's reach ages ago. Can't see them handing this back to Argentina now.

    England will win now - not sure if the Pumas can open it up.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Let off for England. No way should they get away with those first 70 minutes.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Wilkinson to kick this one out of reach for Argentina now. Surely.

    Something very ballsy about stepping up again when you're kicking 28.5%.

    I don't think I've ever heard of so many missed kicks in an international match.

    Phew.

    As Johnson himself said before the game: "First: win".

    About the best that could be said tho.

    I don't think either team really played open rugby but I thought the Pumas were more determined to play it up front.

    Funny thing is when they did run it with 2 minutes to go they looked elusive.

    And I dread to think of the pummelling we'd have been given by any other 4N side if we played like that.

    Argentina #14, and the one with half a dozen names (Lobbe?) were superb I thought. Armitage was good for your English.
