    Beale looks like a sex case with that tache. Magnificent grab off his own garryowen tho.

    The early ambition from the Micks was nice, but the execution was awful. Passing and handling was dire.

    Hadn't realised Moore was out too; my dream team is buggered this round.

    You worry Sexton's misses will hurt Ireland in the second half.

    Wobblies went in at 6-6 v Johnny Eyetie last week too.

    Thought Oz had a scrum now?

    Pitiful effort from their tight five.

    I liked how they got away with one of the most skewed put-ins I've ever seen and they still ended up giving away a penalty. We really need to invent a new sport so Australia have something they can be good at again.

    Great result for us, tbf. Moves Australia into the same half of the draw as NZ & SA.

    Probable QF v France and SF v Wales or Ireland.

    Means that there can only be one of Australia, NZ and SA in the final then?

    Awesome performance from the Irish forward pack. Scrum always had the potential to undo Australia and whilst they got away with it last week against Italy, that was their downfall this evening. Certainly Australia looked a bit directionless without Moore and Pocock, their two best and in form forwards IMO. This also completely opens the draw up for England and Ireland now - those two teams, all other things going to plan, could meet in a semi-final, with Australia vs South Africa in a quarter! Winner of that to face New Zealand - not sure if thats a good outcome for us or not yet.

    Thought Ireland won it at the breakdown. Australia barely competed there all night. Absence of Pocock was significant.

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

    Thats the way I read the draw, yup. Basically guarantees a NH team in the final (unless Samoa go on a rampage against NH sides).

    Yup they definitely had the upper hand at the breakdown. I hardly noticed McCalman at openside, whereas Pocock's constantly slowing down ball and winning turnovers for his side. Samo also was really quiet - a shadow of the storming performance he had against us in Brisbane.

    Well, unless NZ or SA lose one of their group games.

    NZ v France not an absolute given. Les Bleus won in Dunedin in 2009.

    Yea mentioned the probable draw in he knockout thread... of course if this were a football World Cup England would manage to somehow cock things up and end up in the half with South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

    I fear France in a knock out game but not in the group stage. When their back is against the wall they are incredible.
