    What is everyone's thoughts on increasing the value of a try to 6?

    Stupid imo.

    EDIT - just play the game as it is. If you give away a stupid amount of penalties you deserve to be kicked off teh park.

    I'd say it's far too easy for sides to give away tactical penalties in defence. I wouldn't say the points structure needs changing but if I was a ref I'd be waving yellows all over the place and letting the attacking side's advantage run for hours.

    Two tries to Tuilagi in the first half of Samoa's match against Namibia. Looking good to be the first side to post 50 points in the tournament.

    Just short of 50 as it turned out, but thats a great start for Samoa. A few early injuries the only concern for their upcoming matches. Hattrick for Tuilagi the standout. Thought Namibia played a bit better in the second half to grab a couple of consolation tries.

    In league it is 6 for a converted try and two for a penalty and I don't see teams infringing too often. But yes when it was 4 points for a try in rugby - it used to be stink. Your tactics were to get into opposition territory and hope like hell you won a penalty. Get Foxy to kick it over and then repeat.

    I have a number of pet peeves about rugby - but the point system isn't one of them.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Quite a few less rules in league tbh - hard to infringe really.

    1. Stay back 10 metres
    2. Don't lay on a bloke for too long.

    Thats it isn't it?

    SA aren't playing the percentages this game - passed up an easy chance to go 6-0 up - to chase a try instead.

    They need to show Fiji RESPECT.

    SA looking very impressive today. Got the Welsh wobble out of their system it seems.

    1) they are playing 15 man rugby - /shockhorror

    2) SA players are fabulous tacklers

    I spoke to a SA person about the tackle and he said to make the school 1st 15 tackling was the first priority.

    Would value a SA perspective on rugby culture and tackling,

    Top performance from the Boks. Frans Steyn looks so much better at centre and how good was Dinosaur? Just bullied the Fijians.

    Surprisingly brilliant performance from the Boks. Who needs Matfield when Roussouw plays like that?! Lack of Habana hardly hindered them either. I still think they're missing a trick not starting with Bismark and Houggard but even so, Fiji were absolutely no match for them this evening.

    What a game! South Africa played 'mans' rugby. I dont think Fiji were poor. Coming into the game the reports out of their camp were that they were worried about the size and strength of South Africa. They were right to be concerned. Powerful rugby and then the class to be able to make line breaks and gain yards.

    The final try was amazing. 3 Fijians olé'ed Rossouw. To be fair, I don't blame them. He was immense today.

    Really physical encounter between Wales and Samoa, Perenise's try in extra time in the first half giving Samoa a first half lead - hopefully that'll fire Samoa up to see the game out in the second 40.
