    After his performances in the Tri Nations I thought he might be shown up in the World Cup but he'd been brilliant at 12 so far. Fortunate in the sense that Jean de Villiers is just returning and can slot back into Steyn's position but its hardly an ideal scenario for SA. Takes away the potential for the Springboks to convert penalties from 60+ metres out too.

Completely uncalled for and shows a real lack of maturity from that Samoan player, who I actually was really impressive with during the match.

    Embarrassing scoreline, put aside their win over Namibia and its been a horrible World Cup for Fiji, especially after making the quarter finals four years ago.

    Wales have been impressive so far. Should have beaten SA and cruised the rest of the group games, the match with Ireland next week could be the hardest one to call of all the quarters.

    Zane Kirchner Steyn's replacement. Doesn't make much sense given Lambie is at 15 and Gio Aplon would fit in there while utility back Ruan Pienaar can also play 15. Would have gone for another forward myself. Heard that they sounded out if Juan Smith could make it but it was too early for Smith. Still hasn't got back to playing Currie Cup rugby.

    I would go with Butch at 12 for the Aus game. JdV to stay on the bench and he can cover for Habana as well.
    Huge loss and as you say, the Boks will need to change their style now.

    Suspended Gloucester centre Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu has once again hit out at the International Rugby Board on Twitter.

    The Samoa international will face a World Cup misconduct hearing on Saturday after accusing Welsh referee Nigel Owens of bias during Samoa's defeat to South Africa in their final pool match. And the 30-year-old has now risked further wrath from the IRB by accusing them of failing to acknowledge the anniversary of the Samoan tsunami disaster that claimed the lives of 143 people.

    "Our dead not good enough" he said in a Twitter message on Thursday."Minute of silence for USA for 9/11, nothing for Samoa for tsunami. Both games played anniversary days. Our dead not good enough."

    The IRB responded by telling AFP, "As agreed with the Samoa Rugby Union, the date was respectfully commemorated with a public address immediately prior to kick-off and also the wearing of black armbands to remember those who tragically lost their lives."

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
