Cracking game between France and Argentina. Now for New Zealand-South Africa.

Brilliant game between Wales and Australia. I do wonder how much that performance has taken out of Wales.

Yeah that's definitely a worry for them. Good for England potentially though if both took a lot out of each other.

Immense performance, superhuman defending, with the All Blacks only scoring from our one mistake. Stunning.

Just looking at him scares the life out of me. Sure New Zealand had jaws playing for them too.

Had a bet on there being 38 points or more, darn.

Going to be some rivalry in my house next weekend, the wife is South African.

I play poker with a group of South Africans. Just booked the venue for it next weekend. They’re bringing 25 South Africans along should be a great day and nice atmosphere for it.

Mistake after mistake after mistake. England have been absolutely awful in that first half.

Yep terrible at the scrum since Sinckler went off. Got to get better or SA will run away with this in penalties.

Can’t see us turning this around. England have crumbled under the pressure

South Africa fully deserve the win. The better team on the day.

For sure! England didn’t really have any answers in the scrum and really missed Sinckler when he went off. Two superb tries for SA.

The wife is happy.:mad:

Two crunch moments in the game South Africa holding us at the line for 25 phases I think zapped our confidence and grew there’s.

Then at 12-6 Farrell has a long kick that goes just wide South Africa score moments later.

Their defending in the 25 phase play was immense. Outstanding.
