the springboks switched off 'job done'
Ireland will be disappointed not to have done better against a South Africa team who have been a bit shambolic of late. A 10 point defeat probably isn't too bad for England considering how good NZ have been this year (OK, they're often this good any non-World Cup year), they'll hope to at least beat South Africa anyway (I presume they're playing them).
thought we were good for an hour of the match but NZ are good enough to take advantage of the mistakes. They defended solidly for the last 10 minutes with 14 too.
Overall pleased with the performance despite the result
especially considering they had to do without both wilkinson and borthwick (as much as i've always thought borthwick seems like a cunt, the rest of the team seem to depend on him a lot)
martin johnson's comments at the end of it was pretty funny
Ireland were surprisingly lucky even though they didn't win.
australia's pack were a joke but they have the best backline in the world. our backline didn't create much... if we had some impact players like jamie roberts, lee byrne, george north etc i think we could've won that game.
Watched the Wales v. Australia game though. What's the black dude called with the amusing tache? He was pretty bloody good.
