A mixed bag this weekend
Wales make a good hash of it against the All Blacks. Getting pretty bored of how many times I've had to write "NH team pushes NZ close but still gets beat by 2 scores" this autumn. For me, No'nu changed the game - Wales had SBW's number, and No'nu's direct running turned the game on its head. Carter had a MARE though
England revert to type and lose to South Africa. How SA have come away from this tour with 3 wins is mystifying, they have been dreadful.
Scotland narrowly beat Samoa, who've had a great autumn, at a vibrant Pittoride with a last minute kick. Big man of moving those types of game to smaller grounds, makes for a much better atmosphere.
Ireland tonk Argentina is an exceptionally poor game. Bryce Lawrence enhances his reputation as the worst referee in world rugby by constantly penalising Argentina for having the audacity to be better than Ireland in the scrum. Loved the score, but disappointed that Argentina couldn't be bothered in what has become THE grudge match of recent times. Ferris and Heaslip again both outstanding, but Ireland's tight five are dire at the mo.
Australia absolute dick France.
What a weird set of results. The Six Nations is going to be interesting
