    Good first 20mins for England, one superb try & should have had a second.

    NZ have come back into it & lead 14 - 16 & England under pressure now, though have a man advantage after a NZ retaliation
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    We've been poor since the break. Same story as the games in the summer, not making pressure count and inevitably paying for it later.

    Brilliant brilliant Australian ball-retention leads to a drop goal after 21 phases. Wales back behind by two. Incredible match

    Wales should have a penalty for two men on the wrong side and the ref gives it to Australia for Wales not releasing. Fine margins in top flight test rugby....

    This is our first Int of the season I think, but too many mistakes made in this half & you really can't do that v The All Blacks

    Gallant defeat. Again.

    Fucking hell. Wales need to turn these performances against the Southern Hemisphere into WINS.

    3 point defeat in the end after a penalty try for England a minute before the end, but in reality more comfortable for NZ than the score indicates.

    Too many mistakes in the first 30mins of the second half & that NZ won the sin bin period when they were down to 14 tells its own story

    Not good enough this afternoon from England. A first half littered with silly errors (the worst being the interception for the first SA try) and then we go and concede after 45 seconds of the second half. You're not going to win many games against this calibre of opposition from 14 points back with half the game gone. We improved a fair bit but same as last week, late scores putting an unrealistic gloss on it, we weren't that close.

    Disappointing.

    Very disappointing. I think its time to admit robshaw and Farrell are not good enough. Start Ford and Haskell and it's a much better team.

    Wales were poor to say the least. Fiji were playing a man down for the majority of the game but Wales never looked like capitalising on the situation. In truth Fiji had their fair share of opportunities and their late try gave them a chance to snatch it at the death but fortunately for Wales it wasn't to be.

    England don't look like contenders at the minute. For me the most telling thing was the sheer number of times SA recycled the ball and got their phases into double figures. If we don't stop the opposition playing they will eventually score. Sure, we have a couple of key players out but I'm disappointed by how naive our 'experienced' players look. Saying that, we should have enough in the tank to beat Australia who aren't in the same class as NZ and SA.

    Wales looked very poor today. England managed to make a game look closer than it was. Scotland gave the All Blacks one hell of a scare. France v Australia is an absolute cracker.

    When it comes to the high pressure games one hemisphere looks between five and ten points better than the other.

    When the All Blacks did the Haka yesterday the commentator mentioned they were doing a different version of it. How many versions are there? I thought there was just one Haka.

    I think there are several depending on what the situation is, mostly the differences are specific words for their opponents, I think.

    Another solid run out for Ireland today, albeit against a poor Georgia side, but Schmidt rested 50% of our starting line up and the stand in guys really shone.

    Wales v New Zealand is pretty decent so far. All very even.

    I caught the last 15 mins of the Ireland match. Terrific to beat S. Africa and Australia one after the other

    This is a sensational game of rugby. Wales lead 13-10 with 25 to go.

    15-13 New Zealand heading into the last fifteen. This is a brilliant game. Wales have to finally convert one of these excellent performances against the giants into a win. Gallant defeat is no longer good enough.
