ugh, Australia were losing when I left work but by the time I got home they'd scored another 4 tries and won

Would've loved to have seen a nice early upset like that. Oh well, hopefully there's one soon. Really looking forward to the other 2 games today too!

I was cheering for Fiji xD also Argentina vs France was very close. Currently watching the All Blacks vs South Africa :D

Yeah, I think Argentina made a mistake going for that long range kick right at the end, they should've tried to get up the pitch and then went for an easier kick.

And I'm watching the game too, bet you're pretty pleased by it so far



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Was a bit worried at the start, but the All Blacks are world class :P

That kick was well within his range and when you have the points on offer you gotta take it.

ABs looked poor the first 15-20mins, but a couple moments of brilliance really sparked them back into the game and they kept control from there.



Just wondering why they have to start all bunched up holding each other then ref tosses in ball.

Yeah but... he didn't take it, did he?

Do you mean the scrum? That's the half back. The ref would never touch the ball.

Scrum is just a means to reset play, generally when there's been a handling error. It can be an opportunity for the defending team to affect a turnover if they can overpower the other forward pack, but it can also be a great platform for the attacking team if they have the right field position.
Same principle for lineouts, which happen when the ball goes out the sideline.

When I say "take the points on offer", it just means the opporunity to kick for the posts.
It's far from a sure thing that you'll get another penalty by holding onto the ball. More likely that you'll lose the ball in a collision or a ruck turnover, especially that late in the game when all your players are exhausted.



Ireland dominanting Scotland :O



Bit disappointed that I can't watch any of the matches today. Was at work for the first 2, and now it seems the England vs Tonga game isn't on TV (free TV, at least)
