    Still you go all the way to the States to put on a show like that?

    What are these people thinking when they do this?

    Like that is going to grow the game?

    Americans will laugh at such a display.

    Two internationals down and two to play.

    NZ v France was a rout in the 2nd half. One player retires and another just steps in as though they belong there. Still on top of everyone else, they are scary good.

    Aus v Ireland. Deserved win for Aus to end Ireland run of 12 matches unbeaten. Both defences busy but Ireland guilty of mistakes in try scoring positions. Aus the opposite, they took their chances.
    Wasn't impressed with one or two changes Schmidt made and it showed Carbery is not an international class 10 yet. Losing Earls to a HIA early didn't help them.
    I still fancy Ireland are good enough to come back and win the series.

    Can England beat SA?
    I don't think so, especially with Brown picked on the wing. Will be interesting to see how SA shape up with a full side, unlike the 2nd string Wales beat last week.

    I think England have a chance. SA have key players missing like Malcolm Marx and Eben Etzebeth... probably their two best players... and apart from the Beast at prop have a very green looking tight five.... though the emotion of a first black captain may be a factor..
    Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.

    That was some game. SA should never come back from 24 - 3 down . De Klerk my MOM, he was everywhere.
    Poor discipline again from England with the penalty count and I don't think the bench was used very well.
    Congrats to SA. A highly entertaining game for the spectator.

    England failed again after taking a 12pt lead. Some of their play is very good, but again and again too many mistakes made and too many cheap penalties given away.
    SA fully deserved the win again today and I'm beginning to lose faith that England can pull this around before Japan 2019.
