    What the hell is happening in this match? NZ are destroying us and we've just had Billy Vunipola sin binned for... what?

    For playing for England, rather than Australia where he was born?

    He moved to England as a child?

    I would have started with Ben Morgan anyway, personally...

    Jerome Kaino wasn't born in NZ? Fekitoa neither...

    You ought to be able to find the game in its entirety on youtube, most games usually show up there about a day or two after. Or you could just stream it like I do.

    Truly impressive game last night, Savea, Smith, Cruden, Crotty, Fekitoa, all did a bang up job and made my late night/early morning well worth my while.

    And it appears that the game is up for your viewing pleasure, @Jedi_Matt, so you can forget about that piddly little game everyone else is talking about and watch a real sport for an hour or two.

    A draw is better than a loss. Crappy part was having to get up at 4:45 in the morning just to watch it.

    In fairness, two yellow cards against the All Blacks yet the Wallabies failed to score a try both times, I'll let that speak for itself.

    And one hell of a game to boot. Beautiful to see all of those tries and not seeing the Wallabies asleep at the wheel here. Both the All Blacks and Wallabies stepped their respective games up with this round and it was truly a pleasure to watch.

    Absolutely. Just a joy all round. Wallabies have some skills, just not enough to prevent NZs biggest ever score against them.

    Also of note: Los Pumas gave the Springboks a run for the money today. Boks won 33-31 and Pumas had a considerable lead on them at one point.

    Pumas v All Blacks in 40 mins. Are the Aussies playing the Saffers?

    Yes, Wallabies are playing the Bokke in *checks watch* about 1 hour from now.

    Los Pumas stepped up their game here, if it wasn't for the rain and that inexplicable call by the ref, I'm sure that they would have done better.

    And Julian Savea, damn. Warren Buffett makes money, Kim Jon Un kills people, Julian Savea scores tries.

    Could have been a different game if the ref allowed that Pumas try to be scored. :(

    Totally. I'm sure the rain didn't help matters any either. Still, I am waiting for the day that they beat one of the big three, they have most certainly earned it.

    I just wish I had the time to stay awake to watch the Wallabies beat the Boks. All I have at this point is the commentary and details from the All Blacks iPhone app. If the Wallabies beat them and the Pumas came awfully close then they had damn well better up their game or this upcoming game will be a slaughter.

    On a side note: why the hell do the South Africans look like they're having one giant collective orgasm when their anthem is played/sung? I get patriotism and all that, but you have to wonder given their facial expressions and body twichings, they look a little *too* passionate.

    NZ v South Africa. Tight and exciting first half...

    And a total nailbiter second half. Anybody's game right up to the end. NZ did an excellent job at defense towards the end of the game.
