We play France next

Well the Springbok/Wallabies game was just weird.

All stats in favour of the boks - but Wallabies win. Couple of forward passes that if didn't happen could of changed the game entirely.

ABS vs Wallabies and Wales vs France

I'm picking Wales to beat France - they're in form.

Wallabies and ABS will be a good game - can't for certain pick a winner, but gotta back the ABs

my mate sent these stats through regarding a comparison from the last world cup and this one:

AB's V France 2007: France wins 20-18

57 tackles to 269

66% possession to AB's

60% Territory to AB's

2 penalties to 10 in favour of France

Aus V SA 2011: Australia wins 11-9

69 tackles to 251

56% possession to SA

76% territory to SA

2 penalties to 4 in favour of SA

Not surprisingly I have little sympathy for our friends from SA who benefited massively from poor officiating last RWC.

How can it be a farce if Wales win the world cup?? By statistics, after the All Blacks we have been the best side out there. Don't take my word for it, the 2011 World Cup stats say so.

Plus in terms of winning margins, of the top 4 Wales have 2 of the biggest winning margins. One of those included conceding no points, thats right 66-0. We have played some of the best clinical rugby at this world cup and have defended brilliantly.

Your just gonna be a typical southern hemisphere support who expects either SA,NZ or AU to win the world cup every time. At least there are real rugby supporters out there who appreciate seeing good rugby.

Lets be fair, NZ will knock you out. If not, Wales will in the final. Think we beat Ireland convincing enough and you couldnt get close to the paddy's.

Thank **** for that.

That was a stressful game to watch, glad they got it done in the end.

We couldn't kick the ball at all and the French were tough.

Wish I was back home for all of it...ah well

i wish the game had more tries though.. i had a friend over (the replay in the US was on at noon), who had never seen a rugby game.  he had a great time, but more tries would've made it more exciting.

    • LL had an app for GPS 😃 Those leather seats at LLB were really nice though.
    • For those of us who went on the trip, and who played Mammoth, SV, Lawsonia, and LLB, let's do this: everyone write down your favorite first hole, your favorite second hole, etc. Let's see what the composite course looks like. Say a few words about why each hole is your favorite. Some guides and links to help everyone remember the holes: The Links — The Golf Courses of Lawsonia The Club at Lac La Belle | Powered by Envisage https://static1.squarespace.com/static/576025fa22482e70f0278a4d/t/5cafa7d07817f7c9673f0a6d/1555015644415/MammothDunes+Course+Guide.pdf https://static1.squarespace.com/static/576025fa22482e70f0278a4d/t/5cafb38ce4966b8002e86f9a/1555018646008/Sand+Valley+Course+Guide.pdf
    • This^  A range near me shut down early on a Wednesday because they were mowing the next day and they wanted to get all the balls off the range so the mower didn't hit them. 
    • He's clearly saying that if you hit 11 GIR and shoot 90, you should work on your putting as that is the weak part of your game. A person who hits 11 GIR "should" shoot about 73, so if you're hitting 11 GIR, and you shoot 90, it's likely not your full swing (or "long game") that needs work. So again, just stop. You're missing the point. For a short time, the player should probably focus on his putting. Not 50% in the long-term, but in the short term, sure.
    • Marauders, bogey. The military tie-in stuff was weak, which made the whole story line weak. The American, par. I almost gave this a bogey, too. Normally assassin movies rate highly for me, but this one, meh. He was a gunsmith and an assassin? I don't know. Did he die at the end? He knew he was injured. Mortally so? Whatever. This isn't Butch Cassidy.
