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.

The tackling stats are unreal

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.

    • Welcome to The Sand Trap!   You may be a while waiting for a response to this one, the last post here is almost 11 years old.  But take a look around, and chime in to whichever threads interest you.
    • what app are you all using to track your golf stats. GIR & scrambling etc.? 
    • I suppose it depends on the length of the golf course.  I would say somewhere between a 7 and PW.  Personally I would like a PW because that is one of the favourite clubs in my bag and is useful enough to get you out of must situations onto the fairway.  If you are intending to use it to reach a green, then a longer club may well be required.  Definitely don't go something as long as a 5 iron, unless the course is such that you have no rough to speak off, in which case a 5 iron would be useful as punch out type of club to keep it low
    • Day 114 (7/29/21) -  Practice green - Worked on chipping with my 58* and 6H to different holes and from different lies, then putting out. Then played 5-holes of chip and putt, scoring a 13.  When putting, I focused on the hole, rather than the ball.  Range - Hit a small bucket. With wedges, hybrids and fairway woods I focused making sure the low point of my swing was in front of the ball. For driver, I focused on swinging smoothly and making sure the low point was behind the ball. The 2-3 best drives I hit today, bar far, were using the Distanza shaft in my G400.  
    • A group of us are playing a week in Arizona next month, and we are permitting ourselves to carry and use a 15th "desert" club for hitting out of rocks, dirt and the many less-than-club-friendly places our golf balls will find themselves. (I know that scratched clubs don't really affect performance).  What's the best desert club?  5 iron? 8 iron? Mark <>
