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.

    • Day 109 (7/24/21) - Decided that I needed to review the 30-day Covid drills, so I started at the beginning with Day-1 - Early backswing. Did the left and right hand drills then added the pivot to A2, chipping a tennis ball in the yard for about 20-minutes using my 7-iron and 7-wood. When chipping the ball with this drill, I focused making a good turn thru the ball and making sure that my low point was in front of the ball. 
    • You can read my impressions so far here: If I had to make a recommendation right now, I'd say don't do it.  However, I've been in contact with the GG people, and they're trying to improve the performance.  I'd love for it to work, and I'm more than willing to do my part, all we can do is wait to see how it turns out.  
    • Day 2 https://youtube.com/shorts/20xO9_H4diI?feature=share      
    • Okay.  I'll give this a try during tomorrow's round.  I don't remember ever connecting it to my phone to start it up before.  I'm confused about why the rounds were able to be stored in the device but how I started the round affected their upload, but I don't expect anyone here to tell me why their software does what it does. The way I had (I think since I first bought it) used it in the past was to power it on when I walked to the first tee, tag my shots, and connect to the computer after the round to upload, edit, and sign.  For the first four years or so I used it, I think this was working fine.  If there's been a change in what works, an alert from them would have been nice. and now for something stranger:  when the device/phone are paired and I check in the app, there is a listing of one round on the device.  That's exciting, maybe my round data still lives somewhere...
    • It was an amazing trip with lifelong memories made. Thank you to all who came out to this and made it happen. As @saevel25mentioned the weather was incredible for the week. It was as good as I hoped for. We played the black and blue combo tees on the final day which was fitting as we were pretty beat up by that point. I have wanted to plan a trip like this for a long time, and I am so glad we were able to make it a reality.
