England pushed all the way in thrilling Wallabies Test but take series 3-0

Looking at the Autumn internationals and the teams England have to face, I'd say that they might be able to make it an undefeated year, although with all respects (and obviously big credit to their performances so far) I think that they've got a fairly gentle Autumn bar the match against Australia at the end...

If I've read correctly, they're facing Fiji and Argentina, two big teams in their own right, but England should be the favourites to beat them both. Australia will be the ones to beat (I believe), they will be hurting from this series and I'd imagine they'll get a heck of a lot of criticism at home for this performance, especially given the *ahem* prelude to the series about how poor England have been... which lets face it, if currently true, then it sort of suggests the Wallabies are utterly abysmal... So they will be fired up I'd imagine.

Well done to England, commiserations to Australia. It's very interesting to see what Eddie Jones has done to the team, especially considering the players are more or less the same ones that Lancaster had, Jones has just taken them that bit further.

Very much wonder how England will fair against the likes of NZ..

New Zealand romp to victory against hapless Wales to take series clean sweep

I still think Gatland should be the head of the Lion's team, how many times has he lost to NZ now?? Law of averages, he's got to be due a win eventually.....

Spain shock Samoa to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics 7s

Hell of an effort by Spain, I don't know how long they'll last in "the big league" but what an incredible feat to break through. I'd imagine it'll do wonders for the sport.....providing the zika virus doesn't come and ruin it all for us all...

Bok-lash earns South Africa an incredible comeback victory

I think given Paddy Jacksons get up and go attitude, Ireland are onto a really handy fly half... I felt Sexton was going to be a really awesome player for Ireland, however in recent years he seems to have just developed a Ronan O'Gara miserable agro attitude chip on his shoulder, coupled with a bit of drama lessons... which all in all pisses me off...

Should Waisake Naholo have been yellow carded for taking out Liam Williams?

Also totally agree on losers draw card, Ireland couldn't beat SA with 15 men, so they got one of their guys sent off to make it easier..... -_-

Hey kiwiguy, little lesson for you, stick around and you'll realise we often comment on what we see with regards to the law! I personally don't feel Naholo jump clash requires anything at all, but in the eyes of the law (you heard the tmo) Naholo was reckless...so reality is, it's probably yellow card worthy....

Tell that both eyes on the ball thing to Jared Payne when he was red carded for a similar incident on Alex Goode...
