Australia stun New Zealand to win the 2015 Rugby Championship in Sydney

I believe you both remember the 3 games in June tests between Ireland and NZ in NZ ? If yes, the second match was in Christchurch and Ireland only lost by 2 points. And at the third match, the ABs were so furious that they thrashed Ireland with a score like 60-nil ?

Brilliant Richie McCaw lineout move first done vs Springboks by Samoa in 2013

Thanks alot, PD, for your link. Pictures speak more clearly than text. So Richie McCaw was at the right place.

@calvdog: the ABs were not poisoned in 2012, half of the English population had the virus that same week. But it's true that the first thing that popped out of my mind when I learned the ABs were sick (again) was "Suzie!", lol.

All Blacks score late to deny Springboks in another Ellis Park classic

Do you know which French clubs are taking young NZ players to France ? And how can this be accepted by NZ rugby ?

Hansen will know if he can take him for the World Cup and at what rank. He looks like a very nice guy.

Levani Botia smashes Tonga to set up great Fijian try in Pacific Nations Cup

Afree with you, Boybath. And at the World rankings, they are above Italy and Scotland who play in the 6 Nations. Definitively not a small team by size nor talent.

André Watson looks back on 1999 RWC final in Referee Perspective feature

In 2011, Christophe Dominici (winger 14) admitted in an interview that after the semi-final, the French team celebrated the win until the Thursday when they eventually realised that they still had one match to play, that the competition was not finished yet.
I still do not understand how their coaches and staff could let the players do.

Wallabies snatch dramatic victory after Springboks fail to run down the clock

Agree with you on this one. The referee cannot blow the whistle each and every time there's an infringement, because there would be no game at all. And that makes them look inconsistent. Sometimes the ref are actually inconsistent, sometimes not. And we will always scrutinize the refereeing when both teams are close.

Exactly. Owens warned them before acting, he could have penalised them immediately.
