Savea's try was outrageous. Absolutely bulldozed three big Frenchies!
I seem to remember some pretty awesome scores in the Argentina Tonga game?

I've been really impressed with Argentina in this tournament, such power, pace and determination in their phase play and a willingness to always go forward. I'll be supporting them for the remainder of the tournament (now that literally every other team i've backed has been ejected!!!)

Not sure I follow these conspiracy theories about Joubert, but TMO protocol allows for the review of suspected foul play and important decisions, so I think it should apply to the final penalty yesterday.
Nevertheless, Scotland really shouldn't be throwing to the tail in torrential rain! Bad luck otherwise though, they put in a hell of a performance (damn sight better than England!).

Yes I'm English, but those two penalties look really soft to me.
The first one was a fair contest but then Brown is cleared away and the ball is ready for the Welsh scrummie to play. The delay on the ball coming back is fractional.
Garces didn't allow for any breakdown contest all night, but even this example seems pretty hasty of him to blow up. I guess it was due to the field position, because there's no way this would have been called a pen if the tackle was made on the original gain line (about 30 metres back).

I was there and the experience was fine. Walked in no fuss through the turnstiles, bags searched but no drama. Beer queues were minimal (nothing compared to queuing in middle and top tiers at twickenham!) though it was expensive (£5 for a bottle of Heineken).
Bit of a walk to the stadium from Stratford, but there's a few bars around the shopping centre.
I don't know what people were expecting, but it was fine. Especially if you're not someone who generally moans about everything anyway.

Agreed. Is the referee legally required to call 'Maul', or is this just something they tend to say?
Cole can feel hard done by I think.

Is it possible to un-hear/see something?!

If you think that's accidental you're smoking too much crack.
