    First 30mins of this Aussie v England game...

    Great game so far... These 2 look like they want to play some positive rugby today.

    The poms need to take advantage of there attacking raids they have... They also need to commit more men to the breakdown... You can't go in with 1 or 2 guys against Pocock... He will just eat you alive.

    Aussie are absolutely playing it perfectly... Handle England pressure than hit back when you get a chance... And Foley scored a great try... They just need to be more accurate at the set piece.

    Wow!! What a wonderful try by Aussie!!

    Great change of direction by Genia... Brilliant inside out play by Foley and Beale.

    Foley is leaving Quade Cooper in the rear view mirror...

    And England... 17-3 down... :lol:

    Won't even make it out of the group of there own tournament... :lol:

    Pommie coach will probably be sacked. The Times will rip into their team. Sir Clive described the Aussie team as dumb. Thanks for the motivation, Sir Clive.

    I seriously can't believe how good Australia were against England. Just awesome - Foley chose to save his most masterful performance for pretty well the best game possible outside of a World Cup final.

    Where the f**k are Danny Cipriani and Clive Woodward now?

    This is one of my favourite memes to come out of it:

    Wallabies leading Wales 9 - 6 at halftime. I don't think it's been as dour as the score line might suggest. Australia needs to show a bit more patience in attack but the defence has been great.

    Amazing defence from the Wallabies to hold out Wales with only 13 men for 7 minutes

    Wallabies win 15 - 6. For a game without tries it was pretty enthralling. To show up two UK teams in front of home crowds is a great effort.

    Scotland next week.

    Incredible defensive stand, rode their luck a bit with Wales knocking on over the line but that was incredible

    Great win by the Wallabies. Their effort in defence was immense!

    That Samoa Scotland game was hellaciously entertaining, while I'm glad Scots are through, I would've loved to see Japan make a history with finals qualifier if they beat USA. Oh well.

    Not sure which team I want AB'S to face in quarters, either of our World Cup nemesis France or a determined Ireland could potentially upset us (would much rather be kicked out of the cup by Ireland than France again!)
