Refs are coping a lot of crap this world cup... TMO is just making the games slow too.
We are tending to get the right decisions, which is better than the wrong ones, but it's frustrating going to the TMO on nearly every try.
Strong display by the Argies.
In the second half!
Argentina can play 15 man rugby now, instead of 10, and it should be really interesting to see how they go against Ireland or France in the quarter
Tbf they were third at the last RWC.
No, in 2007. But yeah that's why I made the point to say 15 man rugby.
That was an impressive effort from Argentina. I feel that they can play 15 man rugby but they rarely choose to do so against the big teams and only do so on occasion.
They just need the confidence in their width game, they would've got a good boost from today and will hopefully go well against Nam and Tonga as well.
Sheesh was it that long ago... how time flies.
Yeah... they also beat France in the opener in 07 didn't they?
Yip and then beat them again in the 3rd/4th playoff. They were quite lucky to get 3rd that time around though. They only beat France twice, Scotland and a terrible Irish team. When they came up against South Africa they were well beaten.
I'll take your word for it... didn't follow 07 after what happened
Who was third and fourth last time?
I know we knocked Australia out in the semis.
was it Wales?
Australia beat Wales.
3rd and 4th playoff is a waste of time. The rankings do not seem to carry over to the next world cup.
Rankings? They're done off the points a few years out not past WC.
Starris don't you remember Wales getting red carded in the semi?
Yeah. I am agreeing with that statement. My position is that the 3rd vs 4th playoff is a waste of time because the rankings don't carry over to the next world cup.
Sorry mate just didn't follow what you were meaning. Agree that the 3rd/4th playoff is a waste because who wants to play after losing the semi.
I don't think I do. Refresh my memory.
