As scheduled, the Blacks were better...

But one very good news for the french team, it's the end for Philippe St André!

Looks like an all-Southern hemisphere semi-finals.

Wales fall agonisingly short yet again and Ireland dumped out by Argentina!

And with no chance of Scotland springing a surprise this afternoon (its just a question of how much the Aussies win by) there are no Europeans left.

Warspite as a Scotsman I agree . However scots rugby in particular is often at its best when the team is written off . Remember Murrayfield 1990 a scots team that were supposed to turn up and keep the score down. Here is a thought Scotland are making the best with what they have Can all the home nations say the same?
Game is about top start so lets see

Well England clearly not and Wales could have won that game but have been unlucky with injuries so probably did about as well as they were going to.

We are talking sport here so yes it is possible Scotland could win (and I certainly hope they do) but I will run down the street naked if they get within 10 points of Australia - i.e. it ain't gonna happen.

well ok, we are losing .. and the referee isn't helping but it looks like W-1s run is on.

Now I note he hasn't specified the street, I nominate Janefield St, Glasgow G40 ... any other ideas?

edit: oh god, why can't Scotland just go and lose easily ... this is awful to watch/hear (& I don't really like rugby)

edit2: looks like the run maybe off ...

edit3: looks like more than Ws run is back on, all we need to do is to kick the ball where it needs to go

edit4: which it doesn't

edit5: looks like the run may be off again ...

edit6 ... and due to the rain we only go and take the lead ... with 5 mins to go

edit7 ... oh no

edit8 ... and we go back behind with 30 seconds left

Ho Ho Ho Ho. 35-34 to Australia. I hope it's not too chilly

Seriously though, Scotland played very well and we were sloppy. We were lucky to get away with that and will have to be much better against Argentina. It might all be academic considering how good the All Blacks look.

I shouldn't watch these games. I've held my thumbs for Wales. I've held my thumbs for France. Then for Ireland. And finally for Scotland.

Go figure...

Whatever, I liked watching Australia vs. Scotland and South Africa vs. Wales most - thrilling to the end!

The Argentines rang...they've asked you to stop holding your thumbs Isn't that some weird Mittel European version of keeping your fingers crossed?

Anyhoo, it's not all bad for England. They've climbed above Winterfell on the latest official rugby standings apparently

Australia did their best to lose that match - even the move with James Slipper (a prop) at 1st receiver 40m from the goal-line, in pouring rain and with 6 minutes left, throwing a deep cutout pass to a winger running an awkward line didn't work! Tries were gifted to Scotland at such regular intervals that I thought at one stage an Indian bookie must be coaching the team. At least we won despite our own ineptitude and Scottish doggedness, and are through against an Argentinian team who may have played their final two weeks too early.

It is quite apparent though that Australia cannot win this World Cup without Mr. D.Pocock. His calf will be the most discussed piece of human anatomy this week in the Australian media, even if some of those beauties in the other thread were to bare themselves on national television!

Cheers,

Sometimes you need to be careful with predictions, and what you will do if they don't come off! In 2008 I watched the Wallabies play Italy in Padova, and declared that if Australia were to lose I would swim across the Grand Canal naked. At halftime it was 14-14 and I was staring at a pretty cold swim. Only a late try to Australia saved what might have been an embarrassing transit of the canal and possibly a night in an Italian jail cell.

Cheers,

Semi Finals this weekend:

NZ should be too slick for the Springboks, and Australia, with Pocock and Folau back, should knock over Argentina in a close game.

Those were my exact feelings this morning! Too much kicking away possession and some of those grubbers were a waste of good ball. Still, winning ugly is still a win. The Boks were always going to be tough. On to the next semi-final now, Go the Pumas!

Phew!!!

That was worrying for a time there. As has been proved time and again - never write-off the Aussies in sport.

Congratulations to the Kiwis!! Deserved.

The All Blacks are well deserved winners, been the best team in world rugby for the past 4 years.

The Wallabies needed everything to fall their way to have a chance, and it just didn't happen on the day.

Cheers,
