Back in my youth I used to play rugby in England and Australia. But when I became an adult I lost interest because there was too much kicking.And watching the games there's a whole lotta kicking,especially the high up and under.Not feeling this World Cup so much beyond the S.A. vs N.Z. game. Will wait for the business end for it to get real.The group stage is just exhibition rugby.

Kicking is part of the game, a tactical ploy bro..anyways This game was over from the first 1/4, gutted for Argentinian fans and a bit of joke really, poms made to look fairly average even when playing against 14...

David Campese, is that you?

Three wins from three. Three bonus points. Top of the group and into the quarter finals.

What’s not to like? ^_^

This game was over from the first 1/4,

Not the Poms fault, they didn't put in the hit above the shoulder. There should have also been two yellows previous to that, one for either side. Sinckler's no arm tackle and the late shot by Matera on Youngs

gutted for Argentinian fans

As above, but the Poms far out numbered Los Pumas in the stadium.

made to look fairly average even when playing against 14...

The game was totally messed up with the red card and stoppages, but England got what they wanted (quarters spot).

Win, win well, win ugly - at the end of the day, people will only remember the winners at the end.
