A bit of alliteration there - but the American Eagles really did get a proper doing 64 -0. Now I expected a bok victory but it was so total, so complete that there was only 1 team on the pitch -especially in the second half. The American scrum was awful - pushed all over the park by the stronger South Africans almost at will.
Frankly I was surprised at how bad the USA were. They have played better but the Springboks are really on form now.
Wales have a hill to climb I really hope they can do it.
Now if Samoa beat Scotland- unlikly I grant you but not impossible tyhen Japa may Qualfy- which would be fantastic especially as they should I hope be able to beat the USA. Though we are told the USA have "targeted" that game and fielded an understrength side against the boks ..... Hmmmmm
Should be an interesting weekend of blood and thunder.
Times of the games here.
Along with lots of other info
You will of course notice that I've been notably silent about the England disaster. I didn't see it as I was in Derby but the result says it all. A customer- Derek was there and knows his rugger, better than I and opined that the Australians gave us an object lesson in how to play a game. English Discipline was again very poor so we deserved our kicking !
Nuff said move on .....
