Well done Leinster, totally dominant over the Scarlets throughout.

Ospreys off to a poor start against Zebre, as well. :dread:

This is turning out to be a pretty bad afternoon.

Farcical try scored by Wales to (probably undeservingly) beat SA in Washington last night:



What this doesn't show is Wales had already charged down a kick 5 seconds before. Not sure I've ever seen two charge downs in succession like that :lol:

Had to make do with listening to it. Why oh why did England not snaffle Shane Edwards as defence coach when they had the chance? Oh, let me guess, Union elitism....

WRU have announced Wayne Pivac will takeover from Gatland post 2019 World Cup.

Very happy with that. Achieved success and exciting rugby with the Scarlets.

Can't wait to see what he can do with the side. I'm looking forward to seeing some more exciting rugby coming from this.

Sam Warburton has announced his retirement at only 29, due to injury problems.

Sad end to a brilliant career.

Yeah it seemed to come out of the blue, made a big impact in a short space of time, its a real shame to see him go out like this.

Always comes across as being a really nice bloke. Great shame for him but I'm sure a career in punditry beckons - if that's what he wishes.

So, I think that makes us number 1 ranked team in the world. :datass:

First team in northern hemisphere to stop all blacks scoring a Try and we battered them.

I'm fairly sure the points difference in the IRB rankings is too great for you to switch places with them after this win, but I could be wrong.

Amazing game by the Irish. I was on the edge of my seat for all the last 10 minutes. Can't believe they kicked possession away with less than 2 minutes to go, though. :dread:

Great day of rugby all around, really. Scotland were unlucky, but SA were the better team overall. Not sure how confident I feel about Wales holding them off next week, but at least we have some momentum behind us with an unbeaten autumn series so far.

Neither of those things are correct, Ireland are still ranked second in the world and in 1995 France kept New Zealand tryless.

Great scenes all the same, the world cup cant come quick enough!

I was kidding, I know it doesn't make us the No.1 team in the world, I'll be sure to put a winky next time.
