Nail biting finish to a great game.
Only downside was I had no Rev James beer in the house to celebrate with.
Will be remedied before the Fiji game.

Interesting that Wales have developed the knack over the last year of winning tight games, whereas in previous years they were consistently losing those games, especially to the Aussies. Despite the intense physicality, and often brutality of the game, in such matches it is inevitably the smarter team that triumphs. The one that is able under pressure to make the correct decisions most often.

Particularly amused by the pitiful whinging of the Aussie players, coaches and media. Their inability to accept being beaten by the better team on the day, and blaming everyone and everything except themselves I find rather child like, and reminiscent of those League 2 mangers whose team have just been beaten by the County.

Fiji next.10:45a.m. 9th Oct. Not too early for a beer is it? A talented, yet unpredictable side. More smart decision making will be required to triumph, but I'm quietly optimistic.

Yeah, same here. It's certainly not a time I choose to sit with a beer shouting at my telly.

A colleague (Swans season ticket holder) was telling me the police had shifted the Swansea v Cardiff game to a Sunday at noon to avoid having loads of boozed up fans looking for a ruck.

Unfortunately this may backfire as they've moved it to an hour or so after the end of the Rugby World Cup semi-finals.

Absolutely, I'm disgusted at World rugby for making no attempt to reschedule the cancelled games. Feel extremely sorry for those supporters you have mentioned. Even a 48hour delay to allow the Typhoon to pass would still have given teams a reasonable time to recover before the quarter finals. Now at least 3 teams England, France and New Zealand will have played a game less than their next opponents, a clear advantage given the attrition rate of the games. I Think Perisse (Italian) had it spot on when he said 'if NZ needed the points to go through, instead of Italy, I'm sure the game would have been rescheduled.' This episode has spoilt and tarnished the competition for me.

Nevertheless da iawn Cymru for beating Fiji. Another example of the teams fortitude and decision making, beating a team with a bigger stronger and quicker back division. Pob Lwc against France...…….presuming of course we beat Uruguay.

It does seem odd that there are no contingency plans given how few rugby world cup games are cancelled. In the cricket world cup you kind of expect cancellations and rained off games but not rugby :cry:

Yes indeed. So enjoyable watching Japan kicking the ball less than most other teams, getting the ball in and out of the scrum quickly, and relying on their passing and handling skills to play the game at pace. How believe the game should be played.

Most teams in this World Cup are going to be battered by this All Black team. England next. Then Wales if we make it that far. They are truly superb and in a league of their own.
