That fFRench referee should have been retired after the Six Nations. He's worse than bad.

Should be placed on the new Deep Red list, all by himself, never to be allowed into the UK.

Thanks for the graceful comment. My heart was certainly broken.

As they say in Afrikaans, "amper maar nog nie stamper nie". So near and yet so far!

Slept through that one GG but national day of mourning will be declared today... and will watch the repeat later. There will be much comment in the press too!! Penalty after the whistle? - I must get the son-in-law to explain that one!

There’s going to be more Van der Merwe’s playing for Scotland than the Springboks next month at Murrayfield :))

Looking forward to the rugby this afternoon. In am in an electronic hookup ( WhatsApp group) with friends in Cape Town, here, in the UK, France and New Zealand, so South African, English, French and Kiwi supporters who all agree on one thing only! Namely that the French have the most blood thirsty anthem!

England looking by far the better team at the moment. Thank God for Handre Pollard!

Close but England deserved the win. Marcus Smith was a ray of light in terms of pure rugby. I can't wait to watch the All Blacks game.

Wales looking good...

Aussies are on it too...

Excellent match..

The Kiwi's are in the Stad de France Stadium...

Looks like the Aussies might win it... Aussies in the lead by 2 points with 2 minutes to go...

What a game... superb...

Wales win.

RUGBY IS A GREAT GAME! ^:)^
