    Pocock is a ****ing beast. How did he come out of that with the ball?

      Fair point. And I think we did get better once we got into the game after the first 20.

      We were just 'blown off the park' in that period and all at sea, scrum, breakdown, contesting aerial ball . . . everywhere

        Hernandez experience is now a loss in this match. A bit like Ireland last week, they need cool heads now in the backs.

          Creevys breakdown brilliance is massive loss

            4-0 on tries. Hard to argue with that.

              Inexperience cost the Argies.

              The final is going to be superb.

                Seems the Aussie afterburners too much for them, hell of a try. Cheika is a rugby god but can they take The Blackness?

                    Disgraceful play from Drew Mitchell. How many opportunities did he pass up to set up a ruck?

                      I think they will. If NZ backrow play like they did last night, Pocock and Hooper will murder them and where the Boks were muck with the ball in hand, this Australian side is lethal.

                      Will be a belter of a match though.

                        Fitzgerald did similar though. They genuinely seem a bit uncomfortable with guys taking angles and running at their outside shoulder.

                          Yer man Isa has looked pretty handy with the ball in hand.

                              Been a belter of a game. Have to admire the Argies for their style and commitment. Brilliant to watch.
