Sport tragic. Rugby nut from India. Trust me, there aren't many of my kind. Favourite teams - Manchester United, All Blacks, Springboks, Sydney Roosters, NSW Origin, Proteas, Black Caps, Waratahs.

That rugby league style set play from Ireland with as many as three passes out the back to set Stockdale and Earls free was a thing of beauty. 😀

It was all Ireland until that one mistake from Kearney. Nice work from the Wallabies backline to take advantage immediately and score. Shows they have what it takes to crack this defence, they would have scored another early on through Koroibete if not for an amazing tackle from Stockdale. Really impressive winger, Stockdale.
Ireland great in possession and in the air too (except for a couple of errors from Kearney), Wallabies dangerous with ball in hand but haven’t had much territory or possession at all. Enthralling contest.

Agree on everything. Thomas was their best player tonight.

Boy the French needed to keep that out if they wanted any chance to win this match. Great confidence boost there.
But funny they didn’t check the replays, it was hard to see how he was held up.
Absorbing match.

What a match. The Wallabies have found a back row they can count on for years to come.
Curious performance from the All Blacks, I don’t know how much of a difference Golden Balls Barrett would have made, but they were very inaccurate today. Too many penalties. That’s also perhaps a nod to the Wallaby defence, I think they had a very low missed tackle count compared to the All Blacks.
Congratulations to the Wallabies, boy did they and their fans ever need a result like this. Great to see.

What a match. So refreshing to see the Boks put up such a performance against the Darkness.
But seriously, what was that red card!?

Great stuff from both sides. Great resilience from the Boks and some incredible last ditch tackles from the All Blacks. Havili’s tackle on Kriel was unreal.
Malcolm Marx is having the game of his life out there.

Yep, we’ve seen this before haven’t we?

He was pretty much the best All Black on the pitch for me.

The lineout after the hooter rule should be changed to something like allowing only one lineout from a penalty after the hooter. Yes it was a great half but this ending became a little farcical.

Side effect of that rule change where you can play the lineout after the whistle.

The grounding was 50-50 there but Barrett also had a hand on Kriel in the in-goal. Could have been pulled up for obstructing play. But I guess Kriel had lost the ball already. Tough luck for the Springboks.

SBW’s been kinda sub-par today.

South Africa vs New Zealand highlights: Rugby Championship live scores, blog

Wow what a passage of play! Cronje just had to pass and Jantjies would probably have gotten through.

How was that not a forward pass from Barrett.

Good match so far. All Blacks slightly sloppy, Bokke very spirited. But even then the All Blacks should have scored two tries already. Only a matter of time until the dam bursts.

I loved how Garcès was caught in the middle. xD

What a team. Really were the best from week 1. The most fitting champions ever.

Scott Allen is back! How did I miss his return a couple of weeks ago?!
Welcome back, top notch analysis as always. It’s astonishing just how much improvement the Wallabies need to make, and likewise how poor Argentina are that they just could not take advantage of the chances they had.

Did the Wallabies realise they were playing a Test match against Argentina?

Honestly their performance last week suggested it was going to be exactly like it’s transpired here.

All Blacks vs Springboks: Rugby Championship live scores, blog

This team is redefining attacking rugby. The way they maintained possession along the touchline even through multiple tackles. What can you say? Just watch and marvel.

Yep, looks like it’s gonna be a scrappy affair.

If you eat truffles every day they will eventually taste just like vegemite.
What a line.
