I'm seriously considering swapping my allegiance from All Blacks, after 22 years of avoiding the question when asked "as a kiwi living here who do you support?".
They did a grand job in my opinion.

A very satisfactory weekend! A wheen of emotions from despair through ebullient joy with a fair dose of schadenfreude on Saturday.

I enjoyed listening to the game on the radio while drifting around Dunoon, Holy loch and across to Gourock. We saw loads of porpoise, and seals, caught mackerel (too small all went back to grow). Nice day, good sail, good company and a good result.

Strangely quiet on this subject? Only Samoa to beat and then we get to play Wales or Australia - what could possibly go wrong?

In mild state of shock at the outcome for England.

As you say - only Wales or Australia to beat all supposing we get through Saturday unscathed. Seems a stronger team available so fingers crossed - I really cannot take to Finn Russell though!. Read some nonsense about Big Vern's tactics being to let South Africa take the lead in the Pool so that we get an easier option in the next round.
Bollocks is not a word to be used lightly but I do believe it to be appropriate here.

The chappie was interviewing Jason Robinson and Ugo Monye

Got back after dropping the mast for lift-out next weekend, in time to watch the second half - phew!

Yeah I followed it on the Beeb also, out in the Gulf of Mexico for a while, and it looks like we meet the Australians next, which will be a very different game.
Wish I had seen it live, edge of seat stuff....

Watching in Thailand using an online service. Signal lost just as the scrum was being formed in front of the posts.....
Wallabies next will be a lot tougher. Hope springs eternal
