  • Have to feel slightly sorry for mark Wilson and Tom Curry, both of whom had bloody good games. Interesting that Eddie has tried the second five-eighth again but has not looked at Slade in that position. Suggests he sees him purely as a 13.



  • Another great half of rugby.

    All to play for.

    Some great tries scored.

    Argentina 13 - 18 England

    And Ugo Monye you're a tit.

    If you're going to bitch and moan about Mike Brown not being in NZ at least know that Cory Hill is a forward and Cory Allen is a back who's still with Wales.



  • Argentina made so many mistakes. Deserved to lose. England played smart rugby.



  • Mike Brown passed! Twice!! Leading to tries!!! Truly we live in an age of wonders.



  • @Disgusted-of-TW said in Argentina v England (2nd test):

    That's deserving of an MBE at least for Eddie

    The commentators, notably Guscott, were smirking over this afterwards.



  • Sounds like Francis was good in the first half but made a critical error in the 2nd. No surprises there ...

    LOL'd at this:

    A really positive first half with the inside centre combining well with Mike Brown for his score and showing some deft hands, but his second half kick cost his side a soft score and could well have swung the match. Time spent in the ultra-competitive Premiership with Northampton will improve his composure.
