Now I guess we have to play the All Blacks......
I`m glad that 2 of 3 celtic teams are out,now IRB have to think about other teams.Sure Scotland will go home.[/b]
Baaaaah! Just confirmed the story of the Group of Death to date. Argentina powerful, rucking and tackling like maniacs. Ireland too weak up front, getting in a panic. Even if ROGs kicking had been up to scratch, it wouldn't have made the difference.
Both teams' second tries were beauties, and Hernandez is incredible under the high ball.
Well done, Arg. Playing Scotland will be like looking in the mirror - so watch out for Paterson's penalty kicking.
Good performance by Argentina.
I'm so looking forward to the Argentina-South Africa semi. That is, if nothing goes wrong against Scotland, who had a hard time beating Italy to reach the quarters anyway...
Hernandez has such class! What a game by him. F. Contepomi didn't play his best at centre though... I'm very impressed with the tackling technique of the Argentinian players throughout the pitch. And the work they do in the rucks to retain possession is just awesome. Their n8 had a great performance too, especially in the mauls.
Vamos Pumas! :cheers:
