Haven't seen much of this due to time difference, but the final's been great.

Australia are much improved from previous showings, and have just beat Samoa (which is gutting as I really wanted them to win).
Better performance by England, and I don't mind being knocked out by the team the wins it overall.


Anyone know how they work out the points? Fiji won the Plate but NZ got Third Place - Fiji only need 2pts to come level with NZ in the standings.

  1. Overall difference in points scored and allowed during the season.
  2. Total try count during the season.
  3. If neither of the above produces a winner, the teams are considered tied.

Ah right - makes sense.
Would love to see Fiji win the whole series.
