As someone who is half English, half Welsh, I've always enjoyed the rugby and look forward to the autumn internationals. However, there were a few things of note that I'd like to discuss. Firstly, Barnes is still a complete tool, and him jizzing over the new Aussie scrum half was just pathetic, he even mentioned Nick Farr-Jones at one point and what the hell is up with that? The guy needs to be playing for another 10 years before he should be mentioned in the same breath as Farr-Jones, however talented he is. Secondly, how is it that again and again, the New Zealanders get away with murder? It really is so boring to see the same thing happen when anyone plays New Zealand. This isn't something I'm talking about because I was annoyed that Wales lost, I think the Kiwis played better and it was a fair result. Equally, I though the Aussies were better than England, not much, but again a fair result and i have not many gripes about that match and no complaints with Australia's style. The only thing of note is that the mullet wearing number 12 for Australia made quite a few hits on Banahan without even attempting to put his arms around the man, clearly a pre-thought tactic for him to target the big guy, but not carried out entirely legally. Like I said though, I'm not mentioning this out of spite, but there are the same things time and time again, like going in at the side of the ruck and not being penalised for it. Have the rules of rugby changed? because the amount of times New Zealand went over the top off their feet and not penalised was astonishing. Plenty of forward passes, holding back men who don't have the ball. The very fact that you are allowed to try and stand and get the ball from when you tackled the player and McCaw standing on the Welsh side and picking up the ball, on the Welsh side, shows that he's gone over the top or not rolled away every single time he makes a tackle. What is wrong with the IRB referees? why does this continually not get discussed and why don't the refs just continually ping the Kiwis for each infringement, whether it'd make for a few boring games or not is a small price to pay as they'd soon learn. At present they are openly flouting the laws of the game and making the IRB look like a bunch of idiots. Its also spoils the enjoyment of the match. When England lost to Australia, I was annoyed... at England. Firstly, the two tries were soft tries, Danny Care should have covered the first try but instead there was a huge gap there which any number of Aussies could have gone through. Monye should have made the tackle first time for the 2nd try and even though I think he should indeed be in the team, he should be playing Wing. Monye is quite simply not an international fullback and it surprised me that Johnson made such a schoolboy error in picking him there. I think we'd have been a lot better off having Foden start at 15. Like I said though, the match finished and I was gutted we'd not won, but I could pinpoint why. We made mistakes, Australia were slightly better. Simple as that. I cannot say the same about watching New Zealand, whenever I see a Kiwi game, regardless of the result, its always the referee who I'm focussing on the most at the end of the match. How boring is that?? Anyone else feel the same about watching New Zealand and their continual cheating?
