The Championship (Aus, NZ and couple of others)

#1
Anyone watching the Wallabies and Kiwis battering each-other?

All Blacks just up by 10-9 at the moment - good game so far!
 
#3
Referees enforcing a straight feed to scrum - hoorrah.

"Crouch-bind-set" now. Time to retire!
 
#4
Aus took the lead then committed defensive suicide.
 
#6
Some really blatant lazy running from ABs - nearly every time Wallabies cross the gain line there is a retreating black jersey!
 
#8
How were the new scrums? Heard some dripping that the non-put in side is always getting the push? True or just hookers being rusty at actually hooking?

Couple of strikes against head which cost Aus dearly. Also some penalties for feeding both ways. New bind law plus hookers having to strike may have led to what seemed like far fewer collapses and re-sets. Alternatively, it could have been well managed by ref - time will tell!

I think the new laws are better and are resulting in a lot less collapsed scrums and therefore more game time.

Aussie getting spanked again in Dunedin.

The hammerings that they're taking put the Lions tour into perspective.

I'm watching it by default as my husband is watching it on t.v. as I'm spouting bollocks on the internet. NZ All Blacks are winning 24 -16 over the Aussies.
