All 3 Tri Nations Teams defeated by Northern Hemisphere sides!!!

England 31-28 New Zealand
Ireland 18-9 Australia
France 31-10 South Africa

A couple of years ago these results would never happened but today it was proved that there is no longer a gap between Northern and Southern Hemisphere sides!

Next year's World Cup could go to SO many different teams it's unbelievable and I can't wait! Rugby Union is one sport that is at a very exciting point.......

What a match England V The All Blacks was! Both teams played fantastic and it could have went either way. It was the best match I've seen for a long time. I'd put money on this match being the final in 2003.

GO NORTHERN HEMISPHERE!!!

The match was great! It was so fast, one minute England were attacking and the next New Zealand were on our line!.

I'm still on a high about the result at the minute!

A sport that involves chasing an egg can provoke so much excitement?

Excuse me, I'm currently watching the bowls... (zzzzzzzzzzz)

I'd say between *some* northern hemisphere sides. Wales have been going backwards for some time NZ will put 50+ on us easy. We shall struggle this yr.
These were great wins undoubtedly but what we got to remember is they do not always bring their strongest sides for these tours. However, this is good news for rugby. Roll on the WC!

Wales had a good victory today against Fiji Pam. I know Fiji are hardly giants in the game but people who saw it were saying they looked the best they had in ages.

Change is good Kiwi Boy! With New Zealand,England,Australia,France,Argentina,South Africa and Ireland all capable of beating each other it's gonna make a great World Cup!!

Didn't the All Blacks leave out most of their Caturbury players, the guys who currently make up 95% of their starting roster.

That said, anyone who is fit to wear the jersey should be good enough to beat a 6 Nations squad.

Just don't get too excited, World Cup is next year and that's when the ammo is live.

I do give credit to England and to a lesser extent Ireland for finally starting to play some open positive rugby the last couple of years.

Jason Holland of Munster was a teammate of mine here in the States, I think he's on Ireland "A" (also Keith Wood is my favorite "Lion") so they are my 6 Nations team.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

The ABs were a very good side. Many of the players would walk into most national sides. Losing Devine and Lossy was bad. Danny Law played well but Merthens was crap. I never thought much of him and he showed why yesterday.

Needless to say I was going crazy when Douggie scored. I have known him for a long time and do plan to meet up with him to go to the Wasps Sale match once the tour has finished. I also was gutted at Ben Cohens tackle. Ben Blair was sssssssssoooooooooooooooooooooooooo close and should have scored. Having said that Tana should have been inside ready to accept the pass.

I also felt Taine Randell was rubbish as captain. He has the completely opposite style to me (and my record proves I know about captancy). I got the impression that a few of the player (who I will not name) felt that he lacked the abillity to inspire them after the third England try.

France next will be a challange. They did well last night. Unfortunatly I'm in Portugal and will miss the match. I wont predict the score of that. England will win all their matches but will have to do well on tour in the Summer to stand a chance in the World Cup.
