Sadly for Wales, the Springboks did turn up.

Assuming that Steve's right about the 'home teams', above......I wonder whether the Irish can beat the Aussies in the second semi, to get to the final.  Undecided

The Wales/SA game was a corker, can't believe how tight it was until that last try! Brilliant try too...

The All Blacks were simply awesome last night. I haven't seen such a one sided game for a long, long time. Wales did well considering their long list of injuries, but the first half penalties they gave away cost them the match. Not sure the Springboks can go all the way to the final though.

Why do I get a feeling all Northern Hemisphere teams will be out before Strictly starts...

There was an Englishman, Welshman and Irishman in the bar - the Scotsman, being a true Scot, said "Get them in I'll be joining you soon."

Typing this while Scotland are leading Australia but the Northern Hemisphere teams just seem so much slower and have less isdea in attack than the Southern Hemisphere teams

In the bar later the Englishman asks for a pint of Brains bitter because lack of brains lost them the match, the Welshman just asks for bitter, reflecting his feelings, the Irishman asks for Guinness because they lost through lack of strength. When asked the Scotsman asks for a wee one - no one dared ask why.

Felt really sorry for the Scots.
They played magnificently. (What a way to lose.  I don't want to see)

The Scots played well but the Wallabies were sloppy IMHO. Poor defence (or complete lack of) for the first Scottish try and a moment of madness for the second via the interception. When the Wallabies attacked they seemed to score and were much faster at the breakdown etc.

You really do notice the speed difference between the Northern and Southern hemisphere sides. We all look slow compared to the All Blacks et al.

That's coz you are  Tongue

Best moment for me so far: Savea bulldozing his way through 3 Frenchman to score - reminiscent of Lomu running over half the England team 20 years ago Cheesy

The penalty that wasn't one it appears. Craig Joubert didn't have a good game to say the least. He was penalising the Wallbies in the scrum, then completely missed the Scottish tighthead slipping his bind in the scrum  right in front of him. Scotland deserved to win for their sheer determination and team work.

Thank God we have Wayne Barnes and the brilliant Nigel Owens to referee the semi-finals, with hopefully the latter for the final. The Southern hemi-sphere teams are definitely better than their Northern hemi-sphere cousins, but their refs are pretty poor IMHO.
