Has Northern Hemisphere rugby finally caught up to their Southern opponents?
These last few results seems to say they have.
NZ, Aus and SA not very convincing of late and the Pacific islanders and Argentina losing their respective matches.
It may be a little early, but I hope so, as it will be good for the game. 7s in the Olympics and a very healthy ...[text shortened]...
Now, if the IRB can just sort out the Northern Hemisphere referees, then all will be well.

have to say i was very disappointed by s. africa, france made a lot of mistakes but still won
Originally posted by Crowleyyeah i noticed that, that's one area were france really dominated. i expect them to be a stronger in dublin in a couple of weeks... maybe try out some of the guys we don't get to see a lot of up here. we have a lot of players who haven't played a lot of rugby in the past few weeks so after the aus and fiji games they should be ready for sa.

We always do this - we just can't seem to sustain good form. Losing two of our star players and our coach's insistence of keeping John Smit at prop is costing us momentum. Smit as good captain, but he is being targeted in the scrums now.
