Weekend observations

  • England are improving. Only 13 penalties conceded against the mighty Romania. That’s one fewer than against the mighty Georgia, an improvement in anyone’s book.
  • The All Blacks are in cruise control. Still no clue as to how they will react when (if) put under pressure.
  • Richie McCaw. Congratulations. 100 caps and still, for me, the best 7 in world rugby. On-field presentation/speech etc, however, not a good idea.
  • Scotland. Oh dear. Defeat from the jaws of victory. England can expect the kitchen sink on Saturday.
  • Barring slip ups against Italy and Fiji respectively it’s looking like an Ireland v Wales quarter-final. Which, in turn, means one of Ireland or Wales in the semi-final of the World Cup. Strange days indeed.
