FIJI – lively in patches but lacked any semblance of a set-piece.
WALES – outthought, outplayed and outfought by Argentina. Strength in depth? My arse.
ARGENTINA – tough as ever but now also creative and clearly benefitting from playing in tournament formerly known as the TriNations.
IRELAND – how can 3 provinces individually be so mighty and yet collectively be so mediocre?
SOUTH AFRICA – not quite as mediocre as Ireland.
SCOTLAND – gutsy and resilient but blinked too often and every time they did so conceded a try.
NEW ZEALAND – ability to accumulate points so rapidly is what sets them apart.
FRANCE & AUSTRALIA – didn’t see it and haven’t seen any highlights but the score sort of speaks for itself, doesn't it?
