Awesome performance by England. Puts Ireland's defeat to them in a better perspective. The match was much more one-sided than the scoreline indicates - England had two tries disallowed - one by a very marginal and possibly wrong decision.

I couldn't watch the match, did listen to some comments afterwards ... the All Blacks had a game plan ... adjusted their line-up ... lasted for less than 2 min as England crossed the goal line for their first try 🎃

As Mike Tyson was quoted ... the game plan lasted until a punch square in the face 😄

England were really quite good against the Blacks.

Actually I thought they were fantastic - really bullied the all Blacks in all areas. Awesome power allied to no little skill right across the team...

Yes but the Irish no longer have any need to put down the English - we now have them where we want them - the far side of a sea border...

You don't get a sea border down the middle of the pitch, though, do you?

Yes but it is the Welsh misfortune not to have one with England...As Eddie Jones said of Wales, "Wales. Who knows Wales? Are there any Welsh people here? So it's this little s*** place that has got three million people. Three million!" he said."

Wales has a 2:1 ratio sheep:people. Can Australia beat that?

Don't fall asleep ... keep them (down-under) apart by counting sheep. Aussies ratio 3:1 ...

Quite impressive the Falklands, they don't play ball do they?
