There is only one game of significance this weekend - the best team in the northern hemisphere against the best in the southern. I fear an annihilation. New Zealand by thirty.

It was nice that they won, but I don't especially care about a match played as an exhibition game for Americans. I'll care when they beat them in Ireland, New Zealand or an RWC. Soon enough, we will beat them with regularity.

The All Blacks dont do exhibitions. That's their difference.

Do you live like a wet weekend in Southend every day?

According to the IRB England are the best team in the northern hemisphere. But what would they know compared to you?

Ireland were very good in Chicago. England still havent lost their stilted play but under Jones they are looking promising especially with a few PI's in the side like Vunipolo.

It's quite possible that England will end 2016 as the only undefeated international rugby side in the world for the calendar year, with a 6 Nations Grand Slam and a 3-0 whitewash of Australia in their own back yard already achieved - a clean sweep of the AIs and a 2016 consisting of Played 12 Won 12 awaits.

That's a record no Irisher could even dream of. Look at Iolar getting carried away with the first ever defeat of the ABs, after 116 years of trying.

I'm looking at an accumulator bet for Saturday, with the inevitable London Irish thrashing of the Cornish Pirates thrown in to make it 7 matches, with the easybeats like Fiji and Ireland offering short odds, it comes out about 7/1.

But Italy vs SA looks a hard call - plus I might end up relying on the French to beat the Wobblies when of course you should never rely on the French.

No the IRB still exists just under a different name. Is that concept a struggle for you? Please don't disappoint and live down to your national stereotype-it is not a view that I have ever subscribed to.

Great shout but I fear that London Irish will let you down as the Cornish Pirates will be up for it on National Pasty Day......

Italy by 5, more ignominy for the hapless Boks
England to win by at least 20, with the English-Fijian tank driver to score.
Wales by 10, to get pushed by Japan, but a late try to polish the score.
Tighter than a gnats chuff, I can't call Argentina vs Scotland. To be won by less than 3 points.
Ireland to get creamed. Lightening doesn't strike twice, and there will have been some serious beasting behind closed doors. ABs by 20.
Australia to beat France, by something.

ABs v Ireland start here at 1:30 am, not sure I'll be able to stay awake, and the wifi is slow, but I should be able to get a stop start stream. Should be a brutal match, the Irish are good and the ABs will be charged up.

Its a good point, Lincoln. And all the top teams are doing it, creaming the top talent from the pacific islands.

It basically comes down to money.

Each Fijian was paid £400 today. That is woeful.

Anyhoo, Billy Vunipola is the only 'foreign' walk on to an England 1st XV.

And at least the English-Fijian on the wing today is a tank driver in the British Army.

So, he's serving his chosen country in two ways.

But, he won't be playing when Watson is fit.

Ireland were poor in the New Zealand twenty-two, but it was much closer than the scoreline suggests. Barrett was the difference. It was great to watch the best two teams in the world.

Look at Iolar getting carried away with the first ever defeat of the ABs, after 116 years of trying.


Carried away! I was entirely insouciant, moron.

The low standard in rugby championship has made the AB's appear better than they are. On that performance I reckon England could take them. Ireland unlucky with injuries but ultimately they are a bit predictable behind the scrum.

And an away tour result in NZ would be amazing.

At the end of the day its all about getting good sporting match ups.
