Re: TRI NATIONS 2020 R5: Pumas v All Blacks MATCH THREAD: Nov 28, 08:45 GMT

Argies with a functional scrum + a pair of halfbacks that could kick for territory properly would've been a substantially tougher ask, as it was getting 0 points was pretty much a fair reflection of how awful they were at gaining + using attacking ball With the two starting props, scrum was always ...

Well done ABs

Normal service resumed. You never let us in the game, and ended up collecting the points on behalf of the defensive pressure. Our defense held for a decent 70 minutes, but with the dominance you had up front it was always an uphill battle. At the end of the first half, our 9/10 duo had tackled as mu...

Mate, it feels like a win from this side too. You seemed to have it in the bag at the hour mark.

We could've won it in the last chase too, and it would've been unfair (not that I would mind... 8) )

I think that's the general feeling.
