The Argie could have got down on the kicked ball at the end there rather than trying to put it on the toe again.

Generally poor game plan and looked lost. Rennie out!

Tough on Argentina. Four weeks in a row while the opposition get a week off each time

If they go on and win the comp, they will definitely have earned it. :thumbup:

Kudos for the Argies for hanging in there. Wobs only team in it for 60 min, at the end they didn't deserve it.

Argies are such a negative team, should stick to positive rugby, it has paid dividends.

Sio is shit. Paisami and Petia very ordinary. Tupou should pull his head in and focus on playing rugby.

Thought Nic White played well.

From AR side, this tie feels like a win :D

I still cannot believe how resilient the Pumas are on defense for 80 minutes! AU had the upper hand in the first half but could not monetize its 2 clear opportunities, and then deflated between the 60 and 75 minutes.

AR continues to lack a coherent approach to attack, but what can you expect from a team that has played its second test match in the year, and with a rookie 12. :o

I will be waiting for the next match anxiously :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

They are still rusty! It is hard to have a well oiled attack with so few matches over their shoulders with this lineup.

On the other hand, their defense and conditioning are epic!!!

I'll take the result... could've lost it by a lot in the first half, could've stolen in the last chase.

Much more than the expected from this group in their conditions. Completely outplayed in the first half, with nearly no posession and no clear obtention, and then matching them in the 2nd.

Australia moved the ball better in midfield, and Orlando had a shocker, but the team still managed to get the draw.

Sanchez looked cooked in the end, don't know if he will be there next week...

A draw is probably a fair result in the end but Australia could and should have built a much bigger lead before the hour mark . Argentina will be the happier team with that result

Wallabies the best team of the night. Let's hope that in the second game, the weather conditions will be more friendly with the open game.

If we assume the ABs win next weekend (because, why not)

Then the last week becomes the clincher.

Could go any way!

Mate, if we could get tickets to the post match piss-up in the home change room (which is the RGs I think) one night a season, I'd like it to be this one. The days of drinking till you're sick are gone, but I reckon it'll be a ripper.

Unfortunately some teams consider themselves above such interaction with the opposition.

Quit your pathetic needling. Every second post is a dig at the bitterness in your heart from the nearly two decades of Bledisloe losses.

What was great this season was the Wallabies and All Blacks enjoying an after match beer in the sheds and Cane presenting Hooper for his 100th test. But keep up with your crying.

Edit: typo.

And credit also to the ABs and Cane giving Slipper a gift in good grace, despite just losing.

Hodge looked good again at 10
Petaia should try and offload more after a break
Impressive defence for long periods by Argies

The winner of this tournament would have harder games than most WC winners

Most players interviewed are pissed about not managing to do better in this one.

Yet, if two weeks ago, someone would've told me that the three teams would be tied at 6 apiece at this point, I would've thought he was mad...

Ledesma stated in his post match interview that there might be several changes for next week, since that was the original planning.

Conditioning will be a huge factor for these next two weeks, and LP might end up suffering the four matches in a row. Sanchez looked done at the end, and he was limping for most of the second half.

Imhoff had to be subbed early and he might be done for the rest of the tournament... Fortunately Boffelly, who was grimmacing after his last kick is apparently well.

A bit sad to add a draw to the long list of games from recent years where we dominated most aspects but still did not win, especially as one of our disallowed tries was yet again the support player getting ahead of the passer - when will we learn?

All Blacks in the box seat to win the RC now.

Feels like it, since Los Pumas might need to rest some starting players next week. Shame about that last second try they scored last week,.. otherwise they'd be a point behind and odds would be different.
