Just tuned in. Has it been the kick fest and forward grind it seems from the couple of minutes I've seen?

This is a dire match, which suits SA perfectly. There's no other way they win the world cup than turning games into attritional kicking contests.

I wish Japan had beaten them in the quarters...

Our review identified changes needed to be made and, in Stephen, we have a coach who has a reputation for demanding the highest standards.

It's not since I was at school's match that I heard the first verse sung, which sets the whole song in perspective.

dont be like that, both teams are playing messily enough that it could easily be decided by penalties

Wales are playing some really error strewn rugby. Biggar has been quite bad as well.

Weíve played badly the whole world cup and somehow won, so itís not out of the question that biggar will continue to have a shocker and then thereíll be a grinding win at the end.

Wales should start going for drop goals whenever they get territory, this SA defense is dominating phase play.

I genuinely thought we were made of tougher stuff than this. I think in the future Wales should be allowed to bring extra substitutes because we clearly make our rugby players out of glass bones and elastic bands.

Absolutely. Shame they only have enough players for another ten or so minutes of rugby at the current rate of injury attrition

Yeah tbh Iíd rather lose a semi to South Africa than a final to England so a hard fought loss wouldnít be the worst thing, canít see wales beating England if they make it. At least if itís springboks England in the final we can all cheer for a meteor to hit the stadium.

If he gets punched it would draw a card, but he would also probably be dead. Not sure it would be a net benefit.
