Excellent work Tyma, and thanks also to all those who pitched in to write about their favourite teams!

To curious potential Rugby Fans: rugby is the best and you should definitely give it a go. After one match youíll have a rough idea of whatís going on and will have a fab time!

Iíve had to make plans to watch Wales v Australia in Madrid of all places. Thank god for Irish bars!

Having to listen on the radio as I'm at work. Commentators are absolutely scathing about the Georgian defence.

loving hell - well worth finding the one place in Madrid to watch that game. So impressed by the Japanese right now. Also pretty damning for the Irish - all the issues from earlier this year right back on the pitch. Out in the quarters again!

Or when Wales beat Belgium at Euro 2016?

Hot drat itís the time weíve all been waiting for! Normally it has to be shoehorned in by whoever is doing commentary no matter who the match really involves but now, NOW finally the lawyers and accountants and round red men of the shires can get together and remember their far off youths whilst shouting boorishly about how no one really understands them...

ďAnd now letís talk about EnglandĒ

Or Welsh fans trying to act all cynical about their team's ability to perform but screaming at the top of their lungs of one of the players a) touch the ball and b) look in the direction of the try line.

Particularly during a tournament as important to the game as the World Cup, referees should not just be impartial, they should be SEEN to be impartial too. It was a dumb thing to do and Iím sure he didnít mean anything by it, but it looks less than ideal. And for that reason itís an error in judgement.

Yeah, it sucks for Williams but heís not been as incisive with his attacks as he can be, so I donít think itís a fatal loss. And Halfpenny is excellent so it should work out okay.

Ref has been loving dire this game - Wales have been their own worst enemies but France are grabbing necks as if they were killing chickens, and the last pass before the last French try was forward, but the ref canít be bothered to check anything.

Admittedly, I also hate ITV commentary. They need a natural audio, no commentary option.

Iíve got this match on on mute. Can highly recommend it.

Think that yellow card looked harsh.

Italy are just a bit too close and a bit too slow.

The yellow was apparently required as they can't adjust the red for head contact by more than one step.

Thanks for explaining this!

Galthier left the bubble, and half the team went out to have waffles in Rome. Surely the French just have to be kicked out of the Six Nations this year for putting everyone else at risk?

He's missed a few fairly serious tackles throughout the tournament, so that may have been enough to nudge him out of the team.
