Hamish Watson - England


I feel like you could be born on the moon and still qualify for Scotland if you're named Hamish.

I listen to a lot of football podcasts but never found a decent rugby one. Any one have any recommendations?

Just woke up and saw it was another classic performance from the world number ones.

I know it's always the way but it's frustrating that there are only 2 pool matches left that mean anything. I really hope they don't add more teams any time soon.

I see your point, but all you're doing is then adding an extra knockout round that'll also be a procession for most teams.

Japan played some blinding rugby. Fantastic. Fukuoka is an absolute flyer.

Eddie Jones has selected Farrell at 10 and dropped Ford to the bench. Which considering that's exactly what Lancaster did before the Wales game in 2015 has me spooked as hell.

I'm loving furious. Let's just get this out of the way - England were the better team tonight. Let's state that, and move one, because none of what I'm about to post is intended to detract from that fundamental point.

The All Blacks played like poo poo when it mattered, and the referees let England get away with way, way, way too much. From the kick-off, the England defenders were consistently living offside, and as usual, no action was taken regarding a hit around Whitelock's throat just prior to him shoving Farrell, and his graceless dive. Slade's shoulder charge should have, at the very least, been a penalty and a yellow, and a potential penaltyi try situation. The fact that Curry so blatantly obstructed the All Blacks defence towards Underhill's disallowed try, and Owens still tried to award it before the TMO intervened speaks volumes.

England played better, and the All Blacks played like poo poo, but gently caress me, it was a 15 vs 16 situation at times.

I honestly haven't seen one English person on the media or otherwise say that they don't like the haka.

I've seen a lot going on about how the V formation was this incredible gesture, which I don't really get, but yeah nothing really negative about the haka.

ah fair enough, lineker is a prick. surprised he's not been #metoo'd yet considering some of the poo poo you hear about him.

You wouldn't, your first reaction was to post "at least its not Wales" and then when a welsh fan points out England is insufferable when they win you pout.

Frankly other than maybe Japan (and I viousky Wales) I don't think I would have supported anyone else over SA. I have three black South African friends and the first black captain is a big deal for them and the fact that they won the world cup with him leading them is a big deal. I'm really glad they won for that reason, and they also just played really good rugby.

That being said, English fans like you and the other guy generally make it really easy to enjoy seeing them lose.

Every country has annoying fans when they win I donít think a particularly English phenomenon
