 Unfortunately they don't show rugby where I'm at (No shortage of boring and gay baseball though...grumble grumble...), but just checked the scores for the internationals this past weekend. MUCH closer than expected. Is the South finally losing it's edge? What's happening in this world?? Aussies and Italy at 20 a piece at half time, with the Aussies inching out a win in the final minutes and Bokke barely beating Wales (20 - 15). All Blacks thumped Scotland though (And Ireland scorred 55 - 0 against Canada)

WELCOME TO THE RUGBY FORUM!!! :-D

Thanks Kirik!!!

So basically all the Southern Hemisphere teams are undefeated and set for a Grand Slam each, but you're complaining because the victories weren't emphatic enough? :P

 I think they've caught up when it comes to the level on their best day, but the Northern Hemisphere teams aren't as consistent as the Southern Hemisphere.

Take a look at recent World Cup results, France beating the All Blacks, England beating Australia in 2007, England winning the world cup in 2003 etc.
