    Dear Wales

    If you keep giving NZ the ball back via shitty kicks, they’ll score tries against you all day.

    Why does the Welsh scrum-half pause before passing the ball from the ruck each time, allowing the defence to get set?

    Is this a tactical innovation? Sort of a rope-a-dope vibe.

    It would have been the brave or the stupid who put money on Wales tonight.

    Well done NZ. Selections made for a better balanced team.

    Wales - bit of a Curate’s Egg performance. A lot to be proud of along the way.

    A good game all in all. Thanks both.

    PS: Nice post-match sentiments by coaches and captains. Proper ruggers. The game we play in heaven.

    LOL Wales crash out of the World Cup

    AB's celebrating tries like they're teenage girls front row at fucken Beatlemania is not a cool look when you're playing for the wooden spoon at the Pitcairns Crippled Children Burn Clinic woggle-tying contest. In comparison, Grant Fox's face was black thundering death for the entire 80 minutes. As it should be. Fuck you and fuck your celebrations. This is garbage. He looked like he'd just come from barricading his entire family indoors then turning on the gas.

    Rieko's workrate was shit. Content to stand out on his wing waiting for the moon on a stick. Compared to Ben Smith scampering around like a maniacal jackrabbit

    Case in point: Mr Sawn Afterdavid himself. Geez he’s an unbelievable talent but this, the squawking, and the single arm sleeve almost did me in tonight.

    A good demonstration of why it's so important to lose one of your pool matches. ABs really dropped the ball there, could have been up against hapless Wales in the semis.

    Patchell was actually a lot better in attack than Biggar. I thought he would serve up more of the same stodgy, wait for a penalty and kick for the corner tactics but he took it to the line with some venom.

    ABs also seemed to have finally defeated the rush defence one game too late. Don't think Tuilagi would have been able to adjust if the ABs were running those angles when he was shooting last week.

    Can I just say congrats to Kieren Read on a fine career. He's a great footballer and by all accounts an even better bloke.

    Enjoy your retirement.
