    Last game for Puma-prop Roncero.
    Will he get a Wallaby pelt in his swan song?
    Oh I think so.

    I doubt it… I have the Wallabies @ $2.8 between 1-12 pts…

    If not… Deans will be gone…

    VERY poor game.
    Worst handling I’ve seen in a test.
    How in hell did the Boks not beat
    the Pumas in Argentina?
    :Rule 9:

    Shameful Puma display.
    There were so many knock-ons you would have sworn the game was played in a driving rainstorm – but it wasn’t of course.

    All credit to the Australians. Once again they showed a McGyver like scrap to get it done whith whatever is on hand at the moment.

    Aus was RIPE for the picking and Argentina decides to wet the bed.

    I have to ask, just how bad has the standard of rugby in this Championship been?

    Boks, Aus and Argentina are nowhere at the moment, and as good as the ABs undoubtedly are, it does put their record into some sort of perspective.
