Watching this on the train to Liverpool.

What a game.

Korobiete turned Daly inside out for his try.

Glad Sinckler went over he got frustrated first half.

Come on england we’ve got this!

We have had the better discipline, more control, better balance to our play and have stuck to our game plan. Australia have looked a bit of a shambles, quite honestly and these are the reasons we have won this match

Australia have looked like a shambles because we have made them look like that with the pressure our defence applies.
Underhill and Curry in particular have been excellent.
Hooper & Pocock? who needs them :wink:

Great to beat the Aussies in any sport, even better to send them home.

They huffed and puffed but tactics (what were them kicks from the starts all about) worked against them and England were just fantastic Thought Sinckler did well and didn't let them get at him and answered them with the try best way to shut people (Aus) up :lol:

Ireland are being overwhelmed, noticeably slower than the Kiwis. On the rare occasion they manage to get into the opposition half, they make a handling error or concede a silly penalty.

I notice Ireland's hooker is wearing a white scrum cap. They're playing with a white ball.

Game over by half time, New Zealand clinical, but Ireland have played right into their hands, far too many mistakes by the men in green

Where England's defence dominated Australia, Ireland have been dominated.
Their best best attack in the 1st half has resulted in a try from Barrett!

The last play of the half summed up Ireland. A penalty to Ireland 5 metres from the line was immediately reversed by an Ireland player diving into the ruck leading with his shoulder.
