Haha man, great start for the Tahs.

My tipping was not 7/7 though .

Had the Hurricanes, Tahs, Brumbies, Reds, Bulls, Sharks, Crusaders to win their games.

Tigers ground out a nice win against Wasps, great to see our signings having such a good season, Mafi has been inspired recently.

Is that really true? That's mental. The boy has serious talent though. Quade Cooper is perhaps my second or third favourite player around at the moment.

Cooper always does stuff like that. He's a magician but when it doesn't come off it looks so bad.

I can't remember the specific incident you're talking about, but I'm not saying that he was trying to do something amazing. Sometimes he does amazing things and sometimes he bombs the basics (as well as attempted amazing things).

Cooper had a very forgettable game on the weekend, his errors were noticeable and he had no great moments.

O'Connor probably outdid him at number 10 just in terms of that match, on paper O'Connor is a good number 10 to oppose Cooper - definitely you'd say, O'Connor would tackle Cooper no trouble, his defense is commendable. Cooper's defense is so unreliable that in their defensive arrangement they often swap him out to do the sweeping and have a better tackler guard his channel.

Cooper is worth it when he's on song though, just wasn't a game for his highlight reel.

I think the Waratahs will come out on top of the Reds next week, and the Rebels might be in for another trailerpark honeymoon at the hands of the Brumbies.

To be fair to him, it was the decoy runner's fault as well. He was being lazy and didn't create the gap for the miss pass.

Cooper should have noticed that the pass wasn't on, but the pass should have been on because the decoy was standing in the line.

But not in Australia/New Zealand...

Should have been obvious the Crusaders were never going to do anything but front up with everything they had in that situation. Great performance.

He's normally a good kicker too Twelvetrees, huge boot with hardly any run up, weird style. Missed the game unfortunately but heard they were stinkers.

JM Hernandez may miss the World Cup with a fresh injury .

Am I ever going to see this guy play again?

Kaplan has been suspended from Super rugby refereeing for three weeks after the Wales/Ireland debacle.

I've always maintained Kaplan is by far the worst referee in world rugby. Closely followed by that tank of a SH guy.

didn't deserve to win but a ridiculous way to lose

bloke should be sacked although missing out on a big game in the world cup might just be punishment enough

Honestly all they needed to do to avert that whole situation was use the TMO to verify whether the ball had been changed or not.

They use the TMO to check things like drop goals when the refs aren't sure, so there'd have been no reason not to use it there. The Irish team were begging for it to be sent upstairs and I just can't fathom why it wasn't checked in that manner.
