Watching the All Blacks vs the Springboks. Since when were straight scrum put-ins not required?! I haven't seen one yet in over 50 minutes of play, from either side (although South Africa have had most of the scrums).

What next -- lineouts?
The scrum feeds were just as bad in the second semi. The RWC website claimed in September that refs "have been told to take care that scrum-halfs feed the ball in straight so that there is a fair contest between hookers". What's the point of having laws if no-one polices them?

I haven't seen a single straight scrum-feed for the entire tournament. Having said that, I haven't seen a straight scrum feed in an international game for about 3 years.
Remember the good old days when the hooker signaled for the feed by tapping on the prop's shoulder and it was a fair hooking contest? Hookers nowadays don't even know how to hook.

RWC final at Freistoss in Chur Sat 4.30pm

All Kiwis and Aussies (we won't hold it against you ) and other rugby enthusiasts welcome. Don't miss the haka!

The venue:

If enough people turn up, they'll show it on the big screen (this is Chur after all ) so get there early if you can.

See ya there!

Dear mods

Why was this thread merged into this thread? This is a thread about RWC in general whereas my thread was telling rugby fans about where to watch the final in Chur, a very specific topic. If this was in the wrong section, could a kindly mod just move it and make it a separat thread again please?

Much obliged.

To me, the title (of your now-merged thread) says you can't tell a plural from a possessive...

Re: Rwc 2015

I was under the impression the RWC had finished. Oh.

In that case who should I support tomorrow? The alcoholic antipodeans with the whiny accent or the whiny accented antipodean alcoholics?
